Many have tried to produce Italian occasion confectionery and bakery abroad; sometimes even using vegetable fat instead of butter. Yet it is difficult to produce a typical Italian product that meets the appropriate quality levels abroad. It’s thumbs up, therefore, for the export sector, currently only at 11% of national production, as the combinati...

When it comes to basking in the beauty of the Italian Riviera, the Cinque Terre is tops for me. But there’s much more to this region on the Mediterranean coast than those famous five villages.

The sole souvenir shop has a few knickknacks. Costs are modest for meals made from local ingredients — lentils, eggplant, peppers perhaps, plus the catch of the day from the emeral...

Catania is one of the most picturesque cities in Sicily, its landscape is dominated by the volcanic giant of the Mount Etna volcano which gives the city its suggestive lava rock palate.  Sicily’s second-biggest regional capital is a vital part of the transport network in the Mediterranean, a major port of call for export and an international airpor...

La mostra è stata un successo oltre le nostre aspettative. Ma quello che mi ha colpito di più è stato l’interesse dei giovani, il loro entusiasmo nel vedere gli artigiani al lavoro. Credo che oggi considerino il saper fare qualcosa con le mani una cosa cool»: Alberto Cavalli ha impiegato due anni a organizzare Homo Faber, la grande mostra sui mesti...

The refined Toscano cigar has reached an enviable milestone, celebrating its 200th year in an evening gala at the original Manifatture di Firenze cigar factory in Lucca, where the "200" cigar (200 mm with an exceptional tobacco and smoke time) was created especially for the anniversary. The Toscano cigar's ingenuity, passion, and Italian tradition...
