Because running is just like writing, George Hirsch will run another Marathon

george

The New York Times celebrates one of NYC’s best runner: George Hirsch, founding Publisher of the New York Magazine and current Publisher of  the main italian cooking magazine in The United States: La Cucina Italiana.He’s not only a nice and warm person, he’s a winner and this wonderful picture of him simply confirm that.I think that as much as you force your body or your brain, there  are no limits on what you can accomplish with legs and thoughts.That’s why running has so many resemblances with writing, and moreover with living. All of them have something to do with your mind and strenght.Hirsch represent the best example of this idea.

“Nessun Dorma!”: al Metropolitan Franco Zeffirelli presenta la sua Turandot

200px-Poster_Turandot

Locandina della Turandot di Giacomo Puccini

 Dopodomani va in scena al Metropolitan Opera  la prima della magica Turandot di Giacomo Puccini.Letteralmente, Turandokht significa figlia di Turan, celebre zona dell’Asia Centrale e parte importante dell’antico Impero Persiano.Il melodramma, ispirato appunto a una favola persiana di nome Les Milles et un jour, rimane tra i più fastosi e carichi di simbolismi di tutto il Novecento.Sfortunatamente, il compositore lucchese non ne vide mai la prima rappresentazione, portata in scena al Teatro La Scala nell’Aprile del 1926 da Franco Alfano, che aveva sostituito il compositore scomparso da oltre un anno per un cancro alla gola.

La messa in scena newyorchese si preannuncia intensa e il maestro Franco Zeffirelli saprà ricreare uno spazio fedele alla versione originale del melodramma.Le grandi masse saranno incorniciate da ricostruzioni  fedeli alla maestosità dei palazzi pechinesi, la scenografia sara’ ricca di comparse e varietà di colori, mentre  le autentiche tonalità delle vesti  ricercate dei personaggi, si  mescoleranno a profumi e ricordi di un Oriente lontano e  perduto per sempre.

Maria Guleghina veste i panni di Turandot, Calaf invece sarà interpretato da Marcello Giordani.Dirige Andris Nelson.

Le rappresentazioni proseguiranno fino all’8 maggio 2010.

Sentite che ne dice il Times…

Testaccio Restaurant lights up Long Island City

It has just opened what it could become the best roman Restaurant of New York City. On Yesterday’s great opening ,the dark wooden, cozy  ambient of Testaccio Restaurant, was packed with all NYC’s Italian viveurs  and filmed by Roma Channel (The Roman soccer team Tv Channel). 

6x8

Chef  Ivan Beacco served his guests a Roman Style (thin and crunchy) Pizza, roasted Porchetta and a mouthwatering  Pasta all’Amatriciana.Their official menu will follow traditional roman recipes, like  Code alla Vaccinara (Braised Oxtail with tomato sauce), Puntarelle (cicory salad), Saltimbocca alla Romana (Veal Scaloppine) and much more.What are the expectations of Ivan and his partners about this new adventure? Certainly to  bring to this modern urban area, a grain of sand of the most lively and entertaining neighbourhood of Rome.Monte Testaccio, in fact,  is not only that, but is mainly referred to a Roman landmark composed of broken amphorae—(ceramic vases) used  for olive oil and  foods brought to feed ancient Rome. Today, these antiques reminiscences mix up with the modernity of  the biggest, sleepless town of the planet.

Long Island City has definately grew up as a New York’s new young neighbourhood and no doubts that Testaccio Restaurant will be one of the best destinations eatery of that area.

47- 30 Vernon Boulevard, Long Island City.NY
