This year’s Villa Arconati Music Festival ended with a bang! The dancing began with the incredibly talented African American artist Gregory Porter. Seeing him perform on stage makes it hard to imagine that this dream job as a child was an office job with the government. L’ultima serata di Villa Arconati ha regalato vere emozioni. […]

Welcome ARGENTINA! Two concerts with a Latin American flavor. First there was Richard Galliano with his new project the TANGARIA QUARTET. The Italian-French musician performed a tango-jazz mix along with his highly skilled band. Unfortunately the show was just way too short. Lasting only about 45 minutes, I wasn’t able to fully engross myself in […]

My expectations weren’t very high. Non avevo molte aspettative! Up until recently I had never heard of Yann Tiersen. Yann Tiersen era un personaggio a me sconosciuto. To make matters worse it had been raining all day in Milan, not the greatest for an open air concert. We took our seats and opened our umbrellas. […]

SMOOTH. That’s all I could think about while listening to the components of the Paolo Fresu Quintet play. E’ tutto quello che riuscivo a pensare mentre ascoltavo il quintetto di Paolo Fresu che suonava sul palco. But I guess I should backtrack. The fabulous Paolo Fresu Quintet concert was preceded by Davide Zilli. Davide is […]

For about an hour the previously unknown to me Arto Lindsay played an eclectic fusion style music with his very extravagant guitarist Marc Ribot, after which they made way for Raphael Gualazzi. Dopo circa un’ora di musica sperimentale di cui ignoravo l’esistenza il buon Arto Lindsay con la sua band originale e l’estroso chitarrista Marc […]

“Greatest thing you could ever learn  Is just to love and be loved in return To be loved in return” And so began the magical concert by George Benson for the Villa Arcontati Music Festival. A beautiful serenade of love songs and melodic jazz pieces that brought me back to my childhood, and especially Sunday […]

I found myself standing in front of this group of funny Icelandic hipsters called “Mum” a band consisting of 3 women and 4 men. Mi sono ritrovata davanti questo gruppo di buffi hipster Islandesi…..erano i Mùm: 3 ragazze e 4 ragazzi. Fortunately, I was pleasantly surprised to find their melodies original but also containing a […]

Baked Stuffed Zucchini Flowers - Zucchini farciti con provolone

“What in the world is he wearing?” was the first thing I thought when Stefano Bollani walked out to the stage, wearing a ruffled white shirt and denim jeans. Ma come si e’ vestito? E’ stata la prima cosa che ho pensato quando Stefano Bollani e’ uscito sul palco, ha una camicia bianca stropicciata ed […]

spedini di vitello - veal skewers with provolone

It was just your average concert, instead it was more like a theatrical showcase, an intriguing mix between music, literature, and fiction. In it Vinicio animates the stage with a crazy, happy, sad, depressing and magical world of animals and love. Or more precisely “The Carnival of the Animals and Other Animals of Love” Non […]

Le Sanglier Paresseux - outdoor 2

For me travel is about food. I have a seriously hard time characterizing a vacation as good, if I didn’t eat well at the destination. I think it’s pretty easy to find info on what sites to sees when you get to wherever you are going. The real hard part is finding good places to […]
