THE CONCEPT OF TIME IN ROME
“A Roma c’e sempre domani …”
there is always tomorrow for everything but life.
Which just happens here, between a coffee, a chat, a lunch and a passeggiata.
Unexpectedly, spontaneously, without too much planning and it might not be the most efficient way to live but it’s definitely a pretty damn good one.
My mother is the heart of our family.
Il cuore di tutto. She is a national treasure.
What a privilege it is being raised, and loved, by her.
An ode to all the mothers, in particulars our Italian mothers.
IN CONVERSATION: LA MERENDA
The ‘art of having merenda.’

IL CAFFE AL BAR
‘Il café al bar’ is a ritual;
a way of life,
the beauty of which, as with so many things in life,
is only properly appreciated when taken away.

I made a fatal mistake.
I forgot one of the most important unwritten rules in Italy:
Thou shalt talk loudly over the phone, or shalt not talk at all.
