L’Ora Stabile. The book on Marco Stabile | preface by Paolo Marchi

Marco Stabile is a chef and a restaurateur that I have always liked very much, from the first bite in his restaurant Ora d’Aria, which is not the one everyone now knows and applauds near the course of the Arno River.

Tignanello. A Tuscan Story

The prologue of Piero Antinori in Tignanello I remember the lengthy discussions about it with my father, with our collaborators and friends, meeting after meeting, at Palazzo Antinori in the late 1960s.

And, it was all going to be labelled with this far from evocative name, completely unfa-…

The Land of Olive Oil 2014. The value of oil as a sign of territorial civilization

The preface by Fausto Borella published in The Land of Olive Oil 2014. One thing is certain. For Extra-virgin olive oil producers, oil changes every year depending on variable factors related to climate, territory, or extraction method. Never before this year has it been as complicated and expensive to produce their precious food in terms of yield. Nevertheless, the veterans of good oil and emerging companies or those already present within this book continue to…

Pinchiorri, Two Voices that Become One. Giorgio Pinchiorri’s Wine Cellar

At the time, we were both very young and I loved eating in that place that was so ‘familiar’. I didn’t even have to make a great effort to get there, all I…

Un enigmatico mistero

Il contributo di Mauro Castelli pubblicato in Enigma di Ferragosto, 9° titolo della collana iVitali. La curiosità, come si sa, amplifica le sensazioni. E ancor di più succede quando fa breccia nei ricordi. Se poi a confrontarsi, o sarebbe meglio dire a completarsi, sono un grande scrittore e un altrettanto grande pittore, ovvero Andrea Vitali e Giancarlo Vitali (un’omonimia che trova un punto di incontro soltanto nel paese natale di Bellano), beh, allora, le cose…
