What Makes ITALY Special



No nation is defined by its wine, like Italy. As pointed out by Burton Anderson, a daily supply of everyday table wine costs Italians less than a regular supply of bread. In fact, it’s an unspoken truth that in Italy, wine is food and cannot miss on a dinner table any more than a fork or a knife. The winemaking tradition in Italy began with Greeks (south) and Etruscans (center) and continued the with the Romans. Although Italians were not the first ones to invent wine, they developed quite a serious passion for it. Today, Italy is the largest wine producer of wine by volume, and its production represents incredible one-third of the global production. After all, there are over one million vineyards under cultivation scattered around the country and grapes are grown almost in all its regions. 

According to a chef, Giorgio Locatelli, being Italian means that when you wake up, what you are going to have for lunch, and what you look like are the two most essential things on your mind. It’s virtually impossible to overestimate the way Italians feel about food. That relationship goes way beyond nourishment. Every region has its own spin on Italian food. Hence, heated discussions about how you should prepare a particular dish or what sauce goes with which pasta shape is as serious a matter as it gets. Despite the diversity and even culinary disagreements, Italian cuisine is united by the absolute simplicity of its dishes and fresh ingredients cooked with love. It’s not at all surprising, UNESCO recognized the renown Mediterranean Diet along with olive oil, fresh tomatoes, and garlic as Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity.

Walking down the streets in one of Italy’s charming cities, it’s impossible to ignore the well-dressed locals walking around with an air of stylish confidence. Hence, it’s not hard to guess fashion completes the trinity of untouchable Italian passions. But beware! For Italians, fashion is not just about the clothes but also the attitude - attitude of sophistication. The roots of Italian fashion reach all the way back to the 14th-century Florence. It was the elite families of the period such as the Medici who began to bound display and appearance with their identity. However, it was not until the postwar period of the 20th-century that Italy’s international fashion industry positively took off. While before all the roads led to Rome, the fashion runways stretched all the way to Milan, the thriving epicenter of the country’s fashion industry.

Italy extends beyond Rome, Florence, Milan, and Venice. Beyond the mainland and out into the sea. From Sardinia to Sicily, Ponza to Elba, the Italian boot that juts out into the Mediterranean boasts some of the most beautiful islands in the whole world. Swimming, snorkeling, and diving in crystal clear waters. Exploring rock pools, caves or just lounging on a beautiful beach. These are, but a few of things you can do on Italy’s many islands. Beautiful sleepy multi-colored towns cascade down hillsides to the shores. Here, promenades host lovely seafood restaurants, stunning vistas, and fresh sea air. You can rent a boat and explore hidden coves. Or, make for nearby islands for a taste of a different kind of island living. The islands of Italy are off-cuts of paradise, beautiful little treasures and the best of what to do in Italy.

If you love the outdoors you mustn't miss out on exploration of the awe-inspiring Italian Alpine landscape. From Piedmont, Aosta Valley, Lombardy to Trentino-South Tyrol, Veneto and Friuli Venezia Giulia, there are plenty of opportunities for outdoor sports and activities year round. Whether you love to ski, hike or enjoy the thrill of water sports, you can find your poison here. Italian Alps are for everyone. Extreme sports buffs, nature lovers, families with children looking for active fun as well as those seeking leisure and relaxation. Passion, nature, tradition, hospitality and finger-licking cuisine… a visit to the Italian Alps, the stunning mountain range cutting through ten countries, will leave you speechless. Plus, the medieval villages and hidden valleys will steal your heart. So, answer the call of the mountains, you won’t regret it!
