Celebrating Sophia Loren, Style Icon | East Coast Limousine Service | Scoop.it
Milan Women’s Fashion Week SS15 is, as with every season, a celebration of all things fashion. But a week of cat walks, must haves and celeb spotting wouldn’t be complete without taking a moment to honour our style icons. That’s exactly what this exhibition does, celebrating the Sophia Loren.

'The benefits of Italian life can't be matched'

'The benefits of Italian life can't be matched' | East Coast Limousine Service | Scoop.it

American Greg Culver moved to Lake Como with his wife and baby daughter, putting their careers on hold to soak up the Italian culture and learn the language. He tells The Local how they fell in love with the food and scenery of northern Italy, and why the wine might persuade them to stay longer than planned.

Mariano Pallottini's curator insight, December 13, 2013 11:22 AM

Here is a summary of their interview: I have quickly developed a deep love for northern Italy, from the rolling hills of Piemonte to the breathtaking Dolomite mountain range. But Lake Como somehow stands out, even against this beautiful backdrop .
I would suggest that anyone visiting the lake allow plenty of time to experience all the different towns along its shores. From Como to Lecco and then Bellagio to Menaggio - you’re guaranteed to experience something new each and every time.
We have completely removed fast food from our diets - she has never seen the inside of a McDonalds or Burger King. Olive oil has replaced butter and fruit has replaced dessert. The Mediterranean diet is something we hope sticks with her forever.
Both my wife and I have grown fond of the lifestyle and our family life here in Italy. Sometimes the differences between our native America and Italy can be frustrating (lack of conveniences, for example), but the benefits of living in Italy cannot be matched anywhere in the world.
We are learning more about food, wine and history than five lifetimes of books could offer in our native country.

Exploring Olive Oil Culture In Tuscany | East Coast Limousine Service | Scoop.it

Olive oil is a super ingredient with the ability to enhance the flavors of a dish while also adding antioxidants and heart-healthy benefits. That being said, there are many misconceptions that exist on the product. That’s why — with the help of agronomist Marco Soldani of Castelfalfi and agronomist Francesco Caselli of Castello di Gabbiano — we’re debunking some of olive oils most common misconceptions. Use the following facts to help you choose a top-of-the-line olive oil:

Research uncovers diets of middle, lower class in Pompeii

No fries, but how about a side of giraffe leg? Surprising discoveries result from an excavation site in the buried city of Pompeii.

Mariano Pallottini's curator insight, January 12, 10:49 AM

Here the best highlight of the article: 

 - Findings revealed foods that would have been inexpensive and widely available, such as grains, fruits, nuts, olives, lentils, local fish and chicken eggs, as well as minimal cuts of more expensive meat and salted fish from Spain. Waste from neighboring drains would also turn up less of a variety of foods, revealing a socioeconomic distinction between neighbors.

A drain from a central property revealed a richer variety of foods as well as imports from outside Italy, such as shellfish, sea urchin and even delicacies including the butchered leg joint of a giraffe.

"That the bone represents the height of exotic food is underscored by the fact that this is thought to be the only giraffe bone ever recorded from an archaeological excavation in Roman Italy," says Ellis. "How part of the animal, butchered, came to be a kitchen scrap in a seemingly standard Pompeian restaurant not only speaks to long-distance trade in exotic and wild animals, but also something of the richness, variety and range of a non-elite diet." -
