Only In Italy? A Complete Orchestra - Of Women Playing Harps

Posted by The TJMK Main Posters



Complexity squared….

The venues are not given, but one looks like the La Scala Opera House in Milan, completely sold out. Actually, there are a few such orchestras elsewhere in Europe and in the US; in Italy they are thick on the ground.

Meredith’s Perugia #34: Startling Sights Of Italy As Selected By Video Editor Alessandro Belotti

Posted by The TJMK Main Posters

Exhausted yet?!!  Another in our video series of what Meredith could and should have seen. Same with everybody here if they possibly can.

We have had some readers curious as to the point of this series - until they themselves got to go there. THEN they saw what Meredith was forever stopped from seeing, and they started really watching.

Amateur editor Alessando Belotti put this YouTube together.  Italians have produced far more of these proud, adulatory videos than any other nationaility, go online and you can track down thousands.

Italian are lucky that they have so much to work with - huge history, culture and scenery; fashion, cars, food and wines, mountains, plains, and a coastline that is one of the longest in the world.

Meredith’s Perugia #32: The Historical And Cultural Center Of Perugia

Posted by The TJMK Main Posters



Everybody here knows that the center of Perugia is a walled plateau. If you’ve not yet been there, though, it might surprise you how high up it is.

Its great height really explains its existence. Above the mosquitoes and marauding bands. Its great height does not always come out in these videos. At a guess it is 1500 feet up. To get up there involves long fun zig-zaggy climbs up from the railway station area to the west or from the football stadium area to the south.

Hardly anyone arrives from the east or the north. To the east behind the court there is a long rather steep drop down and few roads could be built at the lowest levels. Perugia ends rather abruptly down there.

To the north below the sweeping view from Meredith’s window the two winding roads to the bottom of the deep valley through groves of olive trees and fig trees drop down for a very long time. It is difficult to build on those slopes. Perugia also ends rather abruptly down there.

Perugia is right at the center of the Apennnine mountains, which are slowly sinking and dividing out.  Perugia is strangely protected though. This makes it one of the most original old cities in Italy, one of the few where the tolls from natural forces have always been low and the ancient artistry remains.

Meredith knew all of this long before she got there. It was a place she was bound to love, and would have remained attached to for life.

Meredith’s Perugia #33: Calabria In Deep South Gradually Climbs Back Up In Tbe World

Posted by The TJMK Main Posters



The “toe” of Italy. To the west is haunting Sicily, and to the east is lively Salento.

All of these areas are increasingly becoming tourist hotspots as they have the hottest sun and least crowds and their history is pretty interesting. The further back in history you go the rainier and greener and more prosperous these provinces were. Once they were very well off.

They were also being given special economic boosts courtesy of the European Community - at least uintil “austerity” became the mantra of the day and their special programs had to be cut back.

In the 20th century maybe a higher proportion of the population from the Calabria province moved to the US than from any other. Pity. Scarce talent.
