La Befana in the Italian Language

L’Epifania Epiphany Days after many Americans have taken down their Christmas trees and packed away the decorations, Italians continue to celebrate.  Their final feast is  L’Epifania, on January 6,  which commemorates the arrival of i re magi, the three kings who followed the bright Christmas star (stella cometa) to bring gifts for bambino Gesù (baby Jesus). Italian children traditionally received their presents on Epiphany  rather than Christmas.  However, as Babbo Natale (Father Christmas) h...

Matera, Basilicata: 2019 European Capital of Culture

Italy is full of cities that seem to only exist in the imagination. Matera, a dusty, alien landscape of a city in the southern region of Basilicata, also fits that description. For this reason and so much more, Matera is a European Capital of Culture for 2019. Describing Matera simply as a city carved out of rock is only half the story. The former “shame of Italy” has transformed itself from a backwater where, as late as the mid-20th century, residents lived in caves without plumbing and...

My first visit...

I'm definitely not a hunter... I hesitated a lot before visiting, for the first time, the "Musée de la Chasse et de la Nature" (Museum of Hunting and Nature), which you can find in the Marais area. It was a nice surprise! The museum is housed in two 17th century buildings, "hôtels particuliers" - one of them designed by François Mansart, the architect of a number of famous castles, churches and other buildings - and was created in 1964, on a private initiative. It's now operated by a foun...

Tips for visiting Versailles

Versailles is an immense art piece. Everything currently on the 2,000-acre estate was thought out, designed, and built meticulously over 100 years (1683-1785) to become the outstanding place it is today. And although every single nook and cranny of the estate, from the furniture in the palace to the groves and paths in the gardens, is worth seeing, you probably only have a limited amount of time in your hands. That’s why we’ve asked French art historian and architecture expert Dorian Dallonge...
