Who doesn’t want to go to Italy? The country has forever stood as a representation of summer, sunshine, enjoyment and the good life, or ‘la dolce vita’. And the culinary aspect of an Italian life is probably what fuels our love for the place the most. 

Whether in the kitchen, on the patio or in your garden: reminiscing of a past trip or anticipating the next Italian holiday will make pizza, pasta and gelato taste even more delicious. But if a trip to the southern European country isn’t immediately on the cards, there’s no reason that should come in the way of recreating that experience. 

From a relaxed pizza party or an Italian style dinner, to the classiest ways of sipping on some delicious wine, Villeroy and Boch has you covered!  

Pizza and some wine to go with it? Make sure you've got some good old villeroy & boch to up the glam quotient in true italian fashion!

On the pizza party front, the gourmet plates from the Manufacture Rock and NewMoon collections are ideal for serving pizzas quickly and in style. The 32 cm diameter is impressive on its own, but there’s more! As each slice is eaten, the plates impress guests even more, because below the pizza is either the distinctive Manufacture textured black slate effect or the crescent moon shape of the otherwise simple white NewMoon plate. Talk about having your cake and eating it too! 

As an elegant alternative to a pizza evening, you can also create a typical Italian meal consisting of several courses. An aperitif accompanied by fresh antipasti sets the ideal atmosphere at the start of the evening. This is followed by pasta or risotto, then meat with vegetables or a crispy salad. For dessert, there is tiramisu or ice cream and, to round off the meal in true Italian style, a caffè or an espresso. All served on refined cutlery courtesy Villeroy & Boch of course. 

There's a stylish place for everything italian on the table, thanks to v&b.

But what’s an Italian experience without some wine? A meal simply isn’t complete without some drinks to complement it. While an Aperol spritz is ideal as a pre-dinner drink with antipasti, a sparkling white wine or an Italian red wine are good choices to accompany the main courses. But what’s the perfect companion for it all? 

Villeroy & Boch offers a wide selection of beautiful glasses in special shapes, colours or with extra-thin sides. It’s as sleek as you’ve ever imagined, and nicely rounds up the meal in a stylish fashion.
