Every family has its own traditions, little rituals that make them unique and united. In the Silvestri family, the most sacred and treasured of them all is Pasta Sundays. A gathering which is as much about their superior cooking abilities, as it is about wine, and good conversation. CasaLife Magazine was conceived on one such afternoon in the kitchen of Costa Verde 5.

“Casa de Campo needs a magazine,” said Philip Silvestri to his father and sous-chef, Claudio Silvestri, at the time President of the resort. This was not the first time Philip had mentioned the idea, and so on this particular afternoon, perhaps in frustration, Claudio replied, “If you believe in it so much, you should do it.”

Founded a decade ago by Philip Silvestri with partners Michael and Nora Bulnes, publisher and founder of Selecta Magazine, Miami’s leading Hispanic publication, CasaLife is now celebrating its first decade! You can read all about it in the 10th anniversary edition of CasaLife which is out now.
