PrinceEmanuele Filiberto would have been Italy’s crown prince if the country had remained a monarchy. Instead, he grew up in exile and has instead found a place in Italian society as a television personality, winning the Italian Version of Strictly Come Dancing! James Miller talks to him about the surprising direction his life has taken in this issue of Italia magazine.




Easter MercatelloEvery region of Italy has special Easter traditions, but Mercatello sul Metauro in Le Marche is something else again. Rachel Beckwith goes off the beaten track to witness the lifelike leather Jesus, which has been part of the celebration for more than 1,000 years. And that’s not the only reason to visit – the Easter cakes are pretty impressive too…





PorkIn the kitchen our resident chef in Italy, Mario Matassa has been cooking up pork, surely the meat the Italians are most obsessed with. He explores why pork is so special to the Italian diet, and shares his four favourite recipes to cook a taste of Italy in your own kitchens. Even if you are not hosting a festival of pork like Mario, these recipes are certainly worth a celebration.




We also think its about time Fiano wine was more celebrated in the UK, and many wine industry insiders are tipping 2014 as the year it challenges Pinot Grigio for the crown of Italian white wine of choice. Hannah Bellis uncovers the best 7 bottle available in the UK, so you can beat the rush and sample it before the price goes up!
