On November 17, Santa Croce and TF launched a crowdfunding campaign to restore the loggia of the Pazzi Chapel—an area in front of the chapel, open on three sides with a series of arches.

The medieval and the modern merge in this ambitious project to raise 95,000  dollars in just 31 days using the world's largest crowdfunding platform, Kickstarter: in fact, this is the first ever Kickstarter campaign by a major Florentine cultural institution to raise funds for a restoration.

Pizza Hut Asked a Bunch of Old Italian People to Judge Its Pizza

Pizza Hut went to Italy to get the pizza experts’ take on our new menu. All we can say is... they barely tried our pizzas and they don’t like change. [...]

Pizza Hut has just started a major rebranding effort. Headlined the “Flavor of Now,” the campaign aims to give a much-needed boost to Pizza Hut’s U.S. business by wooing customers with dozens of new pizza options.  The best of the lot is probably the one set in Sorrento, where we watch as a bunch of older Italian people express shock, indignation, and just plain confusion at a variety of Pizza Hut’s new pizza offerings. “Participants were paid, but still don't like change”  [source]

Italy's (Non-Existent) Olive Harvest 2014

Italy's (Non-Existent) Olive Harvest 2014 | La Gazzetta Di Lella - News From Italy - Italiaans Nieuws | Scoop.it
The olive harvest 2014 is going down as the worst harvest in a century with Italy losing the majority of its crop. But why?

A combination of bad weather (very mild winter 2013/14 followed by a rainy summer) has led to Italy's most disastrous olive harvest of the century. Right, the century is still young, but we can only pray that we'll never have to see our grove looking as miserable as this autumn until the end of it. To explain what I'm talking about here some facts and figures from the last three olive harvests in our Tuscan grove and the resulting yield of extra virgin olive oil (EVOO):  

In 2012 we picked 542 kg of olives and pressed 74 kg of EVOO (yield 13%).
In 2013 we picked 713 kg of olives and pressed 78 kg of EVOO (yield 11%).
In 2014 we picked   90 kg of olives and pressed   8 kg of EVOO (yield  9%).

Research uncovers diets of middle, lower class in Pompeii

Research uncovers diets of middle, lower class in Pompeii | La Gazzetta Di Lella - News From Italy - Italiaans Nieuws | Scoop.it

Mariano Pallottini's curator insight, January 12, 2014 1:49 PM

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." -

CNN PRODUCER NOTE Cheryl Ferguson, of Urbino, Italy, shared these pictures to show the world that there is more to Italy than Rome. 'Yes, it snowed in Rome and they are not used to it. But, we are entombed in snow and in a state of emergency,' she says. Ferguson and her boyfriend were trapped in their house and could not get out until they called a private plower, but nevertheless considers herself fortunate. 'We are lucky to still have electricity, water, gas, etc. even though the lights have gone out and come back at least 20 times since the 31st of January,' she says. The consistent snowfall has resulted in a height of 1.5 meters of snow - shoulder level for 5-foot-7-inch Ferguson. 'I heard this afternoon that they are calling for at least another three days of snow, with some very heavy snow tomorrow,' she says...
