Rebecca as Guest rather than Hostess: Contemporary Art in Umbria

Certain topics seem inherently polarizing. Country-western music, for example. Home schooling. Mayonnaise on french fries. And, of course, contemporary art.

Buried Treasure: Truffle Hunting in Umbria

Happy dogs. Autumn woods. Amazing food. What could go wrong?

The Most Beautiful Villages of Umbria: Citerna

Much like an aging footballer’s wife, Citerna is “having some work done.” But she’ll be hot come 2011.

Rebecca as Guest rather than Hostess: Eurochocolate and Chocolate in Umbria in Italy Magazine

An article all about chocolate in Umbria. The research was harrowing, of course. I do it so you don’t have to.

The Uber-Sagra: La Festa della Cipolla (Cannara)

If I only had one summer left to live and had to choose a single last sagra to attend, (Yes, I realize it’s an unlikely scenario. Humor me.) I would choose Cannara’s over-the-top-out-of-control-mother-of-all-sagras Festa della Cipolla at the beginning of September. Hands down.

Rebecca as Guest rather than Hostess: Grape Harvest and Wineries in Umbria/Olive Harvest and Oil Mills in Umbria on’s GoItaly

Stop by Go Italy’s blog to see some of my suggestions for planning a visit to Umbria in the autumn when the grape and olive harvests are in full swing.

Rebecca as Guest rather than Hostess: Assisi on Bleeding Espresso

What an honor to be invited by Michelle Fabio of the wonderful Bleeding Espresso blog to participate in August’s Gita Italiana trip around Italy.

Rebecca as Guest rather than Hostess: All About Umbria on Casa Dolcetto

I’m so pleased to be a guest blogger this week at Casa Dolcetto’s wonderful Italian Reflections blog!

Amazing Grace: La Madonna del Bagno

There are places on earth that somehow get to you, and sometimes it’s not easy to put your finger on exactly why. The tiny church of La Madonna del Bagno near Deruta is one of those places for me. I am charmed and moved every time I have the opportunity to visit, though at first glance you, too, may be scratching your head.
