La Dolce Vita University

Experience Sicily friend Carla Gambescia recently published a wonderful book, La Dolce Vita University: An Unconventional Guide to Italian Culture from A to Z. We love entries such as G for Greek Soul of Sicily and N for Norman Arab Sicily!

On Monday night, we enjoyed a fun evening of trivia in New York City at 83 1/2 Ristorante (owned by our Sicilian-American friends, Vincent and Dina Mangiafridda) with our group, Sicily and Southern Italy Culture Circle, featuring facts and figures from Gambescia’s treatise. If you’re looking for an entertaining read and a great gift for the Italofile in your life, look no further. And remember B is for Barbells and Bikinis (the ones at Piazza Armerina) and W is for The Windmills of Sicily.
