Particularly interesting is the story of the Tagliolini Alfredo, a dish that takes its name after the restaurateur Alfredo Di Lelio, whom in 1927 proposed this recipe to Douglas Fairbanks and Mary Pickford, two Hollywood celebrities on their honeymoon in Rome, which is based on heavy cream, butter and Parmigiano cheese. The dish became famous across the Atlantic thanks to the media that took up and amplified this story, transforming this dish into an icon of the Italian-American cuisine. After Second World War, Alfredo Di Lelio moved his restaurant from via Della Scrofa to the prominent Piazza Augusto Imperatore, thus becoming a magnet for American travelers. While there is no person in the USA who does not know the recipe for “Tagliolini Alfredo”, the dish is almost unknown in Italy, with the exception of the city of Rome itself.
