There’s a way of life that sums up a love of beauty, the joy of seeing people and simple pleasures, of nature and togetherness.
This lifestyle is centuries-old and contemporary, highlighting recent and distant events, and turning these elements into fertile ground for the universe, a world that includes humans, our accomplishments and everyday way of living life at its fullest.
This is the eclectic world of Vivere di Gusto, a magazine that examines perspectives on life, business, the countryside, history and stories. This daily microcosm of myriad actions and events collected in one place comprises an observatory of the Ruffino lifestyle.
Yes, there’s wine, but there’s also everything that leads to wine and that wine embodies: that nonstop flow of art, culture and knowledge that has crafted our way of life since antiquity and that we now wish to shape into a cabinet of curiosities open and available to all.
The words and photography are edited by Ruffino, featuring content by individuals who understand our lifestyle, a digest of the things and people that we love.
The Ferrari Museum, Maranello
The name of Maranello is inextricably, inevitably bound up with the name (and the myth) of Enzo Ferrari and the Ferrari car company, which was founded almost a hundred years ago in 1929, and its symbol of the rampant horse.
From behind his intriguing and enigmatic dark glasses, Ferrari explained the origin of his company’s coat-of-arms: “In 1923 I won the first Savio circuit, which was run in Ravenna, and there I met Enrico Baracca, father of our hero Francesco. He introduced me to his wife, the ...
Art and the Senses: the Mart and Senso
“Conceived as more of a cultural hub than a traditional museum, the Mart is a true ‘contemporary landscape’.”

Because at the Mart, not only do beauty and good food – culture, in a word – flourish and intertwine; they become united as one, through a ...
Volumnia: the good and the beautiful of Piacenza
29/03/2023The total complex of the Basilica di Sant’Agostino, in Piacenza, is pretty impressive. The physical body of the church itself, which dates back to the sixteenth century, strikes you for its daring, five-aisle structure, for its vast, airy space, for its vertiginous depth and for its great façade, which runs right up to the road outside.
It has a tumultuous history, this church. After a couple of centuries’ service, it was deconsecrated and turned to military use; it went on to change hands ...
Gioacchino Rossini was a rock star before the term existed. As a composer, he was king of the hill in the early nineteenth century; the world lay at his feet. Then, after a couple of decades of frenetic activity, he more or less completely vanished from the scene.
This article isn’t really the place to discuss Rossini’s merits as a composer and an artist – I’m not musically qualified to do so. But the historical sources tell us that this young composer burst ...
Palazzo Portinari Salviati
Via del Corso – or more simply, “il corso” – is one of Florence’s oldest streets, dating back to the days of ancient Roman Florentia. It owes its name to a riderless horse race that was run around the mid-nineteenth century, between the stunning churches and palazzos that flank it on either side. One of the latter is Palazzo Portinari Salviati.
