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.

  • You’ve Been Trumped Too review – Scottish widow…

    Resistance builds to Donald Trump’s attempts to build a golf resort near Aberdeen in this prescient documentary sequel Four years ago, film-maker Anthony Baxter made a documentary about Donald Trump’s corporate behaviour in Scotland that gave people here an idea of how his arrogance and racism feels. But despite being shown to critics and appearing at festivals, his film was buried in a blizzard of legal threats, and never really got publicly shown. Only now has Baxter found a distributor to take it on. In fact, this film is a sequel. The first film, You’ve Been Trumped in 2012, was about Trump’s breathtaking arrogance in attempting to vandalise a beautiful coastline near Aberdeen to build a golf resort, making all sorts of bland promises on job creation (the sort that he made to US citizens before the presidential election) and finding that the Scottish political establishment was an absolute pushover.

  • Pink Floyd’s burning man: Aubrey Powell’s best…

    ‘A gust of wind blew the fire into the stuntman’s face. His team piled in with blankets to put him out – but he still lost an eyebrow and some of his moustache’ Storm Thorgerson and I had created most of the artwork for Pink Floyd’s albums, including Dark Side of the Moon. One day we were asked to Abbey Road Studios to listen to tracks from the band’s new record. The lyrics were mostly about absence, and the album’s title, Wish You Were Here, was a reference to Syd Barrett, who had left the band some years earlier due to issues with LSD. They were also making a statement about record company executives who regarded musicians as money-making machines, demanding one hit song after another – an absence of a different kind. We were talking late one night with our friend George Hardie, kicking around ideas. Storm said: “Have a Cigar [the album’s third track], is about insincerity in the music business. What about an image of two businessmen, and one of them is getting burned in a deal?” We all thought the image was a good idea, and I remember saying to Storm: “How are we going to do that?” He replied: “Set a man on fire.” Continue reading… […]

  • DMX, Woodstock ’99: a landmark for rap and…

    The rapper could have faced hostility at the overheated, febrile festival but capitalised on one of rap’s biggest ever audiences with a show of awesome power Every couple of weeks on Twitter someone posts a video clip of DMX’s performance at Woodstock ’99, usually with a wry caption (“DMX performed for planet earth. Goals”) that references the never-ending crowd, crossing their arms into a sea of Xs. Dripping with sweat and wearing a pair of beaten up Timberland boots and blood-red dungarees, the New York MC (real name Earl Simmons) growls viscerally before launching into raw hood anthems such as Get at Me Dog and Damien. The crowd of 200,000 mostly white concertgoers shout back combative lyrics such as: “What the fuck you gonna do / When we run up on you?” They sing along to Ruff Ryders Anthem as if it’s an American standard, rather than a song that’s been out only a year.

  • The Trial review – coolly observational view of…

    Maria August’s somewhat dry chronicle of Dilma Rousseff’s impeachment is a reminder that democracy can sometimes be undermined from within the system In 2016, the impeachment trial of Brazil’s first female president, Dilma Rousseff, began. She was accused of breaking budgetary laws, but in the midst of the ongoing Operation Car Wash corruption scandal, her supporters argued that the real motivation behind the proceeding was political, not legal. In this film, completed before Bolsonaro’s rise to power, director Maria August takes us back through the strangely staid series of rulings. Is a coup is still a coup when it follows “due process”?

Travelling to Italy is usually very safe. It is one of the most developed nations in the world. However, the recent coronavirus breakout has sparked concerns when travelling to northern Italy.

  1. To prevent the spread of infectious disease health practitioners suggest you catch all your sneezes in a tissue and dispose of it immediately.
  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

 

So far the Coronavirus outbreak has not been contained. The World Health Organisation (WHO) is warning of pandemic outbreak as many nations including Italy, Iran and China struggle to stem the spreading of the deadly disease. 

Information about Coronavirus COVID-19

In a typical setting, in the home, a virus can incubate itself and survive for approximately 24 hours. So always wipe down all surfaces, especially when you cook. 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.
