Statesman among the most beloved in Italy, admired by the people beyond the personal political faith, Sandro Pertini has remained over the years the symbol of the proximity of political power to ordinary citizens. In the month of April 25, a date that commemorates the liberation of Italy from the Nazi-fascist yoke thanks to the intervention of the...

A trip from Levanto to Lerici in the magnificent and intact Ligurian scenario of the Cinque Terre is truly a special experience. It’s an authentic venture into the magic of multicoloured historic villages situated in a spectacular vertical position overlooking the seaside, on steep land where vineyards reign.

On March 2, at the age of 107, Gillo Dorfles left us, an exemplary witness of the events of Italian design, art and culture. This extraordinary observer of our times supported the need for design to be studied outside the specialist schools as well, because it is the basis of our way of life.

Here we are talking again about the Italian language. Today we are going to talk about grammar and one of the most confusing and probably one of the most common mistake for Italian learners: auxiliaries! Oh yeah, are you ready to start? Hopefully I’ll be able to help you out a little to better understand this topic.

This week I'm going to focus on the wines from Avellino in the Campania region of southwestern Italy. You may also know this area and coast by way of the Gulf of Napoli or one of my favorites, the stunning Amalfi Coast. If you haven’t been I strongly recommend adding it to your list next time you visit Italy.

Necessity really is the mother of invention. For years I bemoaned the lack of literary venues for Italian-American writers. I strongly identify with my Italian-American heritage and am a writer - a poet specifically - so it naturally followed that I would desire to not only be able to submit to a publication or publications dedicated to IA writi...

Let’s talk history, ancient and more recent, before getting to the modern-day story of Cangiari, Italy’s first ethical high fashion brand. Cangiari’s creations are currently gracing catwalks from Milan to Paris to Dubai, but the label is so much more than its striking silhouettes and fabrics.
