Autumn is just the perfect time to curl up on the sofa and watch a good movie.
If during summer months I am barely at home, trying to be outside as much as I can, in autumn things change quite a bit. I usually have dinner quite early at night – most of the times at 7 pm, which is pretty early for Italian standards – and then I sit on the sofa with my dog and a comfy blanket, ready for a wild night either with a book or with Netflix.
You know how much I love Italian provincial towns, right?
If given the chance, I’ll never restrain myself from saying that the real beauty of Italy lies in these often ignored quiet little towns. And even if nobody asks my opinion about that, I’ll always find a way of saying so – you should know that already. But the thing is that I strongly believe that if you really want to know Italy, you should go and spend some time in a provincial town and I am sure that, if you do so, you’ll fall in love with my country once and for all.
Sometimes phrases convey a meaning that goes beyond their literal one.
No matter of well you know a language, there’ll always be hues of meaning that you might not immediately get until a native explains them to you or until you spend some time in the country where such language is spoken.
I have recently discovered a new Italian writer which you absolutely need to know!
Her name is Donatella Di Pietrantonio and I am sure that – once you know her – you will love her work as much as I do. She has written three books so far: I have read two of them in the last couple of weeks and I loved them so much that I immediately wanted to share such love with you!
