Part book shop part fancy dress shop, there's nothing THAT special about Profondo Rosso as a store compared to other fancy dress outlets. But the real gem is the basement, a dark dungeon with props from Dario Argento movies that is quite creepy if you...More

I heard about this place and wanted to visit since I'm 15yo. 25 years later, finally I'm here. Many books get your attention as soon as you get in, all what you come for : giallo, Argento, Italian horror and legendary names (Fulci, Bava, etc)....More

Very nice place for any giallo / horror movies fans. Full of good stuff, the museum is also cool and you can see many things from the movies of Dario Argento and other movies. And the cherry on the cake was to meet Mr Cozzi...More

What an interesting shop and what a disappointing museum! Actually I went there to see this "horror museum". Maybe my expectations were too high. But the EUR 5 could have been spent better. There is hardly anything exciting down in the cellar. This premise is...More

This wonderful shop is small but it is crammed with fantastic books, t shirts, posters, models and DVD's that any lover of Italian horror and giallo will love. Downstairs is the Dario Argento museum with about 10 exhibits featuring props from Argento's films. Best of...More

If you are into Italian cinema and Italian horror movies, you probably know about this place already. If not, it's a definite must, not far from Via Cola di Rienzo. The place was founded by Argento himself in the late 1980s and has a small...More

We visited the Profondo Rosso store on our trip, mainly because my husband wanted to go! It was €5 each to go in, which was an increase of €2 since we did our research. There were some interesting (and creepy!) original props there and some...More

Originally opened in 1989 by renowned Italian horror director Dario Argento, Rome's 'little shop of horrors' is now run by the wonderful Luigi Cozzi (director of 'Starcrash', 'Contamination', 'Hercules') and his beautiful partner Letizia, both of whom will welcome you with open arms to their...More

Just steps away from the chaos of the centre, Prati is
the closest Rome gets to calm. Meticulously planned in
a neat grid, quite unlike neighbouring Borgo, Prati is
a local favourite for its aesthetic organisation and
wide streets lined with a range of boutiques for every
shopping fantasy. Nonnis pushing baby carriages and
gossiping teens own every inch of the sidewalk, but
that’s only during business hours. Once the sun sets,
