The Authors in Rome

Our first game was against Capannelle CC, the champions of Italy, at their ground off the Appian Way. The night before we were invited to drinks at their clubhouse... the setting was a special one. We could see the Alban Hills, where Alba Longa, the ancestral home of the Romans, once stood, and where the Pope has his summer residence. Afterwards, we went straight from pitch to palazzo, for the first of several incredible receptions.

The trip took us past the famous Roman catacombs, along the Appian Way towards the racetrack in Capanelle. There was an incredible amount of Wisteria to admire – it seems to grow wild and in great profusion here, rather like the Buddlia in England- as well as the spectacular Stone Pines which are almost a trademark for Rome.
