Chances are you’ll be enjoying a splash of prosecco in your Aperol spritzes this summer—we get it, the aromatic aperitif is delicious—but the versatile Italian bubbly is much more than the third ingredient in a summer cocktail. In fact, Prosecco’s effervescent beauty is best experienced sans additional liquor, straight from the bottle—a twee mini b...

The morning sunlight streams into the arched, wood-panelled bay window of the Sunset Tower hotel’s restaurant. Maria Giulia Prezioso Maramotti – in a classic Max Mara blazer, periwinkle in shade – is sitting at the table, bathed in sunshine and patiently awaiting a cup of peppermint tea. The serenity and romance of the moment seems a mere reprieve...
