New York City carries all sorts of stories on its streets. Valentina Perissi’s is hard to miss. Maybe its her multi- dimensional leather jacket, or hand- painted handbag, but above all its her Italian persistence. She chooses neither to walk as fast as others, nor to race anyone to skyscraping success, rather she allows her intricate work and exper...

When opera star Joyce DiDonato told us she wanted to sing centuries-old Italian love songs at the Tiny Desk we weren't surprised. But when she said she was bringing a jazz band to back her up, we did a double take. But that's Joyce, always taking risks.
