You’re about to get a Southern Italy cookbook, a taste of the Italian summer culture, a short trip to Salerno, and a full immersion in Italians’ seasonal habits and activities.

 

Oh, Summer in Italy!

The blue skies, the green parks, the turquoise waters, the red tomatoes

The sweet breeze, the dazzling sun, the fresh sea waves

The sizzle of barbecues, the sound of children playing soccer on the beach, the music from the houses…

The tenderness of the grilled fish, the crunch of the granita ice, the sparkling of a Spritz

The sweetness of the jasmine flowers by the street, the penetrating odor of seafood, the rich scent of tanning cream

Well, I guess I covered all five senses, but there’s something quite more difficult to tell: the sweet-memories effect. It’s like everything about Summer in Italy has one pure, instinctive purpose: to evoke childhood, youth and every pleasant feeling that accompanied them.

I guess Summer is simply the season when you feel allowed to splash into sensations, naturally, primordially, and deeper than any other time of the year.

Ready? Take a deep breath…
