SPREZZATURA: UNCONSCiOUS STYLE AND EFFORTLESS TALENT


"Italians have a word—sprezzatura—to indicate their belief 
that style must be unconscious and that talent must appear effortless. 
You have sprezzatura if you are naturally able to perform extraordinary deeds, 
come se niente fosse, as if there were nothing to it. "

Gini Alhadeff, Travel + Leisure


One of my core beliefs, too-- wish we had and English equivalent!
