28/03/2009 FEARLESS ON THE AMALFI COAST
TRIPPING Driving toward fearlessness When driving in Italy, there is no second-guessing. When you see a sliver of room, gun it. MELANIE CHAMBERS From Saturday's Globe and Mail March 28, 2009 at 12:00 AM EDT Friends warned me against renting a car in Italy. You're taking your life into your own hands, they said. Ignoring all advice, I picked up the car in Naples and drove south to the epicentre of road danger: the Amalfi Coast. Here, a narrow stretch of road hugs the coastline with corners so tight, there are mirrors above to view oncoming traffic. Driving only in first and second gear on the hairpin switchbacks, I made it halfway along that picturesque stretch of coast before the accident. Stuck behind a tourist bus, I got cocky. "I have tons of room to pass this ...Leggi tutto by Positano News

17/05/2008 Refresh Your Spirit: Visit Italy’s Amalfi Coast
The Amalfi Coast -- a strip of craggy rocks and jaw-dropping cliffs extending down Italy between Sorrento and Salerno -- is, during late spring and early summer, an idyllic getaway and spiritual pilgrimage.
People often talk about the culinary and historic beauty of Naples. But between the gypsy pickpockets, overcrowded '70s-style airport and collection of dated luxury hotels that line the seafront, Naples may best be seen through a rear-view mirror. Day 1 -- Sorrento Insiders ...Leggi tutto by Positano News

19/01/2008 Grace and sensibility
Grace and sensibility By Sophy Roberts Waking up and throwing open the windows above the waters of Lake Como remains one of my most powerful memories of Villa Maria Taglioni. I hear the splash of boys from the village of Blevio jumping off a floating pontoon into the cool water. And the ring of bells from the village, its steeple almost concealed by the villa’s rich and tumbling gardens. Then quiet – total quiet. This is a villa without the bustle of an awakening hotel, a view without pool attendants straightening the sun loungers, and a lake without jet-skis and noisy speedboats. Instead, an empty jetty sleeps on the still water beneath me. Not that the experience comes cheap, for I’m staying in one of the finest houses in Italy, which recently became ...Leggi tutto by Positano News

06/01/2008 Garbage Crisis Stirs Protest in Naples
NAPLES, Italy (AP) -- Stinking mounds of garbage piled up on the streets of Naples on Friday and officials around the country blamed organized crime and bureaucratic red tape for the city's refuse crisis. Warry also in Coast of Amalfi , Positano, Ravello, Capri and Sorrento for tourism. Effigies of city officials, suspended from lampposts and trees, reflected the fury of Naples' citizens, who have had to live amid small mountains of their own refuse since Dec. 21, when collectors stopped gathering it because there was nowhere to take it. Residents have resorted to setting trash on fire, raising fears of toxic smoke. ''Garbage is piling up outside our building,'' said Angela Sepe, a Neapolitan walking on the outskirts of the city.

My last supper
As long as chefs have been cooking, they've been asking each other a solemn, yet saucy, question: 'If you were to die tomorrow, what would you want for your last meal on Earth?' Seven chefs set the scene and dish out a recipe for their final feast
