THE SOUNDTRACK

Fred Buscaglione

Paolo Conte, by the way, his concert at Turin’s Venaria is worth a place of honor in your jazzy vynil collection! (here’sthe Amazon affiliate link).

Giorgio Conte, Paolo’s brother, wrote one of my favorite songs on my Wine & Vynils playlist: Gnè Gnè.

Italian Pride

The Turinese neurologist Rita Levi Montalcini won the Nobel Prize for medicine in 1986.

A quote:

SHOPPING

When I won our family Fanta-Masterchef, I had no doubt what my prize would be: a tasting box born from the collaboration of a Turinese chocolatier and a Vermouth historic maker! You can order yours here!

The beautiful card that accompanied it represents the imaginary Gianduja tree, a hybrid of cocoa and hazelnut trees.
