  • It wouldn’t seem like Easter in Italy without lamb on the dinner table. But lamb is actually the preferred meat not only for Easter meal but throughout the Summer. Italians enjoy lamb braised, stewed, grilled or roasted. Roast leg of lamb is a classic. Serve it with seasonal vegetables such as artichokes or fresh green peas. Italians cook lamb well done, but more mature American lamb tastes best when medium-rare. Be sure to allow time for the meat to rest after roasting it so it remains juicy.

    More than ever before, Italy is a summer festival, with programs on offer from Sicily to the Val d'Aosta, from the Maremma to the Alta Irpinia. Topics range from communications to creativity, to how humanism can confront the terrible wave of terrorism.
