According to a Ripley transcript, Dickie Greenleaf’s spacious Rome apartment (the one Tom Ripley moves into after he kills Dickie off the coast of San Remo) is located at via di Monserrato, 34. Which is “my” street, so to speak, and a relatively recent memory.

Following the 2017 Cannes Film Festival Tatiana and I visited Venice, Tuscany (Radda in Chianti) and Rome, and then, during our last couple of days, drove north to La Spezia to have lunch with Luca Guadagnino.

During our three days in Rome we stayed just down the street from Dickie’s place at via di Monserrrato, 154, a Palazzo Farnese historical building which is only a block of so from Pier Luigi, the city’s greatest seafood restaurant and among the greatest worldwide.
