It seems that the Romans don’t like the idea of a Chinatown in Rome. Which is funny, because much of the Italian Market in Philadelphia, and the ever shrinking Little Italy in New York are owned by Vietnamese (Philly) and Chinese (NY). Maybe they should close them down in protest? Who coined the word “ghetto” anyway?
But see here (and here) for debunking of the myth that Italians got pasta from the Chinese.
