Donald Trump’s daughter is the latest big name to have discovered the charms of Italy’s remote south-east
In Monopoli, a sleepy fishing village in Puglia founded by the ancient tribes of southern Italy, the excitement is palpable. The strong rumour is that Ivanka Trump, the daughter of Donald Trump, is coming to town.
“All we need now is to hear that her dad is coming too,” joked the town’s mayor, Emilio Romani. And if the chattering in the Italian press is to be believed, that prospect may be likelier than he imagines.
