One thing that most of the visitors often take for granted is that Italy has always been one single Country. The truth is pretty different. I think it might be useful to offer you with another perspective and suggest a different travel itinerary based on the process which led the Italian Peninsula to unify itself under the flag of a single Monarch: the House of Savoy.
For many, Italy is the best place in the world for food . Despite I am Italian, I won’t say it’s “the” best, but definitely in good companyfood, together with the French and the Spanish one.
I will complete today an unusual path in the city of Naples, home of Pizza, the Pastiera cake, Coffee making and Sfogliatelle as well as of superstition, devotion, sacred and profane.
Follow my friend Benedetta Appiano (aka Donna Cuncetta) in her discovery of what is uniquely sacred and profane around the Vesuvius Volcano.
The Italians have always been big travelers, explorers, poets, artists, musicians, writers and statesmen. No other people in the world is surrounded by beauty such as the Italians, both the natural one and that produced the creativity and the mastery of their ancestors, which is proved by the immense artistic heritage of the Country, which ranks 1st in the UNESCO world heritage list.
