While this recipe could easily be prepared in any Italian coastal town, it is the Italian Riviera that comes to mind whenever I prepare it. Breathtaking Ligurian towns like Portofino, Santa Margherita, Rapallo, and Genoa have magical landscapes that are almost as sumptuous as the local cuisine. The region of Liguria is noted for a very fragrant variety of basil (Genoa, after all, is the birthplace of pesto), as well as wonderful produce and seafood.

The Debate. “Let’s Wake Up Italics”

"Italics." There are more than 250 million people around the world who belong to a community that began with Italy. Many of them don’t speak Italian, don’t live in Italy, and perhaps haven’t even been there. Despite this, they feel as if Italy is a part of their being. This “Italian” identity outside of Italy began thanks to emigration, but it has since developed into something more. Piero Bassetti—a renowned entrepreneur, politician, and public intellectual—defines this feeling as “Italicity.” Bassetti presented his new book and manifesto, "Let’s Wake Up Italics!" at the Consulate General of Italy in New York.

Manifesto for a Glocal Future," published by Bordighera Press. What follows is what I feel about this interesting idea.
