Earlier this year, I visited the Italian island of Sardinia (Sardegna), which is located approximately 220 miles southwest of Rome.  My interest in visiting Sardinia was sparked when I learned of its summer popularity among mainland Italians, particularly for its beaches, which are noted as some of the most beautiful in the world.  However, upon vi...

It is no secret that most Italians have an inherent eye for good design, and Italian love for home is second to none. Take these two and combine them, and what you get is the essence of Italian interior design. If you are looking for a way to meet all that you require from your home and make it the cynosure of all eyes at the same time, look no fur...

Rosso come il colore-simbolo Ferrari; animato da tanta passione come tutte le “creature su ruote” che nascono nella prolifica fetta di terra compresa fra l’Appennino ed il Po. E, come loro, rivolto a proiettare un nuovo messaggio tecnologico al mondo. Accanto alla “tradizionale” produzione a motore termico, che da sempre ne rappresenta il fiore all...

I envy the first Italian Americans: those brave souls who catapulted themselves into the unknown and stared down countless hardships to create a better life for their families in a strange, new land.

Lapo Elkann, the grandson of Fiat titan Gianni Agnelli, launched Garage Italia in 2015, but the creative design firm already has much to show for itself. It has dabbled in numerous arenas including furniture, planes, and boats. And with a Fiat heir captaining the ship, it has put its special touches on a number of automobiles as well. The latest is...

Construction on a new mid-rise condo development in Miami’s Surfside neighborhood hit a milestone last week as crews topped-off the 12-story ‘Arte’ project at 8955 Collins Avenue. The upcoming oceanfront residences come from Italian architect Antonio Citterio in collaboration with local architect Kobi Karp. It represents the first U.S. building for...

If asked to name the Italian car brand with the grandest pedigree in motorsports, perhaps your answer would be Ferrari. But the cognoscenti know that Alfa Romeo has a more extensive racing history. The record includes the first grand prix world championship in 1923, the first two Formula One world championships in 1950-51, four wins at Le Mans, 10...

If you’re a dog owner, there’s probably one thing you dread about holidays like New Year’s Eve or the Fourth of July. Fireworks scare dogs. Imagine you have no idea what fireworks are. Suddenly you see bright lights and hear explosions coming from the sky. You’d be pretty terrified, too. Fireworks wreak havoc on animals, and vet visits skyrocket ar...
