Italy makes a whole lot of wine. In fact, according to the most recent figures from the International Organization of Vine and Wine, Italy leads the globe in wine, accounting for nearly 20 percent of the world’s production. Despite the impressive volume, many drinkers are far more familiar with French Chardonnays and Napa Cabs than they are with It...

Si scrive «basic» o «light», a seconda della sponda dell’Atlantico nella quale ci si trova. Si traduce «spendi di meno per il volo, ma bagaglio in stiva e scelta del posto sono un extra». E l’«extra» può toccare pure i 140 euro. A passeggero. È la nuova fase dei collegamenti Europa-Usa. E stavolta non riguarda soltanto chi decide di salire a bordo...

"La restituzione da parte dello Speed Art Museum di Louisville del cratere a calice a figure rosse proveniente da Paestum permette il ritorno in Italia di un reperto che è parte del patrimonio culturale nazionale. Il prezioso calice, come sempre avvenuto in questa legislatura in simili casi, verrà al più presto destinato alla comunità da cui è stat...

Fancy a glass of chilled, fizzy, acidic red wine? I suspect not. It doesn’t sound very enticing, particularly on a cold February day. As one who finds it hard to love that Australian speciality, sparkling (red) Shiraz, until recently I have always avoided Lambrusco like the plague. Lambrusco is a sweet, red, fizzy wine that weaned a generation of A...

C’era una volta… non iniziano così un po’ tutte le storie? Di solito le favole si, e anche se questa sembra una favola, in realtà è una storia vera: la storia di come un gesto d’amore e un cibo di casa siano diventati simbolo della cucina italiana nel mondo. Chi ha viaggiato un po’ se ne sarà accorto: fuori dai nostri confini nazionali, specialment...

The challenge of continually re-inventing oneself for the sake of avoiding stagnation is a task best left to those who have not only a thick skin, impervious to contempt and failure, but also an appetite for novel and unique approaches to their craft. The occupation where this is most readily apparent is in the realm of entertainment, as it is ofte...

The secret ingredient in today's quality Italian wines is a man named Luigi Veronelli. Born on this day in 1926, in Milan, capital city of Italy's Lombardy region, Veronelli was to become one of the world's greatest wine thinkers. Drinker, intellectual, TV personality, he was also publisher, magazine editor (that the three titles he launched in 195...

In the best spy thrillers, rather than turn over a secret paper, the spy eats the secret. In 16th century Italy, the shrewd Italians literally ate the secret to one of the area’s most beautiful industries, the famous Venetian glassworks. To make crystal-clear glass, the Venetians used a plant that grows in salty soil, often along marshes and coasta...

Ferrari said on Thursday that 2017 was "another record year" for the Italian luxury car maker, as it is raced into the pole position for increased profitability and output again this year and a further reduction in its debt.

It tells of the brand's creativity through the display of...
