Filotea, Ancona: the handmade pasta from Le Marche

See on Scoop.it - La Cucina Italiana - De Italiaanse Keuken - The Italian Kitchen

Filotea egg pasta is made according to an ancient recipe from Marche and carefully following the same preparation methods that our ‘grandmas’ once used. Choosing only the best eggs and flour guarantees a genuine product. Furthermore, the pasta is dried very slowly at a low temperature. This special drying process gives the pasta the authentic flavour typical of homemade pasta. This patient, artisan preparation guarantees a unique product which is incredibly light and easy to digest while its textured surface helps absorb sauces thus exalting the flavour of all the ingredients.

Filotea produces traditional egg pasta, flavoured egg pasta and durum wheat semolina pasta in special formats.

A legend from Le Marche: Luigi Fagioli

See on Scoop.it - Good Things From Italy - Le Cose Buone d’Italia

Almost 61 years ago Luigi Fagioli died driving a sports car. This relatively unknown driver did the same as other legends who are more known to the public (Fangio and Ascari) and was even better some times. His impressive career ended unexpectedly in the tunnel of Monaco during the GP of 1952. In May the tragic accident occurred in the tunnel where the car hit the wall. Fagioli died three weeks later, on June 20th, as he struggled to cope with internal injuries who he lost in the end.

On June 9th 1898 Luigi Fagioli was born in a wealthy family at Osimo, (part of the province Ancona, region Marche). As a boy Luigi Fagioli was fascinated by the relatively new invention of the automobile and the ensuing racing. Blessed with great natural driving instincts, a young Fagioli spent several years participating in hillclimbing and sports car races before entering Grand Prix racing in 1926. The turning point for Fagioli’s career was in 1933 when team director and driver Enzo Ferrari invited him to change to Alfa Romeo. He replaced the famous Tazio Nuvolari in the Alfa P3 (Nuvolari changed to Maserati that year). Luigi did not take to much time to adjust and won the Coppa Acerbo, the Grand Prix du Comminges and the Italian GP. People often found Fagioli a daredevil who took unnecessary risks and often lost because of accidents. In spite of that his talent was rising and Mercedes bought the driver in 1934. […]

Trends uit Milaan | Nieuws | Bert Plantagie

See on Scoop.it - Good Things From Italy - Le Cose Buone d’Italia

Op de jaarlijkse ‘Salone Internazionale del Mobile’ in Milaan gebeurt het. De crème de la crème uit de internationale interieurbranche is hier aanwezig: als exposant of op zijn minst als bezoeker. Bert bezocht de beurs én alle inspirerende (pop-up) stores in de stad.

De trends die ons opvielen, zijn onder andere: kleur! Er waren veel gestoffeerde meubelen in mooie pasteltinten uitgevoerd (in plaats van het als vanouds door de branche omarmde zwart-bruin-grijs). Tot ons genoegen zagen we ook in Milaan veel meubels waarvan de stalen frames voorzien waren van (felle) kleuren, zoals een aantal van onze nieuwe modellen.

Firenze Gelato Festival 2013

See on Scoop.it - Good Things From Italy - Le Cose Buone d’Italia

Non è affatto un caso che Firenze Gelato Festival sia nato nel capoluogo toscano. Proprio qui infatti nel 1536 nasceva Bernardo Buontalenti. Artista dai mille volti, pittore, scultore, architetto, scenografo, costruttore di armi, al servizio dei Medici si occupava anche dell’organizzazione delle feste di corte. Incaricato da Cosimo I di seguire l’allestimento del banchetto inaugurale della Fortezza del Belvedere, nel 1559 il Buontalenti lasciò di stucco gli ospiti con una crema fredda fatta con una base di latte, miele, tuorlo d’uovo, oltre ad un tocco di vino, aromatizzata con bergamotto, limoni ed arance. Così il gustoso dolce freddo venne assaggiato e gustato dagli ospiti internazionali dei signori di Firenze che non tardarono a pubblicizzarlo e riproporlo al ritorno nel loro Paese. In qualche decennio Firenze divenne rinomata per essere la culla del gelato, gettando le basi per una tradizione che ancora oggi vanta successi in campo culinario.

Bubbels met klasse en karakter! Pasta e Basta bezocht Franciacorta

See on Scoop.it - Good Things From Italy - Le Cose Buone d’Italia

AZIENDA AGRICOLA SOLARI, gespecialiseerd in het produceren van FRANCIACORTA, metodo classico DOCG.

In Lombardije, nabij het meer van Iseo, ligt het stadje Villa Erbusco. Het ligt in hart van de “Franciacorta-streek”. Naast de kerk vind je enkele hectaren wijnvelden. Hier verbouwen Luca en zijn tante Francesca de druiven voor de gekende aperitiefdrank “Franciacorta” gemaakt volgens de methode “champenoise”. Dit zijn voornamelijk de druivenrassen Chardonnay en Pinot Nero.

Na de dood van haar man hield Francesca zich een tijdlang exclusief bezig met de verkoop van haar druiven. Dat veranderde zodra Luca afstudeerde als sommelier. Ze gingen samen in zee om hun geliefde Franciacorta te produceren.

Een fles Franciacorta is niet goedkoop. Er gaan immers jaren van zorg vooraf aan het moment dat een fles bubbels het wijn goed verlaat.

Italiaans Collevecchio wil Neerijnen als vriend

See on Scoop.it - La Gazzetta Di Lella - News From Italy - Italiaans Nieuws

De Italiaanse gemeente Collevecchio heeft Neerijnen op het oog voor een vriendschapsband.

Dat schrijft Burgemeester Carlo Grappa van de Italiaanse gemeente in een brief aan zijn Neerijnense collega, burgemeester Alex van Hedel van Neerijnen.

Het doel van de vriendschapsband, een jumellage, is het bevorderen van uitwisseling op bijvoorbeeld het gebied van muziek, cultuurhistorie, kunst, land- en tuinbouw en lokale tradities. Collevecchio wil dat vooral wordt gekeken wat de vriendschapsband kan betekenen voor de jeugd in beide gemeenten. Een werkgroep in Collevecchio bekijkt welke sectoren voor de culturele uitwisseling in aanmerking kunnen komen.

Collevecchio is een middeleeuws stadje met belangrijke prehistorische vondsten, gelegen in een heuvellandschap 60 kilometer ten noorden van Rome.

Burgemeester Alex van Hedel van Neerijnen ziet een vriendschapsband met de Italiaanse gemeente wel zitten. “Maar,” stelt hij, “het initiatief moet vooral vanuit de samenleving worden gedragen. Daarbij kun je denken aan instellingen voor cultuur en kunst, of het bedrijfsleven.”
