Godfather's House for Sale



The Staten Island home of the infamous Corleone (Godfather) family is currently up for sale for a mere $2.9 million.  I took my (Italian) mom to the movie the first weekend it premiered in Hollywood as a young student.  We must have seen it 20 times since that date.  Who ever gets tired of the movie?  The fashions and the actors were superb.  As for the house, its' had some remodeling in the kitchen for a contemporary theme.  The Corleone compound address is 110 Longfellow Ave.
See the kitchen...

Shades of Italy

 

I came across a colorful article in Italy Mag featuring the top ten colour shades of Italy from Naples Yellow to Schiaparelli pink, the famous fashion designer I studied in art school.  Naples yellow includes various shades of yellow that artists used in painting.                                                              
See more of earth-rich Sienna, the most widely used pigment of the Master artists; Venetian Red, Celeste Blue and more popular, inspiring colors of Italy here...

George Clooney and his beautiful wife, Amal, married this weekend in Venice.  These photos are from Dailymail.uk.  They spent their wedding at the luxurious Cipriani and Aman Hotels.  Amal's parents paid for the wedding and Cindy Crawford's husband (seen with them on the boat) was best man.

Oranges and Orvieto


Oranges and Orvieto...I love oranges, browns and greens this time of year. Italy is full of the warm seasonal colors in its buildings, monuments, statues and landscape. Upper left: popular Pompeii oranges; Capri clock tower at night; Middle: Villa Margherita, Levanto; Middle right: Positano; Lower left and middle: Pisa, Rome.  See more...
