Rosita Missoni is the co-founder of the famous Missoni fashion house in Milan. On our last trip to Rome, we were stuck in a rainstorm and popped into the closest store to us- Missoni. That's where we found our favorite umbrella that we always get complements on (similar one here).
We love learning about what actual Italians cook on a daily basis, so when we saw this article about a lunch Missoni made for her friends at home, we had to try it! She even harvested the vegetables and herbs for the lunch from her own garden. We found our zucchini at the farmers' market.
