From the Publisher

"An amazing resource to anyone traveling to the area. I highly recommend using this book as a reference tool." -- S. Johnson, Amazon reviewer

Italy's northernmost zone, the Veneto includes Padua, Verona, Vicenza, plus Venice itself, which once ruled the area. Some 5,000 Renaissance villas still stand, many by Palladio. A food- and wine-lover's paradise, it's also the most artistically rich region in Italy, and the most romantic, with the art of Giotto and Mantegna in Padua, the Roman ruins in Verona, the canals and palaces in Venice itself. Bellini, Tintoretto, Veronese and Titian worked here. Experience their art and be part of their world, with the insights of an insider. Every detail is here about the foods, the sights, the best places to stay and eat.

Print edition is 400 pages.

"Ideas, my dear, are a dime a dozen. Execution is not. Execution is the thing—it is rare and it is revered. The idea is not. There are many ideas and far fewer successful executions.”  So sayeth the wise and bloviating, some would call seasoned CEO, speaking in a half-baked English accent one morning over salty eggs and exceedingly strong conference coffee.  First things first: Do not call me “dear” or “kiddo” or anything other than my name—especially over salty eggs. It makes me cranky. And yet, this man annoyed me more with his perceptions about ideas. Those kept me up longer than the shitty

05 An Underground Art Crawl

1 Start your stroll with one of the best gelatos in the city at Gelato Davvero (get there early to avoid the lines) (Praça São Paulo 1), then head along the Praça São Paulo to GIVLOWE (Praça São Paulo 13–15), a café and gallery that walks the line of visual overload. The walls are crowded with art—like intricate collages from artist Burry Buermans—and sculptures are nestled between plants and around mismatched furniture, including a hammock. 2 Next, walk for a few minutes to VERSO BRANCO (Rua da Boavista 132–134), a small, split-level décor shop, atelier, and gallery space with an emphasis on

Designer Matteo Cibic Specializes in Surprises

When I meet Matteo Cibic on a gloomy spring morning at Rossana Orlandi, an internationally respected, independent design showroom in central Milan, he is troubled. Unknown to me, my editor had told him I was a fan of “VasoNaso”: a yearlong project where the 33-year-old Italian industrial designer made a different ceramic vase every day for a year, each with its own, unique nose-like protrusion. Thinking it might make for a good photograph to go with our interview, Cibic tells me he’d tried to make a vase modeled on a photo of my profile—but it cracked in the kiln. Instead of presenting me with
