ITALIA’S GOT TALENT

2013 ITALIA’S GOT TALENT

italia's got talent

Also this year the Italian version of “Talent show” is over. As you know, this TV show’s format is similar to “American Idol”, born years ago in England, and based on the discovery of new talent, in any discipline.
In this fourth edition of Italy’s Got Talent, started on January 12, last Saturday during the finals, the sixteen finalists have competed to let viewers choose the winner.
As in the past, the three judges have been Maria De Filippi, Gerry Scotti and Rudy Zerbi and the presenters Simon Annicchiarico and Belén Rodríguez (who participated despite being pregnant).
Among them were some who really deserved to win and I want to mention:


Walter Orfei Malachikhine, a sixteen year old boy belonging to the homonymous circus family, which struck the judges with his acrobatic numbers.

Sara Venerucci and Danilo Decembrini, a pair of artistic skaters, three-time world champions.

Daniele and Alessandro Suez, twelve and fifteen years, two brothers acrobAdomako Danielatic dancers who have conquered all with their skill.

Ripalta Bufo, a good 22-year old soprano from Puglia who has performed a difficult song from “La Traviata”.

Ripalta Bufo
Brothers Lo Tumulo (Daniele Sportelli and Elio Angelini), a comedy duo who made us laugh through a macabre comic sense, parodying and joking about death.

Lo Tumulo
The duo Los Hermanos Macana, consisting of two twin brothers (Enrique e Guillermo De Fazi) from Argentina, talented dancers of a “passionate” tango.

Anyway, at televoting among the finalists Adomako Daniel has triumphed, a 21 year old native of Ghana, who has competed in a lyrical piece, a version of “At Last” by Etta James, giving a display of all the nuances of his particular voice.  He is assigned the expected prize of € 100,000. Daniel had already tried his luck at the X-Factor show, a few years ago, but was rejected.

DANIEL ADOMAKO
An important victory for the 21 year old guy from Brescia, who has always had to struggle, even with his father, to show his talent and desire to succeed. He impressed the audience by his celestial voice but by humility and kindness arising from a slight effeminacy.

OBAMA WIN!

I’m really happy that Obama won the election again


Congratulations to you and please go on to pursue your ideas and projects to heal the country’s economy and for equal rights, do not worry about criticism and opponents who only care about their interests. However it will go, you’re writing the history of America and maybe, unluckily,  you’ll be appreciated more in the distant future, as it has happened to many famous historical figures.
Good luck.

THE FRIEND OBAMA

I LIKE THIS

And for two reasons:  because as Neapolitan citizen I like pizza and glad to know that the president also likes it, and because it’s always nice to see a politician as important as the president of the United States of America that acts like our neighbour.  GREAT OBAMA!
Aside from that, I am convinced that at this particular time of global recession, the State needs stability and a long presidential term of office, to let it  carry out and complete its commitments and goals. Unless there are serious and important reasons to change course, the political changes often lead to worse. I’m not American and I can not vote there, but I hope you Americans canvass more with the head than with the skin, basing yourself on words and possible novelties mostly. Please, give confidence to people who have long been working for you and for the future of our children. In your shoes, I still would give credence to Obama.

EURO 2012

ENGLAND – ITALY

Last night Italy charms Italian fans and amazes whole world for his performance against England. Although after the first 10 minutes the race was in favor of the Italian team, forcing the opponent to play more in defense than attack, a series of misfortune and missed goals, gave back a draw. After extra time, where Italy again prevailed upon England, during penalty kicks the fate finally gave to Italian players what they deserved from the beginning: the victory!

Now we expect the semi-finals against Germany.

Great Italy!

NAPOLI FOOTBALL TEAM

Napoli Wins Italian Cup

Napoli team

Today “Il corriere dello sport“, the most important Italian sports newspaper, devoted its front page to the final championship of the “Italian Cup“, writing in large letters:

Great..

Great…

Great Napoli!


Naples
beat Serie A champion Juventus 2-0 yesterday night, inflicting the Bianconeri’s first defeat of the last months. It seemed impossible to beat Juventus this season also if all the Naples’ squad has done something extraordinary these past three years. Anyway, Edinson Cavani broke the deadlock with a penalty and then Marek Hamsik sealed the result with the second goal seven minutes from the end. Everyone talks about Cavani, Lavezzi and Hamsik, an exceptional group that Naples’s fans call “the three tenors”. Also if it’s almost certain to have been the last game for Lavezzi in the Napoli football team (perhaps will be the Paris Saint Germain to buy The tree tenorshim), and for this he probably has cried at the end of the game, near the cup. At the end of the game, at night, hundreds of thousands of people have took the street to celebrate the event, a flood of euphoric young people  went on a binge until dawn. Just arrived from Rome, the “blue football team” has risen on a open sightseeing bus and toured the city to greet the warm Neapolitans. The bus moved through the delirious crowd, while the players aboard showed excited the cup. They were 25 years that Napoli football team didn’t win this trophy, since the superstar Maradona time. The whole city has enjoyed because too many years that the team had not won a trophy; a team that for unknown reasons is always mistreated by other teams and sports critics (sometimes small teams from the South bother, evidently!), although in recent years it has proven to be a great team, as it even had defeated Chelsea in the knockout stage of the Champions League, which is now the European champion. Therefore, beyond the cup, there is the satisfaction and the revenge of an entire city and of many fans who, for better or for worse, they always follow their favorite team.

I rejoiced with them and now can only repeat GREAT NAPOLI!

ITALIA’S GOT TALENT 2012

THE WINNER

This year, for the third edition of the show Italia’s Got Talents the winner has been Stefano Scarpa, a 21-years-old worker keen of gymnastic. His uncommon performance captured the audience from the first appearance on TV. It’s a pleasure to watch his performance, by a simple perch and his strength but with gracefulness and harmony.
A specialty called “acropole flag man“, where the body is governed by the mere force of arms, and  held in equilibrium by using the pole and making changes. His performance  is a real challenge to the force of gravity. “It’s a discipline – his trainer said – which came from the combination of multiple specialties, artistic gymnastics, floor exercise and martial arts. Just a mix of a series of complex acrobatic movements, a communion of many discipline’s elements  that need a long training”. Stefano says that thanks to the prize money (200.000 €) he will be able to pay the new car, make a trip and then get married.
