Italy and the wonderful spring

It is know the Italian food is seasonal: Certain types of produce grow at only certain times of year, and restaurants that respect the seasons, and the local food culture, will only serve those ingredients then.

On the cultural side, the Dali exhibit, on in Rome this spring Museums in Italy tend to have two major temporary exhibitions per year: one opening in the fall, generally running from September or October until December or January, and one in the spring, running from February or March until May or June.

And on the floral side, across Milan and Florence, Rome and Naples, the trees lining the streets are budding and parks are blooming.

In fact, some gardens in Italy’s major cities only open in the spring.
