Mille Miglia – Stirling Moss

I’ve been taking photo’s of the 2017 and the 2018 Mille Miglia editions without publishing anything yet. As an intro to what I will publish the story of Stirling Moss with some mercedes participants. In 1955 Moss won Italy’s thousand-mile Mille Miglia road race, an achievement Doug Nye described as the “most iconic single day’s drive in motor racing history.” Motor Trend headlined it as “The Most Epic Drive. Ever.” Moss, then 25 years old, drove one of four factory-entered Mercedes-B...

5 Tips for a Smooth Transition to Expat Life

When planning the move from homeland to foreign country, we generally focus on the positive – the experiences we’ll have, the great people we’ll meet, and the exciting new foods we’ll try. But becoming an expat – even a temporary one – isn’t without its hardships, and many people find that much of their time abroad is initially spent coping with the many challenges of immersing oneself in a foreign culture. Even if you’re planning an extended stay outside of your home country, you don’t want to ...

Designer Outlets in Italy

While I revel in writing about Renaissance art, medieval villages, and Ancient Rome on this site, I know that one reason visitors come to Italofile is for information about shopping — in particular, outlet shopping. This post is based on Corriere della Sera’s list of the fashion outlets, all of which are located in northern Italy, as well as in Italian-speaking Switzerland. I have listed those outlets below and added others in Lazio (i.e., outside of Rome) and elsewhere in central and southern...

This Week in Photography Books: Alice Garrett-Jones

  I’ve lived through three seasons in the last ten days, and it’s making me crazy. It was 80+ degrees here in Taos until October 1st, when fall arrived in earnest, with yellow trees and cooler days. (Nothing too bad, but definitely not summer.) Then we drove into Colorado at the beginning of this week, and some freezing rainstorms blew in at 7000 feet, where we were staying. It was the worst of cold-wet-nasty-late-autumn for sure. It snowed at the higher elevations, so on Tuesday, we drove over ...

Pope Accepts Resignation Of Cardinal Wuerl Amid Sexual Abuse Cover Up

VATICAN CITY (AP) — Pope Francis has accepted the resignation of Washington Cardinal Donald Wuerl after he became entangled in two major sexual abuse and cover-up scandals and lost the support of many in his flock. Wuerl, who turns 78 in November, becomes the most prominent head to roll in the scandal roiling the Catholic Church after his predecessor as Washington archbishop, Theodore McCarrick, was forced to resign as cardinal over allegations he sexually abused at least two minors and adult...

Ping Pong House: A Playful but Serene 19th-Century House in Rome, Transformed

The studio, a collaboration between Italian architects Vincenzo Tattolo and Martino Fraschetti, started in 2007 and is based in Rome, and their creations feel both serene and unexpected, sophisticated and playful. So much so that it was difficult to choose which of the firm’s projects to feature as their debut on Remodelista. But Martino’s o...

Depression in the game Michael Carrick has opened up about how football can impact a player’s mental health. He noted that during his playing career, he struggled. Carrick said that the World Cup with England was the worst time for him. He noted that when a footballer feels like they shouldn’t be playing, it is hard for them. He added that he spoke to his wife and said he wanted to leave and come home. “Depression over a game of football sounds extreme, doesn’t it?” “But I genuinely felt in a ...

The Holy Legacy of Pope Paul VI

“Am I Hamlet or Don Quixote?” Pope Paul VI once asked that question about himself, and whatever his answer might have been, most people would say he was more than a little of both. His hesitation in making difficult choices, arising from acute sensitivity, reflected the indecisiveness of Shakespeare’s Prince of Denmark. At the same time, his dedication to pursuing lofty but hard to reach goals in the face of nearly insurmountable obstacles shared more than a little in common with Cervantes’s sup...

Pope visit to North Korea feasible if well prepared, South Korean bishop says

The bishop, Lazarus You Heung-sik of Daejeon, spoke ahead of a meeting next week in the Vatican between Francis and South Korean President Moon Jae-in, who will be carrying an invitation from North Korean leader Kim Jong Un to visit Pyongyang. "If the pope goes there, it will be a gigantic step, a qualitative step for the Korean peninsula, for its pacification," said You, who was in Rome for a meeting of bishops from around the world known as a synod. "North Korea could enter the world communi...

European capitals ranked by cost

Europe used to be cheap. Like dirt cheap. Ask your parents about their 1960s backpacking adventures across post-World War II Europe and they’ll tell stories of 10-cent hostels, five-cent beers, and the best pizza you ever had for a quarter. Like a lot of your parents’ stories, they’re highly exaggerated, but they’re also a far cry from the $7 pints and $200-a-night hotels you find in big Euro capitals now. That’s not to say the entire continent is a bank-breaker, though. Look hard enough and ...

The Power of Contemplative Prayer

Contemplative prayer has immense power against all kinds of evil. This silent movement of the heart unveils self-contradictions and rash judgments that threaten one’s own integrity and, at the same time, this vulnerability to God is healing balm for the integrity of others. This deep stillness of spirit allows God to establish one’s whole being in His very Presence so deeply that one cannot remotely guess how profoundly hidden one’s life has become. At the same time, in this hiddenness, li...

How to Approach Our Priests About the Scandals

One of the good things coming out of the evil that is the current sex abuse crisis in the Church is the call for a closer relationship between the laity and the clergy. The days of placing priests on pedestals passed with the first sex abuses crisis 17 years ago. This is a good thing because it allows us to get to work in cooperating with God’s plan for cleansing and renewing His Bride, the Church. Artificial barriers that have been put in place in the past, especially due clericalism, are break...

How can California shrug off crises the way that Rome does?

By Joe Mathews How will California survive the end of America’s empire? The question might seem hypothetical, but I found it inescapable last week in Rome, where I ran a global forum on the future of direct democracy. Our forum’s mission was hopeful: Hundreds of participants, from 80-plus countries, discussed how to democratize the world’s democracies. But each morning, I encountered the less-hopeful remains of fallen empires. To reach Rome’s city hall, the conference site, I had to walk up Capi...
