Tre Amici

Allison Amato, Luciano Brussolo (a Real Italian) and me…

Italy is a complicated place: quintessential Beautiful Chaos.  It’s full of people who are passionate, messy, political, religious, scandalous and sometimes just a little crazy.  But they’re magnificent and compelling, too.  Italy is defined by its precious embrace of tradition, history, art and human expression.  There is a reason so much of the world is fascinated with Italy!   In times of so much bad political press within the wine world of Italy, sometimes it’s good to be reminded of the beautiful things as well.

My friend Allison Amato (another card-carrying member of the Italian-American Club) sent me a link to this short video created by the Perennial Plate and I just had to share it…

If you have 4 minutes, check it out.  I’d bet you’ll want to go see Bella Italia in person, too.

She’s waiting for you!

    Thank you for the short. We were just back last September and, yes, it’s a very special and inspirational place. I have problems explaining the magic to those who haven’t been and this captures some of it. The celebration of its uniqueness, culture, and fun. Maybe I need to expedite my return – this winter has sapped me.

    This was wonderful, Joanie. Thanks for sharing it. I had to restrain myself from jumping up, grabbing the passport, and running to the airport.

    ” Italy is a complicated place: quintessential Beautiful Chaos. It’s full of people who are passionate, messy, political, religious, scandalous and sometimes just a little crazy. ” I just had to quote you on my Facebook wall. So true, so beautiful, so Italia.
