A STORY IN COLOR

All About Italy (USA) - - Editorial -

It is al­ways dif­fi­cult to en­case Italy in the pages of this mag­a­zine. It is dif­fi­cult be­cause each edi­tion in­volves choos­ing be­tween the hun­dreds of sto­ries that should be told. To help us in this tough se­lec­tion, here’s a vir­tual tour to dis­cover the most au­then­tic Italy, which starts with the col­ors of its flag: green, white, red. Two are rep­re­sented in this is­sue by one of the re­gions that has al­ways been a jewel of Ital­ian her­itage, but which only re­cently seems to have been the sub­ject of ma­jor and well de­served at­ten­tion: Calabria, a place that ac­tu­ally ex­presses a kaleidoscope of ex­pe­ri­ences. Among other things, we tell you about the sym­bolic color of the na­ture there, that bril­liant green that cov­ers the vast moun­tain area of the Sila in sum­mer, a des­ti­na­tion par­tic­u­larly ap­pre­ci­ated for its woods and mixed forests of conifers and de­cid­u­ous trees, to­wards darker and more in­tense nu­ances in the veg­e­ta­tion that cloaks Aspromonte. To this tan­gi­ble and in­es­timable her­itage of beauty and na­ture, we wanted to bring in another sym­bolic color of Calabria, suc­cess­ful at ev­ery meal: that red of its peper­on­cino that strikes the palate, found in many typ­i­cal prepa­ra­tions, most no­tably the sa­lumi spread ’nduja, among the many rea­sons for the good rep­u­ta­tion of this re­gion. So as not to get too dis­ori­en­tated in this lively world, how­ever, we need a bit of light. White, like that of the big screen be­fore the start of a big fea­ture film. We also tell you about the se­crets of the Ital­ian masters who bring movie dreams to life, from clothes to jew­elry, hats and wigs, all the stage props for cin­ema, tele­vi­sion and the­ater. And this is just the be­gin­ning of the story...
