#IoCiSono, the new issue of Vanity Fair dedicated to those who are fighting on the front line against coronavirus. All proceeds will be donated to the Papa Giovanni XXIII Hospital in Bergamo.

After publishing a special issue dedicated to Milan and Italy, distributed free of charge in newsstands in Lombardy, Vanity Fair confirms its commitment to wanting to transmit a message of hope, strength, courage and above all gratitude to those who are fighting this global frontline fight in Italy against the Covid-19 virus.

The new issue of the weekly magazine directed by Simone Marchetti, on newsstands for March 25 for two weeks, whose entire proceeds from sales at newsstands will be donated to 'Papa Giovanni XXIII Hospital in Bergamo, one of the most troubled at the moment.

“Bergamo and its hospitals found themselves unwillingly at the center of an unprecedented health earthquake. The test to which the whole territory is subjected is very hard, and the health facilities are our first line. Doctors and nurses are doing the impossible. We must give them all the support they can. Men and means are needed to face a need for treatment that is greater than the current possibilities, even if multiplied since the beginning of the emergency. Thanks therefore to Vanity Fair and the Condé Nast Group for putting themselves at our side, with the strength of their communication channels and with a generosity that does them honor "comments Giorgio Gori, mayor of Bergamo.

On the cover of the issue is Caterina Conti, a 39-year-old pulmonologist, a doctor from the Bergamo hospital, engaged in the facility that more than any other, to date, has reached the limit of ICU admissions.

And if in the previous issue #IoSonoMilano was shrieked on the cover, (hashtag that on Instagram from Milan arrived throughout Italy and then bounced around the world in a universal chorus of voices, famous and not, also reposted by great international personalities), the new cover reads #IOCISONO, a message of presence and civil and human commitment that becomes a heroic example.

“But don't call these doctors, nurses, workers and volunteers heroes because they don't want to be called that themselves. They are professionals with an incredible sense of duty, workers to the extreme of strength and possibilities. For us, they become the reflection of a strong and hopeful Italy, a country that has always been able to overcome the most difficult moments. Their stories and businesses, all narrated in this issue, become a human novel that will accompany us forever, not only in the days of this emergency " Simone Marchetti, director of Vanity Fair.

The issue recounts the daily battles of those struggling with an unprecedented emergency. Among the many stories of courage, there is that of a family of pharmacists from Salerno who continues to work for the community despite the fact that his daughter is in precautionary isolation ;; that of a cashier and a newsagent in contact with the public every day; that of an employee of a factory that produces basic necessities; that of a volunteer who in the Marche brings drugs home to immunosuppressed people; and that of a general practitioner from the province of Brescia who talks about the difficulty of this moment.

A special edition that collects success stories, dedication and strength, such as that of Professor Tiberio, who has converted a resuscitation department of the hospital of Padua, or Patrizia Barbieri, mayor of Piacenza, with the testimony from the quarantine of a woman who does not give up, and the solidarity shown by the restaurants and chefs who cook for free for doctors.

In addition to the interviews with Gennaro Arma, Commander of the Diamond Princess who has just returned to Italy, commended for the courageous quarantine on the ship moored in Yokohama, and Daniela Trabattoni, cardiologist of Monzino, the number contains the testimonies of Chiara Gamberale, Cesare Cremonini, Daria Bignardi, and a short story written for Vanity Fair by the writer Eshkol Nevo on the world situation at the time of Covid-19.

Sale & Pepe: discover the February issue – Italian Cuisine


No pancakes …

But donuts. Indeed donut, because there are those who the Carnival he celebrates it like this: with a dessert that is an all-round hoax

181625Have you ever seen a Carnival without pancakes? Impossible, like a Christmas without panettone. Yet it can be done, just put your hands in dough instead of batter, dusting off the recipe of an ancient Tuscan dessert: the Berlingozzo, of which the reporters of the fifteenth century speak of saying that it was consumed on Fat Thursday, called day Shrove, name in turn also of one carnival mask.

Sweet is a simple donut with common ingredients (eggs, flour, sugar), but it has that touch of Tuscan (Vin Santo and extra virgin olive oil) that locates it. So much to provoke parochialism: so from Florence to Prato or in other neighboring areas, to get up to Pitigliano, in Umbria, where a summer festival has been dedicated to the donut for 40 years, the recipe changes a little, what makes everyone say that one's own is the best. And those of Lamporecchio, in the province of Pistoia know it well, because they claim theirs as the mother recipe.

The donut has ancient origins, some 16th century poets cite it and written testimonies place it on the table of Cosimo I de 'Medici, who tasted it as an appetizer. Always the reporters of the time tell how the common people hung the donut around their necks during Carnival, just to joke or better to berate.

The origin of berlingozzo is closely linked to the name of Shrove Thursday or berlingaccio which, in turn, may derive from berlenghum, a word from the late Latin that indicated the table as a canteen, from which by analogy "berlingare", that is to chat after having drunk and eaten, "berlinger", that is, a talkative greedy, and "berlingaccio", the mask that represents him: a big red person, or rather, red-faced. From court appetizer to popular dessert, who knows how and why … What is certain is that during Carnival, with the necessary disguises, the people made fun of the powerful, in addition, the Tuscans are pranksters and slightly opposed: therefore no pancakes but donuts.

Berlingozzo is now a partially forgotten dessert, it resists to a lesser extent in some local pastry shops, yet its simplicity makes it greedy: once cooked, still lukewarm, it is in fact sprinkled with one syrup based on Orange juice is sugar and then completed with granulated sugar or sugared almonds, but nothing prevents you from personalizing it with a good melt of melted chocolate.

On the other hand, it is Carnival and "berlingare" is good for the soul, indeed I could coin the term "berlingozzare", saying that it is even more good. Lorenzo de Medici also knew that in the Carnival Songs dedicates a song to the bakers where it says:
"Women, we are young bakers, very good masters of our art: We made berlingozzi, and sugary."
