Whatever comes in my life and it’s worth celebrating it

The littlecamels are back!

[lang_en]Yeeee!!! Months and months of silence, but now we’re back. The littlecamels and I. Still a lot of work to be done to make these pages work properly, but we already thank you for the wonderful evening. That is yet to come. But it’ll be wonderful, we have no doubt 🙂 [/lang_en] [lang_fi] Noniin! Pikku […]

La vita è altrove

[…] Ormai anche il redattore l’aveva capita ed era pronto ad andarsene, già il vecchio poeta lo prendeva sottobraccio e lo conduceva verso la porta, e Jaromil si rendeva conto che sarebbe rimasto solo con la ragazza, che era seduta in una larga poltrona, le gambe incrociate sotto di sé, i capelli neri sciolti sulle […]

Pisa, Finland

Think about planning a trip in the cold Finnish autumn. Where could you go? Mmm, let’s go to Pisa! Think about the beautiful Piazza dei Miracoli, the leaning tower. Ah, it’s everybody’s dream, isn’t it? Ok, let’s have a look at the map then:

Tromsø International Film Festival 2005

I’ve just got back from Tromsø. It’s the third time I go there to attend the Tromsø International Film Festival (TIFF). As I already said for the 2003 and 2004 edition, I love this tiny-but-extremely-lively town of the far north (it takes still 700 km to get there from Oulu), and the film festival is […]

Wind: 2.1 meters per second from southeast (140°). Temperature: 0 °C The temperature felt like -3 °C. Pressure: 1026 […]

Seize the day!

Gather ye rosebuds while ye may, Old Time is still a-flying; And this same flower that smiles today Tomorrow will be dying. From the poem “To the virgins, to make much of time” by Robert Herrick (1591-1674)

Katso ja kuule!

Eeehh, amici amici, quando iniziai a studiare la lingua finlandese mi imbattei in parecchie parole interessanti, che potrebbero essere fraintese in un contesto diverso (tipo in Italia). Per cui mi venne l’idea di condividere la mia ilaritè con Rocco Tanica e Faso, che a loro volta si permisero di condividerla con gli ascoltatori della trasmissione […]

Napapiiri, Napapijri… it’s just fashion, darling!

Belonging to the huge crowd of Finnish speaking Eyeties, I’ve always wondered why (and why just in Italy) a rather important winter clothes brand has the Norwegian flag on its clothes and the Finnish word Napapijri (Artic circle) on it. Later on, I discovered that “Napapijri” is actually the name of that brand. And what […]

Climbing

Once upon a time I used to climb. That was fun. Then I stopped, for many reasons. None of them is a good one. However I managed to get shot (and I survived) in a short video by the young director from Rovaniemi called Panu P. I do believe it’s worth watching it (and laughing). […]
