442 Pub Milan – New Banner

Down at my favourite watering hole there is a curious new flag with ‘Four Four Two, Milan’ on it. Although this flag, which can been seen on Facebook, appears to be English – red cross on a white background, not the Union Jack, interestingly enough, it is the flag of Milan.

I have no idea why the England and Milan flags are exactly the same, but I have to say that it is very appropriate for a sport pub in Milan. If anyone out there knows anything about the origins of the Milan flag, then please let me know.

Stop reading, start speaking

Stop translating in your head and start speaking Italian for real with the only audio course that prompt you to speak.

I have used said flag as the basis of the new banner ad on this blog, and you will see it down on the left hand side. If you click on said banner, you will be taken to the official 442 pub site, but much better than a virtual visit is a real one. And shortly all you rugby fans will be able to see all the rugby down at the pub – but get there before the matches start, otherwise you will find it is standing room only. The atmosphere will be great though, sitting or standing.

Oh, and the ‘two beers for the price of one’ offer is still on. Yet another excuse for checking the place out.

I was contacted recently by Rebecca Harp of the Jerusalem Studio School in connection with the launch of its summer art program in Tuscany, Italy.

Italia.it is back – It’s Official

Italia.it, which should, perhaps, be the number one official tourism internet domain for Italy, has been resurrected, after having been abandoned a year or so ago. Unfortunately, the resurrection has led to a slight problem, in that Italy now boasts a total of three official tourism websites.

This is a hoot! Berlusconi’s latest election gimmick is to field pretty young ladies and television personalties as candidates.. Most will come from his channels, one suspects.
