Inside the Mezquita in Cordoba, with its 800-odd columns: a church that was once a mosque.

Three writers go searching for echoes of a vanished culture — or a resurrected one.

– SpainIn the country’s churches and streets, the remnants of eight centuries of Islamic rule are hiding in plain sight.

– Singapore: Cuisine is one of the few ways to define Peranakan culture, a hard-to-pin-down blend of ethnic and racial identities.

– TajikistanWhile the nation’s history is being hidden behind glimmering new facades, its artisans hold on to tradition with quiet determination.

EVERYONE SPEAKS ENGLISH

Or Do They?

France and the French can remain globally relevant only in English. Or so says British journalist Simon Kuper in one of a series of articles published recently by Le Monde. According to him, French is losing its utility, while English reigns supreme.

Car, Scooter, Electric Scooter And Bike Sharing In Rome

According to some, all roads lead to Rome. But you may have noticed Rome’s roads are far from eternal (and in serious need of a revamp), reason to why romans often chuckle when they hear the phrase and comment on how the current state of the roads lead more like nowhere rather than Rome.

The Florentine July/August 2022 

Love, Spritz + Gelato

My forearms are sticking to the desk as I type this month’s letter. It’s an irksome feeling that’s offset by last night’s joy of dancing wildly at a wedding and an afternoon dip in a kind friend’s swimming pool. Summer in Florence is an intoxicating mix of sweat, fun and gelato. While many of us escape to our countries of origin for as long as we can, there’s something undeniably alluring about these sun-streaked months in Tuscany. Just think back to movies such as Stealing Beauty and Under the Tuscan Sun before fast forwarding to recent Netflix films Toscana and Love & Gelato. Stereotypes aside—and there are far too many to mention in these productions (Netflix, we’re here if you fancy delving deeper into our city and region!)—summer in Florence never stops working its inexplicable magic. Yes, the wall of heat and buzz of mosquitoes may be draining during the day, but the night brings boundless pleasures, from movie nights by the Uffizi to exhibitions at just-reopened Forte di Belvedere, refreshing beers beside the Arno and brilliantly oddball cultural moments such as a wheat threshing festival in the hills (find out more about that gem on page 16).
