Here is my pick of last week's Italy Magazine articles:

Christmas is almost upon us but you may also be thinking about where to spend New Year's Eve.  If you are going to be in Italy, there is a fantastic free show to be enjoyed in Bologna!

This was the week in which both the Vatican City and the town of Gubbio [Umbria]  prepared, in their different ways, for Christmas.  Which of the two trees would you rather see?  Meanwhile, in Tuscany, there is one exhibition I would love to visit, for what woman could resist a red stiletto?  None of these ladies, I am sure. Finally, with regard to the news stories, I had to laugh at this.  "Viva l'amore", say I, but I don't think I would be feeling so tolerant if I had been among the passengers!

For my Patti Chiari column I wrote, in more detail, about Modica's Chocobarocco festival.

Happy reading.

Hi Ms Cakes!
I have a request, can you do a Simi post for Xmas..? Pretty please ;->...

Claude said...

Great selection of articles, Pat. I would love to follow you to any festival...specially a chocolate one!

Freshly made chocolate! I've never experienced the fragrance or the taste! I feel I have missed something grand!

Alex says
"purrrrrrrrrrr" to Simi.

There will be one before that, Gleds. Thanks,Claude. You are always very kind.

Interesting articles all...but, stilettos, no thanks - at 66, they're not for me. In fact, I think wearing them in my youth probably wrecked my back...though they sure make ones legs look lovely!!!

Hi, Nick. It's wonderful! "Woof" and hugs from Simi to you and Alex. Hi, Carmen. Glad you liked the articles. I can't wear stilettos any more either - sigh!
