The new issue of Italia! is out now

A warm welcome to the latest Italia! magazine – another packed issue celebrating the best of Italy. We’ve all spent what seems a long time contemplating our favourite country from afar – but as I write, it really does seems as if we are on the cusp of change. Travel is tentatively opening up, and making plans is a concept back on the agenda!

Baby steps, as they say – and, as we might not all be rushing back to Italy just yet, our ‘At Your Fingertips’ virtual courses feature will bring il bel paese closer to you, wherever you are. We also welcome the return of live opera festivals to Italy with our essential opera lovers’ guide – which includes hotel and restaurant recommendations if you are making plans! Le Marche is also a star of this issue – we travel to the historic city of Urbino as well as taking a look at the property prospects and quality of life in this captivating region.

In the kitchen, there are plenty of Italian recipes to rustle up as well as a new series from resident chef Mario Matassa, on a mission to get friends and family together to share his simple, seasonal dishes. We taste the king of Italian cheese, Parmigiano Reggiano – and sample vibrant wines from Sicily, pure sunshine in a glass! All this, plus your photos, our dual-language Gazzetta, what’s on – and much more!
