The “Season’s Greetings” issue of Ambassador is filled with holiday spirit, starting with the lovely Rampini heirloom Christmas ornament on the cover. Look inside to learn about Rampini’s handmade craftwork in Gubbio, Italy, and that medieval town’s colossal mountainside Christmas tree. More good cheer comes with the “Cooking Italian for the Holidays” section presenting six celebrity chefs and their recommended holiday recipes. Also featured is a travel story revisiting the Risorgimento in Torino; a profile of U.S. Solicitor General Don Verrilli; a story about the history of Los Angeles’ Little Italy; an literary analysis of Pietro Di Donato’s Italian American masterpiece “Christ in Concrete”; and a piece that answers the question, “Was Italian food Italian before there was an Italy?” Our regular columnists cover the new Italian film “Corpo Celeste” and the NFL’s Italian American Harbaugh brothers.And don’t miss the chance to voice your opinion in Ambassador’s reader survey which asks “What’s America’s Best Pizza?” (See results in the next issue!)
