Day of remembrance: the Stolpersteines

Through the centuries there have been many genocides, at every corner of the planet. The holocaust is one of them, possibly the most ferocious and deliberated one.

Good Luck Italy!!!

I don't usually post about politics, unless I feel it is necessary to voice my point of view. This is one of those occasions I feel there is a need to share what I feel about the present "Crisi di Governo", which is ongoing in Italy these days.

Oman: a gentle winter

A couple of years ago I spent my Christmas break in Oman, a Country in the Arab Peninsula bordering Saudi Arabia, the UA and Yemen. I toured a lot the east and south east of the Country starting from the capital city, Muscat, passing by the former capital, Nizwa, down to the sand desert close to the village of Bidiyah, and I spent the night in the desert.

An impressive view over the Alps

If you want to reach the highest tips of the Alps you must go to Italy (although the location of the highest cliff of Mount Blanc is still an open controversy between Italy and France): Mont Blanc, Matterhorn and the Pink Mount are all in Italy, (although they are accessible also from France and Swizterland)

Dante: the father of the Italian Language

The reason why the Dante's Inferno is so successful is the ability of the author to depict in such an imaginative way the punishements that await the sinful people in hell, in such a way to impact, still today, on the collective imagination of us all. There is no representation of heall, in the arts, in movies or theatre shows which doesn't make reference to Dante's Inferno
