Yet another bad adventure for the owner of the I Magnifici pizzeria, a stone’s throw from Tiburtina station, which remained closed for 20 minutes yesterday in its restaurant, hostage to a drunken immigrant.
“Last night, around 10.30 pm, a stranger wrapped in a blanket came in and started screaming,” says Donato.

“He started to spill the beer on the windows of the pizzeria – Donato continues – and then he pulled a kitchen knife from an envelope, I prayed that at that moment nobody would pass because I don’t know what could have happened”.
