"Florals? For spring? Groundbreaking.” A sarcastic Miranda Priestly declaimed in the 2006 cult movie The Devil Wears Prada. Besides being downright appealing, this selection of dresses and accessories (including a beauty essential) will literally make you feel “in bloom-” especially when the arrival of spring and summer in New York decides to make us wait a little longer… And we’re quite sure Ms. Priestly would agree, too.

Photographer Seth Vane, in his mesmerizing series Tunnels to the sky, captured perfect symmetry of these piazzas and the peaceful reverie they inspire.

Italy has the second lowest percentage of university graduates in the European Union, Eurostat statistics released on Wednesday showed. Just over one in four Italians (26.2 percent) aged between 30 and 34 has completed a university degree, a figure only outdone in Romania, where it was 25.6 percent.

On the eve of the final stage of the 2007 Giro d’Italia, Danilo Di Luca greeted the press in Verona. All that stood between “The Killer from Spoltore” and Italian cycling history was a routine sprint stage into Milan.

The head of NATO praised Italy Thursday for increasing its defense spending last year, an acknowledgement that came days after U.S. President Donald Trump said he had joked with Italy's prime minister about the need for Rome to "pay up."

French media conglomerate Vivendi on Tuesday vowed to forge ahead with its ambitions to make Italy a central plank of its strategy to create a southern European media powerhouse, despite regulatory setbacks from Italian authorities and a rancorous dispute with leading commercial broadcaster Mediaset.

Sicily’s Jews were banished from this island in 1492, the victims of a Spanish edict that forced thousands to leave and others to convert to Roman Catholicism. More than 500 years later, a nascent Jewish community is planting fresh roots in the Sicilian capital, reclaiming a lost, often painful, history, this time with the aid of the local diocese.

An Italian journalist returned home on Monday after being detained for two weeks in Turkey, apparently because he entered an area near the Syrian border without the necessary permission.

Michele Scarponi, who won the Giro d’Italia in 2011, died after being hit by a van while training on Saturday. He was 37.

The President of the European Parliament, Antonio Tajani, has hinted that any agreement on the rights of EU citizens in the UK and Britons living on the continent, would be under rulings of the ECJ.
