His life-long fascination with Italian culture drives him to want to share what he's learned from his father and from his experiences in Italy with those who share the traveler's spirit.
We often write about places and things that strike us as being the *real* Italy, places where you feel a deep connection to an authentic sense of “Italian-ness”, places that offer an emotional connection that contrasts sharply with more typically-touristy-Italy. Think along the lines of a quiet afternoon on Burano…versus Piazza San Marco with a few thousand cruise ship denizens standing in line to get into the basilica. Piemonte for us perfectly epitomized that sense of Italian-ness--in a way that resonates deeply and no less poignantly in the days since we left it to come back to the states. We pretty well cannot wait to go back, and plan on making more contacts, learning more about its food and wine, and thoroughly absorbing everything about it that we can.
