It wouldn’t seem like Easter in Italy without lamb on the dinner table. But lamb is actually the preferred meat not only for Easter meal but throughout the Summer. Italians enjoy lamb braised, stewed, grilled or roasted. Roast leg of lamb is a classic. Serve it with seasonal vegetables such as artichokes or fresh green peas. Italians cook lamb well done, but more mature American lamb tastes best when medium-rare. Be sure to allow time for the meat to rest after roasting it so it remains juicy.

Changing the Way We Live Our Lives. Stefano Boeri: Integrating Nature and Architecture

The idea of integrating architecture with nature has always been in the mind of architects and landscape designers. Throughout our evolutionary history we tried to combine these two concepts together. We have reached a moment in history where it is no longer necessary to sacrifice one for the other. Stefano Boeri is the first architect who had the opportunity to build a residential tower covered in trees, his “Bosco Verticale” (vertical forest).

Naples: Three Cities in One Beauty, Grandeur, and Mystery

Few cities in Italy or the world possess a patrimony as extraordinary as Naples. Our recommended travel itinerary approaches this marvelous city from three different angles, starting with Naples’ scenic side, as beautiful today as it was ages ago, when 16th Century travelers on the Grand Tour arrived seeking beauty and gradeur. Next up is the rich, majestic Naples, capital of the Kingdom of Two Sicilies, known for its monuments and squares, its culture and truly popular side streets. Finally, we’ll introduce you to a hidden Naples, which has existed underground for centuries. This may be the most mysterious and spectacular side of Naples, spanning two millennia and conti- nuing to look to the future: from catacombs to under- ground art, with the most beautiful train stations in Europe designed by 14 “archi-stars” and adorned with 200 works of art by over ninety artists.

I had heard about this structure called The Vessel that was about to be inaugurated in the Hudson Yards - I had also seen a rendering - but its was only when I saw pictures of it emerging on social media that I said: “Wow! I really need to go to see it.” Yes, I fell in the trap too. The Vessel, British design and Italian manufacture, is a shining dream for our selfie-obsessed society: 2500 steps amazingly organized in a dantesque structure with a wonderful view on the Hudson river. It is a $200 million stairway to nowhere in a $25 billion neighborhood.
