I love how in Italy there's a fountain at nearly every Piazza. The Greeks sadly lagged in this aspect of town planning.

Also Simona, thank you for nominating my food blog. It was a surprise and I'm touched, thank you!


That's a beautiful fountain, Simona :)


I like the cartolina concept! I used to like sucking the chocolate off chocolate-covered-almonds before eating the nut. But your story sounds far more cultured and wonderful. :)


I tuoi post sono sempre interessantissimi.

freerice is addictive -- i've had to cut myself off!


Queste pinoccate proprio non le conoscevo! È una vita che non vado a Perugia! E grazie per la segnalazione degli eventi! Un abbraccio

Must have been a wonderful visit home.


bella ricetta Simo, tradizionale e tipica di una città che amo molto.
Ricordati di mandare l'email con tutti i dati. Baci!


I'd love to taste pinoccate on the steps of the cattedrale. How exciting that you'll be the WHB host!



You are more than welcome, Peter! I have never been to Greece, so I did not know about what you mention: interesting.

Thanks, Maryann.

Hi Kevin, something to keep in mind for your next trip to Italy.

Grazie, Lenny.

Hi Laurie: I had to exert some pressure on myself too. I have always been into word games.

Ciao Alex: sono da provare, almeno un pezzetto.

Hi Gay: it was. I really like my home town.

Ciao Francesca. Il mio post per il tuo evento arrivera' verso fine settimana. A proposito, devo fare piu' foto.

Hi Paz, I am indeed quite excited.

Ooh, pine nut candies? Yum! I don't think I've had them before. I love the anise candies I get at my local Italian market in Little Italy. I'll have to ask about these next time I'm there.


Hi Susan. Let me know how it goes: I am curious to know whether they can be found here.

I was in Perugia for just 2 hours last October, but I did get to see the Fontana Maggiore. It was beautiful and so is Perugia. I hope to return some day, for a few more hours!


I hope you will, Anna Maria: there are more beautiful things to see in Perugia.
