The Biggest Apple Museum in the World is in Italy

iPhones are Attractive

Although one would expect the biggest Apple museum in the world to be situated in some suitably impressive high-tech fruit-shaped architect-designed structure in the core of Silicon Valley, it isn’t.  According to Italian news website Linkiesta, the biggest Apple museum in the world is in Quiliano, Savona in northern Italy.

Like where?! A very good question!

Here is a map:

Even Apple, the iPhone, iPad, iPod and iMac computer maker led by the recently departed high-tech genius Steve Jobs has admitted that the museum in Italy houses the biggest collection of Apple objects in the world.

This amazing collection of everything Apple has amassed the not inconsiderable number of around 7,000 functioning examples of Apple creations.

Somehow, Apple HQ found out about the All About Apple museum in Italy and was  so impressed that the Cupertino, California based company rewarded that the museums’ founders with a trip to Apple central.

The surprises do not end there.

This Apple Aladdin’s cave in an out of the way corner of Italy sits in the basement of a middle school!  By all accounts, the All About Apple museum has grown too large for its middle school premises.

Bigger Premises

From around about now, this extraordinary collection of Apple memorabilia should be residing in new premises in Quiliano.   Funding for the move out of the middle school basement came from the De Mari Foundation which in turn is sponsored by the Savona savings bank – Cassa di Risparmio di Savona.

Apple devotees who find themselves on holiday in northern Italy and the coastal Italian region of Liguria in which Savona lies is gorgeous as I know very well (My Italian other half is from Genova in Liguria), now have a great excuse to come to Italy.

The All About Apple Museum in Italy qualifies as a Good Italian Thing, as I am certain the Apple fans of the world would agree.

I am an Apple fan.  I own an iMac (which is being repaired!) and an iPhone 4.  One day I shall visit this amazing museum

Berlusconi

Is Silvio Berlusconi on His Way Out?

The question on lips around the world is whether Silvio Berlusconi will stay or will go.

Everybody, and I mean everybody, which means Italians and those from beyond Italy’s shores is uncertain.

In this post I’ve listed a series of factors at play, each of which may, or may not, contribute to Berlusconi’s downfall or longevity. As you will discover, people have good reason to be uncertain, as the matter is by no means straightforward.

Yes, that’s right. The incident in which Silvio Berlusconi was clobbered with a statuette in the middle of his heartland, Milan, the other day has nothing to do with perceptions that he has been creating laws for himself, or with rumors that he is in the mafia.
