Anna and Marika are two young women who sometimes masquerade as lyric opera characters and news broadcasters, but who also give us some authentic everyday Italian conversation, and show us around the shops, parks, and eating places of Rome. These videos are generally geared to beginners, with some moments of fast talking by restaurant owners and the like.
