Every few stores I would stop in my kitten-heeled sandles to peer into the antique and fashion boutique windows while my husband waited patiently accustomed to my frequent stops and starts. But in the light of that fading Italian evening, one shop stood out from the others – San Jacopo Show. Dinner reservations or not, I had serious Diva Business to attend to and discovering an intriguing shop for my readers took priority over a rumbling stomach. My heart rate increased as I oogled the stores contents through the front finestrino and, though the store was about to close, I snuck inside to investigate. Though the store was packed with an odd assortment of modern and quirky items, it was the lampshades that stole the show…. and made this Diva-scovery worth writing home about!

I’m still dreaming of my dinner… first course, Pecorino Brulee and Tagliatelle ai Funghi Porcini!
