This year in August, shopping in Rome will be different because lots of boutiques and department stores will be open. Some of them will close only for few days around the 15th , the rest, especially around via del Corso, will keep their door open. Same idea in via Frattina and via Borgognona. Even, around piazza Navona, some boutiques will not shut down such as Josephine de Huertas and Co in via del Governo Vecchio. Josephine already shows in her boutique the new autumn-winter collection with a lot of pieces from Paul Smith that I love. Here, as an example, I was there with the fashion editor from TG1 RAI, Barbara Modesti (in the picture below). She bought some summer sales but had a glance also to the new upcoming season.
