The Italian Summer Edit
'You may have the universe if I may have Italy,' said Verdi, a sentiment that's shared well beyond his fellow countrymen, and one that sees us flock to taste la dolce vita year after year. We dream of boat trips from Positano to Capri, of the Cinque Terre's pastel fishing villages' dramatic topography, perched high on clifftops that crash into the Ligurian Sea. We crave aperitivi, Sicilian olives and loaded plates of pasta followed by sugary sips of Limoncello. We long to walk the halls of Italy's galleries and churches, and tour its most ancient arenas.
Italy is rich in history, with a culture steeped in the arts, craftsmanship, family and food. From the classic film to watch to locally crafted products, we've rounded up 12 ways to channel the beauty of this idyllic region, whether you're at home or journeying to Italian shores this summer.
