Hello to all friends of slow smoking

…ending the day with a good Toscano (Tuscan) cigar is a very pleasant habit!

Toscano is the trade name of a type of bitroncoconic cigar produced in Italy originally by the Italian tobacco monopoly with untreated but naturally fermented Kentucky tobacco. TOSCANO® is a registered trademark of Manifatture

FACTORY IN LUCCA
For almost 130 years, beginning in 1818, cigar manufacturing took place mainly in Florence. But in the years following the postwar period the ‘stortignaccolo’ or ‘crooked cigar’ left the Tuscan capital for good and transferred its production to factories in Lucca and Cava de’ Tirreni.
 
Starting from around 1853 until June 2004 the main Lucca factory was based in a former convent for Dominican nuns. Since then, production has been moved to a more modern and functional building in Mugnano, on the outskirts of Lucca.

FACTORY IN CAVA DE’ TIRRENI

Tradition has it that the first tobacco plantations, in Campania, were introduced by Joachim Murat during the Realm of Naples. Ever since antiquity it was considered a very precious plant. The calamities that befell the Realm of Naples did not stop tobacco production, which from then on became a source of income for the population of Cava de’ Tirreni.
From 1912 Cava de’ Tirreni is one of the main productions sites of the famous Italian cigar.

I walked on ancient colors and modern designs
in the smile of the light and in the geometric madness,
I discovered realizable emotions and dreams
in the enchantment of new and possible fairy tales.

Ho camminato su colori antichi e disegni moderni
nel sorriso della luce e nella geometrica follia,
ho scoperto emozioni e sogni realizzabili
nell’incanto di favole nuove e possibili.

Land of Fire: Divine forces flowing to the sea in crystal rivers between lava rocks and deep lakes, invisible to mortals and to the envious Moon; theatre of magnificence for the Deities that reign the Earth, battlefield for the splendour of the God who rules the waves: infinite clash for the power of beauty.

The ideal holiday after the lockdown

Tourism, England crowns Umbria: “It’s the ideal holiday after the lockdown”
In an Italy that has always been a destination for travelers from all over the world thanks to its artistic beauty, its landscapes and its food and wine specialties, the tourism sector will be one of those most tried by the coronavirus emergency.

Yet across the Channel, in England, there are those who still look to Italy…

…England crowns Umbria: “It is the ideal holiday after the lockdown”
“To crown the ‘green heart of Italy’ is the ‘Telegraph’, which promotes Umbria in the ‘travel’ section of its site”

“All the beaches, lakes, mountains and historic centers of Italy await tourists of the new era, in total safety and with the traditional welcome of hoteliers and restaurateurs.”

viaggi DO YOU TRAVEL?

 

 

“To travel is to live”

It is a quote that motivate me a lot. It motivates me to always look forward to my next travel. It gives me the pleasure and energy to work harder between my vacations.

When having a vacation I enjoy:

  • The sun and beach. Relaxing at the most beautiful beaches in the world. The sun and beach for me is the same as an Iphone charger.
  • New cultures. Meeting new cultures and people is a great way to travel. I love to find the small restaurants and bars where locals catch-up on their everyday life. I love to have small interesting discussions and talks with the locals.
  • History of monuments, churhes, buildings and attractions are for me another way to experience other countries.
  • Running through the city day and night is fantastic way to be active. One of my favourite cities to run through is New York when it is evening near Hudson River. You will discover a wonderful view over the river with the skyline in the background.
  • Friends and family. Discover countries, cultures, history and more gives me and nearest friends some life experiences.
  • Shopping design, unique and limited things which I am not able to buy at home is something I think very interesting.

Genova: Ponte sul Polcevera – (Italy)

Il rispetto per i morti è sincero e dovuto, il rispetto e l’amore per questo Paese altrettanto…meno per i politicanti e i giornalai, ai quali ci si deve avvicinare con spirito critico.
Io sono convinto che le strutture vitali e i servizi di base di un Paese debbano essere principalmente, seppure non totalmente, pubbliche: acqua, luce, gas, ferrovie, telefonia, rete stradale…ecc…Tutto deve essere, ovviamente, ben gestito: non mancano esempi, o non sono mancati in passato, come non mancano speculazioni e ruberie. Non trovo esempi di efficienza in questo clima post-liberista.
Se non siamo il “paese dei campanelli” i servizi non devono avere scopo di lucro…o pensiamo di fare business con i Vigili del Fuoco o l’Arma dei Carabinieri o con l’acqua da bere e l’aria che respiriamo?
I ponti non si suicidano!!!! Crollo strutturale o atto di Dio sono sempre preceduti da incuria o errori….non stiamo parlando di un vascello in balia delle onde!
Vorrei ricordare che: “solo nel 2016, i ricavi da pedaggio di Atlantia sono ammontati a 4 miliardi. Per non parlare del fatto che, ogni anno, a gennaio arrivano puntualmente i rincari dei pedaggi in teoria giustificati dagli investimenti dei concessionari sulla rete autostradale. Negli anni, le autostrade si sono confermate una gallina dalle uova d’oro per i Benetton che le hanno acquistate a prezzi stracciati dallo Stato”.
Stato e privati sembrano congiurare contro gli utenti e nel caso del ponte sul Polcevera, come minimo, sono mancati il monitoraggio e il controllo da parte di Autostrade e da parte degli Enti preposti.
Lo Stato deve funzionare: è un nostro diritto e un dovere di tutti!!!!
Se, invece, l’Italia sta assomigliando al paese dei campanelli, me ne vergogno e lavorerò per migliorarla.

Romano Pisciotti

“only in 2016, Atlantia’s toll revenues amounted to € 4 billion, not to mention the fact that, every year, in January the toll price rises are justified in theory by the investments of the concessionaires on the motorway network. highways have confirmed the goose that laid the golden eggs for the Benetton who bought them at rock bottom prices “.

 

 

La Lanterna

Quando crolla un maxi ponte, per di più sopra una città come Genova, allora dobbiamo capire che le Autostrade vanno nazionalizzate e gestite senza logiche di profitto. Se si confermerà il cedimento strutturale la revoca delle concessioni ad Autostrade sarebbe un atto dovuto e doveroso.

Romano Pisciotti: concordo !!!!

The first cargo ships passed through Egypt’s New Suez Canal

The first cargo ships passed through Egypt’s New Suez Canal on Saturday in a test-run before it opens next month, state media reported, 11 months after the army began constructing the $8 billion canal alongside the existing 145-year-old Suez Canal.

The new waterway, which President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi hopes will help expand trade along the fastest shipping route between Europe and Asia and give a boost to Egypt’s economy, will be formally inaugurated on Aug. 6.

Sisi wants the canal to become a symbol of national pride and to help combat Egypt’s double-digit unemployment. The old Suez Canal is already a vital source of hard currency for Egypt, which has seen tourism and foreign investment drain away in the years of turmoil since a 2011 uprising.

Three container ships crossed the new waterway, state news agency MENA reported. One was an American ship heading to Egypt’s Port Said from Saudi Arabia, another was a Danish ship sailing to the United States from Singapore, and a Bahraini ship going to Italy from Saudi Arabia.

The exercise took place amid tight security. An insurgency based in the Sinai Peninsula, which borders on the Suez Canal, has killed hundreds of soldiers and police since 2013. State television said there were helicopters circling above and showed naval vessels escorting the ships.

Mohab Mameesh, the chairman of the Suez Canal Authority who led the project, told state television from aboard the first ship that the test-run had been a success.

“This is the first trial crossing but it will be followed by more trials,” he said. “We are 99.2 percent done with everything. We should be completely done in two or three days.”

The existing canal earns Egypt around $5 billion per year. The new canal, which will allow two-way traffic of larger ships, is supposed to increase revenues by 2023 to $15 billion.

It should also reduce navigation time for ships to 11 hours from about 22 hours, Mameesh said last month, making it the fastest such waterway in the world.

The government also plans to build an international industrial and logistics hub nearby that it hopes will eventually make up about a third of the Egyptian economy. (Reporting by Omar Fahmy and Yusri Mohamed; Writing by Ahmed Aboulenein; Editing by Raissa Kasolowsky)
