Italians do it worse

Two news this week made me think that future for Italy will be darker and darker and darker: only one person of five (17% for precision), aged between 24 and 34, has got a degree ... This sets Italy behind countries like Chile and Mexico, far far away from the excellence of Russian Federation and Canada (55%); moreover, 18.6% of young guys between 15 and 26 years has no work, the worst result since 1983.

But our Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi keeps saying that italian economy is strong ...

Do I remember bad or he is the 2nd richest person in Italy?

Queen Yelena

Rome, Golden Gala, 23:15: the queen is back to fly. All other competitions are over, the whole crowd cheers her, she looks the bar, 5m03 over the ground, and starts to run ... Now 12 august 2005, Helsinki World Championships and the 5m01 record are only a far and faded memory ... The reign of Queen Yelena from Volgograd has never been so strong!!!

Ode to a Woman

A man can walk along the most beautiful shores;
A man can climb the highest and wildest peaks;
A man can explore the deepest oceans ...
... but nothing could ever give him
the same emotions as three simple words
spoken by the loved woman:

Dal Molin US Army base

Yesterday almost 80.000 people met themselves in Vicenza, fighting cold, to show their position against the building of a new american military base in the city.

The "Dal Molin case" was born in 2005, when the former Council President Silvio Berlusconi and the Vicenza major Hullweck (without  letting people know about that)  found agreement for allowing US Army to build a new base. The base, which is supposed to rise in the civil airport Dal Molin, would put together the 173 Airborne Brigade, nowadays stationed half in Aviano and half in Germany; target of this operation is being able of making fast military actions in Middle-Eastern regions, full in strategic resources. 
This project is devastating from both the social and the environmental aspects, especially in a city which is under Unesco's protection.

Most people give part of the guilt to Prodi's government, but I think that he couldn't have done anything different, since the agreement had already been reached.
