“First of all, let’s get one thing straight. Your Italy and our Italia are not the same thing. Italy is a soft drug peddled in predictable packages, such as hills in the sunset, olive groves, lemon trees, white wine, and raven-haired girls. Italia, on the other hand, is a maze. It’s alluring, but complicated…” ~ Beppe Severgnini Postcard from Italy :: Florence 

Out of Focus :: Roman Street Art, etc.

“Canzoni belle e appassionate/ che Roma mia m’ha ricordate,/ cantate solo pe’ dispetto,/ ma co ‘na smania drent’ar petto;/ io nun ve canto a voce piena,/ ma tutta l’anima è serena;/ e quanno er cèlo se scolora/ de me nessuna se ‘nnamora…” :: “Tanto Pe’ Cantà” ~ Ettore Petrolini – Alberto Simeoni

“Cicero smiled at us. ‘The art of life is to deal with problems as they arise, rather than destory one’s spirit by worrying about them too far in advance. Especially tonight.” ~ Robert Harris
