In Rome, you may hear the idiom phrase “There is no tripe for cats”, indicating that there is no more profit in the company you are going to undertake. It seems that Ernesto Nathan, mayor of Rome from 1907 to 1913, decided to delete from the municipal budget the monthly purchase of the tripe, which became too expensive. The food was purchased for cats, which are indispensable for hunting mice in the Capitol. Hence the famous word tended to indicate the shortage of means.
The tripe is a classic of Roman cuisine and down there is the version of Sora Lella actress and Roman restorer.
