Time passes, life changes and we can’t stop growing old, as a song says. This seems to be particularly true once you turn 40. Far from saying 40 is “old” in any way: I don’t think it is and I certainly don’t feel old, unless I’ve been out to dinner with friends the night before and had a glass of red too many, in which case  I feel ancient the foll...

Jennifer Stucko didn’t want Prota Fiori to be the typical made-in-Italy footwear launch. After gaining insight into the world of high-end fashion and footwear by holding positions at brands such as Giorgio Armani, Valentino and A. Testoni, Stucko began to think about fashion’s faulty relationship with sustainability. With pride in her heritage as a...

In five-inch heels and a lace pencil skirt, Milan is taking baby steps into the new normal. With supermodels on the catwalk and Paul Mescal in the front row, Fendi had flashbulbs popping at a fashion show for the first time since before lockdown. Italian fashion is back in business, although not business at usual. At Dolce & Gabbana, guests accesso...

What’s the first thing that comes to  your mind when you think of Italians? They dress well: yeah, sure. They know how to cook! True, true.  They are passionate: there we go, we’re getting close to the point.

It gets stereotyped as a city of communists, students and pasta obsessives – which it is – but it’s also a dynamic, forward-thi...

The beauty of life in Roseland is that, as varied as it was, it had happenings that were so dependable as to be practically traditional. That memory endures even in a pandemic world where everyone’s events have been curtailed, cancelled, downplayed, postponed, simplified and placed in a downward spiral. Roseland’s traditions make reminiscing easy....

If you think of “Made in Italy,” two words spring to mind: quality and tradition. No business seems to embody them better than  violin-making these days. A quintessentially Italian craft, the making of stringed instruments is associated with the  Lombardy town of Cremona since the 16th century.  Stradivari, Guarneri del Gesù and Amati produced in t...

Making your way up the driveway to the garage door of Tony Liotta’s house on North Quincy on a chilly September afternoon, you can already smell his latest labor of love. Like any good Italian, within minutes of stepping into his kitchen, whether an old friend or a stranger, he’s served you homemade olive oil and bread, and his dish of the day, hot...

While many events have been forced to cancel this year, it seems art will triumph — at least while safely outdoors. Bakersfield Museum of Art announced its Via Arté Italian Street Painting event will take place next month at The Marketplace.  This year's festival will be held from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Oct. 17 and 18 at The Marketplace, 9000 Ming Ave. S...
