Milano Fashion Weeks

Written by

If there’s one city that worthy of the “fashion capital” crown, it’s Milan. Milan is without a doubt the capital of Italian and international fashion. Cosmopolitan, it incorporates luxury, art, gastronomy and culture… it’s the perfect place for fashionistas and industry enthusiasts.

Twice a year, in September and in February, Milano is crowded with buyers, models, journalists but also fashion lovers strolling up and down the “quadrilatero della moda” (the golden rectangle), looking for the best and latest fashion ideas. It’s during these weeks that the most renowned designers in the world present their collections . And we of Vitor are always “on the spot” with our customers, taking them around this vivid city, breathing together the electric and vibrant atmosphere of Milano downtown.

LIVING THE CARNIVAL IN VENICE

Written by

LIVING THE CARNIVAL IN VENICE is extraordinary and unique experience: the centenary tradition, which dates back to the thirteenth century, gives life to a party that continues for a month: here are held dinners, dances, costumed parades, courses of historical dance and sewing, to make perfect and unique costumes according to the original patterns of ancient times.

Forget the usual commercial and raucous Carnival: in Venice carnival means elegance, refinement of details, sober fun and history!

LANDSCAPE AND ART IN ITALY

Written by

Italian landscape plays on the traveler a charm comparable to our food, climate and our way of life.

The variety of our country's natural environment (with its seas and islands, mountains, lakes and countryside) can not be distinguished from the cities that have been built over the centuries.

The beauty of the villages and art cities is also due to the place where they were built. For example, think of what Naples would be without its gulf and Vesuvius in the background. Moreover, a monument can’t be valued at its best without considering the landscape around, especially in a culturally rich nation like Italy.

5 TERRE, discover amazing Liguria

Written by

Do you want to spend your holidays at the sea ? Do you want to visit some authentic places and eat some typical Italian food ? Well, Liguria is the perfect mix between amazing sea, stunning places and delicious food. Liguria is a coastal region in north-western Italy that borders with France.

Our tour in Liguria is more precisely around 5 Terre and Sestri Levante. I’m going to share with you this unforgettable trip and I hope you will enjoy it :) .

Before starting this short guide about the city of Romeo and Juliet, I will answer some frequently asked questions …

WHERE IS VERONA?

Verona is in the region of Veneto, north- east of Italy, not far from Lake Garda and Venice. If you’re staying in Verona and want to take a day visit to Venice, in approximately 90 minutes, both by car and train, you can reach it.

Here we are with some tips on words or phrases which Italian and English borrowed from Latin. I studied Latin at Secondary School and I strongly favour the teaching of Latin (at least in Italy), even if today it is seldom taught in schools other than Classical Lycees. Why? Because Latin is very rational, it is a mathematical language, a language with strict rules: translating Cicero or Seneca is like solving an equation, if you know the rules and apply them, the result will be one, and only one. Romans enjoyed themselves in inverting the order of the phrase, putting verbs at its end: the more complicated the order, the more “beautiful” the sentence. For instance, “in medio stat virtus” (virtue is in the middle), you see? Complement, then verb and finally name, the exact contrary. I remember my satisfaction when I translated Latin at school, the same satisfaction I had when solving an equation: the puzzle was finished, every piece in its exact place.

In Tuscany, eat like a Tuscan

Written by

I am in love with Tuscany: a perfect combination of landscapes, art, culture. I really am, also because "il mi nonno”, my grandfather, originally came from Serravalle, in the province of Arezzo. But there’s another reason why I love it so much: its CUISINE.

Tuscan Cuisine is one of the oldest among Italian regional cuisines. Even today, many of the typical dishes are still prepared according to their original recipe. Like almost all Italian traditional cuisines, the Tuscan one is characterized by simple preparations with easy-to-find country ingredients, but here dishes always have strong and decisive flavors. I love Tuscan cuisine because it is straight, truthful, trattoria-style; the dishes are tasty and salutary, nutritious, refined without becoming pretentious.

In Rome, eat like a Roman

Written by

When you are in Italy, eat like a local.

Yes, because if you do not know Italian cuisine you might think you are eating a typical Amatriciana in Florence, or enjoying a typical Mortadella in Venice. The fact is that Italian cuisine is not a national but a regional cuisine, and each region has its own specialties: if you find the same dishes in another region, many times the "national" version is far from the original, “local” one. So, it's time to venture into a world of typical restaurants where you will not find Italians but Romans, Venetians, Florentines, Neapolitans.
