Today, the industrial district of Prato is one of Europe’s largest and is a production model that has attracted the attention of the most eminent eco...

There's a revolution happening in menswear, and if you're watching close enough, you'll catch it. At Pitti Uomo, the Florence-based fashion week for men, recharged energy was in the air; of course, not too much — because Europeans just don't roll that way — but just enough to let anyone in attendance know that menswear has (finally) caught up. To m...

It’s a shame, but not a surprise, that braised onion pasta has never achieved avocado toast-like fame. Slow cooked onions are a study in slouchiness, an ode to the texture of mush.

Throughout history, no art movement has had an impact as profound as Italian Renaissance art. Regarded as a golden age of art, music, and literature, the period has inspired creatives for centuries, with iconic works by master artists like Leonardo da Vinci and Michelangelo serving as muses. Here, we explore the history and trace the trends of the...
