Taormina Steps, A Photograph by David Smith

Italy is a very colorful place. You’ll see color everywhere, from pastel pinks and yellows to bright reds and rich greens. Indeed, Italy is a photographers delight, as David Smith well knows.

Here’s one of David’s shots of a lovely set of steps in tantalising Taormina in Sicily. If you really David’s image, you can buy a print, as indeed others have.

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.

Maybe you could hang it on a wall in your home as a way keeping those memories of that vacation in Sicily fresh. This photograph might even tempt you to pay another visit there.

Photography PrintsIf you haven’t visited Taormina, you might like to think about it. Not only is this seaside town in Sicily charming, it’s got a full calendar of cultural events too. Everything from pop music to classical music. Visit in early August and you may well be greeted by a jazz festival. Then there’s the sea: expect transparent waters and picturesque views. You may even end up rubbing shoulders with a few celebrities. And don’t forget to take a closer look at the rest of Sicily while you are there.

You can see more of David’s colorful photography in his Italian Treasures gallery on Fine Art America.

Italy, Cost Cutting, and Sacrifices

The Berlusconi government is on the brink of introducing a raft of cost cutting methods which are designed to reduce Italy’s spiralling public debt level, and help put Italy in a better position to face the post global economic crisis world. If all goes to plan, Italy will have another 24 Billion Euros in its coffers.

Foreign Direct Investment – Italy Not in Top 15

It’s easy to be negative about Italy, and the country is receiving quite a lot of bad press at the moment, what with potentially repressive laws designed to restrict press freedom, and the odd scandal or three. All the furore leads to this question, possibly: Could Italy’s tarnished image be damaging the countries foreign direct investment prospects?

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.
