Le Talpe

Via Panisperna 222a, Rome, Italy
Amanda Ruggeri's rating: 5
Le Talpe calls itself a "concept store," which—since the place manages to be so many things at once—is probably the best moniker. The store-cum-gallery promotes up-and-coming artists and designers, particularly Italians, selling everything from their art to jewelry to clothing. Every month, all of the items in the store are switched out and new items (and designers) brought in, often according to a specific theme. While the objects range widely—expect everything from necklaces made from medical tubing to porcelain figurines—they all somehow manage to be simultaneously funky and chic. Check out the website for the gallery's list of ongoing events, including readings and aperitivi.
