Italiani

June 2018 |
The most common question I hear from friends planning a trip to Italy is, “We are going for a week so what should we see?” A lifetime would probably not be enough to see all there is to see in the beautiful country. As we all know, art and history...

La Passeggiata

May 2018 |
The passeggiata is typically a pleasurably purposeless, slow, non-exertional mode of ambulation (fig. 1) perfected over the centuries by the Italians. It is meant to be enjoyed outdoors and preferably in good company (fig. 2). As the American...

Shopping… al fresco!

Angelita da Anzio

November 2017 |
A day trip to Anzio (fig. 1), south of Rome, led me to discover the wonderful but sad story of “Angelita da Anzio,” a young local child who became a legend over the years. In fact, a song popularized in the 60’s was titled after her. It all took...

Fare due passi
