Events columnist John Bensalhia revs up the autumn engine with some distinctly (and deliciously) seasonal festivals.
As we put finishing touches on our quarterly digital magazine, Bellissimo, we want to hear what YOU love most about Piemonte — land of Barolo, Juventus and so much more.
Often overlooked in favor of hilltop towns and seaside villages, Italy’s foothill towns spill down the lower slopes of some of the country’s most dramatic mountain ranges, offering sweeping vistas.
Events columnist John Bensalhia welcomes autumn with a wealth of festivals and fairs to enjoy this September.
Buckle up for a full summer of festivals: here, John Bensalhia charts some of the highlights.
This delicious and summery sweet relies on a top-quality DOCG dessert wine as its base.
Agnolotti, little bundles of fresh pasta that are filled with anything from a mix of meats to vegetables, are an iconic dish of the Piedmont region of northern Italy.
This baked cake has a surprisingly delicate almond flavor. Enjoy a slice with coffee or tea, or a glass of amaretto liqueur.
Pesche ripiene piemontesi is a typical Piedmontese dessert made with peaches and crushed amaretti that you often find on the menus during the summer season.
My wife and I are from the US citizens and have recently purchased a property in Piedmont near Moncalvo. We are in the process of engaging a local architect to help us with the restoration and renovation of the property.
