The smell of fried food. If you were to ask me what I identify Naples with, before the sea, the warmness, the fish, the pizza, the alleys, the poetry, the music, the people screaming from window to window. I would say the smell of fried food. Naples is my second home, having almost the whole… Continua a leggere “See Naples and die”
the final book is coming….
When someone I know writes a book it’s a problem. Yes, because it could be the masterpiece of the Century, but more likely I might not like it, but knowing the author, I face the dilemma: “should I be ruthless and tell him/her? Or should I play along with it?
Working as a freelance editor, I have to capture every flaw before every merit (and there are a lot in a book! Both: flaws and merits), so I get always a bit confused when someone I know tells me that he has written a book.
And if this person is my brother, and if, besides making me read a preview he also asks me to check it then the question becomes epic.
My brother has always been a great little genius, so I never had doubts that the book was well written and the plot was fluid.
But would I…

Personally, I grew up with this show, when it came out in 2002 I was sixteen … now I’m thirty … it’s easy to understand that now Lorelai, Rory, Luke, Sookie and the rest of the country, are part of my life, my family! So, I must admit , every time it is on tv, I find myself rewatching it, so much so that I could recite line by line some of the episodes.
And every time I watch an episode I get very hungry!!!
Is there any of you that never heard this theme? I can’t believe it, it’s impossible!
Willy-nilly it happened to everyone of us to listen to it and maybe even humming it, since on TV they give the replicas of “Gilmore Girls” one day in one day out!
Whether it is summer or winter, with rain, snow or the sun, it is in the schedules! A guarantee equal only to “Murders she wrote” and, despite this, every time it succeeds to make a share to envy the news around, despite we know all the jokes by heart we continue to watch the show, cause Stars Hollow is always a second home, you can’t avoid to fall in love with Jess(or Dean, or Chris, or Luke, or Logan, depends on your #ship) and remain glued to listen to the fast dialogues of the protagonists. Impossible to resist the…

I was about 11 years old; I was bored because I had already finished the new horror book in the series, I was crazy about; my father came to me and handed me a “grown-up” novel <read it, you’ll like it >.
If there is a person I trust in everything (especially when it comes to reading) it is my father, so I took this book, and without even asking him what it was about, I sat on the floor with my back against the radiator (habit that I still have today …) and I started it.
“After all, I killed only once every forty years. I had time to die, before the urge returned.”
Saturday afternoon in October, uncertain weather, neither hot enough to play outdoors, nor so cold as to want to take refuge inside, that weather that makes you go around dressed like a fool with snow boots and a tank top, so to speak.

the perplexed girl who lived in the boot, prepared the apple pie * in honour of Grimilde, here transformed into Regina
Once upon a time, in a boot-shaped wasteland, there was a girl perplexed by the fact that although they were inept and a bad example for little girls, the princesses of fairy tales always defeated the villains. […] This perplexed girl, growing up, had become more and more team-villains and she wanted alternative versions in which characters like Maleficent, Ursula, Jafar or Grimilde finally got the victory […] Desperate, the perplexed girl thought there was no hope, until one day her team-villains friend invited her to start a new TV series in which the Evil Queen had defeated the Heroes by blocking them in a city without time and without reminiscence, making them live like regular mortals in which she was the only one with the The Dark One aware of the truth.
For three seasons Once Upon A Time was a real relief, because despite the Villains were…

Rizzoli & Isles smells like home, has the taste of Sunday evening with the family in front of the fireplace (to have it!) it has the sound of joy and talk in the background. The jingle is explained by the origins of the Rizzoli family: a hydraulic father, a housewife mother, three children, two policemen and a criminal, emigrated from Ireland a few generations before, but still keeping the traditions high, and I think it’s right for us to approach the TV series in the best way, preparing a typical dish: the stew in beer!
A few winters ago, on a Sunday get together with the whole family around the table for dinner, whether unsure to eat something or settle for the 14 courses of lunch, my attention was recalled by a strange background music. A characteristically Irish melody, which immediately puts joy and good humour and desire for Guinness.
It’s I’m Shipping Up to Boston, says Shazam, and is introducing a new crime TV series, which continues to be one of the few series that I watch in Italian with the entire family, “Rizzoli & Isles”.
The protagonists are two very different women: Maura Isles – legal doctor played by Sasha Alexander, and Jane Rizzoli – homicide investigator with the face that never gets old Angie Harmon (try to watch her in “Law & Order” or “The homicides “, she has not aged a day!).
Jane is a…

From school I learned that what you really learn are not the times tables or important dates but being with people you do not know and you really care about too little (or too much);
From tales I learned that there are bad guys but you can boycott them;
From volleyball I learned that the individual is strong but it is the group that makes the difference, that no matter how Mother Nature made you, but how you bring out your grit, determination, strength, tenacity! ;
From the theater I learned that the real actors are all under the stage and that the best masks are the ones we wear every day. That if you believe in something you can make it happen. ;
From the reading I learned that if you know more than others you’ll always be one step ahead, and you will avoid the commonplace;

When I watch the TV series set in warm places like Australia or California and I find the Christmas episode, I get a great envy.
