So where to go in Italy? There’s no contest says Annmarie O’Connor — the Emilia Romagna region, a northern province known for its medieval cities, rich gastronomy and unstudied elegance.
When tasting the sweet life, it’s arguable there’s no better place than Italy. ‘La Dolce Vita’ has long been a paradigm for living well, even before its meaning acquired international currency. After all, enjoying everyday luxuries, from food and wine to culture and the arts, are sanctified Italian rituals — simple pleasures that qualify as special occasions. It is still arguable where the tastiest of these simple pleasures can be found. Not a mean feat in a country celebrated for its enviable lifestyle.
I’m happy to hang my geographical hat on the Emilia Romagna region — a northern province known for its medieval cities, rich gastronomy, and unstudied elegance.
