Inaugural La Dolce Vita Lunch
Claudia, Lisa e Lambretta !

Il Primo Pranzo della Dolce Vita Club e` stato un grande successo! Spero che sia stata una possibilità per mettersi in contatto con anime affine. Almeno per me e Lisa era un grandissimo piacere !
The Lunch was a chance for lots of “parlare”, “chiacchierare”, “communicare” … Talking, chatting and communicating.
But let’s face it – Italians also do a lot of verbalising with their hands – gesticulating. And who could deny, there are just some moments in life when a word needs a hand gesture to really complete the sentence. When a mere phrase isn’t enough, a finger has to be brought in to finish the job (so to speak)!

 

This week as well as a new phrase, we’d like you to use as many hand gestures as possible 🙂

The phrase for this week comes courtesy of Lili Marlene who has just returned from a wedding in breathtaking Positano.  The phrase is “Tutto aposto”… Literally translated it means “everything is in it’s place or just right”… But often used colloquially to say “you are one hot mamma!”

To to put it in context, Lili Marlene was exiting a bathroom in Roma when the male attendant called out to her.  She stopped in her tracks and immediately thought she hadn’t offered enough money in return for her twinkle.  Instead, the true Roman wanted to offer his appreciation of her womanhood and yelled “Tutto aposto !”  As you can imagine, this phrase must be accompanied by the appropriate hand gesture !

It’s been a wonderful fortnight for Italian cinema with the Lavazza Italian Film Festival… I had a very eventful evening after seeing LOVE IS IN THE AIR – If you ever get a chance to catch this Italian movie, do it! It probably is a classic contemporary Italian romantic comedy… Guy with girl, almost loses girl, lots of sex and gets the girl again!

One movie is still showing – TO ROME WITH LOVE…

La nostra amica scozzese Carina Karen ha scritto “Che piacere è stato quello di incontrare un bel gruppo di signore chic, di classe italiana per la riunione inaugurale del La Dolce Vita Club – conversazione incantevole, il cibo delizioso e il suono squisito della lingua italiana parlata certamente ha ancora creato un piccolo pezzo di La Dolce Vita per me 🙂 – grazie per l’invito e non vedo l’ora alla prossima riunione .. tra l’altro, si è impressionato con il mio post italiano??”  Si, cara Karen – grazie a te e Google Translate!

Enjoy the photos… Stay tuned for the next lunch and the next blog!  Remember if you are living La Dolce Vita, tell us about it… We love to hear of anything Italian.

And follow our La Dolce Vita Club blog!  A presto !
