Agenda. Peony and African cocoa flower – on a base of Turkish rose, with hints of ginger. The perfume seeks that euphoria that explodes when in California, at the Post Ranch Inn, your eyes widen before a shower of shooting stars.

Three meals per day to be eaten in silence, sitting at one’s table – alone - on a patio with a view of the lake. No talking allowed, no reading or writing. Maximum concentration as you eat

Hotels in Rome

Text Carlo Mazzoni. The new Eden is too tucked away, the haunt of questionable bloggers. Palazzo Dama is pretentious. The worst seems to be the Gran Melia on Gianicolo

In Italy, on the loose

By |July 4th. 2018|

Text Angelica Carrara. We have looked for the most peculiar floorings. As of late, while the new trend on Instagram is to take pictures of feet over majolica or intarsia floors, we have been after the five most beautiful floorings that actually exist. To mark the stages of an Italian-style summer.

Chateau d’Artigny

Text Carlo Mazzoni. The patio of the castle overlooks a precipice, difference in height without vertigo. Start from here, from Chateau d’Artigny.

Text Carlo Mazzoni.In January there is stillness. At sunset of frost and there is silence on the Grand Canal. It seems strange. Venice in winter, without the Carnival and Christmas. The Aman is a lit fireplace, a card game in the afternoon, a dinner in the calli – breakfast under the white light.
