Pop Art Fiat 500

Here are some more shots of the pop art covered Fiat 500, which I saw at the Fiat Open Lounge ‘see in the summer’ evening, held last week in Milan.

The artwork was done by Andy, ex-member of Italian band Bluvertigo, as part of his Flu-On art project.  It’s very colourful.  See how many famous faces/characters you can spot. There are plenty of them.

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.

I think this colourful Fiat 500 looks pretty darn cool, and great fun too.  Not sure I’d drive it though!

Just click play to see the 16 photos.  A full-screen version of this short photo presentation is available too – click on the four little arrows which you should see in the bottom right hand corner. Just in case the photos are not visible, here is a link you can use to see them: Pop Art Covered Fiat 500

I’ve no idea whether Fiat is planning on mass producing these things.  People in the USA should be getting the Fiat 500 soon, and I think they might quite like it.

Trash in Naples, Italy

Trash Troubles A Burning Issue in Naples, again

A while back, a while before the election of Berlusconi into power, Italy, and Naples in particular, came to the attention of the world for all the wrong reasons. It was a nasty situation, possibly provoked by the mafia, which left Naples full of festering piles of garbage. Well, the trash, alas, is back.

Popular Italy Books

Ever wondered which books people read when they think about Italy? Well, one easy way to find out is to see what’s hot on Amazon. In this case, it’s Amazon.com and Amazon.co.uk from which I’ve compiled a list of the best selling books on Italy. If you are stuck for Christmas present inspiration, then this post might be a gift to you.

Before you look at the complete list, try to guess which books on Italy people are buying. Some may surprise you, as the Italian connection is not always that obvious.

Academic arrogance

Something else I'm hearing a bit about these days is the arrogance which pervades the academic establishment here.
