Just thirty meters from the Trevi Fountain, you will come across a shop with a British-style atmosphere where you can smell the aroma of pipe tobacco and, should you wish, have a few puffs.
For smokers, serious or otherwise, Becker & Musicò is a not-to-be-missed stopover. The best Italian pipes can be purchased at the shop or, on request, hand-crafted to individual specifications in the workshop.
Becker & Musicò is featured in A Tailor-made Guidebook – Rome.

Véronique Marrier, project manager for graphic design at the National Center for Visual Arts (CNAP), has told Made in Town about her work, her views on French graphic design and its processes. After graduating in litterature in Bordeaux, Véronique Marrier opened in 1996 the first gallery to exhibit graphic design in France. She then moved to Paris in 2000 and worked for several organizations dedicated to graphic design such as the Chaumont Poster Festival or the Graphic Design month at Echirolles. She then worked with Marsha Emanuel on the Graphisme en France publication by the Ministry of Culture, before entering the CNAP in 2008 to become the project manager in charge of graphic design.
Starting on May 20th and in parallel of the D'Days, Made in Town is donning Denmark's colors and entering a 100% design program. The workshop is welcoming within its walls the Nordkraft project which showcases Danish lifestyle essentials through Internet: selling furniture, objects, graphic art, with brands and designers typical of the Nordic spirit.
In order to promote the know-how and the characteristics of La Rochère glass factory, located in Passavant-la-Rochère in the French department of Haute-Saône, Made in Town conducted a series of six video interviews of French and European designers, who have integrated the know-how of the glass factory into their creations. Each in their own way, they mastered glass.
