E poiché i contributi che il governo fa arrivare nelle nostre 81 Camere attive in 55 Paesi del mondo vengono spesi benissimo, chiediamo che non ci vengano tolti ma anzi, semmai, incrementati".

Abandoned architecture: Exploring Italy's deserted building sites

Across the south of Italy, unfinished foundations and concrete frames rise from a landscape of rolling hills and thick canopies of trees.

1,600-Year-Old Illuminated Manuscript of the Aeneid Digitized & Put Online by The Vatican

It's fair to say that every period which has celebrated the literature of antiquity has held epic Roman poet Virgil in extremely high regard, and that was never more the case than during the early Christian and medieval eras. Born in 70 B.C.—writes Clyde Pharr in the introduction to his scholarly Latin text—"Vergil was ardently admired even in his own...

Three Italian Reds for Changing Times

A millennial fellow speaking about his interest in wine: Him: "I'll drink anything, man, but I'm all about the reds." Me: "Cool. What do you look for in a red wine?" Him: "Massiveness.

The House That Love Built — Before It Was Gone

SOME OF MY FAVORITE STORIES are stories of houses. "The Spoils of Poynton," about a house full of beloved antiquities. "Rebecca," about a house haunted by a first wife.

What is the Mediterranean Diet? A couple of months ago, the New York Times tried to answer this question, emphasizing that "for decades, health authorities have argued that the diet of people living in Mediterranean countries, with its emphasis on olive oil, nuts and fresh produce, is a driving force behind the region's historically low rates of heart disease".   However, relaunching...
