Mykonos: food guide to the island’s most famous Cycladic

Among the most typical fish is cooked red mullet in a pan with tomato, race served with garlic mashed potatoes and grilled octopus. In some Greek islands, and one of them is Mykonos, the freshly caught octopus, whole or after separating the tentacles, is put to “bake” in the sun for a day before being barbecued. It seems that this type of preparation, once used by fishermen to keep the octopus making dry for days, is the secret behind its soft flesh

Mykonos needs no introduction. Considered the most festive of the Cyclades islands, decades gay-friendly, it is also one of the most expensive destinations. The fact remains that can make everyone happy: those who want to get lost in deserted beaches contemplating the sunset, those who love to dance with the music blaring in clubs on the sea (see the famous Paradise and Super Paradise Beach), those who love to shop as it was in the city center. But we recommend Mykonos, preferably in low season, not only for its windmills and the spectacular succession of houses of 18th century Alefkantra neighborhood, or “Little Venice.” Here you can also go hunting for local products such as fresh cheese (not the usual feta!), Ancient spirits, sweet semolina and organic wine. And especially from the old port of Mykonos you can be reached in just 30 minutes Delos, one of the most historic landmarks in the world. Unesco heritage since 1990, the mythology has it that Leto, pregnant by Zeus, it is hidden here to deliver nothing less than the twins Apollo and Artemis. An origin that is all a program and that almost makes negligible the fact that at some point in history this small island of only 3.4 square kilometers has been free port, independent city-state and probably the most market of Greece.

Robin Williams was not depressed, but was seriously ill

So the wife of the great actor who committed suicide on 11 August last year in an interview with ABC News: “He would have died within three years, and after a terrible form of dementia, whose course had already started. It was a very brave man but he knew he was going crazy ”


Robin Williams had serious health problems that would kill him within three years if he had decided to commit suicide. This was revealed in his first interview since the actor died on August 11 last year, was the wife Susan Schneider in a long and dramatic interview with ABC News. “We were living a nightmare,” said the woman to the transmission `Good Morning America’, telling that her husband was” disintegrating before my eyes “, in the weeks before his death.

DISEASE – The actor of the fleeting moment, who had been diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease, it was also affected by a neurodegenerative disease known as dementia with Lewy bodies (DLB), caused by deposits of an abnormal protein to ‘ interior of brain cells, which disrupt the normal functions of the brain causing dementia, hallucinations, cognitive disorders, sudden changes in mental status and motor difficulties. Symptoms, said the widow Williams “arise suddenly and without a precise order”, but revealed that the disease only at autopsy. “If he was lucky Robin would have maybe three more years of life. But it would have been hard years and with a good chance it would have been locked up,” said Susan again, remembering that in the months before the suicide, the actor suffered from attacks anxiety, muscle stiffness and motor due to which one day he bumped into a door by getting a deep head wound.
CAUSES – According to Susan, who said he had spent the last year trying to figure out what really killed her husband, was not then depression pushing Robin Williams to suicide. That was just one of about fifty symptoms of his illness. “Robin was aware that he was crazy and could not do anything about it, it was quite lucid and sober when he died.” Was facing its own problems, as best he could, the woman said, describing it as “the bravest man I’ve ever known.” Unfortunately, “Last month the dam broke. And why do not blame him even a bit ‘.” And when asked whether her husband’s suicide could be interpreted as a way to regain control, he replied: “In my opinion, yes.” Susan has finally told in tears, the last moments of the actor before his death. “I was going to bed, entered the room a few times and said, ‘Good night, my love’. Then he came back and took his iPad. I thought he was better. He repeated: ‘Good night’. And that It was the last time I saw him. “

Triumph: five new models for the coming year Home Hinckley has finally lifted the veil heir of Bonneville. With it the new Thruxton and the unprecedented Twin Street. Many innovations, without forgetting the past When a model is so successful it is always very difficult act to modernize it. It happened periodically in Ducati, with its Monster, or BMW, with the GS. Even more difficult, however, you get your hands on a motorcycle inspired by the past. If a model with “modern”, in fact, a good portion of the game can only thanks to the grafting of new technology, far more complicated the work of renovation when certain technical characteristics seems can not be questioned. A hard row to hoe, the same in which she found herself in front of Triumph when he began to turn over in his hands the projects of the good old Bonneville and her sisters (Thruxton, Scrambler). Two possible solutions – at least apparently. Number one: clean break with the past, no longer a motorcycle heritage, but a modern classic style Ducati Scrambler. Very current technology, lines partially inspired by the past, but a contemporary motion in all respects and as such perceived by the public. Option Two: a few tweaks and targeted, you do not change a winning team, just a couple of things not to continue selling a motorcycle than fifteen years old. Triumph, stunned everyone, chose a third way. The new Bonneville succeeds with a triple pike to maintain a close link with the past, proposing at the same time, truly innovative technical solutions, than the models that preceded it. A completely new bike, the chassis and the engine, which seems to give a renewed impetus to the Bonneville series, to a long and lasting (more) successful. Five models, new solutions Those whose mother Triumph has taken the veil in recent hours are even five different models. It starts with a new founder, the new Bonnie, now called T120, also available in Black version. At his side he debuted the new entry-level, lower airspace and different equipment: Street is called Twin. They are joined by two models sport setting: the Thruxton Thruxton and R. What changes? As anticipated, all. But some details more than others. Things like the new engine, which on Bonneville and Thruxton even reaches 1,200 cc and that, above all, is now presented with an unprecedented liquid cooling. A choice certainly suffered, the engineers of Hinckley, who did turn up their nose to the purists – for which the Bonneville is and must remain a motorcycle with air cooling – and that the spy photos that have been circulating had left a bit ‘ puzzled too. The presence of the radiator is, in fact, a rather discordant note, this type of bike. The end result, however, seems more than good and its size at the sight should be more than offset by a large gain, in terms of usability and performance. Figures released at the time concern only the couple: the Bonnie speaks of 105 Nm at 3,100 rpm, while the Thruxton – on which the 1200 has a higher compression ratio, an air box plus and a lighter crankshaft – the value stated is 112 Nm at 4,950 rpm. Also the Street Twin mounts a liquid-cooled engine, but in this case the cubic volume is 900 cc, with a maximum torque of 80 Nm at 3200 rpm (equal, according to Triumph, to 18% more, with respect to the units of the previous generation ) and consuming less than 36% compared to the Bonneville retiring. A bike that was not there And it is the Twin Street to give shape to a version that did not exist previously, in the family of the classic branded Triumph. Conceived as a model access to the range, it is distinguished, in reality, for peculiar characteristics. Its shapes remind us with pleasure some of the more special that we preferred, in recent years, as the Clubman LSL (which is the real basis of Kawasaki, but so be it). It has a lower seat and a smaller engine than the sisters. A bike easier, particularly suited to beginners and, in the minds of men Triumph, it should be the preferred choice for those who want to give themselves to customization wildest. Not surprisingly, the range of accessories includes over 150 special three pre-packaged kits: Scrambler, Brat Tracker and Urban. For all, so much electronic Among the most important technical innovations is the epochal leap forward made by the new motion from the point of view of electronics. The choice of the field was made: yes to a full ride by wire, with customization options that follow. All five bikes have so at least two different driving modes: the “road” and “rain”. The Thruxton also map “sport”. All also they come with traction control (switchable on Thruxton), Abs series, slipper clutch, six-speed gearbox and a USB connection on the dashboard for charging phones / navigation / whatever. Strong seriously Among the most interesting things about the new bike there is also the presence of the variant R, the Thruxton. If the basic version proves to be a motorcycle really enjoyable, in terms of driving (at least on paper), the sister peppery leaves foretaste fled to the mountains as if they are long, with a bike finally, really, road (and not on a SBK to hold off), from the line very well managed and the components extremely interesting. R mounts, in fact, a Showa Big Piston front, Öhlins shock absorbers at the rear, marked radial Brembo monoblock calipers, double disc and Pirelli Diablo Rosso Corsa. All for a power that would be around hundred horses and a weight we imagine quite content. Real pleasure. With the dome-style Ducati Paul Smart – optional – even more so. And among the accessory kit already designed by Triumph there is one – the R Thruxton Race Performance – specially designed for driving on the track. Not bad, right? Then? So beautiful there, Triumph. We really like the new bikes. We do not know how to go but we can imagine – and we expect things like “good”. No information has yet been made about the prices. Keep in mind that Bonnie have always had a large market even on second and there is, therefore, why Triumph has decided to “sell off” these models. There will certainly cheapest stuff on the market but, eye, should be worth it.

Sunday back to the time of day, noise and tips to stay healthy

Clocks back one hour in the night between Saturday and Sunday. The expert: “No backlash for most people.” Here’s how to behave if you suffer from insomnia. Also at the table
Clock back in the night between Saturday 24 and Sunday 25 October for the return to standard time, with shorter days and the dark: for one day you can laze 60 minutes more but for those who usually have trouble sleeping increases the hardships . The change – will take place at 3 am, which will become the second – in fact affects the circadian rhythms that regulate important physiological activities, first of all the sleep-wake cycle. “Bring back the clock back an hour is generally not a problem, since there is a time lag is likely to affect significantly the biological clock and the daily habits,” explains Francesco Peverini, scientific director of the Foundation for Research and treatment of sleep disorders Onlus. “It becomes, however, for the 10% of the population already suffering from disorders such as insomnia and sleep apnea, for which the first step to summer, in the spring, and then the return to winter time, in the fall, is an additional element of concern to the already uneasy relationship with sleep and its cycles. For these people any difficulties with changes in day-night rhythm is not a simple change in the well-being, but a real silent suffering. ”
ADVICE – In any case, even if the time of day is not a problem to most people, a good “sleep hygiene” is always helpful. “The first suggestion is to maintain a normal sleep on Saturday night, when clocks will be set back, and wake up in the morning as usual hours” recommends Professor Peverini. “Secondly, we must remember that the sun rises an hour earlier, better then block light and keep the bedroom dark until she woke up. The light that manifests in advance of a regular schedule can disrupt your sleep. It is better to go to sleep in a dark room. Upon awakening, however, take much light as possible because it helps to wake up and helps regulate the biological clock. ”
MEAL – The expert points out that the phototherapy (light therapy) is an effective treatment of Seasonal Affective Disorder (Das), typical of this period and some forms of depression. At the table, then, the foods are preferred mainly bread, pasta, rice, lettuce, radicchio, some fresh cheeses, pumpkin, turnips and cabbage, besides the hot milk and fruit sugar. The evening should instead be avoided processed foods or overly seasoned. Also advised against liquor, chocolate and drinks high in caffeine and protein. The time of day will remain in force until the last Sunday in March, which in 2016 will fall on the 27th, a date which coincides with Easter. That night we sleep less then … but there is time to prepare for the idea.

Lose weight eating? Nothing is impossible

Playing sports, finding the right balance at the table, avoiding the excesses and go shopping in a smart way: continue to be good forks without guilt is really possible. Here’s some advice

To lose weight you need to stay really thin? It is not always so. Except in cases very difficult to recover, you can lose weight while continuing to eat. Of course, the important thing is finding the right balance between fast and almost absolute great feasts, poles apart in ways of sharing the same danger level of negative effects for our body.

Frequent snacks and condiments modest
The first useful advice to eat a nod to the scale, therefore, is not to be limited to only two daily meals. Better, however, make frequent snacks, perhaps based on fruit. An apple or a banana mid-morning, for example, and an orange or carrot in the afternoon can quench your hunger without sweat excessively and without compromising the line. Also at the table, before the main meal, you can start with a nice salad as a starter to start the digestion in advance and foster a sense of satiety. To remember, however, that the sauce too threatens to ruin any kind of effort against the bacon.

Goodbye cocktails
The fibers contained in rice, whole wheat pasta and cereals, help in the same way to satiate before salad. And eat the right also helps the proper functioning of the digestive and intestinal activity. However, what we must avoid is alcohol. A glass of wine at the table is granted, a pint of beer a day definitely not. And the spirits? Who poses the question is decidedly off-road. In short, better to say goodbye to cocktails if you want to lose weight without changing their habits.

Avoid skipping meals
Skipping meals, then, is a very grave error, but also among the most frequent for people trying to lose weight. Metabolism is like a sponge: If you fast for lunch, in the evening you could eat a whole fridge without even chewing anything. Set aside the food at noon, then, it is likely to increase the feeling of hunger during the rest of the day and that’s not very good, because it forces the body to absorb more nutrients as soon as possible. In other words, skip lunch means finding not stop over eating, because constantly hungry, soon as you return home from the office.

Sport is the best diet
No diet, too, can lead to satisfactory results without the right amount of physical activity. And also because this train speeds up your metabolism and allows you to burn more calories. Sport, then, is an ally of a healthy diet, which is good that they find little space saturated fats from meat consumption. Better, then, to prefer products of the sea, without excluding the rest. A diet that completely eliminates something, in fact, is difficult to correct diet.

The foods are essential for the proper balance
Finally, if you want to play it safe, the foods that should always be at the table for dining but then complains constantly with partners of their own weight, are for example cucumbers, celery, asparagus, broccoli, cabbage, lean meats, tomatoes, papaya and apples. These are natural foods that can satisfy the right, provide nutrients useful to our body and live better. Eat and lose weight, in a nutshell, it is really possible. Just be a bit ‘more careful and complain less.

Get the selfie is a disease?

According to some studies, yes, insane narcissism and psychopathology behind the obsession for the self-portrait

Obsession of selfie has something pathological. It is the thesis of a study of 800 men by Jesse Fox, assistant professor of communication at Ohio State, and Margaret Rooney. The research titled “The Dark Triad” in reference to what Fox calls “not a nice personality constellation” in reference to the set of selfie and that would consist of “narcissism as an extreme focus on oneself”, “Machiavellianism as manipulation other “and” impulsiveness psychopathological selfless to others. ” A fairly bleak. But the news is full of incidents of people dying by accident or committed suicide because of a selfie, a sign that a fund “noir” – as claimed by Fox – can cloud up to that point, the reasoning so that some speak of “selficidio”.
The study published in Personality and Individual Differences believes that while the company is a formidable instrument of social relations, there is a niche of users that you have found a very big stage for his own narcissism.

Especially those who frequently change the picture on Facebook or Instagram may have narcissistic traits. Similar observations were reported last year in a study of 400 men and women published in Social Networking. Post photos on social can in many cases have a positive effect on their world of relationships and also on the psychological, and in any case are not the company, according to experts, because of narcissism, but rather an opportunity to make it emerge. Never before in history have we been able to get in touch with millions of people through a photo at such low cost. For clinicians all have a touch – and even more – of narcissism, but there is a narcissism “good” or “bad” one that immerses you to the point in selfie edge of a cliff to fall down.

Alternative and fashionable at the same time, able to attract fans of architecture and of course people who expect sea and nightlife, the island of windmills (survivors) and Paradise beaches, in name and in fact, remains a must of summer .

Like the celebrities and lovers of cheese, lovers of wild nights and lovers of Cycladic architecture. First refuge of pirates, then stop on the itinerary between Woodstock and Kathmandu, today synonymous with high society and transgression, Mykonos has a historical vocation of a natural camouflage and fashionable.

The narrow streets of Chora steep climb overflowing with restaurants and shops, while the elegant Alefkandra called Little Venice, deploys its multicolored houses on stilts, coveted destinations at sunset. A little farther on, check a giant meringue plywood is Panagia Paraportiani, a fifteenth century church consists of four chapels on the ground floor and one upstairs, so close to each other as to seem fused. The other place of worship on the island architecturally interesting is the Orthodox monastery of Panagia Tourliani century, which, with its beautiful doors red stands in the sleepy village of Ano Mera, among the hills of the interior.

For a day trip away from the crowds you can choose between Kea, Andros and Tinos, green mulberry trees, olive trees, oaks and fragrant pine trees. It starts from the old harbor, Ghialos, with the blessing of Petrus, the photogenic pelican, a descendant of a long line of mascots of the island, which oversees the lively fish market.

Because in the 80s he weighed less than today

A search of the York University of Toronto revealed that a twenty-five today weighs on average between 5 and 10% in more than one of his ancestors ’70s and’ 80s. And the cause, it seems, is to be found between the table and the bed

In the 80-dominated outfits exercise of Fame (and the vain attempts of many girls to replicate the ballets of Flashdance) it was easier to stay in shape. So says a study by a team of researchers from York University in Toronto, who analyzed data collected between 1971 and 2008 approximately 36,400 Americans: the investigation has shown that, in particular between 1988 and 2006, The average body mass index of the adults has risen by as much 2.3 kg / m², with the same physical activity, eating habits and calories assimilated daily. What does this mean? Simple, that a twenty-five today weighs between 5 and 10 percent more of its consideration of the 70s and 80s. Despite devote the same time to the sport and eat the same things.

Something, then, has changed in our lives, going to affect the metabolism of our body. Sure, a genetic component has to be considered, as well as the daily habits: lack of sleep – which contribute stress and abuse of technology – can facilitate weight gain.

Among the other factors identified by the research, we find the possible exposure to chemical agents, which can have a direct effect on the hormones that regulate metabolism, and the use of drugs (antidepressants, for example, interfere significantly on the assimilation of mass fat). Then there is one last issue that affects the intestinal flora: more presence of meat in our diet and the intake of substances such as sweeteners can affect the presence and the work of microorganisms that convert the food in our intestines.

Apple and Google, not on my car

 
Want to see that the end is right Harald Wester? The German engineer in charge of Alfa Romeo and Maserati, to my observation on the dearth of driver assistance systems and connectivity of Ghibli, replied with an eloquent “so do not use them no.”

Confirming the words of Wester arrives in these hours from the United States: according to the report Drive (Driver Vehicle Interactive Experience) JD Power, 20% of the holders of a new car has never used 16 of the 33 board devices taken into consideration by the study. For a customer of 5, half of today’s technologies mounted on a car would be useless.

Americans also indicate a ranking of the systems less appreciated: services on board (43%), wi-fi router (38%), automatic parking (35%), head-up display (33%) and installed apps directly the House (32%).

Not only. At the expense would be even more trendy CarPlay Apple and Google Android Car: despite the race car industry to chase the giants of Silicon Valley, systems that replicate the contents of your smartphone, do not seem to hit the mark at least one-fifth of the participants in the research. It does not do anything that you call Apple and Google. Sign that the guide will continue to be associated with the cell with the inevitable security risks.

Luckily there are also more positive news, especially for investment billionaires automotive industry: according to the report American drivers appreciate more systems of safety and driving pleasure as on-board diagnostics, the alert of a vehicle in the blind spot and the adaptive cruise control. Encouraging results for the cars to autonomous driving. For all due respect to Wester.

Scent of lions in the sun

And at sunset, the aroma of nostalgia. Noble without the claws and his dudes film, here is Positano. A past still alive of Russian dancers, Marquis communist soldiers

R600x__positano

Vincenzo Caprile (1856-1936), “The square in Positano”
The scent of citrus is Positano. Noise is by speedboat, Riva Aquarama. “You must see the movie of Vittorio Caprioli, ‘Leoni in the sun’, was all so,” he says Alessandro Piperno, expert lover places. A Riva stands on his resounding “With the worst intentions,” not minimalist novel ten years ago, set a little here.

The film, however, is 1961, it is strange how all of those Caprioli; partly as a light comedy and then it becomes a melancholy devastating. The plot: a young lady of the north (Franca Valeri) is a journalist of tourism elegant that runs into a bad to live in tight shirts and tight pants and colorful. Here a group of local boys seek remedy for boredom and adulthood trying to conquer feminine, and possibly foreign yacht. “It ‘a beautiful film,” he says Piperno. “It was also written by Raffaele La Capria, the following year for the Witch ‘Mortally wounded’, and was mistaken for a movie seaside. While it is staging the summer of these debauched but compared to the films of the genre have forty years. ” And the phase difference of age makes the surreal tone-pathetic. “It is actually played on the great silences” Piperno continues; around a Philippe Leroy athletic jumping on the rocks and steals jewelry ladies American succhiandoglieli during hand-kissing perfect. Around, the young elders who study non-work.

Going down to the beach of Positano the sets are all there, as the few Aquarama now supplied to the grand hotel. Next to the two bronze lions that watch over the staircase, there is the Buca di Bacco hotel-bar-restaurant where much of the film was shot. Sasa Rispoli, now owner, the film was a bespectacled boy, whose Lions concupivano mother with the excuse to teach swimming. “I was eleven years old and crazy about this crew that was filming, I collected the coals of the arc lamps, the electrodes, the power lines, I felt like the child of ‘Cinema Paradiso'”, said today at the sheet. “There were wires everywhere, and terminals, and if there bumping hte shock. Vittorio Caprioli was staying here in the hotel with us, he was a friend of my father, and spent here the last weekend of his life. They met with a grand prix on television, on a Sunday, then he returned to Naples and died. ”

The father, in an initial stage, he was – well – itself, that is a hotelier annoyed umpteenth request to “mark” the costs of these insolvent out of time, and their phone calls. “Miss me give Naples eighteen-twenty-thirty” Caprioli says in the film, to be called “The gentleman Mimi,” that is then Philippe Leroy. Denial of the maid, intimate: “I’ll take all responsibility”, because wake in the morning, these lions in the sun, could be dangerous.

“It was a film that we made to gently tease the little dudes Positano, that were really so,” he says today La Capria. “Their only activity was thinking every day to find somewhere that would make them become popular.” “There was the brother of La Capria, Pelos, famous for its mated, had colored the Blue Grotto of Capri with yellow markers that were used in the Navy, and then he also painted the two lions here orange” Rispoli remembers junior. “Another time with a friend, disconnected the letterboxes and threw into the sea, and spread all the postcards to tourists in the waves. The police gave him several times the expulsion order. ”

The Lions, that is the true bronze lions, “there are always at least the nineteenth century,” he says Fausta Aquila Gaetani d’Aragona, who along with her sister Raimonda has defined the style of Positano majolica sgarrupate the right, and lemons bougainvillea, in his sublime terrace and sagging, as in a villa a little ‘Downton Abbey a bit’ principles of Salina, psychoanalyst and her husband, Massimo Amman, and many dogs.

Gaetani here are among the first to arrive, through matrilineal line Pattison (perhaps because in Positano children do not work, but the mothers are beaten very) basic English industrial railway, which in the early twentieth century have bought so many houses and a tower . And coupled Naples-England has created a strange hybrid of the wasp Positano and a caste society still working perfectly: each hotel belongs to a family of a strictly local, with a lot of respect for and ranks of nobility, antiquity of lineage, stars , in-room amenities and if below on the beach there is the Buca di Bacco of Rispoli, pop outpost, there especially on Le Sirenuse, compound maximum sciccheria; He is in front of the house Gaetani, in this golden mile of Positano.

The scenes that were filmed at Buca are shot here: in this ultimate luxury hotel, where the Anglo-Americans in costumes with small patterns read in sunglasses tortoiseshell the Financial Times by the pool cilestrina faded, and seems to be in a “Leopard” photographed by Slim Aarons. Here he was on vacation even Bepy Sonnino, Great Gatsby jew book Piperno, inspired by a grandfather who wanted to live at most, and then here. In the book the Sonnino take even the whole hotel. “We were a tribe. Twist. Bathrooms midnight. Hectoliters of alcohol. Poker until five in the morning. It was great. ” Bepy Sonnino, with choice of field, diagnosed with prostate cancer, will prefer to enjoy to the full rather than abandon the conquest, old lion in the sun. “His death is very similar to that of my grandfather in the reality,” said Piperno. “He was diagnosed with cancer that would have dealt a blow to his manhood, he chose to disregard and died at sixty-three years.”

Eros and elder burl, Bepy Sonnino hurtling into Jaguar from Rome-center to Sirenuse, who knows how much time he spent (we at Audi three hours dry). Now we are hurtling into Jaguar Alessandro Cecchi-Paone, journalist and television presenter, who recently president of San Vito-Positano, the local football team. He has a house in the town on high, and he also has a memory of grandparents vitalists, however, in 1100. “My grandfather, a widower, selected girlfriends bringing in Positano. From how they behaved here, you could see if they were the right ones, “he says now-Cecchi Paone. “In fact, with his second wife fell in love here.”

Cecchi-Paone has tried to bring some ‘of modernity in the feud anglonapoletano; trying a little Mykonos, with evenings gay friendly to Music on the Rocks, only disco of Positano, built into the rock, and the property of another dynasty, better known as the Russian Black (owners of local restaurants, Chez Black, Rada and the fact Disco). But without much success: without controversy, the feud ended: Non Expedit. So it was back to normal, and the disco is proceeding very Positano, and Peppe Russian, or rather Black Peppe, invests heavily in safety, and in front of us kindly chased by a group of tourists privé very liquid, and tipsy. We’re not at Cocoricò.

“I do not understand this music,” sighs however Sasa Rispoli on the terrace of Buca. He also has a glorious past as a DJ, disco here a time in the tavern. “They do not know how to interpret the mood of the track. And ‘the whole technique. Do not put the lenses, the lenses were fundamental. A Vanoni, a Mina, was necessary at some point, or else went crazy too. The slow must also encourage the talk, now we no longer speak, “he says in a tone expert. “At Buca went down barefoot, there were only friends, or strangers,” said Fausta Gaetani. “It was wonderful.”

“Here on the music booms,” says Carla instead Paravicini Sersale, dynasty of Sirenuse, higher still, watching the feuds, down, populated by modernity. “Do not they understand that it is an amphitheater?”. The hotel began as a former home of the Marquis Sersale, and Carla is doing to place tents, because some fundamental VIP seems to have been photographed here, and Positano there that violate the privacy, kings and queens and Hollywood actors because they are protected (the Queen of Belgium continues to come, last year Roman ladies enthusiastic discovered Richard Gere as near the spa designed by Gae Aulenti).

A Sersale, Paul, Marquis but the Communist Party, was also mayor for 40 years, in a place traditionally destrissimo (first monarchical, now the mayor Michele De Lucia, maximum fish wholesaler of coastline, is headed for a civil list linked to Brothers of Italy). Father of his country, transformed Positano. As told Franco Sersale Paolo Guzzanti of the Republic, exactly thirty years ago, there was a typhus epidemic because the water was very impure, and “General Clark will fottette fear. I went and my brother: general, told him, here or do the ‘aqueduct, or we’ll all die, as pests in the seventeenth century. Clark gives a little order to the aqueduct. And the country was enriched. Why Paul, my brother, had a little stacked the deck: he said that Positano was home to seven people. Instead we were only two thousand. Thanks to that trick from jail quite have five extra rations and those were paying workers: flour in exchange for work, and finally seized the pipe clean water: the English were happy to Positano emerged from the Middle Ages. ”

“Here the luck of the place was that it was chosen by General Clark, chief of Allied as a base camp,” he says Rispoli, and so many Americans returned home handed down by word of mouth the word Positano more effective than an advisor. The result then is that today the Italian is only a third language in Positano: first are the Neapolitan and English (spoken well with accents right, you say “sir” and “good afternoon” and not “coach” as the waiters wretches in Rome).

As John Steinbeck wrote in an article sull’Harper’s Bazaar in 1953, the Sirenuse are also the islets off Positano later renamed the Gauls, outpost of the lodging dancing Positano: formerly owned by Massine, maximum dancer of the Ballets Russes, student Daghilev, then bought by Rudolf Nureyev, the evening took a Riva and it did lead to Naples to do all his stuff back haggard, like Pasolini with Alfa. Today Li Galli belong to a businessman Sorrento, Giovanni Russo, who has purchased five billion pounds and now ask two hundred fifty million euro.

In “Lions in the sun”, Franca Valeri was finally brought to the Gauls by Philippe Leroy, but grimly went there to other trades female. Flavia De Luise, historical hairdresser Positano, while responding in perfect English to the customers “give my regards to your mother, dear,” she says today of when combing the Franca, who “wanted the hair absolutely straight, then down to do this tuft she still carries. ” And then a story that seems “Parigi o cara”, another film of the duo-Caprioli Valeri: “We went to my sister and I with a training visit to L’Oreal. But they were all of northern Italy, Milan, Domodossola, so we made fun of, treated us down. Then one day he stopped in front of the St. Honore Feaubourg a spider driven by the owner of a famous brand of champagne, which of course was always in Positano, and he, with this machine very luxurious, and the cache-col, we made a lot of parties and the others were very badly. ”

Russian dancers, Marquis Communists and American soldiers are the pieces of the recipe of Positano: it works fine, even better than Capri, the rival to twenty minutes by hydrofoil. Trade, well, everything else: nothing but the notorious global brand pieces hanging from balconies and shops and shops and tourists must pass through virtually (Positano course vu ‘cumprà is not covered). The pieces also have a pedigree emblazoned: “The Duchess has invented Laura Carafa d’Andria,” he says Gaetani. The duchess, however, “did not understand anything about money, and failed, because confounded the revenue with gains,” wrote Guzzanti. “When cashed, spending all the money for himself, and to the grievances of suppliers screamed: ‘immoral, but how dare they! I m’aggio bought beauty creams in Paris’. ” The duchess then failed, but was born the textile district of Positano from the balcony; firmly in the hands of local, because here in Positano, unlike Capri, has prevented the landing of the global brand. Or Gucci or Prada or Vuitton. “The Valley has tried to buy a shop down the streets” says Fausta always Gaetani. “After hearing the figure offered, they told him: learned, thanks a lot, this money we make them here.”

Compared to Capri, then, here “there dresses,” says Tonino Minniti, architect and artist. Nothing sweaters and cardigans, banned initials. “Positano is as it were immersed in a kind of spell. It ‘a place closed, incredibly feeble, tiring, it’s like a Greek island. And ‘bohemian “(Piperno). Still Steinbeck: “I can not see, here, a languid tourist rustling in fresh white dress. I challenge any lady to climb the stairs to Positano dressed like that, for a cocktail: arrive as a sheet of kitchen. He not the left but climb, wherever want to go. And this is enough to eliminate at least one type of tourists: those from the window. ”

Something has changed since then: “This citrus scent that you feel is fake, is sprayed with the speakers,” he says expert, showing the bottles on the window sills of the stores. But Positano continues to choose his clients. Get remains difficult: in the car, on the way from Naples, with curves and traffic jams may be made for slow arrival visions heartbreaking Gulf. And then ztl Nazi, and in addition to nostalgia, the core business of car parks, multi-storey, massive, expensive, overlooking a valley inside, a kind of framework or structure on which rests the Marxist superstructure aristocratic crib Positano. The machine, however, better forget it, and our A3 Cabrio that here at last we can show off with the roof open much admired, it will remain in a stand-prohibitive. Getting to the sea, is no longer simple. In the cockpit of his jet LNG unit, the commander Giuseppe De Gennaro maneuvering with difficulty, because “Positano has a pier, just a landing.” As the sea is big, the airport is closed because there is no dock. Ie the hydrofoil enters between bathers, goiters, inflatables, spears Sorrento. And some Riva. And in the twilight, between the smell of oil, along with that perhaps fake lemon, it is the aroma of nostalgia of Positano.

Holidays in Albania, boom departures from Bari

 

Records of transits in the port of Bari last weekend: 61 thousand passengers and 14 thousand cars with favored destinations Albania, Greece, Croatia and Montenegro. Three out of four passengers transited from Bari and only a third on the way, and the missing destinations grew, above all, Albania, 66% of the total, followed, in the second half, from Greece, 24%, and for the remainder, 10%, from Croatia, especially, and by Montenegro.
