The Via Francigena: an ancient road to build the future of Europe
The Via Francigena represents the itinerary which Sigeric, Archbishop of Canterbury, tread in 990 on his way back home to Canterbury, after he received the investiture in Rome from the Pope. Sigeric was the first to confer official sanction on the Via Francigena as one of the most important pilgrimage routes.

Naples, Italy lies on the same parallel as New York, the 40th. They are divided by less than 8’ of latitude and more than one Atlantic Ocean of good government and love for the city by the local Institutions.
So, while in New York City the local authority is supporting citizens in humanistically redesigning metropolitan lifestyle, Naples is renewing bottom-up its energy, just drawing it out of the sources of a culture so millenary as – unexpectedly – modern in filtrating toxins of a mistaken modernity.
To say 'I love dogs', sounds natural, a bit rhetorical and also boring, it is like talking about 'nutella' or blue ocean with white sands and palm trees.
Nowadays who doesn't love dogs?
For sure the good parents gifting a puppy to their kid who has been watching it on a tv spot; may be the same ones who will leave him on a highway at summertime . Lots of people we could think as 'respectable' would do the same.
I think that only few people can really love a dog purely without any frustration, selfishness and....hurry.
The same boy who has received the puppy doesn't have much time to give him hurrying him up in his needs so to be free to play with his friends, to watch tv or at the best to study.
John James didn't realize he had left more than $100,000 of jewelry and other valuables in the back seat of a taxi until he reached for his bag to show off the treasured photographs he'd taken with a few of his late friends: the actress Sylvia Sidney, writer Dominick Dunne and broadcaster Alistair Cooke.
Mr. James had just returned to his apartment Sunday afternoon from an office near Madison Square Park, where he'd picked up a tote bag holding the photographs, just over $200 in cash and the jewelry. He said he planned to carry them on the Amtrak Acela train that night to a bank in Delaware, where his family has two homes.
But when Mr. James got out of his cab outside the National Arts Club in Gramercy Park Sunday afternoon, he left the bag in the back seat.
Mr. James lives at the club's landmarked headquarters, the Samuel Tilden mansion at 15 Gramercy Park South. His twin brother, O. Aldon James, is the president. Among its members are Martin Scorcese, Uma Thurman and Robert Redford, according to the club's website.
When Mr. James realized his mistake, he said he felt "complete shock and disbelief."
He called a friend who had worked in city government who told him to stay calm, they'd find the bag. Crucially, Mr. James had taken his receipt from the driver, Zubiru Jalloh.
STOP, the English word short and sharp pulls up the driver; not so peremptory, but no less appropriate, the injunction “Slow down!”
The Oxford English Dictionary records over an arc of a thousand years hundreds of examples of the word SLOW, a web of interacting, at times conflicting, shades and shifts of meaning. From the beginning in the 9th century its connotations were decidedly negative; in King Alfred’s Boethius it translates the Latin “stultus”. A further stage and we have “naturally disinclined to be active or to exert oneself; constitutionally inert or sluggish; lacking in promptness or energy”. A temporal dimension is added in the 14th century: “spending a comparatively long time in the performance of some act; doing something in a slow or deliberate manner” or “taking a long time to go a comparatively short distance”: Milton’s Satan, “journed on, pensive and slow”.
