Mamah Borthwick: After deciding to leave both of our spouses in Chicago and run away to Europe together, my lover Frank Lloyd Wright and I traveled here in 1909. During our year in Europe, this city was our base, from which we traveled. I was happily, blissfully in love.
Sophie Dahl: As a teenager, I dreamed of traveling to this city and studying art history. "I wanted to walk around a market with a basket bursting full of figs and cherries in a Sophia Loren dress." However, due to my parent's complete disapproval of this plan, my days as an art history student never took place. Instead, I came to this city around 1999 for modeling work.
Viggo Mortensen: I traveled here in 1995 to film scenes for the movie The Portrait of a Lady.
