My favorite things

I'm Italian, born and raised. It might not surprise you that I'm passionate about product that are made in my home country Italy.


Truffle Therapy Face Gommage

The best I have ever tried

I think that the Truffle Gommage by Skin & Co Roma is the best I have ever tried.  I love the way it feels and the way it leaves the skin clean and soft, radiant. I tried so many. Now I need to try the whole collection of Skin & Co Roma.

In the United States, you can find this at the Mozzafiato store. Price $33.00

I highly recommend checking out this company and its website. They have curated a wonderful collection of beauty products, for her, for him, and your home. Until recently you would find these kinds of products only in luxury hotels. But since last year Mozzafiato made them available in the United States. They have excellent service.




Alessi Pulicina Coffeemaker

One of the best espresso makers I ever had

A revolutionary moka that combines the technology developed by illycaffè and the design experience of Alessi. Designed by Michele de Lucchi, Pulcina encapsulates a small but substantial design innovation that stops dispensing the drink at the right time before the coffee gets a bitter aftertaste. This helps to enhance the full and rich aroma of this drink. The spout, which recalls a chick's beak (hence the name of the coffee maker) allows it to perfectly stop the drop.

Available as 1-cup, 3-cups, or 6-cups. Price starting at $82.00




Isola d'Elba Home Diffuser

A fresh scent in my whole home

Although this brand was founded on the island of Elba, I first found it when I stayed at a hotel in Florence (Firenze).

In the United States you can find this at the Mozzafiato store. Price $89.00


Matilde Vicenzi Vanilla Cream puff pastries

I love to give those when I have guests

With their crispness and delicate flavor, the puff pastries are the symbol of Matilde Vicenzi’s fine Italian pastry tradition. Made with real homemade butter, the dough is repeatedly folded and rolled to reach pastry perfection!

In the United States you can find these at Amazon. Price for pack of three $14.99
