Chianti slow travel guide: The Simposio magazine issue of Chianti

about the Simposio mag

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.

Enjoy your Chianti slow travel guide!
