Pizza in Milan. Two restaurants I tried.

A place to eat a special pizza in Milan.

Do you want to eat a pizza in Milan? As everywhere in Italy, you’ll find plenty of pizzerie of different quality. And you know the hometown of the real pizza is Naples.

But Milan is so full of restaurants that you can find nearly everything. Today I want to talk about the fashion of “gourmet pizza”. A pretentious name, isn’t it?

And in my opinion, pizza should be simple at first.

So gourmet pizza is a contradiction itself. Or it’s not if you think of it as a pizza done with high quality ingredients and with some experimentation.

I’m not neither a gourmet nor a food writer, so I’m not able to judge this food trend.

As a local going out dinner I can tell you my favourite places where to find this special pizza in Milan right now.

Venice things to avoid. Venice itself?

2017-06-18 • By

There are many travel blog posts about Venice things to avoid. This one is different.

My tip? Don’t visit Venice. Really, you shouldn’t. I know I write a post about my last visit in Venice. It is exactly after that I started to follow blogs and Facebook pages about the situation in Venice. I know you’ll love to go there, but I’m sure you want to be an aware tourist. You might decide not to visit Galapagos or mount Everest to preserve them. The same way, you may decide to avoid Venice. Here’s some reasons why.

Recent Italian films: Veloce come il vento

2017-05-28 • By

There are some recent Italian films that are going in a new direction. Good quality films with an eye on market.

You know what I think? Dramas, poetic comedy- dramas à la Beningni’s Life Is Beautiful and films with the last TV-comedian in the leading role are not enough. It’s time for something different.

Recently some Italian directors are finally experimenting an Italian way to other genres: science fiction (like They call me Jeeg) and action movies.

Among these I would place Veloce come il vento, also known with the international title Italian Race. Here’s the trailer in Italian. This is the first motor race movie among recent Italian films I remember. Actually, I think it’s the only motor race Italian film ever.
