Nostalgic | Reizen door Italië in een Alfa Romeo

See on Scoop.it - Good Things From Italy - Le Cose Buone d’Italia

Nostalgic organiseert exclusieve tours door Italië met klassieke Alfa Romeo’s.

Een zonovergoten landschap waarin een weg zich langs wijngaarden en cipressen slingert. Vanuit een klassieke cabriolet op je gemak de glooiende heuvels aan je voorbij zien trekken. Eén hand aan het stuur, de wind in je haren. Aan het einde van de rit een diner met Italiaanse topwijnen en het beste uit de Toscaanse keuken. Genieten van la dolce vita begint met Nostalgic.

3,000 People Celebrate The Launch Of 80m Mega Yacht in Ancona

See on Scoop.it - Good Things From Italy - Le Cose Buone d’Italia

Great celebrations involving 3,000 people including institutional representatives, VIPs, the Shipyard’s employees, the entire Management of the Ferretti Group, and many citizens (to whom the Shipyard was exceptionally opened) were held in Ancona for the launch of the new flagship CRN 129 “Chopi Chopi”, which - with its 80 metres of steel and aluminium – is the largest pleasure vessel ever built by CRN and one of the biggest ones ever produced in Italy.

CRN is the Ferretti Group’s Shipyard specialising in the construction and sale of fully-custom and semi-custom megayachts in steel, aluminium and fibreglass ranging between 40 and 90 metres in length.

The M/Y Chopi Chopi is a megayacht, entirely built at the Ancona Shipyard, whose value exceeds 80 million Euros. It is the 129th pleasure vessel built by CRN, which in 2013 will celebrate its fiftieth anniversary and is thus celebrating a really historic moment: this yacht has indeed broken the previous record of 72 metres set by the “Azteca”, which was launched in 2009 and, until yesterday, was the largest yacht built so far by CRN.

3,000 people arrived for the launch

The building of Chopi Chopi required approximately 660 thousand working hours. A large number of local suppliers was resorted to for its construction. Both the architectural firm in charge of the yacht’s exterior lines and interior layout – Studio Zuccon International Project - and the one that took care of interior design and furnishings – Studio Laura Sessa Romboli – are Italian, confirming the value of this megayacht and its being a world-class, entirely made-in-Italy product, bound to represent Italy’s outstanding shipbuilding industry all over the world.

The launching ceremony, open to the whole city of Ancona, was attended by CRN’s Chairman and CEO, Lamberto Tacoli, the Chairman of the Ferretti Group and the Weichai Group, Tan Xuguang, and the Ferretti Group’s CEO, Ferruccio Rossi, as well as by several public authorities including the Chinese Ambassador in Italy, Ding Wei, the President of the Marche Region Council, Gian Mario Spacca, Ancona’s Mayor, Fiorello Gramillano, and many leading Italian industrialists and entrepreneurs, headed by the President of Ucina-Confidustria Nautica (the Italian Marine Industry Association), Anton Francesco Albertoni.

Familie betrapt dochter in bed met verloofde en gooit jongeman van balkon in Crotone Italie

See on Scoop.it - La Gazzetta Di Lella - News From Italy - Italiaans Nieuws

Halfnaakte aanstaande schoonzoon breekt twee polsen en reeks tanden bij val van 5 meter in Italië.

In het zuiden van Italië leven blijkbaar nog oerconservatieve katholieke families. In de Calabrese kuststad Crotone (in de ‘zool’ van de Laars) betrapten haar ouders en broer een jonge vrouw in bed tijdens een vrijpartij met haar verloofde. De aanstaande schoonfamilie gaf de arme man eerst een pak slaag, greep de jongeman vervolgens bij armen en benen en smeet de verketterde verloofde van het balkon op de eerste verdieping naar beneden. Na die middeleeuwse ‘defenestratie’ smakte het slachtoffer zo’n vijf meter lager tegen de grond. Halfnaakt en zwaar gehavend strompelde de jongeman op eigen kracht naar een ziekenhuis in de buurt, waar onder meer twee gebroken polsen en een reeks kapotte tanden werden vastgesteld. De vader en zijn zoon zijn opgepakt op beschuldiging van moord, ook de moeder is gearresteerd voor het toebrengen van slagen en verwondingen.
