Aria d'Italia

CONTEMPORARY ITALIAN LIFESTYLE

Aria d'Italia is a Tod's project celebrating contemporary Italian lifestyle and its inherent values: talent and passion for quality in every aspect of life, from fine dining to art, from the joy of sharing to cherishing traditions. Through eight key words, a series of personal and professional stories are told; artists, entrepreneurs, craftsmen each in their way representing the essence of the Italian identity. Chapter after chapter, Aria d'Italia becomes an illustrated journey, the feeling of a new generation, brimming with creativity, able to reinvent our country's heritage through entrepreneurial and unconventional artistic ideas.

In September 2022, Aria d'Italia's words and images will come together in a book published in collaboration with Rizzoli International.

CHAPTER ONE

PLEASURE

Culinary delights, friendship, and a passion for a proper feast are integral to the lives of Marco Baldeschi, chef at "Villa Lena" in the heart of Tuscany, as well as Francesco Mondadori and Ludovica Bonini. The pair bring together entrepreneurial ideas and the culture of Mediterranean cuisine on their homestead in Puglia.

CHAPTER TWO

TIMELESS

Timeless and everlasting: a distinct sensitivity towards beauty and tradition has led student Bianca Vanni Calvello Mantegna to create an organic farming project under the Sicilian sun. Equally inspired, Niccolò Rignano and Gemma Richards have converted an abandoned villa in Piedmont into the boutique hotel, "La Foleia".
