Pizza, pasta and pinot grigio. What's not to love? Mixed with culture and the sandy waters of the Adriatic, Italy has to be one of my favourite places.

Like football, truffles and flu, tourism also has an off season in Italy. It’s from November through February.

“Even if I set out to make a film about a fillet of sole, it would be about me,” Federico Fellini once said. The Academy Award-winning director of La Dolce Vita(1960) and Amarcord(1973) devoted a great deal of his art to reviving memories from his childhood, which was spent in Rimini, an old Roman town in the southeastern part of Emilia-Romagna (th...

Kneeling before St. Sigismund, Sigismondo Pandolfo Malatesta looks proud and dignified, reflecting his fame as a skilled and daring condottiero: thus Piero della Francesca portrayed him in the fresco he was asked to produce for the Tempio Malatestiano in Rimini, a landmark monument of this seaside city in Emilia-Romagna and the symbol of the power...
