Latest Accident, Via Aleardi, Milan, Italy

In a very recent post, last Sunday in fact, I claimed that the junction where Via A Aleardi crosses Via G B Bertini in Milan, Italy, was an accident black spot.  Well, tonight there was another accident.

Milan Accident, Again

Exactly the same dynamics from what I saw.  Car comes out of Via A Aleardi, and is hit by a motorbike, OK, a super scooter, which is heading down Via G B Bertini.  There was an ambulance there too, which is never a good sign.

I claimed there was an accident every week in my last post.  Looks as though I should up that to two accidents a week.

This worries me.   I have a six year old son, and I would like him to reach at least the same age as me.

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.

Beware, this junction in Milan is dangerous.  Be very careful if you ever find yourself in the Paolo Sarpi area of Milan, especially if you are on two wheels.

A Voyage into the Wonderful World of Italian Politics

Despite the golden opportunity presented by the latest in a long line of scandals regarding Italy’s right wing Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi, Italy’s left has failed to depose Italy’s controversial leader. One reason for this is that it is uncertain as to who exactly runs Italy’s left of centre Democratic Party – the PD.

Generally, it is clear who captains which political parties in Italy, as you will discover from this nautically flavoured voyage into the world of Italian politics.

I’ll kick off with the battleship.
