Searching for Dickie Greenleaf
I've been watching the Talented Mr. Ripley a lot lately because I've been working on a spring concept called "Hello Ravello." As I walked down the Via Condotti, I heard Dickie Greenleaf's voice in my head singing the praises of Battistoni. The 62 year old shop is tucked away through the cortile of a palazzo half way down said street. Its continued success, despite its discreet location speaks volumes about the cut and quality of their product. No doubt Dickie would still be a frequent customer.
