Summer in the City: Rome

Every year many Romans decide to spend their summer time by the beautiful Tiber river, called Tevere in Italian. It is the perfect choice for those who are unable to escape from the heat of the city. Between July and August in Rome, people go there and have a lot of fun. They can either have a drink in the many cafes, or go to nice restaurants. There are also clubs, most of which are open exclusively for the summer. Summer time in Lungo il Tevere (“along the Tiber”) is absolutely fantastic! Discover more about how to get to this beautiful place, join all the events and festivals that are planned during the summer, and the typical food Romans eat in these occasions by reading the full article.

Italy’s Intriguing Orange Wines 

It was one of those discoveries for Philip Kinsella, Manager of Accounting at Select Italy, which lead you to never forget when and where you made it. As much as everyone at Select Italy loves wine, this was something we never heard of: orange wines, or as the Italian call them, bianchi macerati (macerated whites). Made through a process similar to making red wine, yet classed as whites, these peculiar wines have a flavor all their own. Read the full article for a full description from Philip, including what he discovered after his first sip. 

Spaghetti with Clams and Garlic

Select Italy introduces a perfect dish for the summer in this monthly newsletter. This is a popular plate among Italians due to its simplicity and great taste: spaghetti with clams and garlic. Read the full article to learn more about this delicious recipe and which wine to pair with it.
