Italian Style

There is nothing like it!

When you grow up with names like Armani, Ferragamo, Gucci, Prada, Valentino and Versace, how can you be anything but stylish?

It’s the Italian’s birth right and they own it.  Their presence exudes confidence.

Even on the hottest days, they manage to look unwrinkled and elegant.

The bare ankles with the Italian loafers is quite the sexy look.

The glasses, the leather briefcase…

These two were the epitome of Italian style.  They didn’t miss a detail…the cigarette, the luggage, the dog and that dog collar!

It doesn’t get much better than this.

Benvenuti!

Espresso in Italy is dedicated to my love for all things Italian.  Since 2004, I’ve had the fortune to travel to Italy almost annually.  I cannot get enough of her culture, food, style, wine, coffee and people.

The page is still in the works, but soon I will be sharing what I have learned over the years from the must see places and events to amazing meals.  I can’t wait to introduce you to the helpful people who can bring it all together when you are ready to go.

Watch for interviews with many expats who have chosen to make Italy their home and place of business.  And there’s the myriad of books written about Italy.  They will be highlighted here.

Next month I will be back in Florence and visiting Venice for Carnevale and I’m looking forward to sharing the adventures with you!
