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.”

The myths of half a century of skiing celebrated the Saslong

A few degrees less and snow would fall.
The World Cup jubilee celebrations in Val Gardena started under a knock-and-tearful rain and with the white flakes topped only on the summit of the Saslong.
To give that touch of originality the presence of two camels, almost a sign of gratitude to the animal from which they have named a series of jumps along the Saslong (“the camel’s goblins”).
The number one event of the 50th anniversary competition under the Fis brand in Val Gardena (there will be other events in the Cup of the Cup in December) has been a good involvement of the local population, many athletes of the past and new generations, somehow tied to the Saslong, the championship track that was initially snatched by a certain Karl Schranz, the most reputed Austrian who described it as a “highway”.
Scrolling through the anniversaries it turns out that the one between the Val Gardena and the great Alpine World Cup skiing was a love intended to last over the years.
In fact, the spark struck a significant day, that of Valentine’s Day in 1969.
On February 14, 48 years ago, Saslong won the Swiss Jean-Daniel Dätwyler. Why then 50 years if the first Cup is 1968? In 1967 the World Cup was started in Val Gardena and in the Ladin valley there were already some Fis A competitions organized in the Cup calendar.
Since 1972, then after the 1970s World Cup, the free fall of the Cup (since 2002 also the Supergigante) is always played in December, following Christmas.
Heart of the Saturday party was Santa Cristina where past champions and athletes gathered together with old-fashioned clothing and museum equipment. To frame, so many fans come to the event. A colorful party accompanied by the notes of various musical bands.
The parade brought the present along the Dursan Street from the Dosses-Maciaconi to the Iman Center, where a number of interesting panels had been set up that highlighted some of the most salient moments of the races in Val Gardena. At first, he could not miss the picture of pioneer Erich Demetz (he was then the longest president of the World Cup) to leave for the Fis 1967 conference in Beirut. Unpublished photos also on the 1970 World Cup panel, but above all the great interest in the parallel epic on Ronc di Ortisei between Gustav Thöni and Ingemar Stenmark, one of the most beautiful and exciting moments in the history of skiing.
To remember that event dated March 23, 1975 was the blue Helmuth Schmalzl that day was there. “The world cup was in three: Klammer, Stenmark and Gustavo. To take Klammer out of the dispute, I thought, who eliminated him after a few shifts, “recalled the former blue city who then had a past as responsible for Fis security.
Images also recalled the famous jump of Uli Spieß of December 15, 1980 that 100 kilometers from the second to the third camel’s hump jumped over 70 meters in length to a height of about 10 meters.
They could not miss the pictures of the companies “Crazy Canucks”, in particular that of Rob Boyd on 13 December 1986 and 12 of the following year. The first was remembered by Michael “Much” Mair, second only 14 cents from Canadian.
“When I was tired of winning with 39, Boyd fell and using a run that had accelerated in the meantime beat me,” reminded the ex-Pusteria. In some editions, there have been real surprises from those who came down with high numbers. On all the German Max Rauffer in 2004.
Then there was a picture of the reliefs brought to Giorgio Piantanida, a dramatic flyer on the descent of December 16, 1989.
A long parenthesis was devoted to Kristian Ghedina, present at the festivities with his red racing suit but above all with a embalmed roe deer in his hand, remembering that arrival of the 2004 descent when a roe deer went on the final schuss while passed “the Ghedo”. The Ampezzo jet on the Saslong won four times (1996, 1998, 1999 and 2001) as the Austrian Klammer.
Among them are Herbert Plank, the first and only South Tyrolean to win the free on Salsong. It was December 18, 1977 when the vipitenese left behind the Austrians Wirnsberg and Klammer. It was not present because of training in South America Werner Heel, who on December 19 won in Superg. On the stage for a greeting and a sign of recognition

Cavalli and Versace in the land of the ayatollahs

Opened in Tehran the first boutique of Italian high fashion in Iran after-embargo

Seductive and glamorous evening gowns, leather miniskirts perfect in every detail, over the knee boots with stiletto heels. The ladies in the chador ‘Tehran-good’ will rub their eyes and wonder if it’s all true. Yes, it’s all true. In Iran post-embargo was opened the first luxury boutiques and single-brand of Made in Italy and to sign it is the Florentine designer Roberto Cavalli. (Elisa Pinna by Ansa – Tehran)

In short, in a month, it will also open a Versace store and insignia are ready, alongside those of horses, at 1 Alef North Street, Zaferaniyeh, one of the most elegant and rich of the Iranian capital. The Cavalli shop, a two-story structure built to the smallest detail – from the colors lights marble – as indicated by the Italian brand, is crowded. The prices do not scare, although a jacket can cost several thousand Euros, or worse, in the Iranian currency, tens and tens of millions of riyals.

Iran is experiencing a slice of the population that does not have money problems and is eager to taste the ‘joie de vivre’, if only within their own homes. Thus, an Iranian entrepreneur, Medhi Firouzan, president of KelideTalaei, along with Abbas Firouzan, and a third partner, Moezeddini, has thought to ask the franchise for the Republic of the ayatollahs of fashion brands and Italian luxury, one of the most popular products and appreciated in the world. The operation started two years ago, when Iran was still under slap by the international community.
Italians, however, designers have believed in the potential of a young market, cultured, hungry for culture and, in some groups, wealthy.

Thus, the first flag planted by Italy at the end of economic sanctions in Iran was in one of its areas of excellence. The members of the Iranian project is ambitious. “We want to transform Alef Street in via Montenapoleone in Tehran,” said Mehdi Firouzan ANSA, referring to the famous Milanese luxury street. “We asked Ferragamo, Armani, to other Italian and even European designers to open their single-brand stores in Iran. What we want more of our people is the quality of life and we want to offer it. Italy can help us” , he stressed. “The high fashion can become a bridge to bring Europe to Iran and to bring a future Iran to Europe,” added Abbas Firouzan.

So far in the Islamic Republic luxury garments made in Italy you could be found occasionally in some stores, but with a reduced choice to minimum and with a high risk of purchasing counterfeit products. The opening of the Cavalli store marks the start of a new season. The desire to change step is confirmed by Hanayeh, a young man of thirty degree in chemical engineering who, fascinated by the world of fashion, she decided to work in the new Cavalli boutique. “Iran is not the dark country, closed, violent which is described in foreign newspapers. Far from it,” he says. “A week ago, when we were still closed, people flocked to the windows, curious and proud that Tehran had finally such a store.”

Halloween ghost town between 9 History, abandonment and legends
Disasters massacres through the former mining operations: a review of some of the abandoned places more disturbing (and sometimes painful) in the world
And if you decide to spend Halloween in some place really scary, which would you choose? Nothing is easier: without doubt a ghost town, a ghost town remained steadfast to the time when, for various reasons (sometimes dramatic), has been emptied. Crystallizing over time items, suggestions, memories and moods.
From violence to disasters, disturbing legends to former industrial sites, scientific or extraction through horrific Nazi massacres about which there is still a long time to reflect – and far beyond the pretext of consumer macabre festivities Anglo – the cities are abandoned by far some of the most fascinating places, sometimes in spite of ourselves and them, on the face of the earth.
Skyscanner, the portal and app compare flights, hotels and car rental from 40 million visitors a month, he has put together nine. There is for example the isla de las Muñecas, the Mexican island of dolls south of the capital, already home hermit Julian Santana Barrera, popular tourist attraction in fact underpinned by puppets linked to the mysterious death of a girl.
Or the island of Hashima, Japan, also known as the island of the battleship, which houses an abandoned plant for the extraction of coal used in 2012 for Chapter Skyfall 007 and the following year for the Thai horror H Project. It closed the plant in 1974, died the settlement.
Then there is the history, the one with a capital. What you need to know, rather than visit – not least because, at least in the next case, you can not. Heartbreaking, tragic, bloody. That example of Pripyat, in the North of Ukraine at 110 km from Kiev, abandoned after the Chernobyl nuclear disaster of the close of 1986. Or the pain of Oradour-sur-Glane the French village of Limousin theater of the Nazi massacre of 10 June 1944: a reprisal over defenseless citizens for killing, by some partisans, the greater the SS Helmut Kämpfe. During the action 642 people were slaughtered and the country was set on fire: an impressive memorial outdoors, never rebuilt, still to this day.
Then there is Kolmanskop, Namibia, the diamond and site based German miners in search of fortune: a Central European city (with a ballroom, hospital, theater, casino) kind to the early ‘900 in the middle the Namib Desert. Desert, on the other, since 1954 has quickly taken its place engulfing most of the buildings. Another desert, that of the North of Chile, was instead the scene of the largest deposit of saltpeter in the world. Someone near refineries Humberstone and Santa Laura, live there still, but most of the buildings are empty and dilapidated. Since 2005 he is one of the most bizarre heritage protected by UNESCO.
The review of the portal closes first with Port Arthur, Tasmania, Australia, for years penal colony and frame eponymous massacre of 1996, one of the heaviest in terms of human life: Martin Bryant, originating in a suburb of the capital Hobart, in fact he crushed by blows of a firearm the lives of 35 people, wounding 21. Captured, he was sentenced to 35 life sentences.
Then with Bodie, in the Sierra Nevada in California, Mono County about 120 km south-east of Lake Tahoe, classic mining town from the Wild West. Finally with Grytviken, small village of South Georgia (not the US but the archipelago of the Atlantic not far from the Antarctic Circle, British territory claimed by Argentina): an abandoned whaling station in 1966. It houses today have a scientific station, a museum on cetaceans and a chapel.

Uncle Scrooge is better than Cyan.

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.

The mayor of Livorno: “Yes, there are contacts with Disney – explains Filippo Nogarin quoted by Corriere.it – ​​the idea, the fully endorse although inevitably create some controversy. I never thought of myself as a boy to turn the monument to Cyan in Chest of Scrooge ‘Scrooge, I told the story several months ago about a Facebook group. With a few friends we took the measures, but then it all came to more than anything. ” Obviously it is excited Daniele Caluri: “The first hurdle, and perhaps insurmountable one, is to get permission from the authorities – says the fans – we can try it in different ways. For example by signing the petition. ” The monument to Cyan, according to the original plan, would have to be made up of a large base (one currently left) and a marble statue, 12 meters high, the hierarch.

Eroica 2015

Eroica 2015
On the roads of Chianti, in the Siena hills, pouring rain and thousands of people from all parts of the world, we were there which always pursue that poem written by bicycle

For people like me, in the early eighties, with the bike began to challenge their forces on the first climb of the church, on the mountain that could be seen on the horizon then, any bike was racing bikes. The one with drop handlebars, the pedals with toe clips and terrible strap, the gear levers on the chassis, brake wires that crossed in front of the nose when he crouched in the aerodynamic position, five crowns on the freewheel and rear tubular disconnect to bites if foravi, but that they turned on the rim if frenavi too downhill. And then there were the shirt and pants blacks wool, those with the deerskin to the saddle and harness, the paper of the Gazette under the shirt to make the descents, the helmets to leather straps, which fortunately did not He is falling ever! The bicycle was freedom, adventure was, was hard, cycling was one man alone in the lead, Breton crafty as a rate, frozen food in the storm of the Gavia, was above all a dream, a dream for me, for everyone, He has died at Madonna di Campiglio, with the ultimate interpreter of the cycling boarding, the last who ran the old, even if riding a modern bike.

Yes, because then came the bike modern, very special carbon, the change in the brake levers, the high-profile wheels, ten, eleven wreaths on the rear wheel, the clipless pedals and technical fabrics that withstand all weather conditions, bike light like feathers with which to climb on the walls. Fatigue remained, the beauty of a rose of a thousand bends or a descent with curves by brush, have not changed, that is nuanced taste epic passage from the bottle, the arrival of color TV and on shorts, led away with the gray, the charm of Black Legs.

A few years ago, when I heard for the first time L’Eroica, I fell in love immediately, unconditionally, a race, that race is not, because there is a first come, and there is a prize to be awarded, the prize is just the satisfaction of having finished, that is the one to forty or two hundred and nine kilometers, because the paper is a walk enogastranomica flavor of yesteryear, the Chianti wine in straw fiasco, to do strictly with those bikes the , those of my first Sgambati, and if possible, older still, with wool sweaters, leather of his boots, mittens perforated, and the tubular spare shoulder.

For all the departure and arrival it is at Gaiole in Chianti, after an up and a down hills, riding on paved roads now now on the roads of dirt, Tuscan heritage and humanity, streets that still have the taste of that the cycling, that fans feel any nag the Coppi of Cuneo Pinerolo. Last weekend, I was lucky enough to experience the atmosphere of the Eroica, I crossed lovers from all over the world, of all ages: French, Scottish, English, Japanese, American, Russian, Polish, Dutch, German, Italian, to name only those with whom I happened to chat, someone pulled as a professional, someone with physical rugby player and the sponsor theme, someone, including myself, with a gate with wheels, someone with the bike then better preserved of the crown jewels, with other relics of the early twentieth century.

I cycled only the short path, not too many years I climbed on the bike racing, but during those 46 kilometers – almost all in the pouring rain which made it even more heroic path – have awakened the dormant feelings, the desire to look for challenge, to make the climb faster than the companion of the moment, to joke in the group, track, track, “I’ve got an evil in the legs that I do not restrain you so”, snorting jumped to a report on the most beautiful, ride in the group, in a fairytale. All and sundry from the path he had chosen to ride together in the values ​​of cycling, the sport declined in the wonderful spirit that the creators were able to evoke, with the sense of solidarity in the effort and openness to new friends and we are committed to the end, to honor the myth that our host and the myths that have cycled with us. And now working to make the eighty next year!
