Cucina Italiana: a Guidebook to Italian dining

One thing is certain, the world is in love with Italian food. Going beyond stereotypes, this guidebook shares the profiles of those Italian restaurants in the Australian states of NSW and ACT that are certified as genuine promoters of not only the culinary traditions, but also of the authentic products that make the flavours of Italy so distinctive and so widely imitated around the world. That amazing piece of the globe that surrounds the Mediterranean Sea has gifted humanity with ingredients that come together into what is recognised as the healthiest way of eating - the Mediterranean diet. The reader will also find titbits and insights into some of the elements that are never missing from an Italian kitchen.

Despite the recovery of business confidence indices recorded in February, GDP is expected to contract sharply in Germany in the opening quarter of 2021, after proving more resilient than in the rest of the euro area in the autumn quarter of 2020. In particular:
- The critical factor is the strict lockdown regime in place since 16 December, and recently extended until 7 March (which may be eased locally if the infection rate drops to less than 35 cases per 100,000 population, which is not yet the case);
- Therefore, manufacturing may add around 3 billion to GDP at the beginning of 2021; however, in the same period, the services sector could subtract between 10 and 15 billion, of which over half accounted for by retail, and restaurant and hospitality services.

In this week's economic update:
- WHO data indicate that the winter wave of the #Covid19 pandemic is regressing from its January peak, although new confirmed cases are still exceeding the 3-million mark on a weekly basis (around 2 million less than in mid-January);
- Globally, the vaccination campaign has passed the 70-million mark in terms of the doses administered, that nonetheless still account for less than 1% of the world population;
- Failure to immunise the population in the emerging countries could prevent a full normalisation of international mobility, also due to the risk of a widespread circulation of the virus resulting in the emergence of mutations.
