Passion, creativity and finesse: Paola Fruscio welcomes us to her shop in the historic centre of Sorrento. Among ribbons and sugared almonds, party favors and decorations, she describes the steps she took to become a successful wedding planner and the owner of “Il telaio dei sogni” (“The Loom of Dreams”): a treasure chest of gift ideas and everything you need to make the day of your fateful «yes» unforgettable.
Conserving its gastronomic identity, but without forgoing the taste for the integration of different cultures: this is the philosophy that made “Il buco” an outpost for safeguarding the traditions of this land, even before it became a Michelin starred restaurant as well as one of the most appreciated in Campania.

Lila is an infant prodigy. She has learned to read on her own and she is very quick at doing sums. She has dark fuzzy hair, a slim body, and a rebel attitude in her early years of school.

The relationship between the two girls is the main thread of «My Brilliant Friend», the first novel of the tetralogy authored by Elena Ferrante.
