Overview of Italy – Italy is a cultural powerhouse. Located in the southern-central part of the European Union, it is a country stooped in history and tradition. The Unique boot-shaped borders extend into the Mediterranean Sea. The country’s historical cities are world-renowned. The cuisine and geographic beauty make it a popular destination for more millions of tourists each year. The nation is home to Mount Etna, Europe’s tallest and most active volcano, and houses two countries within its borders – The Vatican and San Marino.


Italy has been a unitary parliamentary republic since 2 June 1946, when the monarchy was abolished by a constitutional referendum. The President of Italy (Presidente della Repubblica), currently Sergio Mattarella since 2015, is Italy’s head of state.


The President is elected for a single seven years mandate by the Parliament of Italy and some regional voters in joint session. Italy has a written democratic constitution, resulting from the work of a Constituent Assembly formed by the representatives of all the anti-fascist forces that contributed to the defeat of Nazi and Fascist forces during the Civil War.


The Italian national tourism website has information for those wishing to travel or visit the country.  Information on your rights to live, work, travel and study in Italy, including access to healthcare and consumer rights, can be found on the official EU website.

  • Girl A: Abigail Dean on her shocking debut novel…

    Has this Google lawyer written the book of the year? The part-time author talks about the inspiration for her thriller about siblings who flee abusive parents and their ‘house of horror’Abigail Dean was about to turn 30 when she suddenly realised that her job as a lawyer was using up all the oxygen in her life. “If I didn’t make a change,” she says, “I was going to still be there on my 40th birthday.” She took three months off, writing every day at Dulwich library in London, and ended up with the seeds of what would become her debut novel, Girl A.“You don’t know me,” Lex, or Girl A, tells us as the novel opens, “but you’ll have seen my face. In the earlier pictures, they bludgeoned our features with pixels, right down to our waists; even our hair was too distinctive to disclose. But the story and its protectors grew weary, and in the danker corners of the internet we became easy to find.” Continue reading… […]

  • Palberta: Palberta5000 review – losing their…

    (Wharf Cat)The wonderfully scrappy New York indie trio are broadening their style but don’t quite have the songs to matchPalberta are frustrating. At their best, the New York trio dig up the bones of punk-funk and post-punk, bolt them together and run a power line through for a giggle. Just as often, they sound like the scrag-end of dated hipster indie. Their new album edges Lily, Ani and Nina closer toward professionalism, with perkier production than they’re used to, although they don’t quite have the strength of songwriting to leave the scuzz completely behind.This brings the familiar problems for any basement band seeking to stride up the stairs and widen their appeal. The scrappy underdog bite of, say, their quarter-arsed, one-minute cover of the Bee Gees’ unimprovable Stayin’ Alive is swapped for a swathe of toothless tunes neither cool nor commercial enough to satisfy hardcore fans or find an entirely new audience.

  • Foggy nights, burnt out cars and marshland: Billy…

    It had the biggest fishing fleet in the country, the largest gasworks in the world – and wastelands full of things to smash. The singer revisits the landscape his childhoodIt was a strange feeling to lie abed on foggy nights in my childhood and hear ships’ horns echoing through the empty streets, the mournful sound carrying through the cold, still air. Living in an east London suburb, I was used to falling asleep to the sound of traffic and trains, but boats? Their voices in the mist were a ghostly reminder of a time when our town was home to the biggest fishing fleet in England.I recently cast my mind back to those formative years while writing an Ode to Essex for a series of essays to be broadcast on Radio 3, exploring the nature of this much-maligned county.

  2. Use hand sanitising gel regularly
  3. Use a face mask when in public
  4. Report to emergency services if you have flu like symptoms

Protect you and your family by using antibacterial wipes when you enter the home, from germs that may have been brought in from the outside whilst shopping.
If you are 2.5 meters away from the person who sneezes you should be safe from infection. Or give them a mask. If you feel you were closer than approx 2.5 meters then you should wash your hands with antibacterial gel and also wash your face with soapy water.
Drink and consume plenty of Vitamin C, although it is not a cure, it will help the immune system fight against the Coronavirus, COVID19.
