Uncle Scrooge is better than Cyan. It is a supersuccesso the idea of ​​cartoonist Daniel Caluri – already signed the vernacular satirical and publishers Bonelli and sandwiches – to transform the fascist mausoleum at Livorno in the store where Scrooge dives blessed in abundance. The ruin of the monument erected in honor of Costanzo Ciano, fascist and father of the late Foreign Minister Galeazzo, the son of the Duce was shot in ’44 in the Republic of Salo following the process of Verona ‘s “high treason” voting confidence in Mussolini on 25 July ’43, still stands in front of the sea of ​​Livorno, home town of Ciano.

Guest iperfavorevoli Web, online petitions rose by signatories to turn it just so and even contacts with Disney that would be interested in granting the “image rights” to paint the base cube that much resembles the safe Scrooge.

LOCATION ‘RECOMMENDED TO START SEASON
where to ski early in the season
Many skiers are wondering where to ski early in the season. There is a number of ski resort that are recommended because they lend themselves more than others for skiing in November because of their high altitude, perhaps for the presence of glaciers or for a snow-making system which allows very efficient early openings.

The conditions vary from year to year, but it is good practice to choose ski areas which offer runs above 2500 meters.

 

Not many Italian places where you can ski from the first days of November, while there are many ski resorts which open towards the end of the month. The Italian places that we would recommend for the first half of the season are:

Cervinia (AO) from the country’s two cable cars and a cable car leading skiers up to 3480 meters of the Plateau Rosa. The plant opened earlier in the season are all on the Swiss side. And ‘therefore necessary to have the international ski pass. From Saturday, November 8, 2014 will be open tracks also on the Italian side with the top twenty of the Plan area and the Mason – Fornet – Bontadini.
Presena Glacier (BS): the Presena glacier offers the first ski runs Adamello Ski starting Saturday 8 novebre 2014.
