Here are the links to some of my Italy Magazine articles from last week:

First of all Jean and Gino Magnone, a Yorkshire couple now living in Ragusa, tell us about their lives here. Gino also describes his arrival in Britain as a child and tells us how, many years later, he traced some members of his Italian family.

For my Tuesday travel article I looked at some great places for food shopping in ten of Italy's most visited cities.  I was so hungry by the time I finished writing this one!

For my Friday Patti Chiari column I wrote about the Nelson Castle at Maniace,  near the town of Bronte northwest of Etna.  I've written about Maniace previously on this blog but newer readers may like to learn about this piece of English history in Sicily.

Finally, you can find out here why Italy is going batty!
