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.”

Kobe Bryant says goodbye to basketball. Here is his Top Five
“Dear basketball … I love you.” With a moving letter Kobe Bryant says goodbye to basketball. He will leave at the end of the season after twenty years of rule: five NBA titles, the third scorer of all time, twice MVP of the Finals. Here are his five unforgettable nights
“Dear Basketball, from the moment I wore the socks of dad and I imagined to realize winning baskets in the Great Western Forum I knew one thing was true: I was falling in love with you.” Thus began the long letter in which Kobe Bryant has announced his retirement. Words of love for a sport that has given him everything and which, in return, he gave so much. A star, a living legend. Five NBA titles, third all-time scorer behind Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Karl Malone, a slew of records and superhuman performance. For different reasons, here are the five best evenings of Black Mamba second GQ.
The night of the 81
The January 22, 2006 are the conference finals NFL. Los Angeles Lakers-Raptors is destined to end in the middle of the sports news. But in newsrooms they have to overturn the ladders. Bryant realizes 81 points: this is the second best performance ever in the history of the NBA, behind only the 100 points of Wilt Chamberlain’s March 2, 1962.
The 62 in three quarters against Dallas
The 81 against the Raptors had a preamble equally historic. On 20 December 2005 Kobe was in fact able to achieve 62 points in just three quarters of the game (30 in the third quarter) against the Dallas Mavericks. In the same period the opponents they had made 61. Kobe-62-61 Dallas, you got it. The game will end for the Lakers 112-90 and Bryant will rest the final portion of the game finishing with 18/31 from the field and 22/25 from the line.
Standing ovation from the Madison Square Garden
Madison Square Garden is the playground of any sport. The theater where everyone dreams of performing at their best. Kobe succeeds on the evening of February 2, 2009. On the other hand, with the Knicks, Danilo Gallinari is in the field. This is also why many Italians are connected with the other side of the ocean and enjoying the fine night of the phenomenon of the Lakers. Score 61 points, improving the record until then belonging to Bernard King in December 1984, he came to share 60. Kobe left the field when there are 108 seconds the final buzzer. The Madison Square Garden stands up for a long standing ovation.
One against five at TD Garden
Game 5 of the 2010 Finals against the Boston Celtics. The series is at 2-2 and the Lakers suffer. In the third quarter Kobe tries to play the position. As? Making it clear in his own way to his companions that he’s there to guide them. Mark 19 of the 26 points scored by the Lakers in the 12 minutes after the interval. Seventeen in a row in the middle are also a basket impossible in the face of Ray Allen and a triple to nearly 9 meters. Flavio Tranquillo and Federico Buffa, who comment on those games for Sky Sports, say: “Kobe is on an island.” Close to 38 without being able to win the game. But then we come to the race-7 and the ring there will be his.
Without Shaq and ankle
Game 4 of the Finals 2000. We are at the dawn of his career. Kobe wears jersey number 8, has a full head of hair on his head and has not won a title. There will come a few days later thanks to this extraordinary performance. Not so much in terms of numbers, if I may say so as realized 28 points and scored the shot away the Indiana Pacers (120-117) in a few seconds from the siren. This match will be remembered above all the additional played without Shaquille O’Neal (36 points and 21 rebounds) and the entire evening on the pitch despite an ankle injury that seemed to even keep it away from the parquet. Factors not prevent Kobe to start writing his legend.

Casiraghi and Borromeo families of fairytale weddings

Formal as her sisters, Lavinia and Isabella, majestic as the grandmother of him, Grace Kelly, or fairytale like Andrea and Tatiana. To be inspired Beatrice for yes to Pierre?

Double ceremony, one in the Principality of Monaco, his house Pierre Casiraghi, one of the Borromean Islands, owned by the family of her, Beatrice Borromeo. Double, triple, quadruple feast. Result, a caravan of high society guests that will be at stake from the French Riviera to the shores of Lake Maggiore for two challenging weekend of parties and receptions from Saturday, July 25.

The marriage of Pierre Casiraghi and Beatrice Borromeo does speak for days. Inevitable: their families have given membership in the last 30 years, gossip, gossip columns and above all a rich sequence of fairytale weddings. In particular those of the sisters Borromeno.

But with such a legacy to those who will really inspire Pierre and Bea for their wedding? Formal style in homage to the label of the Grimaldi Palace, where civil weddings are celebrated and sober Cavagnetu (picnic in the garden in Monegasque dialect) or Renaissance splendor under the coat of arms with three balls of the Borromeo? To these we should also styled Casiraghi: Carolina has given to his children one coops life certainly high, but low profile. From the choice of them grew up in Provence, far from the Palace.

Not to upset anyone the two young men have decided to double the party.
The former model, now a journalist, nephew of Marta Marzotto is the fifth and last child of Charles Borromeo, the last patriarch of one of the most historic and important families of the north: three sisters females, Lavinia, Isabella and Matilde and a son, Carlo. Four countesses tall, blond, thin and chilly-looking that made important marriages, then the sources of inspiration and advice to Beatrice certainly not lacking even if, on closer inspection, the marriages of his sisters Borromeo they all look alike.

Lavinia (now 38 years) inaugurated the trend by marrying John Elkann, then vice president of Fiat, September 4, 2004: religious ceremony on Isola Madre, receipt in the Hanging Gardens of Isola Bella. All the world of high finance Italian was invited. Berlusconi, then prime minister, arrived by helicopter with Gianni Letta. She had a real princess dress by Valentino with veil family (ça va sant say) and tiara grandmother. The witnesses were the brothers Beatrice and Charles, father of brothers only because Lavinia, Isabella and Matilde, Carlo Borromeo had them with Marion Zota, Bea and Charles with Paola Marzotto, daughter Marta, who blondes and ethereal Borromeo they love like a real grandmother and that, like a real grandmother, she oversaw suille good choices double of all four.

Wedding photocopy, a year later, those of Isabella, the eldest, with the tankers Ugo Brachetti Peretti: ivory gown by Valentino, veil family. Only after the ceremony on Isola Bella celebrated the Rocca d’Angera (also owned by the family). And at the Rocca materializes, July 30, the receipt grandest wedding of Pierre and Beatrice: the Rock, it will be closed to the public from July 30 to August 2.

The last Borromeo to get married in white Valentino, among the stone statues on Isola Bella was Matilde, in June 2011, his wife went to Antonius Von Furstenberg, prince of the royal family of Germany. Only variant script Borromeo, the bride was very pregnant.

The only one to come out of the male choir Carlo, penultimate in succession: hippe chic ceremony in Pantelleria, in a field overlooking the sea at sunset, with seating on hay and white shawls. Bucolic his yes to socialite Marta Ferri (daughter of photographer Fabrizio and Barbara Frua de Angeli) in July 2012.

1130eb09-4e4b-4fa5-8841-cda987e7b331

For the Italian part of the festivities is to be expected therefore that the script somehow happen again equal to the sisters, given the choice of celebrating the rite on the lake, but perhaps Isolino di San Giovanni, more secluded location than the majestic Island Beautiful.

weddings-grimaldi Certainly, the part of Monaco’s wedding will be the most simple: everything except the evening party at Jimmy’z, will take place in the Palace closed, as was the case for the parents of Pierre, Carolina and Stefano Casiraghi and Andrea and Tatiana Santo Domingo. One can be sure, perhaps, the marriage to which that of Pierre and Bea will resemble less, at least as atmosphere, to Uncle Albert Charlene Wittstock: cast too, too many royal families invited, bride too rigid.

Beatrice, you know, is quite another kind. Maybe more like the sister Tatiana Santo Domingo, that the yes with Andrea Casiraghi is presented in civil saldali thong Palace. And then he wanted a second episode, religious, indeed, enchanted, under the snow in Gstaad, hooded in a Valentino dress, in cascades of flowers and crystals. Chic, but not easy.

Even Pierre, despite being the son of a Grimaldi, during his childhood he spent much time in the countryside of Provence rather than the Rocher. He and the Borromeo, basically mean part of the jet set, but with the royal families have little to disappear. And then it was not just Beatrice to have declared in an interview: “The aristocracy is just crap anachronistic”?

HISTORY OF SKIING: 150 YEARS OF WINTER TOURISM IN SWITZERLAND.

In 1864 Johannes Badrutt, owner of the guesthouse Faller St. Moritz (now the renowned Hotel Klum) gave its guests a British proposal that sounded like a provocation: come on holiday in the Engadine in winter. A proposal for those times very strange, given that the mountain was considered only a summer destination. To encourage its customers, Badrutt promised free lodging and travel reimbursed if the experience was not welcome and they found the mild and sunny climate that had promised. Thus he was born, 150 years ago, winter tourism and with it the sports related to the snow. In fact, the first alpine skiing in Swiss territory dates back to a few years ago, 15 to be precise. In 1849, Johann Josef Imseng, pastor of the Saas Valley, had to go down to help a patient. He tied two wooden boards at the feet and launched himself down the snowy slope. Here is the first descent on skis, from Saas-Fee to Saas Grund. At the turn of the ‘800 and’ 900 developed tobogganing, skating, hockey, curling, introduced by British tourists come and sports practiced by the elite. It was instead the development of skiing to make “popular” winter sports and the Winter Olympics in St. Moritz, in 1928, were it a real watershed in this regard. St. Moritz, Davos, Zermatt and Gstaad were the first town to develop and become known internationally after the war, and even today are destinations elite and must of winter tourism, especially in the collective imagination as in reality. The development of the lifts and trains – icon of the Swiss Alps – did the rest. Today in Switzerland there are 1,800 ski lifts and the Swiss mountains, where 150 years ago was invented winter tourism, they are still the favorite destinations for those who love to spend their winter holidays on skis.
