Learn Italian online

Grey, wet, and dull in Milan today and breakfast.

I almost cannot remember the last grey day here in Milan. It’s been so long. Anyway, to remind me that it is possible to have grey, wet, and dull weather in Italy, Milan today is suitably grey, wet and dull, with a hint of cool thrown in for good measure.

Just the sort of day when you need a little good news to cheer you up. Well, possibly, I have that news. You see, while having a quick pint down at my Milan local the 4-4-2 last night, Maurizio the barman, told me that from the 27th and 28th of October, that’s a Saturday and a Sunday, the 4-4-2 will start serving English style breakfasts.

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.

Personally, I can’t wait to check this out. A good, comprehensive, full English breakfast is wonderful. Although it is not something to be eaten every day, unless you feel like setting a new personal best in terms of cholesterol levels, that is. But, what the heck, every so often this sort of treat won’t do any long term damage. In connection with this momentous event, mention has been made of smokey bacon, fried bread, baked beans, real English sausages etc. Indeed, the very thought of all this yummy stuff is making my mouth water.

There, told you I would brighten up this dull day.

PS The print out the 4-4-2 page of this blog and get 2 beers for the price of one offer is still on!

Once again, I’m pleased to be able to report that recognition for the talent of Italian artist friend of mine Gaetano Fiore is increasing. Gaetano also tells me that BlogfromItaly.com has made a contribution to his visibility, as I had hoped. I’m pleased to announce that Fiore’s work is now on display as part of the ‘Dissolvenze Incrociate’ – biennial art exhibition in Ferrara.

Congratuations to Gaetano Fiore are in order, and credit also must go to Virgilio Patarini of Milan’s Zamenhof Gallery for his stirling efforts in helping increase the visibility of skilled but not yet well-known Italian artists and photographers, such as Marco Post Morello.
