Magister

Dear readers, Blondewithbrain got her Master degree in international relations yesterday. The discussion was very specific and it can be rightfully called the last battle. Finishing was really touching, and I was surrounded by the closest person in this important occasion. After the classical beheading of a bottle of champagne (a Tsarine was more than appropriate)…

Sour Serum to Start Super

First thing you do in the morning is having half a lemon juice and fill the remaining half of the glass with hot water.

Hard Power vs. Hard Power

This morning I read the news about Trump’s missile strike on the Syrian air base. Despite the horror of the chemical attack I was totally surprised Trump would turn against Assad, who is an ally for Russia–to which apparently the approach would be different to the previous administration. But then I started strolling on the chemical attacks…

Enjoy beauty and make no war

Aesthetics is the key to a fulfilled, pleasant life. It’s never been my intention to imitate Oscar Wilde or Gabriele D’Annunzio because it might seems shallow, but in a world where horrors happen living surrounded by beautiful things helps enormously. Plus it’s easy to imagine luxury, statues, marbles and beautiful cars, but it’s way simpler than…

First you shoot him and then you save him?

I honestly can’t get why we keep on seeing and reading that the terrorist who attempted to brutally murder as much as possible innocent civilians has been attempted to save after being shot and taken to hospital for care. They should take their heads off and show them hanged in the street where the attack…

From the Gold Cup to El Prat

(This post was due yesterday but inexplicably it wasn’t published) A souvenir that I leave behind me each time I go through Barcelona is feeling hangover wandering around its airport. Behind me, memories of a remarkably funny night. Today I am coming back from England after having participated the 17th of March to one of the most…

Road trip to Kitzbühel

This year I had the most perfect ski holiday in Kitzbühel with my English family, which I have no words to thank enough. We are all in one piece (unlike my daddy who broke his femur at the beginning of the year skiing) and the ski holiday came back to be my favourite from a…

Born under the sign of Pisces

Starting from February 19th start also the celebrations for the most sparkling sign of the zodiac. Pisces are sparkling because even when they are down, they manage to be a true hoot in parties… that’s their way to (try to) forget, even if they end up hurting themselves and then go on, until they get…

A clean January

Hello readers, January is bizarely one of my favourite months: starting a new year is always exciting, there are many expectations all up to be realised; the cold weather makes enjoying being cozy in the house drinking hot drinks and watching films and series; cuddling under the hottest blanket is better then ever; spa is…

First class ending

London is calling and I am joining the City with my perfect gentleman on the same trip that J.K. Rowling did when she had the inspiration for Harry Potter. This year was very unique, and like 2015 it is ending in a way I could have never expected. 2015 was memorable because of the political…

The eve

Dear all, I am sorry for being extremely lazy and having spent a week in waking up at 11am after falling asleep into the couch for excessive walking after I passed the last two exams of my master degree. I was enormously stressed as I made the mistake that most students of political science do:…

Italy for ExIt

No wonder most of the journals –  The Economist, the Financial Times, The Huffington Post to say a few of them – and media are talking about us, the Italians who have to go to vote and save themselves from a technical government and the disruption of their banks. Gosh we are meaning something after Brexit came true…

Go Donald!!! 

I spent months being attacked because I never doubted Donald Trump would have been the 45th President of America. And today, like and more the day after the BrExit, I am in utter joy for my power of forecasting. We risked a lot, world order was totally at stake. I wouldn’t have tolerated to see…

The strings of World Order. Today’s caveats and hopes

I feel very negative vibes in the air and another world war approaching depending on three major events. Strangely people are allowed to express their opinion in two of them, but I am aware of the fact that the two countries I’m going to talk about are not like the United Kingdom – which country…

The New Monsters

Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin occupy securely the role of the new monsters, of the aliens plunged by the darkest meanders of history to populate the nightmares in our dreams. Let’s look deeper with Marco Tarchi’s analysis.

Bad Men Do What Good Men Dream

A forensic psychiatrist illuminates the darkest side of human behavior.    Before getting to talk about the book and the reason I’m thinking about crime at 1am on the 16th of August, I’m taking a step back. How this interest in criminology started I don’t know, I would have never said that I could read,…

I could easily have been there…

But I was not.  It’s shocking to see a place where you have a lot of happy memories – on skates with my parents as a child, on romantic and chilly Sunday promenades etc. – shaken by a horror like this. It’s shocking to know that I could easily have been there with a group…

BrExit o BrexIn?

   http://www.boursorama.com/actualites/brexit-pourquoi-une-telle-conviction-du-maintien-sur-les-marches-et-chez-les-bookmakers-3f1e75f7bd26cad2f7bd611540e1c114 I bet YES!  Ieri sera ho fatto una scommessa con l’ex sindaco di Livorno, una persona che apprezzo molto nonostante la diversa partigianeria politica. Ovviamente abbiamo ben potuto scommettere su due esiti opposti: lui dice la Gran Bretagna resta nel’ UE, io dico che vince il sì per uscirne. A sentire anche adesso…
