“You may have the entire Universe, if I may have Italy.”

Sunset Tramonto

 

Some times I wonder if I will ever stop finding the magic in Italy- if my fascination with this country and all of its beautiful food and wine will slow to a trickle.  How long is it possible to sustain such an incredible level of enthusiasm?

That’s when I remember that warm, glowing feeling that comes over me every time I step off a plane in Milano, Catania, Verona, Torino…  Equal parts happy anticipation, and peaceful homecoming.

“You may have the entire Universe, if I may have Italy.”

–Giuseppe Verdi
