Stunningly captured in a year of glossy, richly detailed contemporary and vintage photographs, ITALY is a yearlong tribute to a country that engages all the senses. Unwind along the powdery sand and turquoise waters of Sardinia’s enticing beaches. Take in history at Florence’s Uffizi Gallery, home to the world’s finest collection of Renaissance masterworks. Feel the warmth of the sunlight streaming through the vaulted ceilings of Saint Peter’s Basilica, illuminating its frescoes. Then there’s that mouthwatering Italian cuisine: cheeses, salumi, and Roman artichokes braised in wine. It’s the gift of pure escape to a place of pure romance.
