I’m publishing some thoughts of my friend Renzo Piano:

“Dear Beppe last week in Bern, we had the opening ceremony for the Museum of Paul Klee, the great painter and educator who died in 1940.

The cost of constructing the museum was 75 million Swiss Francs, equivalent to 50 million dollars.

A journalist from the New York Times, who has been a war correspondent, pointed out that this cost is equal to that of an American bomber on a bombing mission in Iraq for one hour (including the cost of the explosives and escort).

I was devastated to think what can be done with the same sum of money: destroy everything for an hour or construct something that will peacefully nourish minds for centuries.

Crazy world!”

Renzo Piano

What a wonderfull world it would be... we were the bacterical flora, now we are a mortal virus, the war between the man and the earth is just beginned, just a century ago. Our mother earth will erase everithing is living over her, she does it sometimes, like a bath, una doccia, un bagno. But some men knows it, and know how to survive over the next global ambiental disaster, the next shaw... like a clever parassita. It's not for all, naturally, do you know noe's ark? Why Noé, like a mad, worked for his vision and didn't make anything to save other humans? Is this father an hero? No, is a simbol of our egoism, and in theory we descend all from him, an alcoolist.
What's new? We like to destroy more than create, actually. But God, the greatest architect is also the greatest composer and maybe he will surprise us.
Total respect to Renzo Piano and his parental vision.
Sorry for my english!

non voglio sprecare il tempo di nessuno, quindi sarò veloce e conciso.
esiste un'organizzazione internazionale non governativa che si preoccupa di monitorare e investigare e (mai abbastanza, purtroppo) smascherare corrotti, corruttori e corruzione a livello globale; questa organizzazione si chiama Transparency International. dal sito www.transparency.org è possibile acquistare, scaricare, ottenere in generale materiale di notevole valore, come il rapporto annuale sulla corruzione: più di 350 pagine di dati, grafici, analisi nazione per nazione.
tutti gli stati sono passati in rassegna, o meglio, tutti gli stati considerati civilizzati dalla stampa faziosa e populista.
proprio qui sta l'ironia: l'italia non c'è.
siamo liberi dalla corruzione o siamo un paese non civilizzato?

I've managed to save up roughly $34033 in my bank account, but I'm not sure if I should buy a house or not. Do you think the market is stable or do you think that home prices will decrease by a lot?

Sorry for posting my latest comment twice: silly I am!

I entirely agree with Elizabeth's views.
The Italian troops must withdraw from Iraq as soon as possible. The situation is just getting worse by the minute.

Please can you continue to call for the withdrawal of Italian troops from all the places in the world where the Americans find it convenient for them to be (including Iraq). Maybe then it'll be easier for us to withdraw the British troops too.
I fear that if we get comfortable in Iraq, we may well start to attack Iran. The "evil-talk" seems to be building up now.
Which country would be attacked after that?

I'm living in hope - but lots of people (say, in Iraq) have difficulty with living and for them hope is not really possible.

Italians have to take more pride in Renzo Piano and Beppe Grillo.
They are the italian pride!

Great this international site!

Well, I think that the additional problem is "the final destination of that money. In which pockets does it enter? Il will go into the same pocket that will not build anything but will request more money to destroy more and more!"
Please do not say any more that Sicily is the kingdom of Mafia, the house of the devil. You see very well by yourself where mafia and devil is actually leaving and prospering.
How many small peripheral delinquents need to collect so much money that a bomber destroys in only a few minutes?

Thanks to Beppe for an international discussion site.
