In Paris we love Italian cooking.  But we love to adapt it in a less traditional way making it minimalist, trendy or personal home made with a touch of “my grand’ma best recipes”. In other way we are very good in creating fusion cooking with the dishes of our Italian neighbours which we’re quite happy to make part of our Parisian heritage. From Tiramisu to spaghetti bolognese to special risotto, not a dishe that we try to adopt & adapt…

Roger Vivier is often remembered for dressing a list of exceptional women. Not only did he design the shoes Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II worn in 1953 on her coronation day, he also crafted acclaimed creations for the greatest personalities of his times: the Duchess of Windsor, Princess Soraya of Iran, Marlene Dietrich, Elizabeth Taylor, Brigitte Bardot and, of course, Catherine Deneuve in “Belle de Jour”, the film in which the iconic heels featuring the silver buckle made their first appearance. Dive with us into this fascinating story…

The mystery of stilettos revealed… Scientists have observed that stiletto heels accentuate the movement of a woman’s hips, while shortening their stride...

Un bellissimo film del 1983, con Gérard Dépardieu e Nastassja Kinski, La lune dans le caniveau, si ispirava all'immagine dell'astro d'argento riflessa nell'acqua che scorre in un cunicolo. Se cercate la traduzione in italiano della parola caniveau, resterete delusi e non ne scoprirete mai il fascino segreto. Ma se vi trovate a Parigi in una di quelle serate con la pioggia che si alterna al sereno, aspettate che le nuvole si dileguino...

Provate ad invitare a cena una vostra amica in visita a Parigi, non importa l'età, né se è bionda o bruna, l'importante è che sappia apprezzare la buona cucina. Scegliete un ristorante dove si mangi veramente alla francese: niente spaghettì boló o sushì e sashimì, ma vera, autentica cucina francese, per esempio Le Procope, nel quartiere Saint Germain-des-Près. È forse il più antico ristorante di Parigi, l'ambiente e gli arredi sono caldi e accoglienti e, fidatevi, si mangia bene senza spendere una fortuna. Fatevi dare un bel tavolo e iniziate offrendo una flûte di champagne alla vostra ospite. Poi prendete l'iniziativa e ordinate per entrambi una soupe à l'oignon gratinée. 

Why are Parisians so often seen sitting on a café terrace with a glass of Perrier and a slice of lemon, or going to the office with a big bottle of spring water sticking out of their bag? And at home, infusions and teas, whether or not for detox, feature prominently!

Se non vi è mai capitata una cosa del genere, non potete sapere ciò che si prova. Sono mesi che faccio la corte a una ragazza molto carina, intelligente, simpatica, elegante e con altre decine di virtù che non starò qui ad elencarvi. Dopo avere rifiutato inviti a cene, pranzi, anteprime cinematografiche, concerti classici, jazz, pop, ecc., l’altro ieri accetta di uscire con me per assistere ad uno spettacolo di pattinaggio artistico sul ghiaccio, una versione un po’ riadattata della celebre favola di Cenerentola.

The Parisian and her handbag…a love story over the centuries. It can be mini, just enough for a phone and a credit card although very often huge, heavy and an annex to our home. We love it. During a well-filled day, it even turns into a set of matryoshkas, the Balenciaga shopping bag housing a Fendi evening bag and, of course, a makeup bag, not forgetting the shoulder bag for things that have to be found quickly…

Tutti gli anni, numerose esposizioni, talvolta di provenienza internazionale, vengono ospitate nei principali musei della capitale: qui di seguito una selezione degli eventi imperdibili della stagione 2018 e una panoramica della stagione 2019. Il successo dell’offerta culturale di Parigi è ormai un dato di fatto…

How can I thank you, all of you who were able to understand the immense grief of the French people after the attacks in Paris, showing us your support and your amazing love of Paris by the countless messages sent.  During these horrible days in January, I was in New York visiting the 9/11 Memorial and new museum devoted to the intolerable attack in 2011.  While my first reaction was sadness, I was gradually comforted by my admiration for these incredible tokens of love and solidarity that arrived from all over the world, often from strangers, distant relatives and from artists who expressed their grief in their works.   My friends from Canada, Rose and Herb come to Paris twice a year for a long three-week stay. Their love affair with Paris has lasted for more than 20 years and the City of Light, continues to fascinate them. The way they talk about it is one of the nicest things I’ve read these past weeks…
