New Design: Piazza dei Mercanti, Milano, Italy on Totes, Tops, Mugs, and More from Douglas E. Welch Design and Photography [For Sale]

“Piazza Mercanti[1] (“Merchants Square”) is a central city square of Milan, Italy. It is located between Piazza del Duomo, which marks the centre of the modern city of Milan, and Piazza Cordusio, and

it used to be the heart of the city in the Middle Ages. At the time, the square was larger than it is now (as part of it has later become what is now Via Mercanti, the street located between Palazzo dei Giureconsulti and Palazzo della Ragione) and known as “Piazza del Broletto”, after the “Broletto Nuovo”, the palace that occupied the centre of the square (now on the north side). In the 13th century, there were six entry points to the square, each associated to a specific trade, from sword blacksmiths to hat makers.” — Wikipedia

Recently Purchased: Temple of Castor and Pollux Stickers and More From Douglas E. Welch Design and Photography [For Sale]

I took over 200 photos as we walked around the Valley with our Sicilian relatives. The sun was blazing but we soaked in the history of the site through these remains from antiquity. It is difficult to truly understand that Greek speaking people walked, played, ate and worshiped at this site so many years before. You almost have to remind yourself that this isn’t some movie set made for your entertainment, but rather the survivors of humans long history on the planet. — Douglas

Home School: Archeologists Unearth Ancient Roman Mosaic Under a Vineyard via My Modern Met

Archeologists Unearth Ancient Roman Mosaic Under a Vineyard via My Modern Met

Thanks to Italy’s rich history, if you dig a little bit you’re sure to find something special—even in unexpected places. This was made clear in Verona, where the city has been excavating a privately owned vineyard since the fall. And now, their hard work has paid off as archaeologists have uncovered a pristine mosaic floor dating back to the 1st century CE.

It’s an incredible find in an area that’s long been recognized to house treasures from ancient Rome. In fact, according to local sources, the land was known to sit on top of Roman artifacts since at 19th century. Some mosaics, which are on display in a city museum, were already excavated from the site in the 1960s.

Risotto with Taleggio Cheese (and a Glass of Wine) with Friends via La Cucina Italiana

April 11th, 2020 Comments off
We love risotto and this sounds like an excellent variation to add to our Recipes In Rotation. While the Italians really don’t do macaroni and cheese, this seems a more than worthy substitute. — Douglas
 
You know summer’s over when it’s time to turn back the clock. All you can do is revel in whatever warmth is left and get ready for the arrival of winter. The warmth that never fades, though, comes from the pleasure of cooking for friends. You know those evenings when you’re all together, laughing and telling each other about your latest adventures in front of a good glass of wine? On those evenings there’s no dish better than a risotto. Specifically, a risotto with Taleggio, a rich and creamy cheese, which gives a velvety softness to every dish. It’s a full meal, delicious and satisfying, perfect with a glass of full-bodied but elegant red, like a Pinot Noir or a Barolo.
