Teatro Alla Scala is one of the most iconic cultural destinations in Milano, widely recognized as one of the world's most prestigious operas and ballet theatres. ⁠
⁠
Every year, since 1951, the season kicks-off on December 7, the feast day of Milan's patron saint, Saint Ambrose. The premiere is a coltISSIMO occasion and a must-go destination!⁠

‘CORNA: A protective gesture to ward off a curse or the evil eye.  The index and little fingers of the hand jab downwards, as though to ban the evil into the earth.’ Get the tee for an added shield and learn more Italian gesticulations in Munari’s Supplement to the Italian dictionary.  Both on ISSIMO!⁠

The holiday season is approaching, and there's no better time than the present for board games! Play a Maserati-driving road-tripper in our ISSIMO redesign of the classic Monopoly, which substitutes a dreamy Italian jaunt for a capitalist competition. In lieu of Boardwalks and B.&O. Railroads, there is a tastemaker’s roster of wineries, trattorias and heritage artisans to land and linger on. Available in the link in bio.⁠

Food is central to Italian culture, and with the holidays quickly approaching, the pressure to cook a great meal is on!  To help you decide what to serve your family and guests this season, we suggest you flip through the classic ‘Science In The Kitchen and The Art Of Eating Well’ by Pellegrino Artusi. This book has come to be recognized as the most significant Italian cookbook of modern times and is an essential addition to your ColtISSIMO bookshelf.⁠

Perugia, known for the defensive walls around its historic center, is an artistic hub of undeniable importance thanks to the number and magnificence of its monuments, churches, buildings and culture. If you’re planning a trip to this stunning Italian city, make sure to stop at Studio Moretti Caselli, master glass painters where, in the shadow of the Etruscan walls, preserve and hand down ancient traditions.⁠

The ‘smell of old churches’ is a scent that is as much a part of Rome’s charm as the city’s architecture, restaurants and ruins. @essenzialmentelaura_it  has captured this glorious aroma and bottled it up for a sensorial experience that includes visions of ancient paintings, relics and flickering candle flames reflected on stained glass. It smells as poetic as it sounds. ⁠
