«Ci hanno tenuti sul filo per tre anni. Ma finalmente il brevetto americano è stato concesso». Una gran massa di capelli corvini e due occhi di carbone che brillano emozionati: la scienziata Maria Grano non nasconde la soddisfazione. La «sua» creatura, quella molecola Irisina che sconfigge l’osteoporosi, ha superato l’ultimo ostacolo burocratico pe...

Apulia has long been a crossroads of peoples and cultures for its natural and geographic attributes; a bridge between East and West, it is a promontory that separates the Adriatic from the Tyrrhennian Sea.  A hamlet of Castrignano del Capo, in the Province of Lecce, Santa Maria di Leuca is the southernmost point in Salento, striking the visitor’s e...

In Italy we have a real veneration for St. Anthony the Abbot (not to be confused with Anthony the patron saint of Padua): let’s review the dozens of events organized in his honor on January 17th, the date of his death, from Lombardy to Sicily.

Thousands and thousands (tens of thousands? millions?) of nonnas can’t be wrong. They’re the ones rolling and shaping taralli, in their cute little kitchens in Puglia (or Sicily or Napoli or ...). With quick, deft movements they work, talking about how easy they are to make. How good they taste. How they’re the perfect bite with a cold glass of whi...
