15 penalty points for Juventus

Juventus was sentenced to 15 penalty points by the FIGC Court of Appeal for the capital gains case. A penalty that has immediate effect: the bianconeri thus slip from the current 37 points in the standings to 22. From third place to 10th, with the same points as Bologna and Empoli.

The penalty came due to the rigged pluses of Juventus to fix the budgets. The thing that perplexes me is that only Juventus was penalized because in reality the operations also involved the other teams. Furthermore, 9 points were foreseeable and instead 15 penalty points were imposed. As far as Europe is concerned, UEFA still has to deliver its ruling but I hope no more penalties are imposed

the crossing of the South Pole by bicycle by Omar Di Felice

Omar Di Felice, 41, is an ultra-cyclist. For years he has been riding his fat bike through the coldest territories in the world, from Iceland to Norway to Lapland. After the 4,000-kilometre crossing in the Arctic at the beginning of 2022, in November the athlete attempted a new feat, which no one else has ever succeeded in: reaching the South Pole in the Antartica unlimited project, to raise awareness, one month before the Cop 27, climate conference in Sharm el-Sheikh, on the state of the most fragile ecosystems, compromised by global warming. Despite the interruption of his ride, due to personal problems, he will not give up “Bike to 1.5°C”, the series of dissemination appointments on climate change in scientific and cultural festivals and in schools, organized together with the scientific partners Italian Climate Network and ESA-European Space Agency.

“Behind my crossings there is the will to explore my limits. Love for the world translates into the discovery of myself and the nature that surrounds me” explains Di Felice. The athlete, who set off on November 27 from Hercules Inlet, Chile. On his bicycle, the graphics of the climate stripes by the climate scientist of the University of Reading, Ed Hawkins. His path should have taken him, after more than 1,200 kilometers to the South Pole and then, after another 600 to the base of the Leverett Glacier on the opposite coast of Antarctica. On December 4, however, on the eighth day of his crossing, Di Felice had to change his plans, due to “serious personal and family problems, which did not allow me to go on”, he explained in a post on Instagram.

Goodbye to Gianluca Vialli: a great football and sport champion!

When I was a child I remember the Champions League final, the only final I’ve ever won since I was born: it was 1996 and Gianluca Vialli was the Campitano. When he raised the cup, his image remained indelible in my mind…
But Gianluca Vialli also played in England for Chelsea, leading the team to win trophies they had never won before. After dedicating himself for years to his career as a technical commentator on various televisions, in 2020 he joined the staf of the Italian national team and contributed to the victory of the European Football Championship. A great champion, but also a great person who never stopped fighting and smiled at life despite the long years of illness. Hi Gianluca…

Serie A has restarted: Juve hope to avoid heavy suspensions after the scandals…

yesterday the Italian football championship, the Serie A, restarted after a long break due to the World Cup (QATAR 2022) which this year took place for the first time in the winter period… At the beginning of the World Cup, in the end of November, the incredible news came out that the entire board of directors of the Juventus Club had resigned, including Andrea Agnelli, part of the family that has been managing Juventus and Fiat for centuries, the Turin-based car manufacturer, the most important in Italy and probably among the most important in Europe.

Describing what the Turin club may have done is difficult because Italian investigations are currently being carried out which are also connected to the European ones. One thing is certain, the irregularities of the team can lead in the worst case scenario even to relegation to Serie B, and obviously the consequent disqualification from the European cups (also in progress).

In itself, even a winning team is often hated by the opponents, especially Juventus which is the most titled in Italy. Since the 90s, especially after some successful episodes in the league (particularly against Inter), Juventus was always seen as a club that put pressure on refereeing in a direct or even indirect way… After the Calciopoli scandal that cost Juventus relegation, we thought finely about a cleaned up football… Obviously the latest scandals that have escaped have nothing to do with arbitrage but it is certain that it is sad to see a team like Juventus again in the spotlight of scandals. Nowadays I don’t think there’s a top club that is free from irregularities and in one way or another everyone falsifies their accounts… I hope football can improve

In Italy Environmental and tourist drama: snow is completely missing in the Apennines.

in the previous weeks I had already written on this blog about the climatic conditions that have been experienced in Italy in recent months… in particular from May 2022 until today, January 2023: temperatures above the average by even 10 degrees, and days that seem more of spring that winter. Just today, an article came out in ANSA (National Associated Press Agency) according to which snow is completely missing in all the regions with the Apennines: a monstrous and incredible fact that I believe has never occurred in the last few seconds in the Italian peninsula. Foreigners will probably mostly know the Alps, located in the north, which are known for their snow, skiing and tourism, but generally also the Apennines, between central-northern and central-southern Italy, have mountains which have always guaranteed winter tourism… This year there isn’t a single peak or ski slope that has the necessary, and it’s not even possible to make artificial snow because the temperatures are so high that they never drop below below zero, not even at night.

💡 🎄 the 2022 Christmas illuminations of the City of Campobasso

December 27, 2022, I walk through the city and I see some people walking on the street; most of them are crowded together in a bar in the center of the square. The air is fresh but not cold or frozen in fact even the skating rink tends to melt: fault of the last few weeks with tropical temperatures…
This year many doubted that the Christmas lights were at risk because the war in Ukraine war created higher energy prices
… but this year too Campobasso has showcased some beautiful lights ..

Italian Politics: The first two months of the Meloni government

National elections were held on 25 September to elect the new government and so the day after it was officially known who had won.Today, it is about two months of Giorgia Meloni’s government. In reality, the prime minister obtained the confidence of parliament on 20 October, after consultations in parliament and the vote of the president of the chamber and the senate. In reality, it was already known in advance who would win because the polls gave the Fratelli d’Italia a advantage over all the other parties and, barring sensational upheavals in the last few days, the outcome was obvious.
Giorgia Meloni is the first female prime minister. An event that did not have much effect, especially for some circumstantial situations: the prime minister’s party is clearly a right-wing party, the first in republican history (excluding those that have always taken percentages below 10%) and furthermore the votes took place in a crisis due to war and post covid.

As soon as the new government took office in parliament there were almost imminent reforms in various contexts. One of the first reforms was the one on rave parties. A provision that has caused much discussion and which seems to be more an identity flag than a civil and criminal intervention.
According to the new rules that will enter into force, those who participate in gatherings of more than 50 people in private areas and without authorizations will risk up to 6 years in prison.
The provision on rave parties has caused much discussion not only because the 6 years foreseen for those who will participate in these gatherings is comparable to the penalty of manslaughter, but because in reality a law to punish participants in rave parties already existed but evidently the government wanted to be even stricter on this. It must be said that rave parties are one of the main occasions in which there is the greatest use of hard or soft drugs.
As for the impediment prison, Meloni has decided not to apply benefits to those convicted of serious crimes and who did not want to collaborate with justice. A provision that at least in part finds the support of some exponents of the centre-left but in reality the constitutional court has left the reform dossier to the Consulta, which will soon have to pronounce itself due to a problem of incompatibility with article 41bis of the constitution.

Today, December 9, 2022, Francesco Gabbani’s single is released: ♬ NATALE TANTO VALE

Yuotube-Natale_Tanto_Vale is the video of the new single by the Tuscan singer Francesco Gabbani.
It came out today, December 9, 2022, it talks about an atypical Christmas, far from the affections and ties…


Today, December 9, 2022, Francesco Gabbani‘s new single was released: Natale Tanto Vale

As always, the Tuscan singer plays a lot with words, in fact even a foreigner would notice the play on words in the rhyme and sound of the words… But it is also a play on words in its content.
Furthermore, the peculiarity of this song is that it speaks of an atypical Christmas, far from relationships and feelings with relatives… It is no coincidence that the video shows Santa Claus completely alone in a skating rink.
This year Gabbani released an album (“Volevamo solo essere felici”) which launched four singles: La rete, Spazio tempo, the homonymous Volevamo solo essere felici and Peace & Love, released between September 2021 and June 2022. In Italy, Gabbani has some success but I hope it can also be successful outside Italy like Maneskin, who are currently the most popular Italian rock group abroad.

TESTO (LYRIC)

Che mi hai rubato l’anima
non è una novità
e pure quel cappotto
con i buchi nascosti sotto
abbottonato per metà
in centro stelle d’angeli
e più specialità
la pratica dell’Avvento
desidero ma non sento
il male quanto bene fai sogni impacchettati all’angolo
separati al tavolo
come da copione sulla scena lì con te

Natale tanto vale
far finta che non faccia male
salire quelle scale
e avere voglia di scappare
e niente più
[?]

Un brindisi dal pulpito
e la prosperità
è un classico natalizio
nascosta tra il bene e il vizio
la vedi la felicità
il tuo re del coro è un vandalo
figlio di uno scandalo
lì tra quel che resta
in carne e cuore accanto a te
Natale tanto vale
far finta che non faccia male
salire quelle scale
e avere voglia di scappare
e niente più
[?]

Adesso mai
it’s Christmas time

E vale tanto quanto vale
comunque
buon Natale

♬ Måneskin – THE LONELIEST

Lyric

“THE LONELIEST”

You’ll be the saddest part of me
A part of me that will never be mine
It’s obvious
Tonight is gonna be the loneliest
You’re still the oxygen I breathe
I see your face when I close my eyes
It’s torturous
Tonight is gonna be the loneliest

There’s a few lines that I have wrote
In case of death, that’s what I want, that’s what I want
So don’t be sad when I’ll be gone
There’s just one thing I hope you know, I loved you so

‘Cause I don’t even care about the time I’ve got left here
The only thing I know now is that I wanna spend it
With you, with you nobody else here
Tonight is gonna be the loneliest

You’ll be the saddest part of me
A part of me that will never be mine
It’s obvious
Tonight is gonna be the loneliest
You’re still the oxygen I breathe
I see your face when I close my eyes
It’s torturous
Tonight is gonna be the loneliest

I’m sorry but I gotta go
If you’ll ever miss me give this song another go

And I just keep on thinking how you made me feel better
And all the crazy little things that we did together
In the end, in the end, it doesn’t matter
If tonight is gonna be the loneliest

You’ll be the saddest part of me
A part of me that will never be mine
It’s obvious
Tonight is gonna be the loneliest

You’re still the oxygen I breathe
I see your face when I close my eyes
It’s torturous
Tonight is gonna be the loneliest

You’ll be the saddest part of me
A part of me that will never be mine
It’s obvious
Tonight is gonna be the loneliest

You’ll be the saddest part of me
A part of me that will never be mine
It’s obvious
Tonight is gonna be the loneliest
You’re still the oxygen I breathe
I see your face when I close my eyes
It’s torturous
Tonight is gonna be the loneliest
