Gabriele, the Dog, and the Genius

I just returned from leading a glorious tour up north in Italy, to Vicenza, the city of Palladio, and Venice, La Serenissima. In addition to having a blast with a return group of travelers — plus two new friends — I had some nice inspiration time on trains and in my room. Here’s the first story to emerge . .…

Autonoleggio: The Worst Thing About Travel

No, no, no. There’s no such thing as cheap and cheerful. It’s cheap and nasty and expensive and cheerful -Jeremy Clarkson I’ve been traveling for quite a while now, and no matter where I go — Italy, the UK, France, Belgium, San Francisco — the absolute worst part of the trip is dealing with car rental agencies. And, when we…

(Nearly) a Month in the (Old) Country

I am not a great cook, I am not a great artist. But I love art and I love food, so I am the perfect traveler — Michael Palin It keeps getting better, Italy. And I’m pretty sure that’s not just a comparison to what’s been going on in the good ol’ USA these days. No matter where you stand…

In Abruzzo: Arrosticini on the Range

This article first appeared in DreamofItaly.com If you’re a fan of spaghetti westerns, you might recognize the location of Ristoro Mucciante, a barbecue-delipicnic spot on Campo Imperatore in the region of Abruzzo. This is the area Italians call “Little Tibet” because of its similar mountainous terrain, but also because of the geography of spirit that the area invokes. In 1970, Campo Imperatore was the site for a series of…

Happy National Poetry Month!

Poetry is just the evidence of life. If your life is burning well, poetry is just the ash — Leonard Cohen I’m always excited when April comes around, because I can officially come out as a poet. People who know me well know that I teach poetry at Explorers (Lifelong Learning Institute) at least once a year and that I always offer…

Happy Anniversary, Cucina Abruzzese!

It was one year ago this month . . . First, a huge box arrived. It took two of us to drag it into the kitchen. Like the “important award” box in A Christmas Story, the box said in bold letters: FRAGILE. Only this box really was from Italy. Inside was a cornucopia of all things Abruzzese. There were wheels…

On the Road Island Diner

In Utah: Behind the Zion Curtain — (I can’t take credit) I apologize for the radio silence. January was a trying month. Some friends rented our places in Sulmona to avoid being in the USofA to witness the events of January 20th and we treated them to an earthquake, a massive snowstorm and a nearby avalanche. They’re still talking to…

Our Tiny Italian Flat

I was offered a free villa in Hollywood, but I said no thank you, I prefer to live in Italy — Ennio Morricone   This is our tiny flat in Italy. Stone and tile and wood in a 70 square meter structure that comprised the western wall of the city some 1000 years ago, with a lower level rumored to be Roman – a cantina, perhaps, for cold storage of wine and produce. When we are here, we rattle around together in this one bedroom, one bath, combined kitchen-dining-laundry room, with the strange but lovely lower level. It’s not perfect, but it’s enough. At home in the States, we want more. We acquire, sometimes without even knowing why. In Italy,…
