Dear Maurizio Belpietro,
I know, I know, the screaming headline should have immediately warned me:
Are you looking for La Verità (The Truth)? You will find it at your nearest Newsstand. It only costs 1 Euro.
Um, excuse me? The truth is already difficult to obtain and you Mr. Editor, are selling it for only 1 Euro.
Doubts become certainties, when I read a recent article in your newspaper by Marco Guerra.
On the other hand this happened ... More

Words fail me even though I am here giving my opinion, regarding the United Airlines flight incident the other day ...
I have taught myself to think it over and not write immediately what is on my mind....reflect, then go for it.
There are, as always, a few versions, but it doesn't make any difference. Let me give you a brief idea of what happened.
On United Airlines Flight 3411 from Chicago to Louisville, when all passengers had already boarded an... More
The recipe for Peking Duck dates back from the Ming Dinasty (1368-1644). The ducks that are bred for this purpose are slaughtered after 65 days.
In their last 2 weeks, they are fed up to 4 times a day with livestock feed particularly with millet flakes, mung bean sprouts and finely crushed wheat/corn straw.
The duck's preparation provides many a transition, including "a drying moment" for hours in a ventilated place.
Once upon a time, when there obviously wasn't... More
Applause for an artist, is the true climax of his/her relationship with an audience. For many, not for all.
For a few, it is even the very same reason to be an artist.
Not for me.
I like to breathe in a smile, two sparkling eyes, mouth wide open in a kind of WOW of astonishment and admiration.
I don't know why, but I just don't trust and, am suspicious of an artist trying too hard for a constant 'applause ....
The most repulsive and loathsome aspect of everything I have read these days in the Italian press, was to see a total dystonia by the entire elite of Italian journalism and without missing a beat, the Italian TV Star System, lining up against the closing of "Let's talk Saturday" (Parliamone Sabato) and a larger part of the Italian public entusiastic towards it's shut down.
I believe a question or two is necessary regarding the actual or real capability/wanting of this "self-referential ... More
I don't understand your annoyance towards Italy, as if only wickedness is a priority in this country. I don't agree with your accusations towards racism, it isn't correct for you to condemn a country this ferociously.
Here in the North there are optimal examples of integration, many people are doing their utmost to help, not just to blend in, but helping them with health care, at times even gratis. In my little town, there is an association that helps single parents (young women)... More
In ITALY it only takes 7 minutes to lose your son and/or daughter.
The verdict from the Court of Appeals in Turin, which confirmed the adoptability of Gabriella Carsano and Luigi Deambrosis' daughter, meaning, that they can't raise their own daughter, is INHUMANE and ABOMINABLE and is the total opposite of the most fundamental of human rights.
The motivation regarding this verdict is, are you ready (?): the parent's ages (today they are 63 and 75 years of age, and, at the time of the ver... More
