My plates of meat are giving me no end of gip at the moment, (I'm also inexplicably lapsing into cockney-speak) so I'm invoking the help of St. Servatus, one of those great Anti-Arian bishops of the 4th Century.
This article in the Telegraph describes the new Italian Foreign Minister - at one stage he described Mussolini as being 'the 20th century's greatest statesman.' If you read Italian, you'll probably get a laugh out of Gianelli's take on the situation. He contrasts the 'black' Condoleza Rice with the 'black' (i.e. 'blackshirt') Fini.
Also in the Corriere della Sera is this beautiful picture of St. Basil's Cathedral, Moscow in the snow.
