#Italiadestate: the flavors of the vineyard, my vacation with Magna Gina

.

Bimba dei Anni 50, I used to spend a holiday in Loranzè, in Canavese, my cousin Gina’s guest, for all Magna Gina. We reached Ivrea with the Aosta, a small train with old wooden carriages and completed the journey with a short stroke.

Magna Gina, a widow and a young son, filled me with attentions and delicacies and involved me in her very active life. She woke up early and went to the washroom powered by a canterie brook that was doing my company at night and with her rinsing my clothes climbing over a rock to be at the water level at 8 am I was already wet. Magna Gina then wore me dry clothes and then with gerla and baskets of supplies she left for the vineyard. At the end of the trail, when I was climbing, I was already tired, and poor Gina, silver hair and golden heart, made me into the gerla and carried me to the top of the hill.

The path was a climb to the Earth’s Paradise: around me there were trees full of fruits of all kinds and I just had to stretch out a hand to pick up the mulberry and bamboo leaves, apricots, plums, small pears, white peaches, Figs, avoiding the bees that were buzzing in the heat. The vineyard was covered by terraces with water-gathering tanks that housed frogs and toads, while green and blue dragonflies squirming among the bushes of the thousand flowers spinning in everywhere.

At the top of the hill a large gate supported by pillars, bearing the inscription “Villa Marra” and next to “Parva domus magna quies”. The entrance was preceded by a staircase opening on a plateau on which the mansion was standing. It was a simple construction, without electricity and no convenience but for me it was a treasure trove: on the ground floor there were the kitchen and dining room while the bedrooms were on the upper floor.

The furnishings were old, if not antique, and for this it was doubly fascinating to start from the oil lamps to the yellow collections of “The Sunday of the courier” that I was browsing kidnapped. Around the house there was a court with the top of white rosellines under which the table for lunches and snacks was fitted, the water pump, the fish of the red fish that I ingested with the wastes of the hosts that the old Parish priest gave me.

The ladies who were sewing or chatting sat on a rooftop terrace, a balcony on the Canavesan plain as the men spent their afternoons playing bowls in the playground at the bottom of which there was a stone cave with seats and The coffee table with bread and salami and fresh vinegar.
On the side of the courtyard there was the chicken coop with hens of various breeds, and my favorite were the “Americans” who lay small eggs and on which a gallant king was reigning. On the back was the hazel, where there were squirrels and ghosts: my cousin Giuseppe was afraid that they were afraid of my talk and that I would only have been able to see them. It has happened very rarely.

All this kingdom was governed with a firm hand by Magna Gina: it was laborious like a bee and every creature of the vineyard, every flower, to each person she was giving her cure and affection that still warm the heart of those who lived with her today.

TALENT, COMMITMENT AND DEDICATION: THE PODIUM OF SUCCESS BY SECOND VANESSA FERRARI

Getting to be the first Italian woman to win a gold medal at the World Arts Championships at the age of 16 is an incredible goal. But the true titanic enterprise can succeed in reconfiguring over time. And continue to win, no matter who the new opponents, no matter what the difficulties are. Vanessa Ferrari knows this very well. She, class 1990, who grew up in the province of Cremona and became a small big star of tricolor sport, made Make it possible a true philosophy of life. Or rather, a magic formula, to keep repeating every day in front of the mirror and beam, challenge after challenge, workout after training, medal after medal. The result, for her, is a spell of grace and power that for years has left the whole world open.

WHAT IT MEANS FOR YOU “MAKE IT POSSIBLE”?
In my case it means first of all so much workout and so many sacrifices. And so much commitment and a lot of constancy, because the results never come by chance. Artistic gymnastics are a sport that starts very young, and professional athletes usually stop very soon. This means that to get to the highest levels you have to make a lot of kidnapping: spend whole days at the gym, have little time for yourself, go on vacation just a few days or sometimes do not get off at all, except for the commemorated parties. All in the face of a result that is never guaranteed to be one hundred percent. But that is the case: if you want to have the hope of getting there, you have to believe it all the way, and behave accordingly.

 

WHAT WAS YOUR APPROACH TO ARTISTIC GYMNASTICS?
I started at 7 years, which is already too late for this discipline. From a tiny time I saw a gymnast at the beam, and I asked my mom to do the same sport. But in my country, Soncino, in the province of Cremona, there was no artistic gymnastics team, so he enrolled me in dance. After a while she realized that she did not do it for me: so when I was about seven years old she started taking me to Brescia for my first training sessions. My mother is of Bulgarian origin, and has always had a great passion for sport. A passion that has been absolutely able to convey.

 

WHO WOULD YOU KNOW THAT THIS SPORT FOR YOU WAS EVERYTHING MORE THAN ONE PASSAGE?
From a small one it seemed like a game, of course. I enjoyed it like a madman doing bugs here and there, and that was enough for me. Then, growing up, I was called for the Juniors National I was 12 or 13 years old, and at that time I began to understand that I had the chance to become a professional athlete.

WHAT WERE THE LARGEST SATISFACTIONS OF YOUR CAREER?
Without a doubt the gold medal at the 2006 World Championship in Denmark was one of the finest joys. It was the first gold in history for an Italian athlete, and I was very excited, although I was still too small to fully understand the meaning of what I was experiencing. For the rest, personally, it was a great pleasure to see how I was able to face the disappointment of the London Olympics. It was a very hard time for me, but the following year, in 2013, I was able to win silver at the Antwerp World Cup. And then in 2014 gold to the Europeans of Sofia. Here, these were two beautiful moments: when you are little you all have little expectation towards you, and when you win is a triumph; But then growing, year after year, the pressure increases, not to mention that you start competing with athletes much younger and more carefree than you. Continuing to reconfirm is undoubtedly the most difficult thing to do. And so when you can, it’s a bit odd feeling.

Holidays in Sicily with a glass of wine in hand

Five wineries and their wines to taste this summer, traveling long and wide on the island

Between past and future
From the unique territory of Etna and the craftsmanship of generations who work on the slopes of the volcano, a “new” wine is born. Or rather, a new excellent expression of Nerello Mascalese, High Mora Feud of Mid-Cusumano. First vintage 2014. Why between past and future? Well, meanwhile it is a product that is born in a precise landscaping and historic farming context, with still old dry-walled screws. Half feudo is actually a cru obtained from a vineyard of 80 years averaging 2 hectares of cultivated saplings. The future is in the bottle, in its content, resulting from a contemporary philosophy and innovative technology, which allows you to obtain a high quality product. But perhaps more than philosophy, in the case of Cusumano, it would be more correct to talk about poetics. Poetics of wine and poetics of making wine today. The company explains it well in a nice video, spread just for the launch of the wines of the Alta Mora line.

With the malolactic in wood, the Nerello finishes in big barrels and this first edition, the wine is still young, already imposes itself as an important and authoritative bottle. Its intense and complex scents, but fresh and delicious in the mouth, so that it can be perfectly matched with seafood pasta dishes.

 

Black and white
Fresh black wines are also born from the dark black ground of Etna. Like those produced by another important company in the area, Cottanera. We are talking about two precious bottles: Etna Bianco Doc 2016 and Calderara 2015. Two different interpretations of the Carricante, the extraordinary autochthonous vine spread on the Sicilian volcano, the soul of many of the best Sicilian whites. His first interpretation is the Etna Bianco, which affords the yeast in steel for at least 6 months. More than a base wine, horrible expression, is a bottle that portrays the Carrier with an essential palette, with almost the only basic colors, citrus and mineral notes of this wine. And the body decided in the mouth.
While the Carrier of Contrada Calderara tells another story. It comes from vineyards of 45 years old up to 750 mt above sea level. Fermented and aged 12 months part in wood part in concrete tanks. In short, nature is part of it, but also the cellar wants its. So here we do not find only the citrus freshness, but also the greater flavor. And still the floral and herbaceous notes on the nose. Both wines combine perfectly with raw fish dishes.

 

Looking for the perfect bottle
Perhaps Stefano Caruso and his brothers are convinced they have found it. In the sense that they have come back to produce the wine that best expresses the philosophy of their wine-making work, the philosophy behind the whole production of the Marsala Caruso & Minini company. A philosophy, born of the competence and passion of Nino Caruso, then of his heirs. And precisely the name Nino brings the prince’s bottle of the cellar, the superb Rosso Sicilia Igt. (15% alcohol), which we had the opportunity to enjoy at the ancient Baglio di Marsala of the family of producers (see the opening photo above). Nino is born from two distinct stages of vintage with a strict selection of grapes (Nerello, Nero d’Avola, Frappato and Perricone). The second harvest occurs after a natural baking of the bunches. The wine then affinates four years in French and American wooden tonneaux, but made in Sicily, and another 12 months in bottle. Another particularly representative wine of Caruso & Minini is certainly the Perricone, also known as Pignatello. Sachia is the name of our bottle with this purest grain. A fresh and powerful wine, fragrant nose and elegant on the palate. 6 months in steel tanks and 3-4 months in bottle. Work on this autochthonous Sicilian grape is another challenge won by the Marsala winery. Finally, we point out three more bottles to try: the Catarratto Isula, the Black Avola Reserve Cutaja and the sumptuous Syrah Riserva Delia Nivolelli.

 

Nobles
Speaking of Sicily one can not but mention a Cricket. A Cricket, for example, like the Kados of Duke of Salaparuta from the estate of Risignolo. It is a bottle that well represents this variety, with its floral bouquet. For about 40 days, half of the grapes ferment in barriques, while refining takes place in vitrified cement tanks. The fruit of the work in the vineyard and in the cellar is therefore a wine of remarkable complexity and structure and a combination of great pleasure in the mouth. More demanding and important is certainly Bianca di Valguarnera, Insolia in purity.

Vanessa Hudgens and the unexpected accessory to beat the heat

The singer has given with its complement “wild” for hair, that with which to guard against the sun (among other things)

 

We all have ours. A fedora hat, a cap with a visor, a raffia pamela, … When temperatures rise, they multiply – like loaves and fish – capillary accessories that fulfill a triple function: to attenuate the thermal sensation of heat, to protect our face from Sun rays and give us a more “dignified” air when we decide to embrace the summer and its philosophy: washed face, natural hair behind the beach and / or pool, excesses, etc.

The good weather opens the ban on many novelties in terms of style; There are, for example, botanical illustrations, short monkeys or fluorine colors. But Bella Hadid, Kendall Jenner and Hailey Baldwin have shown us with their summer stylings that, among them, the obsession with hair complements and motives (already mentioned) prevail.

 

Vanessa Hudgens entrusts to the beret this triple function of refreshing, sheltering and beautifying the woman. Although the choice may be somewhat unexpected, the beret expands its life-span with the purpose of serving as effectively as autumn-winter looks like spring-summer looks; An exercise of reinvention proper to the fashion industry.

The ex girl Disney has found in a black model, abullonado and with a detail braided on the visor the cocktail of ingredients necessary to beat the heat and to dress up all its outfits, be it a fluid dress of sailor stripes with clogs or a cropped top And plastic flip-flops

The rules for a perfect gin tonic

We talked to the Cocktail Manager at the Gin Festival to let us know the secrets to preparing a gin tonic.

From bitter medicine to becoming one of the most popular drinkers in the world, gin and tonic has made its way. The story of this drink originated in British colonies and more precisely in the Indian subcontinent. Here in the second half of 1800 one of the greatest health threats was malaria, a disease that was fought with tonic water – that is, a quinine-prepared drink, an antimalarial extract from the bark of the china tree. But the sensible British palate did not like his excessively bitter taste. So settlers began to add to their tonic water one of their favorite distillates: gin.

 

Over the centuries, gin and tonic has reached virtually all corners of the world and has evolved and has changed shape. A change occurred on the one hand thanks to the courage of large and small (sometimes micro) distilleries, which without forgetting the juniper have experienced the use of new botanicals. From the standpoint of the mixologists who wanted to go beyond the borders of the always great, but not necessarily exciting, lemon slice.

The latest news comes from Spain. Here in recent years they have taken the most classic of British drinks and have revolutionized it both in the approach and in the flavor. Ordinary glass is the balloon piece, that is, a cup similar to wine. But the novelty is what is served in, that is, gin tonic where experimentation makes it a master with the addition of fruits, spices, bitters and even jams. The purpose is simple: create a refreshing drink and exalt the characteristics of each gin.

A school of thought that has crossed the boundaries of the Iberian peninsula and has even conquered Great Britain. Just think that GinFestival.com, an itinerant festival that is among the biggest gin-devoted British events, has embraced this philosophy. “The large cup of glass allows you to add a large amount of ice, while the tall stem helps keep the heat away from the drink, ensuring that you stay cooler longer,” explains GQ Peter Barrett, Cocktail Manager and Events Assistant at the Gin Festival. “Additionally,” he adds, “when the seal is added it allows for a visually appealing drink.”

To choose the right seal, he explains, one has to start from the main genome of gin and the set of botanicals used to create it. Most brands recommend the best way to serve their product and indicate what is best to put into their gin. But often the best thing is to play with the aromas and choose your own garnish. “First he tastes gin and tonic and tries to identify the words that best describe their character,” continues Barrett. “Is it lively and with the distinctive notes of lemon, delicate and floral, or has hectic and dry notes? Once you understand this you can use garnishes to enhance an aroma or add a contrast note to gin. ”

For gin citric try with coriander, basil or thyme. For those more floral lavender or cucumber. If grassy notes stand out, use rosemary or apple, while they dominate the spices spilled on orange, cloves or pepper. Finally if the gin is particularly dry it opts for pink grapefruit or lime.

From the theory to practice, the good news is that preparing a perfect gin tonic is simple. And the few ingredients it needs make it easy to serve both home and out (a few things try to sip a gin tonic during a boat trip).

The rules to follow according to Peter Barrett are not so many, but sacred. First, use a glass with a stem. Then do not skimp on the ice and put it a lot. Then add one or two shots of your favorite gin and gasket. Finally, complete with ⅔ or ¾ of a toner bottle of the best quality.

“Today there are so many versatile and interesting ginos with an infinite variety of aromas and styles, which means that there is really a real gin out there for anyone,” says Barrett.

“There are also many high quality toner brands available to accompany these gin, which means there is still plenty to explore and you can discover ever-changing new flavor combinations. The choice you have today with G & T, “concludes,” is infinite. “

If a haute couture designer interprets Italian tradition …

If a haute couture designer interprets Italian tradition …

As a creative director for Rochas and Schiaparelli, Marco Zanini has put his own personal stamp on both the world of ready-to-wear and the haute couture.

Since he left Shiaparelli in November 2014, it has become quiet around him – but that is right for him.

He deliberately concentrates on quieter projects that do not require a large stage, which radiate modernity for him.

One of them is a collection designed for the Italian traditional house Santoni.

The special feature: while Santoni is specialized in leather goods, in particular shoes, he also designed ready-to-wear for the label.

The Italian designer told us in an interview what exactly this is all about and why the whole thing is “A Colleciton edited by Marco Zanini”

Her collection for Santoni is called a “micro collection” and it was important to you that it is not communicated as “Capsule Collection”,

but as a “Collection edited by Marco Zanini”. Why the whole thing? Are not these words just anyway?

I find that words and certain terms are extremely important in fashion. Fashion is itself a language with which we all express ourselves.

In what words do you describe your collection?

I would title the whole thing as a project. It is not a collection that is dependent on seasons in the sense of a larger ready-to-wear strategy from Santoni.

For me, the collection has its right to exist, because it stands so without any comparison, and because it is such a small selection of perfect basics.

What is typical of these typical Santoni and what is typical of you?

Actually, there are quite a lot of overlaps – many do not know interestingly that I have a real passion for classics.

This timelessness was what I wanted to bring into every part of this collection. And, of course, there was a focus on the highest quality

of materials and cuts, a certain excellence and a fine sense for colors and their tones.

What is the purpose of your collection?

For me, all this has certainly something radical: it is supposed to be a subtle perception of luxury that only experts can recognize.

This is also based on a preference for anonymity. Only the initiates know how to appreciate this luxury and therefore deliberately choose it.

Is this also what you see the Appeal of Santoni?

Naturally. And there is also something very important that only really fine brands can offer: “Made in Italy”. A timeless quality predicate for itself.

In the other two bedrooms, you’ll find a double bed and two twin beds.

From the home’s exclusive hillside setting, it’s only a short drive to sandy, sheltered Camp de Mar Beach and Camp de Mar Golf Course.

Just down the hill, Port d’Andratx is a formerly sleepy fishing village that’s found new life as a glamorous resort town,

where you can book a honeymoon-worthy dinner at a waterfront restaurant, join in the celebrations of local festivals or simply stroll along the charming harbor,

admiring the yachts docked there.

The zero-star hotel without walls in Switzerland

Among the mountains stands, so to speak, a luxury hotel with room service included

Remember the song titled The house in via dei matti n.0? Well, there’s something like that in Switzerland. Only this is a hotel, a zero-star tree (Null Stren Hotel), although in the good night of stars, the real ones are seen too much. The only available bedroom is in fact without walls and without ceiling and is located at about 2 thousand meters altitude between the Alpes svissere. To cover only a soft down jacket, but no room service. The room rate, including breakfast and welcome drink, and 295 Swiss francs. The bathroom? Well, it is located in a hut just a few minutes walk from the bedroom.

 

The “Zero Star” hotel is actually a conceptual work of two brothers Frank and Patrik Riklin and their partner Daniel Charbonnie. A way to reflect on the theme of hospitality, nature and the concept of luxury.

Roka – Dive into Japanese Spring

A full staff and the contemporary, Asian-influenced interiors of this vacation rental will ease you into the laid-back Phuket lifestyle in no time.

Your holiday at Villa begins with an airport transfer and includes the services of a chef, housekeeper, security staff and property manager, making it the perfect

destination for a relaxed family getaway or honeymoon away from it all.

Spend your time taking in the views—and soaking in the tropical sun—from the expansive outdoor living area,

which includes rows of loungers by an infinity pool, shaded sitting and dining areas, and a barbecue.

Inside, the property features spa and exercise rooms, a bar and lounge, a sound system, and even a library.

Simple elegance defines the look and feel of the villa’s interiors.

Neutral-toned sofas and sectionals, cool charcoal-hued tile floors and walls of windows keep the multiple living rooms

refined yet airy, while built-in cabinets add an understated, thoughtful touch to a dining room that seats sixteen.

Flat-fronted white cabinets and contrasting black countertops in the fully equipped kitchen are a study in minimalist chic.

The seven bedrooms at Villa are split between the guest pavilion and the arrival pavilion; all have en-suite bathrooms, balconies and ocean views.

There are six bedrooms in the guest pavilion: four with king beds, lounge areas and al-fresco showers, and two with two twin beds each.

The arrival pavilion has one bedroom with a king bed, its own living area and an outdoor shower.

In spite of the villa’s hidden-away location on a quiet cove, it’s only a 10-minute drive from Kamala Beach, known for its beautiful sand and trendy beach clubs.

The property is also close to Patong Beach,

Surin Beach, FantaSea and even Laguna Golf Phuket. Make the short drive into central Phuket and board an excursion from the Royal Phuket

Marina or sample local specialties from the night market.

Dressing for office in summer and not die trying

In winter, when blazers and classic cut men’s shirts can join; When everything can be covered under a pair of tweezers and jackets,

dressing for the office being carried away by the formal vocation is (at least in general) much simpler than in summer.

The summer implies a progressive loss of layers that finish looks and even take it to another plane, making the

morning confrontation with the closet a feat worthy of epic.

At least, until you save these images of inspiration and recreate these tips.
The miniskirt is a garment so associated in summer as by many feared in the labor field; Logical, if you take into account that it connects

Spring Sound: the surprise edition ends!

With Grace Jones (Stainless), Riz Amhed Swet Shop Boys, powerful and political, and Haim, for all but classy (which in these days is not a bad thing)

So the Spring Sound is over.
There is still another day of parties and concerts around the city, but at the no-place par excellence that is the Parc of Forùm we will be back in a year,

with the excitement, the curiosity and the unbelief of ever.

Of this spring, we will surely remember the surprises: Backstage Palaces Backstage Concerts and DJs, 360 degree Arcade Fire show,

Mogwai’s touch and escape, and yesterday’s incredible pop festival of Haim sisters.

We will remember why, if they were still needed, confirm and reinforce the idea that Spring Sound is first of all an experiential festival.
A festival that has long been responsible for rules that are just his – just see what happens every time the bill is announced – and that moves according to

established logic over time.

Spring can be allowed to have as headliner bands that would not be headliners anywhere else. Every year there is at least one of these.

And now Primavera can also afford to play and not to announce people who in every other festival would shred on the poster with the task of releasing tickets.

With the 2017 edition, somehow, it is overtaken by the classical festivals model and is heading towards a

future where the concept of surprise that has changed forever the record market could have a significant impact even in the way they are perceived And organize

such reviews.
We’ll see.

Meanwhile, we already know that we will remember the incredible and timeless show of Grace Jones yesterday.

He climbed to the stage for sixty-eight years, practically naked and covered with body painting, and put a perfect pop show between an

allusion to cocaine and the other. Glam in the pure state.

And we will remember the sing along collectively during the Teenage Fanclub concert with

their three guitars and the public waving flags of Scotland while the Madridists present at the Forum suddenly unveiled after the Cup victory.

And then King Krule you see it and you ask where it is that pulls out that voice and that it first goes upstairs with a dj,

but then you get to a band – with so much sax – and a concert that already It was nice to become a – ehm – surprise.

To the point that having only seen the end of the Arcade Fire does not cause any regrets. Just as it does not make you regretful, you have chosen

to follow the live of Angel Olsen, which goes so far, but going ahead becomes more psychedelic

and conquers all song after song. A good way to recover from the disappointment of the re-founding Royal Trux and their garage rock escape.
The sound and the aptitude are those of all times, it is a shame that Jennifer Herrema could not do it anymore and it seemed to

Loredana Berté in her most problematic period.

The palm of the most fun concert of the day if they bring home the Swet Shop Boys by Riz Amhed.
Perhaps the most successful live rappove of the festival for power, public empathy and impact. A show of great political value

– recover the words with which they closed the concert – and that with news coming from London, but also with Turin’s panic-panic,

represents the here-and-now more than anything else Past those stages these days.

Head rocking up and down even for Skeptic who made the many Englishmen who filled the Forum Parc.
And then the Haim, what to say: I am a force of nature.
And you do not need to appreciate a kind of pop to understand it.
They are modern and contemporary although they sound like a tribute to the Fleetwood Mac set up by fans of E.L.O.
For all, but classy and in these times, it’s not really anything.
Their was a fast show: the singles of the new album and the hits of the previous album. Just.
A real party, I repeat!
