I needed to buy some food in Ancona so went into a healthy-looking fast food place. A dish of vegetables, some fruit . . . suitable nourishment for a fussy vegetarian.

“Cos’è dentro?” I enquired.

The assistant said something I didn’t understand. He thought for a moment and then said:

“Sai Bambi?”


“È Bambi dentro.”
