🍉 A list of links for your August dolce far niente
Buon Ferragosto from the island of San Erasmo.
It’s that time of year in Italy when your day is best spent near the water or even better, on a boat. (I am not a mountain girl) I am spending the day with pals on an island in the lagoon. I am wishing I had been more organized and made this. I am bringing salami from Tuscany, a camembert from France and Bussolai di Pellestrina from, you might have guessed, Pellestrina.
I made you a Summer reading/watching/listening list that evokes summer, the season the Italians do so well. There is a podcast about surfing and plenty of music to drink your evening aperitivo to. My book recommendations include a history of beach culture and a Sicily travelogue. I hope no matter where you are in the world that you can take a few moments to embrace the idle essence of Italy in mid-August.
