viva l’italia

When we decided to devote our latest issue to Italy, we knew we wanted to go beyond the country itself and explore the lasting impact of Italian culture around the world. Italy was the birthplace of the Roman Empire, gave rise to the Renaissance, and today boasts the largest number of unesco World Heritage sites in Europe. Not to mention some seriously good gelato. But you don’t necessarily need to travel to Italy to experience its culture. From New York to São Paulo, the Italian diaspora has enriched almost every corner of the world. My own life ref lects this—my grandfather came to the United States from Italy, and my mother grew up in a close-knit Italian community in upstate New York. It’s a celebrated culture for a reason: Italians have…

a day in the life

The Party Starter SILVIE LOTO Resident DJ, Goa Club ROME “I THINK I always loved the persona of the DJ as much as I loved the music. I started going to Tenax Club in Florence early—I had older friends that were going. I was really fascinated by what a DJ could do. Tenax is bigger and brighter, but Goa [where I play now] is really intimate. I think that’s what makes the sound different. You want to play something that is more underground. It’s a space that makes you want to play darker music. Goa has been a temple of music for many years. I remember my first set as a resident there, nine years ago, very well. I was coming from Milan. I was really stressed, because there, the music was something people really…

orzo

SOME MORNINGS I GOT up with my first alarm, took the early bus, and made it to Liceo Linguistico Giovanni Pascoli, the high school in Florence where I spent my sophomore year, 10, even 20 minutes early. There was a café next door, and I’d get a cappuccino and a brioche alla cioccolata. I might read for a few minutes as I stood at the counter: maybe my already heavily underlined copy of Mrs. Dalloway, maybe 100 colpi di spazzola prima di andare a dormire, that season’s must-read autobiographical novel about, what else, a middle-class teenage girl’s sexual adventures. Those mornings I felt like an adult. Other mornings I woke up feeling like what I was: a 15-year-old living with her grandparents in a country that was almost, and also not…

the postprandial nap

THE YEAR I LIVED IN Florence, I went to high school Monday to Saturday, six days a week. For me, at first, torture; for my classmates, a typical schedule, a typical orario. At least when I got home, between 1 and 2 p.m., my grandmother had lunch waiting: not the full Italian—primo, secondo, contorno, dolce—but a respectable half: chicken and potatoes, a salad, gelato. And after gelato, a nap. The hours you’re banking at school on Saturday, this is how they’re dispersed, in 45-minute segments throughout the week. America offers the concentrated excess of the two-day debauch; Italy prefers the repeated, quotidian luxury of a postprandial pisolino. It’s said that one can’t conceive of what one’s language doesn’t describe. It’s true that the English word week, to an American high school student, does…
