Palazzina di Stupinigi Visitor Guide | Piemonte

The UNESCO World Heritage Site called Palazzina di Caccia di Stupinigi is located a few kilometers south of Turin. It was designed by the architect Filippo Juvarra for Victor Amadeus II, King of Sardinia. The word “stupendous” does not derive from Stupinigi, yet…I liked visiting Piemonte’s premier Baroque hunting lodge quite a bit. The borgo and the grounds surrounding Stupinigi (Parco Naturale di Stupinigi) offer more down to earth eye candy. I also like the label, “palazzina” or “small”...

Liquori Bernard: The Alps in a Bottle

Giacomo Bernard returned to his valley, the Val Chisone from Marseille in 1902 and became a beverage producer, making gazzosa, a lemon drink like Sprite only better. It came in what they called a Codd bottle, with a little marble inside that sealed the carbonated beverage tight so that the cork or stopper wouldn’t pop out. Kids loved it when the adults emptied the bottle into a like amount of beer to create what they called a “panaché” and what might be called a “shandy” by more northerly imbibe...

Day Trip from Rome: The Monster-Filled Gardens of Bomarzo

Parco dei Mostri in Bomarzo Gardens filled with monster heads and fantastical creatures — you’ve probably dreamed of such things or read that they existed, but you just didn’t know where to find them. So, let me tell you about Bomarzo. About an hour and a half north of Rome, just shy of the city of Viterbo, is the town of Bomarzo, home of the Sacro Bosco (Sacred Woods), aka Parco dei Mostri (Park of the Monsters). These Mannerist gardens, filled with gigantic sculptures of monsters, animals (...

Akira Murals at Shibuya Parco, Tokyo June 2018.

One of the first things I did during my recent time in Tokyo was to visit the giant Akira murals found at Shibuya’s Parco shopping mall, now undergoing construction until 2019, the year Katsuhiro Otomo’s Akira manga is set. A year ago during summer there was but one paltry piece at this exact spot, but it has since expanded to fill a huge portion of the contruction walls. ( I also missed an interim set probably put up around the winter of 2017 ). The images are composite/montages of panels ta...

New images revealed for Zaha Hadid Architects LEED Platinum-seeking Generali Tower in Milan

Parco 1923 Scarpetta di Venere

Last year at the Esxence expo in Milan PARCO 1923 introduced the first fragrance Parco 1923, a fresh, intense blend of moss, angelica and juniper with a fine touch of floral notes.

Under Rome: Visiting the Ancient Houses Under Basilica Santi Giovanni e Paolo

Rome is fantastic any time of year. If you look at Rome’s historic climate, you’ll notice it rains a lot in October and November. You’d think this would lead to those long days reading the dog-eared pages of your useless guidebook in your hotel room, but it doesn’t have to come to that. Lots of Rome exists below the surface. You don’t want to miss the old stuff that exists hidden under the modern city. So grab an umbrella while I give you instructions on how to access these things. One of the l...

Torino: Parco del Valentino

Parco Valentino in Fall What if you got the chance to do the medieval period over? The Piemonte city of Torino did just that. The Borgo medievale con Rocca, that is the medieval village with small castle, was built on the left bank of the Po river in the Parco del Valentino by a group of intellectuals and artists for dell’Esposizione Generale Italiana di Torino del 1884. It was to be a typical village as you might find in Piemonte in the 13th century. Here it is as you walk...

Towns to visit near Venice

Veneto , one of the northeastern regions of Italy, is mostly known for Venice and Prosecco. Fair enough. But the northeast of Italy spans from the Adriatic Sea, to Lake Garda, to the Dolomites. In the shadow of La Serenissima are unique towns that are star-shaped; are much older than Venice and still inhabited; or simply offer sweeping views of the land. 1. Torcello and Burano   Burano Venezia, Italy Sparsely-populated Torcello was an important port for centuries, benefiting from...

Neo-Tokyo Is About To Explode – Akira Murals In Shibuya

Back in summer this year I took a picture of the giant poster of Kaneda on his bike in Shibuya, Tokyo, just outside the construction barriers of Parco shopping mall. Just last week or so the poster was taken down, but now replaced with a much more spectacular, giant montage/mural made up of Akira manga drawings. Check out some of the pictures taken by Tokyoites below : These murals decorates the construction wall of Shibuya’s Parco shopping mall, now under renovation until 2019 – the yea...

Parco 1923: Parks and Recreation

The moss-and-greens stand of the Italian brand Parco 1923 on Pitti Fragranze was plagued by journalists and distributors, which usually rarely happens with non-perfumery brands on such events. The reason, however, was: the eponymous fragrance in the green bottle proved to be an order of magnitude more interesting than bathbody brands usually offer, and for me it became one of the main discoveri...

A Local's Guide To Venice: What To See And Do

This July, I visited Venice for the fifth time in seven years. Over those five trips, I have fallen in love with Venice, with her backstreets and her broad canals, with her crowded buildings tumbling against one another and her crowds. After writing my article, "Venice: Must Sees and Mystique", I began to wonder what I had missed on my previous trips. Here are five tips on what to see and do off the beaten track from the eyes of two locals who have lived in Venice their whole lives. Many th...

Night photography workshop in Maremma

I had the fortune to participate in a night photography workshop in Maremma this weekend and wish to share the images without too many words. The beauty of the Milky Way and the night sky speaks for itself! The first photo of the night before darkness fully fell Click to view slideshow. These photos were taken on the beach at Principina a Mare, near Grosseto, where the regional Parco della Maremma begins. What’s characteristic about this beach is the driftwood that people pile into little h...

So I just got back from Japan yesterday. Sorry that I wasn’t more up front about the timing of my trip. I’m one of those people who isn’t comfortable revealing travel plans online, especially when my house is being left unoccupied. It’s tough for me to exist in that intersection of social media and safety. I spent a lot of my trip fighting the urge to post pictures on Instagram. That said, I have so much to share with you. I loved Japan. It’s that simple. The place is magical. The people are be...

Holy crap, I’m going to Japan this summer. Perhaps you’ve taken a look at my , which to date includes over 70 resources. And I’m sure that I haven’t even scratched the surface. There’s no way I’m going to see all of those places, as much as I’d like to. The fact remains that I’m taking this trip with my hubby and we need to do some non-paper things too.  I’m a good wife. So what’s the plan? Here’s what it’s looking like so far: Tokyo Tokyu Hands: This is the mother of all craft stores. Kino...

Venice: Must Sees and Mystique

Venetian first; Italian second. Just as her people proudly proclaim themselves natives of their city over their country, Venice is a city that transcends history: not quite Italian, but something mystical, unique. Venice is born of the ocean and taken by the ocean, caught in a push and pull with time, faced with her own mortality constantly, yet immortal - and perhaps this is why so many are drawn to her flooded shores, drawn by the sense that she has survived so long only to possibly disappe...
