The Neo-Realism Of Italy Today

Julian Vigo | Posted 29.09.2016 | UK Lifestyle

For what I was to learn in my years of living in the country is that Italians thrive at dialogue of all sorts--from discussing food while eating a meal (even planning the next meal) to debating every subject under the sun.  These representations in cinema of this aspect of Italian culture are replete in the films following neorealism, from Lina Wertmüller to Nanni Moretti.

It doesn't matter whether you support Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton, Malcolm Tucker or Kermit The Frog. No politician should receive such a favourable treatment at such a crucial time, when an interview like that can seriously shift the balance in the electorate.

Italy's Threat to Vegan Parents Is an Attack on Human Rights

Vegans are used to having their beliefs challenged, to having to work harder to get other people and institutions to accept their child's needs. As it is this needs to change, but threatening parents who are trying to give their children the best start in life with imprisonment is unacceptable.

Why Antonio Conte's 'Under the Radar' Chelsea Are on Their Way Back to the Top

Scott Saunders | Posted 20.07.2016 | UK Sport

You can't help but think this new Chelsea will be far more 'together' than they were in the opening months of last season. Mourinho's Chelsea were fractured; he'll have learned from his mistakes in his new role, but there'll be no more "palpable discord". Conte drives a hard bargain, and yes he's a little crazy, but he's respected.

Friday morning has been an historical date and a sad one at the same time, for me and for the other 600,000 Italians currently living in the UK. Obviously none of us were allowed to vote for Remain or Leave.

This Is Not OK

On hearing the Brexit result, my grandad texted me saying "Hopefully we'll find a way to fix things and make this OK". Like me he was shocked, disappointed and hurt that this was the choice made by such a significant proportion of Brits.

There's still time for Belgium's overhyped team to succeed in a way that England's never did. But the sand is running ever-faster through the hourglass - and Wilmots is not the man to flip it over.

Hearing a few decent tunes never fails to calm me down, keep me sane, reassure me that - in the words of The Killers - everything will be all right. So I made a playlist. Each tune on the playlist is from a different EU country.

Travelling With Young Children: It's Not to Make Marvellous Memories‏

Harmeet Kaur Sidhu

Why do I choose to travel so much with my young children? I want to share this love for what is available and possible in the world. I want to see their already big and sparkly eyes widen at brickwork bridges to admire river views upon, to share in their choices as they salivate over fabulous flavours in a gelato parlour.

I am Italian by birth, but I have lived in the UK for nigh on 23 years. I have been working, paying taxes and doing voluntary work in this country for 16 of those. My wife is British, and both of my children were born here. The UK is the place that I and my family call home.

La Dolce Vita

I worked really hard at that law firm, along with everybody else, and just scheduling in normal holidays could be challenging enough. Just before I got married and started a family, I left my law firm and moved into the public sector. While working life there was slower and gentler, long periods working from home in Italy definitely weren't on the cards.

Tips When in Rome

Rome is fantastic but as with every capital, it rarely shows the true national characteristics. For that you must scratch a little deeper. So if you get the chance, get yourself outside the cities to smaller communities.

From Rome With Love

I have a confession to make. I've fallen in love. The head over heels variety. But this time, it's not with a man; nor a woman, for that matter. It's with a city. It's with Rome. I have fallen completely and utterly in love with Rome; and I suspect it's going to be a life-long affair.

What Home Means to Me

My notion of home is not necessarily linked to a physical place or a nation to which I feel patriotic. If anything it has completely removed itself from the physical and now become nothing more and nothing less than a feeling.

Truth for Giulio Regeni

Is the UK government doing enough over the terrible case of Giulio Regeni? By "enough" I mean: is the governent putting any real time and effort into supporting the campaign to find out what really happened to this Cambridge University student who was abducted and tortured to death during his PhD research in Egypt?
