Life in Plaster: New Discoveries from Pompeii

Photo credit: © Luigi Spina Of all the haunting images of Pompeii that have been uncovered in the three centuries since the archaeological site was rediscovered, it is the plaster casts of the many victims that drives the tragedy home to the heart. As we see bodies huddled in fear or sprawled on the floor as they sought safety, we realize that we’re literally gazing back in time to the final moments of life. For me, seeing Pompeii has always been a fascinating and somber experience. It hel...

Velia: Guide to the Greek and Roman Excavations

Yes, I know your objections to Naples. “But the crime!” you point out. Perhaps you mumble something about piles of garbage.

‘Urban Warfare’ as Europe’s Second Wave Spins Out of Control

ROME—A few hours after the regional governor of the Italian region of Campania where Naples is located announced he would be locking down the entire province to mitigate the spread of COVID-19, Neapolitans took to the streets Friday night to defy the order. The situation quickly turned into what one police official likened to urban warfare with protesters lighting dumpsters and ducking teargas being lobbed by police. All the while, the mostly maskless, yelling crowd undoubtedly spread coronaviru...

Italy sends in army after riot erupts on council estate near Naples over new virus outbreak

Italy sent soldiers and riot police as reinforcements on Friday to a council estate in the south of the country where a cluster of coronavirus cases among foreign farm workers has sparked tensions with locals. Violence flared between Italian residents and migrant workers on Thursday and Friday in the town of Mondragone, north of Naples, after five blocks of flats were locked down in an outbreak of 43 positive cases, mostly among Roma and Bulgarian field workers. The trouble reportedly began afte...

A Grim Milestone: Confirmed New COVID-19 Cases Hit New Record High In US

The number of confirmed new coronavirus cases per day in the U.S. hit an all-time high of 40,000 Friday — eclipsing the mark set during one of the deadliest stretches in late April — in a resurgence that has led some governors to backtrack or at least pause the reopening of their states. While the increase is believed to reflect, in part, greatly expanded testing, experts say there is ample evidence the virus is making a comeback, including rising deaths and hospitalizations in parts of the coun...

Aperitivo versus digestivo

Many drinkers are familiar with Italy’s beloved wine culture. Many people have also tried, ordered, or at least seen an Italian espresso or other coffee drink. What many in the United States overlook is the massive influence of spirits and liqueurs that make up Italy’s aperitivo and digestivo culture. Admittedly, it’s not always easy to define what constitutes an aperitivo drink and what constitutes a digestivo (also commonly known stateside by the French version of the words, aperitif and di...

Dream of Italy Capri Special Report

When you think of Italy, where do you dream of visiting? For so many travelers around the world, the Amalfi Coast and Capri are top of that list. It was exactly the same for me. Living here for more than a decade has only confirmed what I felt on that first visit. This place has a certain something that just makes you want to stay. Or, at the very least, come back as often as possible! Since traveling isn’t possible at the moment, it was a special experience to sit down at my desk and guest edit...

7 types of Italian pizza

Pizza is loved around the world. There are many American styles with fierce defenders, like New York style and New Haven’s apizza (no, that’s not a typo), which vary from the pies made at the cherished pizza shops of Paris, which are different from the pizza in Buenos Aires. But hands down, the most famous pizza in the world comes from Italy. Pizza, along with an overwhelming number of pastas, is often the first food people think of when they imagine Italian cuisine. Yet there’s no one Itali...

Sleeping Dog, Pompeii

A stray dog naps in the sun in Pompeii. I write this post on the first of May, a public holiday in Italy. Primo Maggio is also known as Festa del Lavoro, a day to celebrate workers. May Day. While the day is often used as a day for parades or demonstrations in honor of workers, it is also a day of recreation and relaxation, of outdoor concerts and long lunches. There is no May Day this year. Those who have been working hard during the coronavirus crisis — the essential workers, the doctors and ...

Pizzerias Reopen In Naples As Italy’s Coronavirus Restrictions Are Eased

NAPLES, Italy (AP) — Wood is burning again in Naples’ pizza ovens, giving a symbolic and savory boost to Neapolitans after two months of lockdown meant an end to their most iconic and favorite food. Pizzerias reopened Monday night in the birthplace of pizza, albeit under restrictions and for home delivery only. Whereas pizzerias in Rome and elsewhere were allowed to operate for take-out and delivery service, they were banned in Naples out of fears that such a congested, high-density city coul...

Thoughts from Amalfi during Coronavirus

Over the past 13 years, I’ve written a lot about the Amalfi Coast. About beautiful beaches, about my favorite hikes through quiet villages, about food, about the people, and really most everything in between. Plot twist. So here I sit at my tiny desk inside our small house right in the historic center of Amalfi. Thankfully, I can see a few lemon trees and the bright bursts of purple as the bougainvillea in the neighbor’s garden starts to bloom. We have a little balcony off the bedroom that overl...

Angry Italian mayors

If the public health of your community wasn’t enough of an incentive to stay indoors during this pandemic, maybe mayors yelling at you and threatening you will do the trick. In Italy, Europe’s epicenter of the outbreak, where the lockdown has been in place the longest, mayors and governors around Italy went on TV to discourage people from breaking quarantine and socializing unnecessarily. And by “discourage people,” we mean “scare the living daylights out of people.” Vincenzo De Luca, Gove...
