about the Chianti Classico Issue

The Chianti Classico issue of Simposio is a guide to traditional recipes, beautiful pictures, and good reads.

The Chianti region is not just a place to go on vacation or for a road trip (although you should, at least once in your life), but it is also a land of rich culture, folklore, and traditions.

Before going, get your copy of Simposio.

Snuggle on the couch, sip from a glass of good wine, and listen to soft music. There’s so much to learn, so much to devour (with your eyes), and so much to put in your travel bucket list!

about Simposio

Simposio is an Italian recipes, stories, and culture magazine.

In Ancient Greece and Rome, philosophers, artists, and a few lucky ones attended rich banquets followed by wine, singing, dancing, playing, and cultural conversations.
This last part was called Symposium, Simposio in Italian.
And that’s what you will experience when you browse the pages of the magazine: a world of meaningful conversation, inspiring learning, and dionysian pleasures.

Expect the following:

  • exploring the best monuments and secret places
  • things to add to your Italian bucket list
  • local & authentic recipes
  • jokes, beautiful words and expressions
  • culture, habits, and lifestyle
  • seasonal fun and inspiration
  • lovely pictures

A little technical stuff:

  • You can choose between print and digital (Kindle).
  • Servings are for two people, to be duplicated as desired.
  • Measures are in gr, cups, and oz.
