THURSDAY, APRIL 21, 2022 www.italoamericano.org L'Italo-Americano 2 J ust think of it: the blue Gulf of Naples and Mount Vesuvius on the background, Capri's piazzetta, the magic of Positano, hanging as it is on cliff above the sea, the yellow of lemons … and a piping hot pizza Margherita on the table.

W e l l , T h e A m a l f i C o a s t E x p e r i e n c e w i l l b r i n g y o u t o S o r r e n t o , w h e r e t h e song Torna a Surriento was born. In 1961, Elvis Presley cov- ered it, entitling it Surrender and making it a beloved hit in the USA. Then, you'll visit Capri, its piazzetta where the Dolce Vita still lives, and experience the mesmerizing echoes of the Grotta Azzurra. After a free Italian lesson, you'll get to practice in Positano, the pearl of the Amalfi Coast. Posi- tano has been part of the UNESCO Heritage patrimony since 1997 and not by chance! In Amalfi, you'll have lunch in a traditional restaurant and try fresh-scented limoncello and decadent local cakes; then, you'll visit Villa Rufolo, an architectural jewel no to be missed. Then, you'll trek through the Valle delle Ferriere, a place like no other, filled with the inebriating scent of lemons and where pre-glacial flora still survives. At this stage of The Amalfi Coast Experi- ence we'll head to Vietri sul Mare, where you'll probably buy some local pottery, an excellence of our Made in Italy. In Raito you'll probably experience the warmest of kisses, that of the "sole mio," the sun. Its name comes from the Latin ragitus, which means "surrounded by sunbeams." And you wouldn't expect a village standing on the promontory that dominates the Gulf of Salerno to be anything else. Last but not least, The Amalfi Coast Experience will bring y o u t o t h e m o s t m y s t e r i o u s a n d i n c r e d i b l e o f a l l places, Pompeii. All this for just 12 dollars! Of course, the more tickets you'll get, the higher your chance to win this incredible holiday. There are also pack- ages you can buy to increase your chances to win this incred- ible holiday. The second of our winners will enjoy a customized year- long subscription of coffee beans or espresso beans worth $600 from Oakland-based, family-owned roaster Mr. Espresso and the third $300 to spend as they wish! We'll take this opportunity to remind you that, on our marketplace (https://italoamericano.org/shop/) you can find plenty of traditional Italian products from every region and plenty of Made in Italy gifts, from jewelry to fashion items. Don't forget to visit our online store, where you could just find what you need to get the feeling of being back home… or on holiday in Italy.
