Water and Light

Not sure just where this is, but it is definitely in Italy somewhere.

It’s a glorious combination of water and light, and I suspect you will like it.  It’s very Italian too.  Although Italy has plently of mountainous landscape, it is virtually an island, surrounded, as it is on three sides by water, and that’s not to mention the famous Italian lakes of Maggiore, Garda and Como.

Feast your eyes on Jackctk’s untitled work, which I have titled!

Seeing as I do not know exactly where this is, how about trying to guess.  But don’t cheat!  I have asked the photographer where it is in Italy, but he has not let me know just yet.  I did only ask a few minutes ago! 

Leave a comment if you think you know whereabouts the photo was taken: city etc.  Thanks!

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.

Update: Reader Eric has kindly informed me that this image is looking south across the Arno at San Frediano in Cestello.  Thanks Eric!

With thanks to Jackctk for letting Blog from Italy use this image, which was created with a Nikon D70s.  The lens used was a Nikon 18-200mm VR.

If you’d like to hang one of Jack’s images in your living room, or send one to a friend, then maybe you would like take a look at Jack’s shop: Jackco on RedBubble.com

Now, where are you going on holiday this year?  Or in the next year or two; once this darned crisis becomes a thing of the past.

Vieni Via Con Me, Lega Nord and the mafia

Those not in the Living Museum might not have heard of a new Italian television programme called ‘Vieni Via Con Me’, – which is ‘Come Away With Me’ in English. However just about everyone in the whole of Italy has heard of this new show now. On Monday this week, some 10 million Italians tuned in to see this new programme which is an attempt to portray the high and low points of life and society in contemporary Italy.

A Question: What Are You?

With my marketing and media relations English classes at the business school where I work, after a few lessons, I hit them with a seemingly very simple question, which flummoxes most of those in the room. That question is “What are you?”. It elicits any number of responses, and leads to many puzzled faces when I say, “Yes, true, and…”.

After several attempts, some of those in the classroom cotton on to what I’m looking for – remember these are marketing and media relations masters, but I also ask the students on other master courses the same question – usually around the time they are being prepared for job interviews designed to test their levels of English.

So what is the answer to this innocent sounding question? And what has this got to do with Italy?

Abruzzo – Castles and Controversy

Onna in Abruzzo was one of the many places virtually raised to the ground by the earthquake which hit the Italian region of Abruzzo back in April of this year. Yesterday, and to much fanfare, ninety four new dwellings were handed over to around 300 people who lost their homes in the earthquake.
