The Ferrari California

The Ferrari California is supposed to be a more ‘female’ friendly Ferrari which, shock horror, comes with an automatic gearbox as standard.


However even if it is for the girls, this boy would not mind one of these toys.  It looks absolutely stunning too.  Not a bad car for power dressers either.

First, here’s a little YouTube video produced by Autocar.tv which talks about the Ferrari California and the ethos behind it.  Next there is another YouTube video which is more of a sound track really.

I hope you will agree that the Ferrari California’s magical engine sounds as good as it looks.

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.


Boy does that engine rev freely.  The sound is music to my ears!  Oh yes, this is most definitely a Good Italian Thing, even if it is not supposed to be a big boy’s toy!

Still, I’m sure the odd female blogstar or two would not mind roaring around in one of these.

California dreaming at its best!

PS If you happen to be a lady blogstar who has one of these California dreams, can I come for a ride?

Rome Correspondent John Hooper

Interview: Guardian & Economist Journalist John Hooper

I’ve been reading Guardian and Economist journalist and Rome correspondent John Hooper’s articles on events in Italy for some time, then I found John Hooper tweeting on Twitter.

One day, John Hooper actually started following my newsfromitaly persona on Twitter, which meant I could send him a private message. Not that I thought he would agree, but ever hopeful, I fired off a private Tweet to ask him if he’d like to do an interview, albiet via email, for BlogfromItaly.com. Much to my delight (and surprise), he kindly agreed.

Here is the result, and I hope you like the questions I posed to John Hooper, and I suspect you’ll find his responses interesting – I certainly did.
