Andrea Bocelli - Vivo per lei

Are you an #ItalianMusic lover? Who would not be if this means loving ๐—”๐—ป๐—ฑ๐—ฟ๐—ฒ๐—ฎ ๐—•๐—ผ๐—ฐ๐—ฒ๐—น๐—น๐—ถ? The Italian tenor is an international star whose music has been able to literally build a bridge between classical and pop music!! ๐ŸŽผ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡น

Visually impaired from birth, Bocelli became blind at the age of 12 after a soccer incident. He was interested in music at a very young age, and he learned how to play the piano, the flute and saxophone. His breakthrough came in 1992 when he recorded a demo tape of โ€œMiserereโ€ for Zucchero Fornaciari. Pavarotti listened to it and encouraged Zucchero to perform the song with the then unknown Andrea. In 1994, Bocelli won the Sanremo Festival in the newcomersโ€™ category, and after releasing โ€œCon te partirรฒโ€ and the album โ€œSognoโ€, which included the famous duet with Cรฉline Dion of โ€œThe Prayerโ€, the sky was the limit.

๐Ÿ‘‰Listen to him on Spotify at https://spoti.fi/32PS26O

The song โ€œVivo per Leiโ€, composed by Gatto Panceri and Valerio Zelli, is perfect to describe how Andrea Bocelli sees music and singing. We leave you with his quote โ€œSinging provides a true sense of lightheartedness. If I sing when I am alone, I feel wonderful. It's freedom.โ€
We love that, keep singing Andrea to delight us with your beautiful music!!!!!

For those that may be interestedโ€ฆ Andrea will be performing at the Capital One Arena in DC on December 12th, tickets are still available!!! Thank you for liking, loving, and sharing! ๐Ÿ™

By building and extending the roof to create a large plaza offering panoramic views of the valley, the timeless palace is seen as a bridge between medieval and modern architecture.

Mario Cucinella is the founder of Mario Cucinella Architects (MCA) and is renowned for his approach to environmental sustainability through innovative technology. His respect of the surroundings ensures the positive long-term effect his projects have from a natural, social, and economic point of view, and the timeless palace is just another testimony of such consideration.

How Italyโ€™s Biggest Mozzarella Balls Are Made | Regional Eats

Happy Monday and welcome back! Today, we explore another unique product, made in a specific city in the Campania region, and with a very specific name! Letโ€™s go check how a 30 kilos โ€œzizzonaโ€ is made in Battipaglia! ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡น

The โ€œzizzona di Battipagliaโ€ is nothing more than a large buffalo milk mozzarella, but with a very particular and noticeable addition on top, which recalls the shape of a large motherโ€™s breast full of milk. โ€œZizzonaโ€ is the dialect word in Campania for โ€œlarge breastโ€.

Although made of the same ingredients of mozzarella, the consistency is quite different because the outside has to be thicker and stronger to hold the weight, and the inside needs to have a web structure able to hold the milk, which is then released when it is cut.

Here is the Greek legend behind the โ€œzizzonaโ€ for those of you that are intriguedโ€ฆ

It is said that the nymph, reigning in the swamps of the Battipaglia plain, jealously guarded the secret of โ€œMozzata di Bufalaโ€ - the ancient name of Mozzarella di Bufala - a delicious food, which was reserved exclusively for the Gods. At dawn, every day, the nymph milked the buffaloes that grazed in the wild in the swamps, and prepared pieces of spherical shape of the precious "Mozzataโ€ and placed them in wicker baskets adorned with myrtle twigs and other aromatic herbs, before she would offer them to the Gods. One day, the nymph, whose name was Baptรฌ-Palรฌa, came across a young shepherd named Tusciano and struck by his beauty, she fell in love with him and revealed her secret to him. The young man, naively, revealed it to others and when the Gods learned that the mortals had learned the secret of the Mozzata di Bufala, they punished the nymph and her lover, condemning them to wander through the marshes, without ever being able to meet.

Isnโ€™t that romantic? But more importantly, although this story may just be a myth, arenโ€™t you glad that somehow, we get to enjoy this delicious fresh cheese? We are!!!

Lecce has a wealth of history as it was rules by several groups since its foundation over 2000 years ago.

Here is the legend behind its nameโ€ฆ
๐— ๐—ฎ๐—น๐—ฒ๐—ป๐—ป๐—ถ๐—ผ, the king of the Salento, founded the towns of ๐—Ÿ๐˜‚๐—ฝ๐—ถ๐—ฎ๐—ฒ โ€“ now Lecce - and Rudiae. He had a daughter, ๐—˜๐˜‚๐—ถ๐—ฝ๐—ฝ๐—ฎ, who married ๐—œ๐—ฑ๐—ผ๐—บ๐—ฒ๐—ป๐—ฒ๐—ผ, the king of Crete, after a storm forced him to land in Salento when on his return from the Trojan War. According to the legend, Lecce is named after ๐—Ÿ๐˜†๐—ฐ๐—ถ๐—ฎ, which was Idomeneoโ€™s native land.

Make sure to explore the Roman amphitheater in the cityโ€™s main square, Piazza Santโ€™Oronzo, where once 14,000 spectators seated, and now used for concerts, or to visit the Cathedral in Piazza del Duomo.

Unlike Piazza Santโ€™Oronzo, which is bustling with cafes and shops, Piazza del Duomo has a more intimate feel, and it is surrounded by ornate buildings. The Cathedral was originally built in 1144 and was rebuilt in the 17th century by architect Giuseppe Zimbalo.

Enjoy Lecce by wandering the narrow streets made of golden sandstone and finding hidden piazzas where you can enjoy a nice lunch with some delicious local rosรฉ wine. If ๐—ง๐—ต๐—ผ๐—บ๐—ฎ๐˜€ ๐—”๐˜€๐—ต๐—ฒ, the Irish novelist and writer, defined Lecce as โ€œ๐˜๐—ต๐—ฒ ๐—บ๐—ผ๐˜€๐˜ ๐—ฏ๐—ฒ๐—ฎ๐˜‚๐˜๐—ถ๐—ณ๐˜‚๐—น ๐—ฐ๐—ถ๐˜๐˜† ๐—ถ๐—ป ๐—œ๐˜๐—ฎ๐—น๐˜†", donโ€™t you think it is worth liking, loving, and sharing this post? ๐Ÿ˜ Grazie ๐Ÿ™โค

So why is โ€œPasta Genoa styleโ€ made by two true Neapolitan chefs? ๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿณ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡น๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿณ

Letโ€™s look at the history of this recipeโ€ฆ.

The โ€œGenoveseโ€ (Genoese) is a โ€œ๐—ฟ๐—ฎ๐—ดรน ๐—ฏ๐—ถ๐—ฎ๐—ป๐—ฐ๐—ผโ€ (white ragout) of meat, onions and a few more ingredients that is stewed for a very long time until it becomes a creamy and fragrant sauce served on โ€œ๐—ฐ๐—ฎ๐—ป๐—ฑ๐—ฒ๐—น๐—ฎโ€ (candle) pasta with a generous sprinkling of grated cheese, a mix of pecorino and parmigiano reggiano.๐Ÿคค

Believe it or not Genoese pasta is a Neapolitan recipe. According to some, it takes its name from the geographical origin of the cooks who, during the Aragonese era, in the fifteenth century, managed the inns around the harbor and came from Genoa.

Others, however, claim that the cook who invented this dish was a ๐˜๐—ฟ๐˜‚๐—ฒ ๐—ก๐—ฒ๐—ฎ๐—ฝ๐—ผ๐—น๐—ถ๐˜๐—ฎ๐—ป, whose nickname was โ€œ๐—ผ ๐—š๐—ฒ๐—ป๐—ฒ๐—ผ๐˜ƒ๐—ฒ๐˜€๐—ฒโ€ because he worked in a tavern located in โ€œ๐—ฉ๐—ถ๐—ฐ๐—ผ๐—น๐—ผ ๐—ฑ๐—ฒ๐—ถ ๐—š๐—ฒ๐—ป๐—ผ๐˜ƒ๐—ฒ๐˜€๐—ถโ€, which does not exist anymore. Depending on your preference you can pick the version you like the mostโ€ฆ

Ready? Letโ€™s cook this delicious dish while we learn not only some Italian but also words and inflections of the Neapolitan dialect! Can you tell the difference? Like, love, and share! Grazie to all the #ItalianFoodLovers!โค๐Ÿ™

New discovery near Pompeii unearths 'little known' part of ancient city's society

Today, we would like to take you back to Pompeii where new discoveries constantly take place bringing more insight and information on their daily life. ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡น

Two weeks ago, archaeologists discovered a hidden room in Civita Giuliana, a villa near Pompeii, which shed light on the life of slaves in Pompeii.

The villa of Civita Giuliana has been studied since 2017. With the latest series of excavations by the Archaeological Park of Pompeii, alongside with the Public Prosecutorโ€™s Office of Torre Annunziata, archaeologists found what is believed to be the humble room of the slaves who carried out the daily work in the Roman villa. In addition to being the dormitory for a group of slaves โ€“ maybe a small family, since a child-sized bed is present, the room was also used for storage, hence the eight amphorae that were found in the corners.

The Italian Cultural Society ended the Settimana della Lingua Italiana nel Mondo with a bang! As you can tell from the pictures, last Saturdayโ€™s Dante, Lโ€™Italiano event was filled with curiosity, enthusiasm, and fun! While the adults enjoyed an informative and inspiring lecture on Danteโ€™s works, the children were delighted to spend time learning about the poet through arts and crafts with maestra Fiorenza Castelli. Afterwards, the group took advantage of the perfect weather and indulged in a delicious merenda and aperitivo outside. Special thanks to Dr. Virginia Jewiss for presenting an intriguing interpretation of the poetโ€™s renown literature. Thank you to Women of Dartmouth for offering the event venue and to Istituto Italiano di Cultura Washington for collaborating to make this possible. We canโ€™t wait to see you at our next event! ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡นโœจ Photos by Angela Maggi
