Effetto Venezia 2012

Effetto Venezia, LivornoIt is that time of the year again, “Effetto Venezia” has begun. This time I was almost sure that there was no money for it, but they were able to find some funds somehow.Effetto Venezia, LivornoAfter Spain and France, this year's theme is Greece. The organizers felt somewhat obliged to specify “Mythical Grrece”: a clumsy tentative to distance us from our “brothers in debt”?Effetto Venezia, LivornoI am not sure if in planning the inauguration last Friday, in coincidence with the opening ceremony of the 2012 Olympics, they were overconfident or simply uninformed, but having watched bits of the London extravaganza, for once I will go with “Effetto Venezia”...

Hope there will be some nice food and wine from over here. Music probably as well. Please have you all a good Sunday.
