Casa Natale di Luigi Pirandello

Here is my personal pick of last week's Italy Magazine articles:

Let's kick off with a story that Simi liked, about the dog lifeguards that patrol Italy's beaches.  She wants to learn to jump from a helicopter!  Still at the sea, how would you feel if you went bathing and found a Roman cargo boat

Interior Minister Roberto Maroni caused much outrage last week when he promised that Italy would be even tougher than the French on the Roma.  ["Roma" is a term often used by the Italian media and politicians to refer to Romanians as well as to the nomadic peoples of Europe.]  The issue is still being hotly debated.

I decided I would like to see this festival but no way would I take part!

For my personal Patti Chiari column, I continued the story of how books brought me to Sicily.

I hope you enjoy these stories.

Hmm, jumping from a helicopter sounds scary, but possibly fun... :)

I'd be too terrified, Rachel but my dog Simi is fearless!

I, too, would like to observe “giorno di sangue.”

Simi Recommends series coming up?

Welshcakes Limoncello said...

Hi, Nick. Yes, it would be very interesting. She thinks that's an excellent idea, James!
