Well almost everything is inspiring!
Everything in Italy is inspiring from the art to the food to the history and the countryside. We wanted to share a few of our most recent inspirations from a visit to the Vatican City and places around Rome.
Modigliani’s latest team member!
Home sweet away from home. Hotel Mozart on Via del Greci, a street with
flowers for sale on the corner and opera being sung from above the piano
shop. If you open your windows and swing the shutters out, you can hear
the music and the sounds of Rome. Only one more day, stay tuned!
After the train ride, subway and a few flights of stairs, a beautiful
reward! Piazza Spagna at night. And just across the cobblestone piazza and
down a few blocks……
Here is the car I spent the day hiding my eyes in. The red bag is mine. It
is so large because it now contains products that my wonderful customers
had to have quickly. Stay tuned for it’s next stop. You will be jealous!
However, it’s final stop is the airport where I can promise it will be at

Children are a wonderful addition to any day but after hours in a car and
many meetings with many decisions perhaps this little guy, Franco puts into

truck or the soccer ball?
Finally, after an incredible meal, found by chance three blocks from my
hotel, I had to share in case you travel to Florence. This is Il Profeta,
founded 33 years ago by Claudio and Martina. After hearing my order,
Claudio personally offered his suggestions which I took. If you go there,
they are gluten free if needed and you must have Bonta del Profeta, Heaven
at Profeta and it was! Located at Via Maso Finiguerra and Borgo Ognissanti
in Florence, this photo is Claudio and our waiter Martino. Stay tuned!
As the sun set near Ponte Vecchio, the streets were still full with
celebration of a beautiful day.
As I wandered back to dinner I couldn’t resist this street painter
mirroring the true masters
