Pompeii 360 Virtual Walking Tour

Happy Tuesday! You never visited Pompeii and you would like to? We can help with a 360 Virtual Walking Tour of the famous ruins! 🛫🇮🇹

The archaeological site is located in Southern Italy in the Campania region. Pompeii, once a rich Roman city, was destroyed by the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 A.D. Although nobody really knows the exact date of the eruption, Pliny the Younger, a Roman writer who apparently witnessed the eruption, noted August 24th as the fateful date.

Pompeii provides a complete example of what Roman life, architecture, and history, and as such it was inscribed in the Unesco World Heritage Sites in 1997. The bodies you can observe at the ruins were ultimately pulverized by the heat and the lava. In 1863, Italian architect Giuseppe Fiorelli realized that they left gaps in the ashes before actually disintegrating, and he had the idea to inject plaster in these gaps, hence recreating casts of the real bodies buried in Pompeii.

Although everyone assumes that Pompeii was a Roman city, it was actually founded by Oscans in the 6th or 7th century B.C., and in fact, after excavation, many Greek culture objects have been found as well. The city remained covered by ashes for 1,500 years after the eruption and was discovered accidentally when Italian architect Domenico Fontana was digging for a water tunnel in the area.

We hope you enjoyed this little virtual trip. Like, Love, Share!!! And as always… thank you!!! 🙏

ROMA - Galleria Nazionale di Arte Antica in Palazzo Barberini

Today we would like to take you inside the Palazzo Barberini/Galleria Nazionale d'Arte Antica, an art gallery located inside Palazzo Barberini, an elegant palace in Rome originally designed for Pope Urban VIII.

Maffeo Barberini, the real name of Pope Urban VIII, ordered the construction of this estate in 1623. The Italian architect, Carlo Maderno, the same that designed the façade of the Basilica of St. Peter, started construction in 1625 and Bernini continued after his death completing it in 1633.

To house the Galleria Nazionale d’Arte Antica, made of pieces of art donated by several noble families, the Italian government purchased the palazzo. The Galleria holds over 1,400 paintings and sculptures from renowned artists from the 13th to the 18th centuries like Tiziano, El Greco, Caravaggio, Tintoretto and Raffaello’s famous portrait “La fornarina”.

We hope you enjoy your virtual visit to the gallery! And… as always if you think of someone that may enjoy this as well, please share it with them. Thank you for being with us and spreading our love for #ItalianArt. 🙏

Catania, Sicily Walking Tour - With Captions!

This week #SundaysInItaly goes to the beautiful island of Sicily in the charming city of Catania! 🛫🇮🇹
Located in Eastern Sicily - where the volcano Mount Etna also is - Catania faces the beautiful Ionian Sea Coast. The city was founded in 729BC by Chalcidians from the Greek island of Euboea. In the 5th century BC, the city was conquered by Hieron and renamed Aetna after the name of the volcano. And, ultimately, Catania was the first Sicilian city to fall to the Roman Empire in 263 BC, and subsequentially after the Barbaric invasions, it fell to the Byzantine, the Arabs and the Normans.

Too many are the places you should visit, so here is a link where you can learn some insightful information about them: http://bit.ly/3idKM8a

But while you are there … make sure to have breakfast with the famous “granita e brioche col tuppo”, a delicious almond or pistachio slushy to accompany a warm brioche with a bump resembling a hair bun, which in Italian is “tuppo”!

PASTA ZOZZONA - Original Italian Recipe

Yesterday we promised you a great recipe and here we are with our #SaturdaysAtHome segment dedicated to #ItalianFood! 🇮🇹
Do not try this at home if you are on a diet… but if you are ready to taste something delicious, go for it! 🧑‍🍳👩‍🍳

Pasta “zozzona”, which literally translates to "filthy" or "dirty" person, combines three of the main dishes of the Roman traditional cuisine: “carbonara”, “amatriciana” and “cacio e pepe”.
So why is it called “zozzona”? Because in culinary terms, in Roman dialect, this word means fattening, succulent and above all... super caloric.

Let’s engage the help of Blog Giallo Zafferano to prepare this rich, heavy mix of different flavors once born from utilizing scraps in someone’s fridge! This super seasoned dish that is simply exquisite needs to be eaten and enjoyed without regrets!

Remember “Pancia piena cerca riposo” (a full belly seeks rest)! So enjoy it, don’t overthink it, and your diet can always start tomorrow!
Tell the same to your friends and family by sharing this post! Thanks and “buon appetito”! 🙏

𝗦𝘆𝗻𝗼𝗽𝘀𝗶𝘀: Salvatore (Salvatore Cascio), a boy who grew up in a Sicilian village, returns home after becoming a famous film director and receiving the news that his old friend, Afredo (Philippe Noiret), died. Salvatore reminisces the moments he lived with Alfredo, who was the projectionist at Cinema Paradiso, that ultimately shaped his love for movies and his career as a filmmaker.

𝗔𝗯𝗼𝘂𝘁 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗗𝗶𝗿𝗲𝗰𝘁𝗼𝗿: Giuseppe Tornatore is an Italian film director and screenwriter. He was born in Bagheria, a little town close to Palermo. His initial interest was in theatre, where he started acting at the age of 16. Eventually he became a freelance photographer and finally switched to cinema where he debuted with “Le minoranze etniche in Sicilia”, a documentary, and then with the RAI movie “Il Camorrista” in 1985. Although he has an extensive filmography, Cinema Paradiso is his biggest accomplishment.

Why should you listen to Vivaldi's "Four Seasons"?

Welcome back!!! Today, please watch this short, but very interesting video on why everyone should delight their ears with “Le Quattro Stagioni” (The Four Seasons), the masterpiece by Antonio Vivaldi! 🎼🎻🇮🇹

A true genius and one of the most creative composers ever existed, #Vivaldi is the one that brought Italian Baroque music to its apex! In the Four Seasons, while perfectly suggesting a concert with multiple instruments and an ensemble, Vivaldi only used his famous violin as the sole instrument.

By incorporating sounds reminiscent of nature in the different seasons and writing sonnets to go with the music, Vivaldi was way ahead of his time!
And while he may have been misunderstood or way too advanced for his audience at that time, he will be forever remembered and honored by his wonderful music, which is one of the most appreciated masterpieces of classical music ever written!

And to quote Vivaldi himself “Se questa non piace, non voglio più scrivere musica.” (If you don’t like this, I will stop writing music). And if you'd like to listen to the entire piece, we suggest this performance by the Filarmonica della Scala directed by Riccardo Muti: https://bit.ly/3i8bmzN

Well, our dear Vivaldi…. We like it and we are happy you kept writing music for us!
Watch, listen, like, love, and please share! Thank you for being with us every day! 🙏

Italy begins year of Dante anniversary events with virtual Uffizi exhibition

As anticipated, 2021 marks the 700th Anniversary of the death of Dante Alighieri! In honor of this anniversary, the Gallerie degli Uffizi in Florence will display eighty-eight of the drawings of the Divine Comedy by Federico Zuccari, a 16th century Renaissance artist. 🇮🇹

Dante Alighieri, the father of the Italian language, was born in Florence in 1265 and died in Ravenna, where he is also buried, in 1321. He is best known for the “La Divina Commedia” (Divine Comedy), which is divided in three parts, “Inferno” (Hell), “Purgatorio” (Purgatory) and “Paradiso” (Paradise).
The sketches by Zuccari date back to 1586-1588 and they were owned by the noble family of the Orsini and then by the Medici family before they became part of the Uffizi collection in 1738. 88 to be exact: 28 depicting hell, 49 depicting the purgatory and 11 depicting paradise. Before this revolutionary virtual exhibition, they were only visible to scholars and they were only publicly displayed for Dante’s 600th birth anniversary in 1865, and later for an exhibit in Abruzzo in 1993.

Our celebrations for the Master Poet will start soon, so stay tuned for more information on upcoming events. If you liked this post, and you know someone that would appreciate it as well, please share it with them. Thank you! 🙏

Did Michelangelo Carve a Graffiti Portrait Into This Florentine Facade?

Welcome back to all our followers! ✨🇮🇹
Today we cover some interesting news discovered by Adriano Marinazzo, curator of digital initiatives at the Muscarelle Museum of Art at William & Mary.

What used to be considered a common piece of street art carved on the façade of Palazzo Vecchio, Piazza della Signoria, Firenze is now being attributed to the work of Michelangelo! Marinazzo recently published a paper, which highlights the evidence supporting his hypothesis.

The carving resembles Michelangelo’s portrait known as “L’importuno”, which is housed in the Louvre. The drawing, in fact, has the enigmatic note scribbled to the side saying, “who would ever say it is by my hand?” possibly pointing to the fact that no one would imagine that he was the sculptor of the carved stone on Palazzo Vecchio.

➡️ Read this interesting article on the Smithsonian Magazine and additional information regarding Marinazzo’s paper at: http://bit.ly/2MOQn9n

And we can conclude with Michelangelo’s own quote “Every block of stone has a statue inside it and it is the task of the sculptor to discover it”. In this case the block of stone was a clue for someone else to discover its sculptor… 😏

Portofino Walking Tour 2020 4K

Ready for a #SundaysInItaly? 🛫🇮🇹
Well, you are in the right place, and today, we will transport you to the Italian Riviera in a very picturesque town known for its harbor and the beach, welcome to Portofino!!!

A small fisherman village, Portofino looks especially exquisite at sunset with its colorful buildings, which perfectly reflect the rays of the sun and add to its natural beauty. Despite being very small, its charm attracts numerous artists, Hollywood stars and millionaires. 🎞

In the 15th century Genoa, Portofino was controlled by Charles VI, King of France. But in 1409, the monarch sold it to the Republic of Florence, and it was only after the French left Genoa that the Florentines returned it its rightful owner.
Portofino is so unforgettable that it inspired many large companies. Disney, for example, created replicas in Tokyo and Orlando to give people a little taste of this magical place. And… Ferrari was also inspired and released a V8 model named after Portofino.

One of the things to visit is certainly the Christ of the Abyss, a bronze statue of Christ, which was sunk in the ocean to protect divers and fishermen in 1954. Tourists should also visit the Church of St. Martin, which was built in the 12th century, and the Church of St. George. And… last but not least visit Castello Brown, which is a house museum built in the 16th century. It belonged to the English consul Montague Yeats Brown, hence its name, and today, it is also used as a venue for weddings and events. The castle is surrounded by a Mediterranean garden full of flowers, roses and pergolas and, being located on top of the harbor, it offers stunning panoramic views.

Pear, walnut and blue cheese risotto - recipe

Welcome back #ItalianFood lovers!!! This week, to make up for last week, a super-fast and easy recipe for you, but with a delicate and delicious taste. 😁

Let’s look at the video by Blog Giallo Zafferano Bto learn how to make “risotto con pere, gorgonzola e noci”, risotto with pears, blue cheese and walnuts!

In Italian cuisine it is very easy to associate rice with risotto, but although rice has been around for many centuries, it was mainly just sold in apothecaries as a medicinal and exotic plant to use in infusions until the 1400s. Risotto, characterized by the fact that the rice is first toasted and then cooked slowly in broth - to create its creamy texture – is a dish that only really started in the last century, and it is still evolving.
The particular taste of this recipe is created by the sweet of the pears and the salty and rich taste of “gorgonzola”. But what is the origin of this cheese? The name comes from the town in the Lombardy region where it was born. Historically, this cheese traces back to the 15th century when a herdsman that arrived in Gorgonzola had left curdled milk in a container. Later on, not having the tools handy to process the milk, he added more curd to the mixture and after several days he noticed that the cheese had developed some green/blue veins that gave it an extremely bold taste. Gorgonzola is now recognized as the second DOP cheese in the world and it is the 5th most exported Italian cheese in the world.

Well enjoy this quick and delicious risotto and don’t forget to share this post with others that may want to try it as well. Like, love, and share!! 👩‍🍳👨‍🍳🇮🇹
