The 13 street foods you must eat in Italy

After talking so much about pizza in my last posts, I thought it would be nice to explore the topic of Italian street food.

Pizza is one of the foods you can find all over Italy, either in pizzerie or rosticcerie (places that sell pizza and other baked or fried things), but that’s more to Italian street food than that.

Italian regional cuisines are very rich and developed, this means that each area offers a variety of typical dishes that cannot be found in other parts of Italy. This is also true when it comes to street food.

So, without wanting to be thorough, I’m going to try and give you a glimpse of a few, delightful options when it comes to grab a bite in Italy: Continua a leggere

#The baton of cinema

Pangurina9 thank for making my name and I invite you to visit her post;)  

This is the tag “the baton of cinema” and was designed by Eleanor Panzeri,¬†I will leave¬†her link:¬†le infinite vie di un’autrice

Simple rules to follow are:

– Mention the designer of the tags and thank those who have delivered

– Writing a quote from a movie that we carry in the heart

РInvite 5 other  bloggers to do the same

One of my favorite movies is “Dead poets society”, I¬†think¬†that is a masterpiece!

Robin Williams is… actually, was (cannot get used to the idea that he is no longer with us) an amazing¬†actor, able to tap into the heart of anyone.

Every time I see one of his films I burst into tears from the emotion or I laugh until I cry! :p

I think for anyone who has embarked the exciting enterprise to express their thoughts and passions on a blog, no quote is appropriate… I think that nothing is easy and even if life doesn’t go as we would like, although everything we¬†do seems an uphill climb, even if we feel the only ones to think in a certain way we must always remember that …
