Pizza, Pasta e Basta: an Italian in northern Spain

Logroño, capital city of the production of the famous Spanish wine Rioja and from 2012 also culinary capital of the country. In this region of Northern Spain, food is a serious matter: think of the pinchos, the tapas served on a piece of crunchy bread washed down with the best local wines. What better place to open an Italian restaurant?
Ferdinando Battista, from Naples but “adopted” by Spain since 1990, has chosen Logroño to open its Trattoria Pizza, Pasta e Basta in the heart of the old town. His dream: to spread the love for Italian flavours.
We’ve decided to ask him a few questions to discover a little more about it…

“Valmalenco Alpina”: a child’s dream becomes true on top of the world mountains

VALMALENCO ALPINA was born in the heart of the Lombard Alps. This reality stands on an essential and unavoidable love for mountains, which is necessary to be a good mountain guide, as the society’s founde Ivan Pegorari tells us.

The unquestionable prerequisite of Ivan’s job is aiming to transmit passion. “Anyone is a unique person and is able to give something special to the others”: the opportunity that this Alpine guide seeks to offer to those who choose him as their guide is that of catching the beauty of a white and rock world.
Since 2005 “Valmalenco Alpina” makes this dream real by arranging different activities, from ice-climbing to ciaspolata (long excursions requiring particular snow shoes called “ciaspole”).
