Another insider's secret we are about to reveal...
You might not know this, but in a few decades Italy has become an increasingly interesting player on the world beer scene.
Next time you're in Italy why not skip the industrial beers produced by big corporations and try one of these local artisan beers instead?
They are not only healthier and tastier, but they also tell a story...
In the following article we will tell you everything you need to know about Italian craft beers. You'll also get a few tips for tasting craft beers and an introduction to an interesting selection of them.

Nardò, the big-hearted, Sleeping Beauty (Salento, Puglia)
Today we take you for a walk in the ancient borgo of Nardò. The town lies completely off the tourist trail, in the Salento part of Puglia, and has some surprising architectural and historic facts in store!

Good morning to you all lovely peeps!
We're just back from a road trip in Puglia and Basilicata! More about it soon on our website http://slowitaly.yourguidetoitaly.com.
But, in the mean-time we wanted to share our NEW Youtube channel https://bit.ly/2OWPBnF and first EVER video with you! The video we made is about one of the longest and fastest ziplines in the world, and, guess what, it's in Basilicata, more precisely connecting the two villages of Castelmezzano and Pietrapertosa. The video starts with a few photos of the hike to the starting point of the zipline and then you'll see a footage of the full flight (recorded by my son Nico, he's the one in the first pic too), almost as if you did it yourself. ;-)
Remember to subscribe to our channel https://bit.ly/2OWPBnF if you want to be among the first to know as soon as we publish a new video.

I recently had the honor to meet and interview Armando Marinelli, whose family founded the world's oldest continuously family-owned manufacturing company about 1,000 years ago!. Truly an inspiring family and business story!
…closely related to the history of a city, a people and a region. #agnone #molise #italia #italy #bells #bellfoundry #bronzecasting #tradition #ancientcrafts

Today is Santa Lucia's day. While the modern day celebration of Santa Lucia (Saint Lucy’s Day) on December 13 is generally associated with Sweden and Norway, it is also observed in some parts of Italy, where it is actually a very ancient tradition dating back to 1337.
Read more about why and where Santa Lucia is celebrated in Italy:
