The Italian cup final in Rome

-Next Sunday Rome will be hosting the final of the Italian cup: Inter versus Palermo, a really exciting match


The Italian Cup 2010/2011 will be played on 29 May in Rome, at the stadium “Olimpico” between Inter and Palermo.

The Sicilians secured a spot in the final after a shock 2-1 defeat of newly crowned Serie A champions AC Milan in Sicily, completing a 4-3 aggregate victory.

Palermo president Maurizio Zamparini has issued a warning to Inter; the fiery club president promises that his team will beat Massimo Moratti’s side


“Now we’re going to the final and we’ll beat Inter 3-1,” he said.

Although he’s predicted a win, it’s clear that he is nervous.

“I will only celebrate after we’ve won the Italian Cup.”

The 1-1 against Roma has allowed the “Nerazzurri” to pull the pass for the final act. The decisive goal was scored by Eto’o. The condition of Eto’o is probably the best news for the “Nerazzurri”, in view of the final rush.

Vinicio Capossela, prophet of the sea, visits Rome

Vinicio Capossela has earned a special place in the Italian musical scene for his idyosincratic mix of Italian folk music and literary references. Next May the singer will offer a concert in Rome to perform some of the songs from his new album, inspired by the sea.

vinicio capossela 43This event will end the first part of the tour that Capossela will resume next summer, with new shows inspired by the sea (as the myth wants). “Marinai,Profeti e Balene” (Sailors, Prophets and Whales) is Capossela’s new album, edited three years after his previous work “Da solo”. The new album, inspired by the sea, is full of sounds, stories and characters, typical of Capossela; it includes songs taken from important literary works like Melville’s “Moby Dick”, Louis Ferdinand Céline “minore”, or Coleridge’s “Ballad of the old Mariner”; furthermore, Capossella often references the “omeric” classic mythology re-visiting the “Golia”, Aedo, the Syrens of Ulisses and the “Nostos”(a feeling seamen get when they are travelling).


Caposssela is an artistic, curious, and playful man; his performances are a mix of music, theater and literature. He recorded voice and piano for this album in Creta Island, Berlin , Milan and in the “Aragonese” Castle on Ischia Island because, he says, “it’s a place of asceticism and there, you can always hear the sound of the sea”. Capossela defines “Marinai,Profeti e Balene” as “Marina Commedia”, “a metaphoric album about the great questions of mankind”.
