Don’t underestimate Italian presidents.

Dear Mr Burlusconi had a few almost harsh words to say about former Italian president Mr Ciampi.

Mr Ciampi did an excellent job and kept Mr B and his boys in check. Mr Ciampi even prevented Mr B from introducing unconstitutional changes to Italian laws. Mr C had Italy’s interests at heart, so he was a good influence on Italy.

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.

Mr Napolitano, the current Italian president, although being, in theory, sympathetic to Prodi and his government, has been protecting the interests of the Italian population too. He recently told the politicos to get their acts together. Well done sir!

Why can these presidents act with integrity? Simple. They are older people at the ends of their careers, so they can concentate on doing what is right, and not simply protecting interests. And this keeps Italy from going over the top, I reckon.

I don’t believe many appreciate this. Either within, or outside the Living Museum.

Navmii Italy on the Apple iPhone 4 – Review and Giveaway

Rather fortuitously just before I took off for Tuscany, so to speak, I was contacted by Navmii, who make the turn-by-turn GPS application for the iPhone, the Navmii GPS Live for Italy app. Navmii were even going to give a free copy of their Iphone 4 GPS app to test, but as a result of my not being signed up with the right Apple iTunes store, I bit the bullet and bought it. It only costs 4 Euros, that’s $4.99 for US customers.
