After a year of separation, a beautiful afternoon with Renzo and Millie Piano in their home and studio high on the hills of Genoa overlooking the Mediterranean.

Over a long delicious lunch of zuppa di verdura, vitello tonnato, roasted Piemontese red and yellow peppers and, to finish, baci di dama, we spoke about life, friendship, architecture, family and memories.

A beautiful afternoon indeed.

Roman Zucchini Soup
With zucchini flowers, herbs, parmesan and a dash of cream.

Vitello Tonnato
We will send you the finely sliced roast veal, tuna mayonnaise, capers and anchovies. Just add a sprinkle of fresh herbs—parsley, marjoram or oregano—and a wedge of lemon.

Piedmontese Stuffed Peppers
Slowly roasted with Datterini tomatoes, capers, olives and basil.

Braised Italian Spinach

Baci di Dama
Piemontese hazelnut and dark chocolate biscuits.
