Our Italian fantasies usually include sipping limoncello on Lake Como with George Clooney, but for something a little more feasible we always have Spoleto Festival USA, where for 17 days Charleston teams up with its Italian sister city — Spoleto — for an art festival bonanza. Sure, the fest features acts from across the globe, not just Italy, but we like our little bit of Italian-ness in the Holy City. What can we say, riding our bikes to the Cistern for alfresco concerts and seeing aerialists twirling 30 feet above a stage make us happy. And this year’s lineup has a little something for everyone, from an opera about the headless corpse of Goya to jazzy-pop singer Kat Edmonson, a mother-and-son produced play about arranged marriages called A Brimful of Asha, and the Welsh pianist Gwilym Simcock. For our complete guide to Spoleto, turn to page 24.
