Rome Journal: Fontana di Merda
Huffington Post - about 2 months
Rome is famous for its fountains amongst them of the Trevi (the sight of a famous plunge by Anita Ekberg and Marcello Mastroianni in La Dolce Vita), the Fontana delle Tartarughe in the Piazza Mattei, and the Fontana dei Quattro Fiumi in the Piazza Navona. But there's another kind of fountain that can be ubiquitous in Rome depending on the season, and that's the fountain created by gastroenteritis and that can be located by listening to the moans coming from behind doors of hotel rooms occupied by tourists to the city. When these waters are sprouting, in their Piazza da Toletta, a more apt comparison might be made comparison to Mount Vesuvius. In Mexico a related syndrome is known as Montezuma's Revenge. This has been a bad winter for stomach ailments and one wonders what the effect on the restaurant business has been. Apart from the antiquities one of the reasons one comes to Rome is for the food and there's nothing worse than finding yourself both lacking an appetite and unable to keep ...

Rome Journal: Last Tango?
Huffington Post - about 2 months
Cultural mythologies are created by movies and books. For instance there was the Rome of Fellini's La dolce vita (1960) filled with itinerant intellectuals, who chased after women with large cleavages. A whole generation of Italian actors amongst them Sophia Loren and Marcello Mastroianni came to prominence typecast for these roles. These were a little more than kin and less than kind, fallen aristocrats, high class hookers or both. And there was the more down at your heels world which Fellini immortalized in Le notti di Cabiria (1957) in which his wife Giulietta Masina played a lady of the night, who had fallen on hard times. Pier Paolo Pasolini, the director the infamous masterpiece of degradation, Salo (1975), and who knew the Roman underworld, was commissioned to write the dialogue. Paolo Sorrentino's La grande bellezza (2013) paid homage to Fellini's Rome, particularly with respect to the parody of outsized artistic personalities. But does the old Rome with its glamorous white tel ...

'The <i>Shawati'</i> Interviews': Emirati Filmmaker Khalid Al Mahmood
Huffington Post - about 3 years
Khalid Al Mahmood, image courtesy of the filmmaker While I am the first to hate labels imposed by the world around us, I made a conscious choice to include "Emirati filmmaker" in the title of this interview with Khalid Al Mahmood, part of a supplement on Gulf cinema culture published in the wonderful Shawati' Abu Dhabi. Because to be an "Emirati filmmaker" today is to be a pioneer, a trailblazer, someone at the forefront of a movement that is just beginning, yet changes so quickly day by day, progressing and evolving, that it's hard to keep up. Cinema in the Gulf, the Emirates, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and all the surrounding countries that make up this region, is here to stay. But more importantly, it's here to develop, mature, expand and one day, overtake all other world industries. And there are two reasons for that: One, that it's deeply rooted in the traditional Khaliji culture of story-telling and two, that demographically, the Gulf region has some of the youngest, most willing ...

Huffington Post - over 3 years
Sure, I'm tough on movies, but sometimes I'm just another gushing, adoring fan. Such is the case with actress Catherine Deneuve, the stunning French actress who turns 70 today. Why do I love her so?

PHOTOS: Catherine Deneuve's Daughter Set To Follow In Her Mother's Footsteps
Huffington Post - over 3 years
The pomme doesn't fall too far from the tree, after all. Beloved French actress Catherine Deneuve's daughter, Chiara Mastroianni, has just been announced as the new face of Fendi fragrances. Mastroianni, an actress in her own right, is the daughter of Deneuve and Italian film star Marcello Mastroianni. Along with acting, fragrance shilling seems to be all in the family, as maman Deneuve spent the better part of the late '70s fronting campaigns for Chanel's No. 5 perfume. We bet Karl Lagerfeld, creative director for both Chanel and Fendi, was looking to channel the same icon energy with his latest casting choice. We're eagerly awaiting the unveiling of Mastroianni's Fendi ads, but in the meantime, take a walk down memory lane with a few of Deneuve's classic campaigns.

Iconic Fountain Gets A Makeover
Huffington Post - about 4 years
ROME — Rome's 18th-century Trevi Fountain, famed as a setting for the film "La Dolce Vita," is getting a (EURO)2.18 million ($2.9 million) restoration courtesy of the Fendi fashion house. The 20-month project on one of the city's most iconic fountains was unveiled at a city hall press conference Monday featuring Fendi designers Karl Lagerfeld and Silvia Venturini Fendi, who said the project combined a love of Rome's past with a need to preserve its future. Rome's fountains, Lagerfeld said, "are there to glorify water, which is the most important thing in life." It's the latest example of Italian fashion companies coming to the aid of Italy's chronically underfunded cultural heritage. The founder of the Tod's footwear company is footing the bill for the (EURO)25 million (nearly $34 million) restoration of Rome's ancient Colosseum, and Mayor Gianni Alemanno said he hoped these two donations were just the start. "Without similar initiatives, we won't be able to ...

The Best Parts Of Venice That Most Tourists Miss
Business Insider - over 4 years
Despite the daily invasion of tourists that flood Venice, some neighbourhoods retain a down-to-earth village feeling, where there are still butchers and bakers rather than mask and glass shops.

Here are 10 of the best bars, restaurants and shops to check out.

Obama’s ‘Fine’ Mess
National Review Online - over 4 years
The 1990 Italian film Everybody’s Fine is one of the most depressing films I’ve ever seen. Starring the late Marcello Mastroianni, it’s the story of an old man who tells his wife he’s going to visit their grown kids.

It turns out that the kids are all doing badly, and the whole trip is drenched in nostalgia and regret for what might have been. When the father gets home, he can’t bring himself to tell his wife the truth, even though — the audience discovers — she’s been dead and buried for years. In the last scene, we see the old man at his wife’s grave, reassuring her, “Everybody’s fine.” Keep reading this post . . .

Dogster Film Review: "The Salt of Life" - a Bittersweet Delight
Dogster - almost 5 years
There's nothing quite like a good Italian film. It transports the the soul - not just to bella Italia, but to what the country represents at its best; vitality, earthiness, exhuberant and attractive men and women, and a certain indefinable spirit that's hard to find in other parts of the world or the imagination. Add dogs to a good Italian movie, and you just can't go wrong. "The Salt of Life," a wistful comedy about an aging mama's boy who longs to look and feel younger, has all the ingredients of a fine Italian film, and a couple of scene-stealing dogs to boot.  Between his demanding, aristocratic mother, his platonic friendship with his wife, his daughter's slacker live-in boyfriend, and all the beautiful Roman women he passes daily while walking his dog, Gianni is constantly reminded that he's inching closer to life as one of the "codgers" he sees sitting in chairs outside cafes all day.
