Sharing Images Long Before Social Media: Renaissance Prints in Maiolica and Bronze

Sharing images of paintings and sculptures by the greatest artists of the time was not as easy as pressing a button on an iPhone during the Renaissance. Jamie Gabbarelli, curator of prints, drawings, and photographs at the Rhode Island School of Design’s Museum of Art, argued during his lecture at the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C. that Renaissance innovation with prints broke with the past in crucial ways. His exhibit currently in the West building of the National Gallery explores the question of what happens when an image is shared with the world.

Borrowing costs continue to rise as new premier prepares to announce ministers.

Food Network personality Giada De Laurentiis says "third time’s the charm” at her new restaurant, GDL Italian by Giada in Baltimore.

That is the story of my house in Italy, which my husband, Mick, and I bought 23 years ago when it was just a bit of hill perched above a big lake in the little town of Trevignano, just north of Rome.

In the 1980s and early ’90s, a new youth wave hit northern Italy. The movement was underscored by something referred to as “Afro/cosmic” music, a blend of synthesized disco sounds and African-inspired dance beats that swept through the nightclubs of small towns like Brescia, Bologna, and Verona.

Migrants sit on green plastic chairs in a soundless waiting room. Volunteers call them over, one by one. On a coffee table, Italy's populist politicians look up from the front page of an unread newspaper.

Debt of Italian state agency Cassa Depositi e Prestiti (CDP) is taking a hammering on a par with that suffered by Italy’s government bonds on fears the incoming government will use it as a vehicle to fund a borrowing binge.

From congenial laid-back bars with views of the water to trendy terraces accompanied by sumptuous cocktails, find the best spot for an evening tipple with Telegraph Travel's Italian Lakes expert, Kiki Deere. 

In those last, fretful minutes in Rome, when every second felt like an age and the final whistle seemed as though it would never come, Liverpool’s fans sang to stave off the nerves.

Two people were killed and 18 others injured when a regional train collidedwith a truck in northern Italy on Wednesday, Reuters reports.

The Italian Lakes hosts a myriad of exciting events throughout the year. From an archaic car and motorcycle competition held in the beautiful parkland of Villa d'Este, to glorious wine festivals, Telegraph Travel expert, Kiki Deere outlines her favourites.
