Much like Italy's undulating cities and towns, individual families have their own easy way of welcoming the steady flow of relatives and close friends central to their lives. It's only fitting, then, that a close-knit stateside family immersed in the Italian culture dines alfresco, whether entertaining a small group of friends or a crowd. Painting the loggia with further importance are the words of artist Camille Pissarro written over the grill: "Even the shadows are multicolored in the glorious countryside around Rome." © Gibbs Smith, Allure of French & Italian Design, Betty Lou Phillips
