Today’s Italian singers

Today’s Italian singers grew up in a time when opera began to recede from the national conversation but, nonetheless, they were able to see and hear some real giants. To name but a few who are still with us and, in some cases, teaching: Carlo Bergonzi, Fiorenza Cossotto, Mirella FreniKatia Ricciarelli, and Renata Scotto. All of them combined superb training, an innate sense of musical and linguistic phrasing, and a stage personality.

Red (and Italian) passion

December in 2011 Campari Calendar

Let’s start thinking about a new calendar to accompany our days for the entire 2011. What’s new around?

Not only beautiful women: for the first time a man (and what a man!) appears on stylish Campari Calendar by photographer Michael Comte.

Benicio Del Toro (in Ermenegildo Zegna clothing) is the guest star in 2011 edition of this beautiful opera in a movie style, that treats images as the pieces of a puzzle, and as the best thriller is made gradually, month after month.

But men will not be disappointed as Salma Hayek, Eva Mendes, Jessica Alba and Olga Kurylenko will appear in amazing photographs.

Adventure, intrigue, and a beautiful woman to carry to safety: “The red affair” is released in a limited edition of  9,999 copies.
See more on Campari website.

PS: at Bellerive we all love it! and that’s for Campari, Benicio and Italian Style.
