Welcome back to our readers after the August holiday. We'll be making a few changes to Italyupdate, which will now be known as www.italyupdate.it, in order to give a fuller picture of the lesser known aspects of this multi-faceted and fascinating world that is ITALY.

From time to time, we shall be focussing on certain areas that we feel our readers would like to know better, with longer and more informative articles. In addition to the regional gastronomic specialities that we already highlight, we also plan to explore local Italian hand crafts and products that are still produced in the traditional way, and not on an industrial scale.

We hope you will enjoy our new initiatives,

Best wishes,

the editorial staff of our new www.italyupdate.it
