Reminiscences of Stalingrad

One of the most beloved painting by Hitler has been found in the convent of Doksany, 31 miles from Prague, along with others six paintings, as part of Hitler’s private collection that was believed lost.
“Reminiscences of Stalingrad”, painting by Franz Eichhorst in 1943, portraying a German soldier wounded and defeated with a few fellow soldiers hiding in a trench near Stalingrad, is the most valuable and preferred by the Führer. Among the paintings also found the painting by German Paul Herrmann “Curfew for soldiers during the holidays in Nuremberg”, and “End” by Armin Reumann.

FERRARI F12 “little” Touring Car

F12 berlinetta

Italian Ferrari launches its new car sedan called “F12 berlinetta”, (literally  “small touring car”), the progenitor of the new Ferrari 12-cylinder, presented to the Geneva Motor Show. A car with unprecedented performance, a remarkable new engine, aerodynamics and a great design that expresses a classic innovation. It’s the most powerful Ferrari than ever before, due to the extraordinary efficiency achieved on the engine (in terms of mechanics, combustion and fluid dynamics) and the adoption of architecture, components, controls and advanced aerodynamics, which provide the typical thrill of any Ferrari.
The F12berlinetta’s design, a collaboration between Ferrari and Pininfarina Style Centre, is based on the perfect balance between maximum aerodynamic efficiency and elegance of proportion in an original and innovative interpretation of the canons of beauty typical of front-engined Ferrari V12 (6.262 cc,  740 CV). 

Sprint record of 3.1 seconds from 0 to 100 km/h, then taking just others 5.4 seconds to touch 200 km/h. The maximum speed achieved by this new jewel easily exceeds 340 km/h, performance never before seen on a “red” approved for roads and not for F1!
The interior, Frau leather, reflect the sporty personality of this new Maranello production.
At the center of the dashboard, light and sober, stand out the innovative aerators, clearly inspired by aviation in carbon and aluminum alloy. The spaces have been optimized to provide great usability thanks to the rear bench, connected directly to the luggage compartment, easily accessible from the tailgate.
The centrality of the driver, a feature common to all Ferrari, is confirmed by human-machine interface, with all controls clustered around the driver, for the most ergonomic and highly exciting driving experience. How much will it cost ?!

ITALY vs USA

ITALY – USA (0-1)

Genoa, Italy — A historic success because it took over eight decades, for the United States soccer team to beat Italy yesterday, and it can now boast. The victory, on a chilly night, came in a friendly match and not in a tournament, and thanks to the coach Jurgen Klinsmann, who has reshaped the US team. The Americans are competitive on the world stage from long time, but they do not often beat elite teams. “If you beat Italy on their own soil, it means a lot”, Klinsmann said, obviously pleased with his team’s good performance since he took over as coach late last July”. In 10 games under Klinsmann, the U.S. team is 5-4-1, but its four other victories were over Slovenia, Panama, Venezuela and Honduras, none of them near the level of the Italians or European teams, anyway.
The friendly matches are just important for coaches to check if the team works and the capped footballers suitable, then making the opportune changes if necessary. Anyway, till now, the Italian national team (called the “Azzurri”, because their soccer uniforms color) has always win or got a draw during the previous eleven friendly 2012 games.
