Urban exploration. Monte Soratte: tunnel rats in Nazi gold hunt

Urban exploration. Monte Soratte: tunnel rats in Nazi gold hunt
Monte Soratte: a maze of subterranean galleries and stories of treasure hunters, intrigue and the legendary gold of the Nazi Field Marshal Albert Kesselring
The Soratte is a mountain rich of mystery and history. According to locals, the line of its crest would resemble the profile of Benito Mussolini (Mount of the Duce, author’s note): the mountain and its legends entrails, intrigues and mysteries continue to walk a tight maze of tunnels.
Fortress eighteenth century meters high at forty kilometers from Rome Soratte hosts, on the surface, a lush nature park and in the belly a maze of tunnels, built since 1937. After the armistice of 8 September 1943 and followed the occupation of German troops, the structure becomes the command center of the OKW (Wehrmacht Ober Kommando); Then, after the war, the continuing military activities with NATO (on the access gates to the bunker and tunnel is clearly visible the four-pointed star). According to some sources, up to 70 Mt was supposed to host the leaders of the Italian government in case of nuclear attack.
Mystery In the night between 1 and 2 April 1944, a column of trucks of SS comes from the nearby town of Sant’Oreste at the foot of the Soratte, with the headlights off.
Aboard seventy-eight cases; ground, eighteen soldiers who download the material and hidden in the mountain. Gunfire and an explosion: the crates end up still underground along with porters, “witnesses” uncomfortable. But, under the corpses, still it moves someone who ….
… A few years after the end of the war it gets caught by the Italian authorities while digging near the church of Sant’Oreste. In his “Nazis on the run” (Mondadori, 2014) Arrigo Petacco reconstructs the story of Willy Vogt: only team survivor buried with crates, Vogt is careful not to go back to the department and deserts. Before walking away from the mountain, however, hides in the church a map with directions to get back to the place of burial. And to take revenge
The bad end “gold hunters” who escaped the massacre has the map and authorization of Italians to dig, provided that recognizes any findings to our Government. The German returns for a short time in Germany, with a promise to get to work as soon as possible to recover the material. Yeah, but that’s in the boxes? Twenty-three of the one hundred and seventeen tons of gold stolen by German troops, precious from the Bank of Italy and the pockets of the Roman Jews, persecuted and deported. If the map is the “X” where to dig, Willy the pick will never plant it: gather the charred in his car, in Hamburg. Accident? Who knows! Our meanwhile, do not make progress, and in 1962 the Ministry of Defense decided to ban any excavation operation in the area.
The real treasure of the Soratte is the natural park, accessible with a ticket a few Euros with the visit to the galleries. Yeah, because some of those tunnels has been returned to the public interest by the Free Cultural Association Santorestese “Bunker Soratte” And, believe me, it is a real treat for us “urban explorer” enthusiasts. Like tunnel rats of the Vietnam War, I move in “underground” of history, crossing testimonies of different eras: the writing on the wall surfaces that called for calm and silence (1940-1943 period); signs in German and trucks and Allied arms. World War II and the Cold War “told” by helmets, suits, jeep, anti-aircraft batteries, machinery sometimes perfectly preserved, sometimes devoured by time and rust.
Council? Go there, it’s worth it. And maybe, before turning on the engine and set the browser, you scroll through the gallery of the Association, just to let you be the healthy one watering curiosity that never hurts. If, then, you would like to learn more about the story of Vogt and gold Kesselring, besides the aforementioned “Nazis on the run”, get Italy, Treasure Land (Petacco, De Santis, de Agostini Geographical Institute, 1987) and L ‘island of Kesselring.

The best place to go in London

Clubs and restaurants with show in Mayfair: exclusive, new and super frequented by Royal classics, models, celebrities, cool people. The GQ map

The night is still young in London. And you really have the feeling that the word “fun” has a complete meaning. Because here increased, with more fabulous local, trendy, extreme, exclusive. The point is: Are you cool enough to get in? Or, at least, you can look like?

GQ has been for you in the most exclusive club in Mayfair, and this is the map (with its type I catch any) that you’ve drawn. Sort of a seven-pointed star that shines around Piccadilly, the navel of the world where the British, at least for one night, you’re going to spend all always.

Coya
It is the newest of the members’ club in Mayfair and is, surprise, open to the public: really. Just book a dinner with ceviche and a thousand other goodies on the grill or in the oven. The Coya and you can try the best Peruvian cuisine in Europe. A fascinating mix between Japan and Latin America. Usually just one round of Pisco, the liquor that is drunk in the best of Lima bars to be projected across the world will see.

It seems to throw down peach juice and instead. However after the second succeed certainly making fools with Chinese broker who macerate lubina clasico from green saucer of ceviche bar. Ah, and there is also a live orchestra, The Collective Coya makes ska, reggae, funk music. Even on a Tuesday night whatever.

Aqua Spirit
If pecks the evening where it does not rain, and it can happen in London from April to August, climbs to the Regent street-fifth of the 240 plan and you have the whole West End at your feet. In short, from Aqua Spirit, the view is by fear and even if the price of cocktails is a bit ‘higher than usual to know that, at least, you can giocarvela with a chance of Mayfair advocates and City Boys who come here to try with lanky blonde with prominently merchandise. Which, in these parts, it happens just tick a ray of sunshine. Ideal for a cocktail at sunset or a drink to warm the evening on the terrace. Around the circular bar where you mix miraculous waters (hence Aqua Spirit) will make meetings level, because this is considered one of the most glamorous places of the London nightlife.

Tape
If Nicki Minaj was in a certain city would increase from Tape. Nay, from Little Tape: it is the coffer of the club open in 2015 at Hanover Square. Yes, we are in Piccadilly, but it seems to stay in Manhattan in one of those little special places frequented by MC in Hip Hop, black starlets in minichepiùmininonsipuò, bling bling galore style. I mean, last Tuesday I tripped in Will.i.am of the Black Eyed Peas and I risked that his bodyguard would make me disappear from the face of the earth. A little farther Cara Delevingne was doing a selfie (see gallery). Ah, there is also a room to record discs and the walls hung memorabilia Paul McCartney, Elvis Presley and Kurt Cobain. The waiter poured champagne seminude dancing in disco room and techno music at Marietta and, occasionally, go see Paloma Faith or Dallas Austin, the club’s owner and winner of several Grammy: is the producer of Madonna, Duran Duran, Rihanna, Gwen Stefani.
Although there are already here return will not disappoint. Because Sketch remains one of the most fabulous places in the world. Was the headquarters of the Royal Institute of British Architects before Pierre Gagnaire (3 Michelin stars) and the great visionary restaurateur Mourad Mazouz (Momo) decided to transform this magnificent building of 1779 in a posh palace intended to celebrate art, food, music, fun. Revitalized with generous pink brushstrokes by Martin Creed in 2012 the restaurant is still chock full of girls who come to celebrate professional promotions, birthday parties, special events. Ideal land of conquest.

The Box
To get in you must have: 1) patience; 2) fancy something quite different; 3) the right contacts. Or do you offer immediately a tip to the boy plenty of guest list and see what’s up. Usually works, if we continue to keep him in good spirits during the evening with a few drinks, maybe it could become your BFF. Anyway. Box to do music hall (or varied): burlesque, in fact. And sometimes also it happens to find transgender able to make his stomach turn with extreme sex shows (including the show bodily fluids). For the series, debauched for one night. This is the European branch of the legendary New York Box and admitted that manage to find ways to slip in without burning a mortgage payment in one evening you might meet Hollywood stars, members of the Royal Family (yes), sinners / sinful very sexy .

The Cuckoo Club
Yes, it’s the Cuckoo club, but the avian theme has little to do. It is two floors of rock and techno + super food in the middle of West End music: is it possible? Of course, it is a gentlemen’s club: from Cuckoo you enter only if accompanied by a member, but we are sure that you will find the way to know one. Otherwise choose a day of the week (not weekend), dress cool and, above all, be cool. It’s worth? Be ‘, the place is a little’ kitsch, but the waitresses are provocative, the retro atmosphere and girls have the right attitude for a spectacular evening. Were you outside? Then try to book a table at the restaurant, kind around 18. We are in London, the sooner the better chance you will have of getting one free. Once inside you will find a way to have fun.

Charlie
To restore it we have invested one billion Euros, so that was the most expensive change of look of 2015. Charlie is a super exclusive club, loved by rock stars and supermodels. It has a series of secret tunnels, private rooms, mysterious revenue. If you can get yourself a whiskey at the bar are good.

Aircraft, fly in the cabin with your dog, now you can with Delta Airlines

Temperature controlled, kennels for rest and bowls with water and food here is how the Delta Cargo service revolutionizes the transport rules of animals on airplanes

Although veterinarians make this impossible, we are sometimes obliged to bring our four-legged friend in flight with us. What to us may seem a trivial air travel, however, may become for him a real traumatic experience. Why the US company Delta Air Lines, which over the past decade has counted well 76 deaths of animals on its flights, has decided to completely revolutionize the transportation of dogs rule, cats & co.

Smaller specimens, as already happens on the aircraft of other companies, can be taken on board by the owner with the formula “Carry on pet”, provided that the carrier is the correct size. The news, however, is the formula “Delta Cargo”, designed especially for large animals, which in this way are no longer shipped in the hold as simple luggage. A skilled attendant airline deals with follow personally from check-in to boarding, which may occur on the same flight as the master or a twin flight with the same or similar landing zone.

The board temperature is controlled to avoid excess heat or cold in the different seasons, the staff is trained to intervene in case of sudden illnesses and for night journeys are available pet beds, bowls with food and space to stretch their legs.

Sure, the service – which is currently active only for domestic flights in the United States – must be booked at least two weeks in advance and has a cost, based on the weight of the animal: the journey from New York to Seattle, for example, can cost $ 250 for a pitbull and almost 900 for a Bernese mountain dog.
