The jumping Jackie

The jumping Jackie

The dog on the left to the other dog: “Hey Jackie, can you pick me up a bottle of beer please? I’m too short darn it…”

Jackie has been named after a famous lady from the early 60’s. Can you guess who? I failed miserably when the owner asked me the same question.

Il cane alla sinistra al cane alla destra: “Ehi Jackie, mi puoi prendere una birra per favore? Sono troppo basso maledizione…”

Jackie è stata chiamata così da una signora famosa degli anni ’60. Sapete dirmi chi? Io ho fallito miseramente quando il padrone me l’ha chiesto.

The ordinary-life fashion show

The ordinary-life fashion show

One thing that I love about this city is its narrow streets of cobblestones. Sometimes I stand still in the middle of one – enjoying the shade and the silence – and I try to guess what the person who’s about to appear at the far end of the street is going to be like. A real-life fashion show.

Una cosa che amo di questa città sono i suoi vicoli lastricati di sanpietrini. Ogni tanto mi ritrovo nel mezzo di uno di questi a godermi l’ombra e il silenzio e provo ad azzeccare le sembianze della prossima persona che comparirà alla fine della strada. Una specie di sfilata di moda della vita di tutti i giorni.

The man who was listening to Fred Buscaglione’s music

The man who was listening to Fred Buscaglione's music

This man was listening to some really old music. Since I enjoyed the song I asked him what it was and he said, “Oh this song is from another age.” Afterwards a young lady joined the conversation too and tried to guess the singer: “Is it Modugno?”. As the man heard that guess, he took the CD in his hand and prowdly showed it to us.
Read the awesome story of this Italian artist: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fred_Buscaglione

“Alongside his legacy in songs and movies Buscaglione deserves mention for having encouraged musicians and singers from the newer generation (the one influenced by the earliest forms of rock and roll) to stand up against the conservative producers and discographers of the time, demanding recognition for their art and their style. In this role he proved instrumental in the rise of the “yellers” scene which from the early 60s started to revolutionize the Italian popular music panorama.”

I wish Italian music was still as good as it used to be from Reinassance to the death of Fabrizio De André.
