We thought we’d post some pictures of things (places, events, etc) of what we like about Italy … so here goes… [click on them to enlargen]

First, historic cities like Siena —

… and historic churches like this Romanesque church in Monteriggioni…


And morning cafe latte… (and afternoon latte)….

And the smell and taste and experience of watching a butcher cut “prosciutto” — Italy’s famous ham for sandwiches…

… and vineyards, like Gabbiano’s famous vineyard in Tuscany Gabbiano.jpg

    Scot, is the sky always that blue? That is a sight for sore eyes to this Chicagoan.

    You’ll have to go down to Alberobello in Southern Italy and see the Trulli Houses some time. It’s quite a quaint little town and very unique. I loved my time spent there.

    I’ll take any of those things, but am also especially fond of the afternoon coffee.

    No-one does magnificent faded splendour with such style as the Italians

    Scot, correct pesto -can- be made in a blender. Blend 2/3 of the ingredients until smooth, then add the remaining greens + hard cheese and blend slow until rustic texture.
    These Italy posts are making me homesick.

    There’s nothing like Italian sights, nights, sounds, food, coffee, topography, history and people. We’re all jealous. Gratzi for sharing!

    Real Italian Prosciutto is to die for!
