Where to ski low cost, map and prices for “having fun” with the autumn snow

While in the south probably someone is still bathing at the sea, in the North is already all ready for the new ski season. If most of the facilities will open between the second half of November and early December, in some regions of Italy in a few days it will be possible to put the skis at the foot

The Stelvio Pass, in Lombardy, thanks to over 20 kilometers of all difficulty, for a total difference of over 700 meters, is one of the most important summer skiing and snowboard centers. Although the heat of summer has created some problems, forcing them to close ski lifts and ski slopes, enthusiasts will be able to enjoy over 20 kilometers of slopes until November 5th with a late-torch torch scheduled for Saturday 4th.

In South Tyrol, the slopes of the Val Senales glacier are already open: skiers have a 3,212-meter Grawand chairlift. “Hope is to be able to open all the systems within two weeks, allowing time,” explains the local operators. Solda has been on the road since October 21, due to the high slopes of up to 3250 meters.

Prices
It is still “early to give a complete picture of any price increases on plant prices” but, as explained by AdnKronos Valeria Ghezzi, president of the Anef (National Association of Operators), “where we should be talking about 2% at most. And I think even from a receptive point of view there will be no significant increases. ” “Investment in the industry amounts to 70 billion – says the Ghezzi – now snow is always guaranteed, also because the trend is that of a mountain to live all year round: even when it is natural you work because it enhances comfort of those who wander. ” “In any case, hope is that this year will be a ‘white Christmas’ – he concludes – not so much because we fear that the sector is affected, but above all, what are the Christmas holidays from the point of view of the collective imagination.”

Valentine’s Day is coming, but you do not need the special occasion of Valentine’s Day to enjoy a gem: today we speak of the latest proposals for Ayala Bar that presents the new Dune collection. It is luxurious jewels that tell an ethnic and chic approach together.
The Israeli-born designer Ayala Bar signing this wonderful collection that consists of necklaces, bracelets, necklaces and earrings are able to immediately give a mysterious air of the Arabian Nights to the woman wearing them.

The designer has chosen to focus on the rose as a recurring color, the same tone that has elected Pantone color of the year in the shade Rose Quartz. Everything takes so immediately looked more feminine, almost innocent, with an effective contrast to the extremely seductive allure of shapes and rich decorations.

It is, admittedly, very flashy jewelry that require a great character to be worn without letting overwhelm. At the same time, however, they manage to give an exotic touch and extremely attractive outfit even more minimalist.

Each piece is richly worked in a woven structure, overlays and bezels that use the reflections of the pearl, the facets of the crystals, gold accents, trimmings and beads that run between spirals and sinuous curves.

The most interesting pieces are undoubtedly the earrings, pendants all, often very long and flashy. Constitute the richest section and articulated in the collection. We also love the beautiful necklace that reflects the inspiration of the statement necklace and established some seasons ago but bringing it here to levels of great technical mastery.

INTERVIEW WITH FLAVIO MANZONI

 

“Never in a Red autonomous driving ‘
The head of the Horse style explains how did the evolution of four-seater FF
“Pretty as a concept, commemorates the 250 GT Lusso, a favorite of Enzo Ferrari ‘

We start from the name, GTC4Lusso. It helps us to decipher it, Flavio Manzoni?
“GT stands for Gran Turismo. C coupe. There are four places. But also the driving wheels and, new, steerable “.
‘Luxury’, it is a Ferrari, does not require much explanation.
“In addition to evoke the 250 GT Lusso, one of the most loved by Enzo Ferrari, the word indicates the car’s vocation and refers inside: a luxurious living environment. ».
GTC suggests to 330.
“Right. It is an important historical landmark, but mentioned only in the modern wing of the air vent. ”
From where you started: a white sheet or FF?
“Of the FF GTC4Lusso it keeps the chassis. So we started from an architecture where the fundamentals are the grandeur of the front, due to the engine V12, and the importance of the cabin, which was to be comfortable for four people. ”
So you’ve taken the concept of shooting brake.
“At the beginning she was not said. We confirmed the usability and versatility that allows internal, but working a lot on the back. ”
Very different proportions from those of the FF.
“We lowered the roofline, which tends to fall more dynamically towards the rear and incorporates a spoiler, and made more Campanato the pavilion, in order to enhance the” shoulders. ” View from behind, the car has a very placed shape, large and well on its wheels. ”
Let’s move to the side, with the reason that in Maranello defined “tuning fork”.
“Born by the front fender and the muscle tends to snellirsi in the door, creating a shadow very marked in the bottom, in which is reflected the floor. All this reduces the load on the car body. ”
Other details of the side that wishes to observe?
“The front wing muscle, you find yourself on the back too. The C-pillar that pushes forward and produces a slightly ‘fastback effect. The air vent in the fender, with the three deflectors that seem to float, suspended. The diffuser, which we kept pure, born as technical studies of aerodynamics; it was only formally completed, but the aerodynamic concept has remained intact. ”
Behind the double lamps evoking the tradition.
“Interpreted in a modern way: they are small, technology, fill well the mass of the stern. Framed in the arched spoiler, give back that expression typical of so many Ferrari, for instance 308. When the thin red rings of light up lights are beautiful. ”
shadow carouselFerrari Gtc4 Luxury, the heir to the FF
“Even here we wanted to preserve the maximum purity, only accentuating modeled at the fenders. The wide “mouth” collects all the thermal functions, the radiator and the two brake air intakes. So there is the standing it deserves a machine of this class is an image of power. The headlights take up the theme “L” of the latest Ferrari, but they grow horizontally and produce a more aggressive effect. Finally, below, there are two lateral spoilers, molded both to satisfy the aerodynamics, and in supporting the front wheel well. ”
Interiors? The dashboard, for a Ferrari, is original.
“We have set ourselves high goals right away. We wanted the car did an absolute breakthrough and we tried a recognizable language as Ferrari, but very modern, futuristic. The result is a cabin almost concept car. Starting from the bridge, one of the key elements of the transformation was the new interface, the touch screen display by 10.25 inches. The screen is beautiful, but the matter was delicate because we are not used to seeing so great on the Ferrari. And we did not want to lose Ferrari look. The solution was dual cockpit: the bridge with two sides, one for the pilot, the other for the passenger. Shortly before the start of the project we were working on the inside of 488, characterized by a very original cockpit that includes all the functions related to driving, so we decided to replicate it on GTC4Lusso, also on the left side, albeit in a simplified manner, and retaining the enveloping design. When you’re sitting in the car you have the impression that the dashboard is oriented towards you, driver or passenger does the same. This gave us the opportunity to integrate the display in an original way, in the channel between the two cockpits. The console is very important, good divides the interior into two. There are typical of F12 jets, aviation concept … Everything else is designed in a very modern way. There are also inspirations that come from furniture. ”
The strange design of the seats?
“The design with the central ribbon and the broken lines that create a very characteristic cannettatura are the stylistic feature of our racing sessions, at Ferrari we call” Goldrake design “. We have reinterpreted in an elegant key. ”
There is more space inside than the FF?
“Yup. Because we have repositioned the rear H point, so as to give more centimeters to the knees. For the same reason we have revised the backrest of the front seats, sgusciandoli further. Behind it is an excellent habitability. ”
The design of Ferrari always starts from the technical data: performance, aerodynamics and functionality. But if to draw the car are the technical requirements, there is room for creativity?
“The design always starts from the awareness of the product. Ferrari is part of the performance targets, which vary from model to model: an account is the F12 Tour De France, last year, a meteor track, another thing is the GTC4Lusso, which also must be perfect in ‘ aerodynamics, because a car that touches the 335 times you can not afford not to be. Once you understand the technical needs and developed the functional aerodynamic solutions to the objective, the question becomes how to incorporate this into an organic design. And it is this “as” to make a difference. Working on very complex cars like FXX K it turns out that there is always a large great room for interpretation, a space to put the invention. ”
Are you saying that the technical and legal restrictions do not limit?
“The bonds have an alibi. Ferrari have an avalanche more than the other cars, yet our variety of aesthetic solutions is there for all to see: each machine is different, has its own personality, and it is still recognizable as a Ferrari. Every project starts from the functionality, because the form must follow function, but there is always space to include an intention. ”

A colleague once told us that to really know a car you have to touch it, caress it … The best time, he said, is when you wash by hand …
“I understand what he meant. I am an advocate of physical modeling. In Ferrari we use the very virtual, especially to converge on an idea starting from so many proposals. But the crucial step is the clay model, one in which the model is shaped manually: the tactile relationship is as important as the visual one, is to understand how the surfaces are and how they evolve. In excellence Ferrari is also the contribution of our modelers, talented, real artists: their dexterity is imperative to give surfaces that touch of sensuality that can not come from the virtual instruments. ”
What is the most sensual part of GTC4Lusso?
“I am very pleased by the passage-side front fender, with the theme of the tuning fork. But my favorite part is the back: it is a pretty sight. ”
About futuristic cockpits: can you imagine a Ferrari with autonomous driving?
“No. Mind you, if the car you need to move from point A to point B, the autonomous driving is comfortable and functional. But Ferrari do not have this priority order: the man-machine partnership, physical contact, the perfect fusion of a highly evolved technical object and the man who has the ability to take it to the limit can not fail. The autonomous driving is like taking a taxi. The other day I drove on the track a F12Tdf: it was an exciting, extraordinary intensity. A Ferrari is, and will remain, pure driving pleasure “

The recipes are both refined and balanced. And there is a lot of research, experimentation continues. ”

In Italy, even under the pressure of some producers, it starts to get the upper restaurant beer is paired with dishes both as an ingredient. I know that she has dealt with this aspect of the kitchen, especially with combinations of Mexican dishes.

Apple Watch, WatchOS update: 2 will be the revolution of smartwatch?

Native apps and more independence from smartphones could change everything, first of all the applications themselves

Looking at the long term, the announcement of Apple’s biggest event of the fall this year may be less than advertised: development WatchOS 2. Tomorrow will be released and the new release will be a day that could change the relationship we have had up for now with smartwatch. The new operating system from Cupertino, designed specifically for the smart watch, is designed to make the app faster and smoother, since it will run natively on Apple Watch, plus introduces new dials, the ability for third-party app to display information in the form of notifications and an innovative way to see the future events, past and more with Time Travel.

But not only, the OS also includes new communication features such as the ability to respond quickly in Mail with dictation, Smart Replies or emoji, while Digital Touch free creativity, allowing you to use more colors for their own designs.

These components may be the first step to the final explosion of a market that so far only showed great potential. Native apps will allow developers to make the most of the components of the smartwatch, with results currently unthinkable. For example, a dating app could guide us to the soul mate simply following the vibration on the wrist, or an application designed to make you lose weight might block you access to Facebook and Candy Crush, until you have done the right move daily.

Until now smartphone and smartwatch are not comparable as regards the debut: as reported on the US site Techcrunch, in the first quarter sales of mobile phones sold 334 million pieces, watches only 11. But the state of the art in recent years it has changed and the room for maneuver for wearable devices was much narrower than that of the new phones. Yet change and greater independence from the iPhone and the company could revolutionize everything, creating a new need and opening space for new apps, all new and completely rethought. Who knows if it will be the beginning of the decline of smartphones, what is certain is that the smartwatch are intended to carve out an increasingly large and if the foresight of the developers (and Apple) will be repaid, tomorrow will all feel the need to buy us a new watch.
