La Dolce Vita Adaptation Remade

La Dolce Vita Adaptation Remade

One of the biggest movies produced in Italy will make a comeback to the big screen. The classic movie by Federico Fellini will be remade for the modern generation to give it an updated script. But the core of the story will remain in tact. There will only be adaptations on the setting, of course we are now living in a new decade, or better yet a new millenia. It is therefore necessary to give the movie a makeover to appeal to the younger audience.

The new version of the classic movie will be directed by Roberto Benigni, who also have a part in the cast of characters of the movie. Being an eccentric type of person, Benigni will inject his own flavor of movie making and give the movie a whole new perspective. The cast and crew are still being assembled and will be announced once the shooting of the movie starts.

This new movie is somewhat of an offshoot of one of Benigni’s earlier films, A Beautiful Life, which won the accolades of the press when it was released in 1997. That movie earned Benigni instant stardom on the world stage. He became an overnight sensation, and the international media dubbed him as the next big thing in motion pictures.

We should expect an all-star cast for this production, as auditions have already begun and some notable names have read for some of the major characters. People expect a great movie from this group, as the director is also a well-known actor, screenwriter and comedian as well.

Italian National Football Team Hires New Manager

Italian National Football Team Hires New Manager

Following  poor showing in last year’s UEFA Champions League Qualifying tournament, the Italian National Football team, under the supervision of  the Italian Football Federation (FIGC), fired their long-time General Manager Giancarlo Medinacelli at the end of the season. The reason given by management was because he had all the tools to win a championship, he had the personnel to get it over the hill, he was given leeway in personnel-related decisions, yet still he failed to bring home the cup.

The “Gli Azzurri”, as the team is well known all over Italy as an homage to the colors of the Italian flag, will have Jensen Magnusson as the newly promoted general manager. He will inherit a team laden with talent with the core members as holdovers for next season’s tournament. With the new addition, they hope to get over the hump next year and win it all. It is really an all-or-nothing for the team now. That’s how much the nation is expecting from them.

Don’t expect the rest of the league to hand it to you, though. While we have improved with the acquisition of a new GM and some young players selected in the draft, so have the rest of the teams in the league. It is therefore imperative for the team to come together and work hard to win the championship which they have held ten years ago.

Magnusson comes with a great credentials. He was a long-time assistant to the great Sir Alex Fergusson at Manchester United. He stayed there for almost 12 years and has absorbed everything the brilliant mentor shared about the sport. The team hopes he could rub off some of his skills in the football field come next season. For now, it’s on to the practice pitch for the whole team.

New Carabinieri Recruits Deployed

New Carabinieri Recruits Deployed

A new batch of Carabinieri recruits are being deployed in major cities in Italy in response to recent terrorists threats by some major terrorist cells looking to destabilize the country. It is a well-known fact that many terrorists are now targeting innocent civilians to wreak havoc and cause global alarm, panic and chaos. It is very difficult to monitor all the people coming in and out of the country, so there is really a need to increase security measures everywhere.

It is common knowledge that the Carabinieri is the national gendarmieri of Italy, policing both civilian and military populations. As such, they are the perfect security measure which would help tighten the security around major cities and municipalities all over the country. They will surely pose as a deterrent to people or groups of people who have bad intentions in the community.

The Carabinieri are the best trained police and para-military personnel anywhere in the world. They have the toughest training methods, which would ensure that they can respond appropriately when called to service. These group of elite men are also experts in weapons, tactics and bomb diffusion. This alone should quell any fear or tension that the public may feel as an effect of recent unfortunate events involving terrorists.

The latest batch have a number of 700, distributed evenly throughout the country. They will augment the already existing municipal police force to serve their purpose. More personnel will be assigned to bigger cities as there is a greater threat posed by undocumented immigrants settling there.
