  • Umbria Jazz 2017 – Raffaele Casarano, Gaetano Curreri, Giuliano Sangiorgi, Gino Paoli, Vanessa Tagliabue Yorke
    Non poteva che essere affidata alle note virtuose e delicate di Danilo Rea l’apertura del concerto di omaggio a Luigi Tenco sul palco di Umbria Jazz. Un lungo viaggio, con un alternarsi di voci con timbri e grane a volte pastosi, intensi, struggenti, per lasciare spazio a quelli più pop, ma sempre contraddistinti da un unico legame, solo apparentemente distante, tra il jazz e la musica d’autore.
  • Novelist Igiaba Scego, the author of "Adua," interweaves time, people, and tragedies, as her solitary character, Adua, whispers her most secret thoughts and dreams to Bernini's marble statue of an elephant in front of the church of Santa Maria sopra Minerva.
  • 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.
  • If you think Italian food is off-limits for people with diabetes, think again. My motivation for writing this book was to change the way Italian cuisine is viewed abroad and to demonstrate ways in which traditional Italian food can be part of a diabetes-friendly eating plan. While thoughts of the bel paese (“beautiful country”) generally conjure up the image of platters of carbohydrate-rich pastas and fat-laden sauces, authentic Italian cuisine is both healthful and delicious.

    Panna cotta, Italian for “cooked cream,” is a specialty of northern Italy’s Piedmont region—an area known for its superior dairy products. Panna cotta, or some version of it, has long been popular throughout most of Europe and in other countries along the Mediterranean.
  • Mid-summer Italy is sagra time, when even the smallest town celebrates itself and its identity, especially but not only through its culinary specialties, from wine to chestnuts, cheese, honey and even pumpkins. Visitors are welcome.

    Like so many of Italy’s best dishes, bruschetta owes its origins to la cucina povera, whose customary marriage of frugality and ingenuity among Italy’s peasant class dictated that nothing edible ever be tossed out. In the case of bruschetta, stale bread is made over to something not just edible but really tasty, by the mere act of toasting and topping with quality ingredients like sun-ripened, organic tomatoes and an impeccable extra virgin olive oil.
  • Love clothes or not, everyone wears them. However, the apparel industry can be guilty of unethical and harmful business practices that affect many vital human and environmental issues. Thankfully, people like Simone Cipriani of the Ethical Fashion Initiative are making a difference.
