Top Ten Posts From The Bloggers in Italy – Learn about Winemaking, Mushrooms and Italy’s Water Footprint amongst other things!

This week I am delighted to have been honoured again with a lovely compliment by the following Blog.

italytutto – the blog about the blogs and bloggers in italy for my recent post  Grape Harvest and Winemaking

This blog does a fantastic job of keeping track of bloggers in Italy and I am sharing the list with you here, so if you are interested please go and have a browse around by just clicking on the links. I found them all interesting but the one that surprised me was the size of Italy's water footprint which Living in Rome featured for Blog Action Day on October 15th, which I have mentioned in the title as it is a fascinating read!  A quote from the post ‘Italy lags only a little behind the United States in the league table of world champion water guzzlers!’

This excellent blog is maintained by a freelance writer with wide experience who first started writing this blog at the beginning of 2009 to keep track of all her favourite bloggers in Italy.

At the beginning of 2010, she made a lifestyle choice and gave up full-time corporate life to spend more time at her home in Lunigiana in Northern Tuscany, she now divides her time between Italy and the UK.

I enjoy reading this feature on a regular basis and through italytutto have discovered lots of great blogs on Italy which I hope some of you will now maybe discover for yourselves.

News From Italy has had the honour of being featured a couple of times previously and the lists can be found here on August 4th 2010 and here on August 30th 2010.
