Dinner and opera

Last Sunday, we spent an incredible evening of food and music in a small town near Canelli called Monastero Bormida. The event was hosted by Masca (refer www.mascainlanga.it), a local association which combines culture and environment to create sustainability for the local area. The evening was held in the courtyard of Monastero Bormida's castle which was once an abbey founded in 1050AD. We enjoyed a four course meal while being entertained by three young opera singers. A highlight of the evening was their beautiful rendition of O Sole Mio. I am not sure if living in Italy gets any better than this...
