Living la Dolce Vita in your home

Italy stands for summer, sunshine and the good life: Following the motto «dolce far niente», chilling out in a hammock, eating gelato and sunbathing on a famous beach in Rimini is what summer is all about. Here’s how to create your own bit of Italy at home.

Dolci e Cafe

I can’t imagine a day in Italy without strong espresso and delicious ice cream. This is why they qualify for my «dolce vita» routine. Why not get an ice cream maker and create your own favourite ice cream flavours – and enjoy more than once scoop. The classic moka coffee makers spread a wonderful aroma of freshly ground coffee and make you feel like you’re in Milano. Although the Milanese like to take their espresso standing up, take your time and enjoy your coffee on your sofa or balcony with a cornetto.

«Dolce far niente» in Rimini

Umbrellas just as the ones you know from the beaches in Rimini bring about that special holiday feeling. The more colours and stripes, the better.

Italian «Cucina»

On a romantic dinner for two or with the entire family, Italians enjoy pizza and pasta in groups and in hearty portions. They like serving twice as much food as there are guests to make sure people sit and eat together for as long as possible. In line with colourful pesto, tableware with patterns and painting are ideal to complement your Italian dinner.

Italy is also popular with the little ones – many count pizza to their favourite meals. With a push bike that looks like a Vespa and a slice of pizza as a pool float, you and your kids are sure to have loads of fun.
