    • @Jamie Oliver la pizza Non si fa così perché tu hai messo tanto lievito lo hai fatto lievitare poco e non hai fatto a raggiungere la Magna glutinica quindi quello lì sarebbe cibo apposta per animali

    • ​@Juri Degermeni Ma che esagerazione. Ci sono parecchie mode in cui si fa la pizza, secondo me la pizza che ha fatto lui era Italiano. Non si deve esagerare cosi tanto.

  • 1972, walking in my then boyfriend’s town do Sommacampagna, in the Province of Verona, and we turned around to look behind us, and there was his entire family, the Nonni, the parents, the cousins and all the children. I definitely felt like I’d seen this scenario before in The Godfather! I began humming The song and the boyfriend became my fiancée and my husband of 47 years! Viva Italia!
