Sausage Crisis!

My good friends at the 4-4-2 pub in Milan, as I have mentioned before, are about to launch their full English breakfast. The launch is planned for the 28th and 29th of October, 2007. But the 4-4-2 has a problem, a big problem: that is they have no good frozen English sausages to serve up with their inaugural English breakfast. Alessandro the landlord urgently needs a supply of good frozen English sausages.

If you think you can help him out, and you happen to be an English sausage manufacturer who would like to enter the Italian market, this could be a great business opportunity. Personally, I think that English style sausages would go down rather well here, with the right marketing, of course. The England brand is strong, and, as an aside, I believe that good quality subtly flavoured English sausages, either fresh or frozen, would sell well here in Italy. This would be a good opportunity to test the market and verify whether Italy is a good market for your products. I believe that Sainsbury’s, the UK supermarket chain, has a link with the Italian supermarket chain Esselunga, so perhaps either could help out.

Foggy Milan

A Foggy Night in Milan – Photographs

Many years ago when I first came to Milan, winters were cold and foggy. Nowadays fog in the centre of Milan is quite rare, which is why when I say it was good and foggy the other evening I whipped out to attempt to capture the atmosphere, and to try out a fast 50mm f1.4 lens.

Here, then, are a few black and white photographs of Milan in the fog. Why black and white? First, I like black and white, and second, black and white captures the mood of foggy nights better, or so I think.

There is also an image of the, er, Christmas butterflies in via Paolo Sarpi. Well, they look like butterflies to me, but I think they are supposed to be angels.
