ZeroLimescale

We are all crazy for Zerocalcare, or in English “Zerolimescale.” Why Limescale?  Calcare is our enemy par excellence: limescale happens to tiles, pipes, bathroom fixtures and showers.  We are talking about a sedimentary rock composed largely of a specific mineral, from which it takes its name, calcare.   His pen name, was inspired by an […]

Autumn Has Arrived

One of the things I love most about living in Italy is the existence of four distinct seasons.  During my past life in the USA, specifically in Washington, D.C., seasons were determined by the Gulf of Mexico, the Great Lakes winds, and the occasional hurricane making landfall. In Italy, Summer is long and hot. Winter […]

Located in the Province of Rimini, in (now) Emilia Romagna, it is a destination truly “Off the Beaten Path!” Undoubtedly an exciting destination. The […]

All My Plugs

This is a «  cri du cœur ! » Voilà ! The news is that Apple will not include a charging cube with the next iPhone to save on shipping. The shipping part is not my main concern with Apple. They were always minimalist on the packaging. Amazon is the actual offender on that. Enough! My […]

Finding Your Way in Venice

Venice is a set of islands but is still defined today as an “island” by the Venetians to distinguish it from the “mainland” town of Mestre. Venice also has a very unique topographic system. Therefore, as soon as you arrive in Venice, you look for some reference point that will allow you to find your […]

Romantic Torino

Torino deserves to be on that “bucket list” of things to see among the many beautiful Italian cities.  It is “Torino” for us and “Turin” in English, even if it is unnecessary to change that pronounceable name. I visited Torino a couple of weeks ago. I wanted to see the Egyptian Museum, which is second to […]

La Rotonda Opened its Four Doors

I visited Villa “La Rotonda,” Palladio‘s most charming Villa, many times over, but never inside. The estate is still privately owned, and the owner was a relatively private person. Therefore the visits were permitted only the outside and to walk around the four identical facades. Nevertheless, it was still a lovely sight and worth seeing. […]
