Le Camere di commercio italiane all’estero a Renzi: "Il Governo ci sostenga. Con noi l'export decolla"

export-"Renzi, l'Italia che esporta chiede un nuovo modo di fare promozione, che metta insieme "il Sistema–Paese" con l'enorme potenziale delle comunità di affari nel mondo, l'Ice con l'azione delle Camere di commercio italiane all'estero.

“Made in Italy” takes over Rio Olympics

A swimming record just one hundred days before the Olympics Games is a record in itself, given the tough weeks Rio de Janeiro is presently going through, struggling with a request for impeachment against Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff, a health emergency and street protests.   As it awaits the arrival of the Olympic torch that hit the road on April 21 from...

Ordering coffee in Italy: the 10 commandments

Ordering coffee in Italy: the 10 commandments

I once met an Italian who didn't drink coffee. He made light of the fact, but you could see that he was tired of having to explain his disability every time some new acquaintance uttered the standard Italian greeting: "Prendiamo un caffè?" ("Fancy a coffee?").   His breezy but faintly passive-aggressive manner concealed, I suspect, deep pools of self-doubt and underground lakes...

Etruscan stone could help unravel enigma of one of Italy's first civilizations

A rare inscription found on a stone unearthed near Florence is exciting archaeologists who say it may help reveal the secrets of the Etruscans, one of Italy's earliest and most enigmatic civilizations.   The Etruscans flourished in central Italy 2,500 years ago but their culture and language were assimilated into the Roman empire.

36 Hours on the Amalfi Coast

In a 1953 Harper's Bazaar essay, John Steinbeck drew back the curtain on Positano, most likely changing the course of history for the most picturesque town on the Amalfi Coast. This romanticized 30-mile stretch of Italian coast on the southern edge of the Sorrentine Peninsula still impresses with cliffs towering above pebbled coves and villages hugging improbably steep slopes.   And famed...

When the French try to beat the Italians at Italian food, things get ugly

Italians hate to see their delicate cuisine bastardized by foreigners—especially when those foreigners are French. So it was when Italians—or those of us who cared enough to pay attention to bad cooking advice from the other side of the Alps—became outraged over Demotivateur, a French entertainment site that on April 7 published perhaps the most awful carbonara recipe imaginable (the site...
