    Gianmaria Testa (17 October 1958 in Cavallermaggiore - 30 March 2016 in Alba) The author of this article was a great Italian musician that just passed away. His very poetic songs tell the lives of ordinary people, immigrants and workers. We would like to say good bye to Gianmaria with this special description of Alba, his birthplace.

    In a fiery new book described as a “pamphlet,” the authoritative archaeologist Salvatore Settis attacks Venice. For Settis, the beloved but troubled lagoon city has now become nothing more than a merchandise mall, in which there is just one inhabitant for every 600 tourists trotting through. Today, the local population had sunk to only 56,684 as of June 2014 whereas, in an almost terrifying contrast, the city has 6 million visitors annually.
