General Italian topics for visitors to Italy

There is a lot more to an Italian vacation than just compiling a sightseeing checklist, buying airline tickets, finding a place to stay, and looking forward to great food and wine. There are all sort of ancillary topics of interest that will pop up when you are in Italy.

Who was this Michelangelo guy anyway? What does "the baroque" era mean? How can I take a one-day cooking class? When did ancient Rome fall? Can I really get a Vespa tour?

Here are some of your answers.
