School hours in Italy

Milan, Italy in 72 Hours

City view from MGallery Uptown Palace“Milan is one of those cities that you need to know and have rifled your way through, like a good book, ” said Kristen Scott Thomas, the prolific British/French actress. I rifle through as much of Milan as I can, trying to pack the long and short of its story and colorful pages into 72 hours. In this pulsating city, that is no small feat. It’s during an evening cocktail respite — to break up my tour of discovery — that I meet Scott Thomas. We’re at the Grand Visconti Palace, a historic hotel on the outskirts of Milan’s city center that’s part of a collection of “hotels with a soul, ” for which Scott Thomas is an ambassador. I guess, like me, she is drawn to places with character more than glitz and glamour.

We talk about The English Patient, in which she starred. “It was a good film, wasn’t it?” I take it as a rhetorical statement more than a question. Reflecting on the film, I surmise this actress surely knows about the role of “soul.” (She played the tragic character that the Englishman fell in love with before he became the “patient.”) Scott Thomas transports herself, she says, in film. I transport myself in travel, and so the next morning, I continue on my discovery of Milan’s soul. Here’s some of the best of what I found:

Piazza Duomo

Piazza del Duomo is the heart of Milan, an enormous, sweeping plaza that marks the city center. Majestically towering over the plaza is one of the largest cathedrals in the world, the Duomo, a gothic structure completed over the course of 500 years. From its rooftop I can see the 135 spires of Milan (or at least, that’s what my guide says; I take her word for it). In front of the cathedral, I watch the square coming alive as Milan wake ups. Birds flock, children play, tourists pose, couples steal kisses.Duomo Cathedral It’s like a bustling town square of old, complete with a central fountain but updated with iPods and Armani suits. On a sunny day, like the one I am experiencing, it’s glorious.

I stroll through a huge archway into the adjacent Galleria Vittorio Emanuele, an elegant, open air shopping arcade named for an Italian king (who perhaps liked shopping). The galleria is architecturally stunning, in the shape of a Latin cross and crowned with a glass dome. The coat of arms of the House of Savoy, which ruled the region for centuries, is depicted in a large mosaic centered on the floor. Encircling it are the symbols of Italy’s four major cities: the wolf of Rome, the lily of Florence, the bull of Turin, and Milan’s red cross on white. Like everywhere in Milan — even in a shopping gallery — works of art take front and center placement.

No, what he is doing is not "being a man" it's

by Dax01

Being selfish.
I put my wife through school working long hours at crappy jobs. She worked and went to school. The pay off? *WE* are better off for not only my sacrifice, but hers.
So you supported him? Did you ask him to check his dick in at the door when he came home? The "Take care of me." statement is not realistic unless he is yanking some serious money, you both have no bills, credit cards, vehicles or rent/mortgage every month.
But since you live in the real world, he needs to relearn what a real man is. And for fucks sake, please do not tell me "It's an Italian thing"

Siege ends minutes after it finally makes

Broadcast news in US
SIEM REAP, Cambodia - Four masked gunmen seized dozens of children at an international school in Cambodia on Thursday, killing a 3-year-old Canadian boy before police raided the building and freed the remaining hostages after an hours-long standoff, the government and police said. The attackers were arrested.
The men stormed Siem Reap International School earlier Thursday, seizing dozens of young children from several countries — also including Australia, Japan and Italy — and demanding money, weapons and a vehicle before police ended the standoff, with witnesses reporting several shots fired

Students Demand Wars In Easier To Find Countries

"How Come No One Fights in Big Famous Nations Anymore?" They Ask
Washington, D.C. ( — A delegation of American high school students today demanded the United States stop waging war in obscure nations such as Afghanistan, Kuwait, and Bosnia-Herzegovina, and instead attack places they've actually heard of, such as France, Australia, and Austria, unless, they said, those last two are the same country.
"Shouldn't we, as Americans, get to decide where wars are?" asked sophomore Kate Shermansky.
"People claim we don't know as much geography as our parents and grandparents, but it's so not our fault," Josh Beldoni, a senior at Fischer High School in Los Angeles, told the Senate Armed...

Dog sitting

by dgsitter

When I was younger, my neighbor asked me to take care of her dog. My neighbor was a school teacher and she was nice looking. Her husband had won a trip to Italy and they were going to be gone for two weeks. I agreed to watch the dog, but did not know what change was about to enter my life.
The first two days were normal, but my older cousin came to visit on the third day. He came over to the house with me, and he disappeared while I was feeding the dog. I found him in my neighbors panty drawer. I got angry with him and told him to get out. He told me how nice they felt on you, and they were fun to masturbate with

Culinary schools in Italy?

I would be interested in going to college in Italy. However, I'm looking for a serious culinary school that offers Baking & Pastry. It couldn't be anything geared toward tourists. Is there anything similar to say Culinary Institute of America (CIA) or Johnson & Wales (JWU) in Italy where I can earn a degree or the Italian equivalent? Thank you! I need the help.

In Italy you have to attend a five-year vocational school named "Istituto Professionale Alberghiero" in order to become a professional chef, sous-chef or maitre'd. There are 361 of them in the whole country, for some of which there is a long "waiting list" for would-be pupils.

Other than that, there are lots of culinary schools but they are all private and costly, and their qualifications are not recognized internationally.

Culinary school in Italy?

Has anbody heard of Italian institute of advanced culinary and pastry arts? I am planning to join their 3 month all inclusive course in January 2012. Could anybody tell me if it's any good and if it has any job prospects after that?

From what I see it's a trap for gullible foreign wannabe chefs. The website doesn't give you any explanation about the owners and the teachers, and it's definitedly NOT a school accredited by the Italian government.

Save your hard-earned cash for something more serious. In Italy real schools for chefs and catering professionals are called IPSSAR (Istituto Professionale di Stato per i Servizi Alberghieri e della Ristorazione) and definitely won't cost you an arm and a leg for tuition, though some of them have a lengthy waiting list...

Culinary summer schools?

Hiya everyone, happy holidays...
alright, so my question is what are the best summer schools to learn how to cook....preferably pastries and sweets, however i wouldn't mind a full course either...
i'm a self-taught cook, and quite amatuer-ish and i would love to take a summer course in paris or italy. i've been searching for a while now but i havent found the right one. (i dont speak italian nor french, and i was wondering if they teach it in english???)

They have a list of culinary schools and how long their programs are, how much, if they are taught in English and they have the links to the websites school.
