If you would like to know who this guy is, click on his name. He also runs a particularly noteworthy blog, which is in Italian. To get there I followed the link in Montecatini Bloggers' Corner. I had heard of this guy before, but have to confess to not knowing that much about him, however, if you read the description from Answers.com, you will find out that he has been forced off Italian TV as a result of direct criticism of his Italian masters. Now, I'm not going to say that what he is on about is right or wrong, but let's just say that it will give you an alternative view as to what is going on here in the living museum.
