FEELING INSPIRED

I open my eyes in the middle of the night. Out of habit I do my “night tour”, that is what I have been doing for more than 8 years: I make sure that my children are all sleeping well and not going to set off the usual alarm which wakes everybody up, not to […]

MY DREAM HOUSE

Today I am having dinner in a wonderful villa. I perceive the sea gradually hiding in the twilight. I look around and I realize that all villas in Porto Cervo have something in common, despite their individual peculiarities. They have a unique style, but they also followed the different fashion trends during the years. My […]

WHO IS TO BLAME?

I allow everything to Italian VIPs visiting Porto Cervo. I allow luxury, astonishing villas, yachts, a betrayal at the Maldives, crazy parties, suites and even 3 babysitters per child. I allow practically everything. But my place of honor taken by Elenoire Casalegno at the “Chi summer tour” no. I can’t stand this. Since I was […]

THE BEST OF PORTO CERVO

In my life, between dream and reality, there is always a gap between what I would like to do and what I eventually achieve. I could draw up an endless list: nights suspended and never resumed, breakfasts left in the middle, pilates classes given in to laziness, vegan diets with hamburgers and chips, a tight […]

THE PRINCE’S BEACH. AWAKENING OF THE SENSES

When I think of the “article” I have in mind, first of all I go down memory lane for inspiration. I close my eyes and imagine. Imagine. Imagine. Today silence permeates my house, an uncommon atmosphere that helps my concentration. Or actually, it should. The Prince’s beach. Only few weeks have passed since my last […]

SHOPPING IN PORTO CERVO

“Mum, why are you taking all your credit cards if you are just play-acting?” Lorenzo, 8 years old. Profession: Jiminy Cricket “Yes mum, explain why!” Adds Matteo, actually 40, watching my array of credit cards, debit cards, and loyalty cards of every kind with ill-concealed apprehension. “Because even if you are just play-acting, things have […]

LA CELVIA BEACH AND THE THOUSAND COLOURS OF THE SEA

Today I was watching Lorenzo flipping quickly through photos on the IPad. Alas… I am becoming like those mothers who start every sentence with “When I was young….” I hold my tongue, I watch him “one, two, three…” but he carries on swiping through, absent-mindedly. Finally…. “When I was young, leafing through a photo album […]

SAN PANTALEO

Today it was hard. The welcome committee showed up at 5 am. Really, it is incredible how they can fall asleep again one above the other. They must have a secret button somewhere, just like the one they push right in the moment when I find a comfortable position. To wake me up. As a […]

I AM GOING TO CALL IT “SARDINIA BLUES”

No way. As soon as you arrive in Sardinia, its unmistakable scent envelops you. Helicrisum and juniper, together with Mediterranean scrub, are so pungent that you almost stop breathing for fear of losing that sensation.I still remember my spring days in Milan, when I found myself deprived of my habits and I saw the sea […]
