SUV


I'm astonished by the high number of king-size vehicles populating the centre of roma. I know that there should be something with psychology on buying the biggest (is it sexual?), or the fastest (nah, it is not...) thing...
...but the average centre-city street is as narrow as 2.5 metre, how can you put and move a Hummer inside it?

Recess...


... I just remember, 15 minutes spent trying to eat my sandwich as fast as I could, to have time for real life playing calvinball or anything else, till the bell ringing again. Please let the kids play ...

Anchiano (and surroundings)...


...it's a quiet village in the nearbies of Firenze, where the first pioneer bioengineeer was born. I definitely do think that the majority of Anchiano's (or Vinci's) catholics are somewhat indifferent with what has been distorted in Brown's Da Vinci Code. I'm catholic and I should be among the ones offended by it, and i'm not: after all, when seeing a movie/reading a book, do i have to waste time reckoning whether is real?

foo(t)ball..


I do not like wrestling, though there's a clear point in it: it's only show, no competition. Referees are just part of it, and also kids can distinguish what's real from what's fake.
In italy, the by-far most popular game has recently overtaken wrestling, in that not less than 20 matches in the second-last tournament were no more than an actors' studio...
...and I will be paying my last 5€ to these actors today...
by te way, the most rumoured team is in black and white stripes ;-)

White Beards and hair


Italy's now got a new president, whose name is Napolitano, a green-line guy born in the 20's. I'm personally quite accustomed to white hair and beards ;-)...
but, dear oldish italy, do we really dare to grow older with you?

Follow up...

I've been a little bit lazy on this, and three weeks have passed since my latest. There's something new now, i.e. I've got a sticker on my passport!
Time is running, now not more than 60 days, and I'll leave Rome...
something aside, Anna Finocchiaro is still on the way, let's see what happens.
