In Italy, kids are encouraged to be part of every social occasion that revolves around food - it's not about dividing the kids from the adults, giving them separate meals or putting them to bed early. The kids are part of the social activity of everyday life and they are encouraged to eat, smell, touch and experience new tastes day in day out.

Rome Will Steal Your Heart, Not Your Bag

Each city you visit is different and, having spoken about travelling with various friends and acquaintances, I realised that the beauty of any place is completely subjective to its visitors' opinion. To me, however, despite a bit of a bad reputation, Rome will always be the most beautiful city in the world.

James Newell | Posted 05.12.2016 | UK Politics
James Newell

Suggestions that the vote has been an "anti-establishment, populist revolt" are too simplistic... Who was the establishment figure? Certainly not Renzi: he sought to sell his proposed reforms as part of a campaign to sweep away vested interests. His appeals - to reduce the powers of the Senate, to reduce the costs of politics, to cut the number of parliamentarians - were all couched in classic populist terms.

Why The Haitian Hurricane Barely Graced Your Newsfeeds: Bad Timing Or Do We Simply Not Care?

This remains a recurrent problem for Europe. We'll undoubtedly see this combination of bad timing, aid fatigue and an empathy gap rear its ugly head the next time disaster strikes in the developing world. The age-old blame game between journalists and readers cannot continue in this vein and Europeans must proactively step outside of the bubble. If not, we risk losing our sense of humanity altogether.
