I'm sure many of you have seen the phrase La Dolce Vita, if not in restraunts– then on famous reprints.. or unfamous ones you can buy at your local Target. I personally have seen the phrase repeated everywhere from Target, to Paris, magazines, in a book I was reading, and finally in some very beautiful opera music I was listening to. So being the Google savvy person that I think I am– I looked it up and found the meaning of the phrase in the Uk's version of "Phrase Finder":
So thank you phrase finder for enlightening me on this beautiful term:
The good life, full of pleasure and indulgence.
This phrase entered the language following the success of the 1960 film La Dolce Vita. This was written and directed by Federico Fellini and starred Marcello Mastroianni, Anita Ekberg and Anouk Aimée.
La dolce vita translates from the Italian as 'the sweet life' and this was used as one of the advertising taglines for the film. Of course, this phrase would have been commonplace in Italian-speaking countries prior to 1960 but only became part of English at that date."
May we all enjoy a little La Dolce Vita in our lives.
