Italy Como Area Factory Visit

23 Jun

Sunday in Lake Como. Families, food, piazzas, relaxation before the work week begins tomorrow.
Below are photos of Pomodorino, a lovely restaurant in the medieval city of Como, just steps from the lake front.
Next is the Albergo Del Duca, a charming small hotel with a hopping pizza/ restaurant attached, facing the small and popular piazza Del Duca.
Everyone is out on the street meeting and greeting, strolling and enjoying.
Only bicycles, taxis, residents and service vehicles may drive within the walls of this part of the city. Beautiful brick pavers grace the old streets,

Italy Notebook- The Heartbreak of Globalization

Lake Como, Italy

3 Oct

My bi-yearly trip to the como region, north of Milan is underway. The weather is fantastic and the Italian sensibility even more compelling.
The old city of Como is a medieval delight of winding cobblestone streets dotted with pizzerias, bicycles, shoe and clothing boutiques, piazzas galore, and chic Italian savior faire.

Lake Como

16 May

I am visiting factories in Northern Italy this week. I stay at a small Albergo in the center of the old city, replete with old paving stones, charming archways, little outdoor cafes and bicycles galore. Only taxis and chauffeurs are permitted to drive within the city walls, making this area a stroller’s paradise.
