The New Made In Italy

The MSC Flagship Poesia was the venue for an Italian fete Saturday called "Italian Creativity On Board." I went with my pal Cindy Bigras a fellow GoNOMAD writer. She was speaking about Sardinia on behalf of the Italian Tourist board. I was basically working the crowd (largely Italian speaking), eating, drinking and being enticed once again to go to Italy. This time Piedmont was calling, the slopes in particular...

Luncheon was followed by a gorgeously lush fashion show by the acclaimed Italian designer Raffaella Curiel. Although she's been selling her work through Bergdorf's since 1965, this was her first American fashion show. It was divine.

Heading up town via orange Mini Cooper convertible to drinks on the rooftop of the Gansevoort was another welcome, "I love New York" moment. The Italians; they do know how to have a good time.

When you come in Italy... auff, i dont speak english
Allora: quando vieni in Italia non mancare di fare un salto in Abruzzo, che è la più bella regione del Paese almeno dal punto di vista naturalistico, nonché la regione di cui sei originaria anche tu.
Sardegna is ZERO!
Abruzzo (your country) is NUBER ONE! very fashion!!!
