Marvel Movie | Filming in Tropea

It looks like The Marvel‘s production is going to Italy, as the governor of Tropea, Giovanni Macrì announced that the film will be heading to the Italian town to shoot a scene for the film. It’ll start production there on August 27th but no end date has been announced. They also don’t go into detail about who will be involved with the shoot, as it’s also uncertain if what they are filming will take place in this town, or it might even become the background for an alien planet.

Tropea is a resort located in the province of Vibo Valentiana in Calabria. It even won the “most beautiful village in Italy” award back in 2021. Now what is interesting is that there’s a lot of history surrounding the city, as the location is where Hercules returned after finishing his labors. The Marvel universe is no stranger to the Greek half-god, and it would be unexpected if he appears in the film.

David L | UK | Sold Property in Pizzo Beach Club | Testimonial

Dear Richard

I want to thank you for your help in selling my property. The service you provided was absolutely first rate. I had been trying to sell my property on the Pizzo Beach complex for some time before engaging your services and from there on in I was in safe hands.

You and your team provided a complete service, from tracking down necessary documents through the Italian legal system, to arranging for utilities to be transferred over and surplus furniture to be disposed of, as well as, of course, finding a buyer for my property.

You kept me fully appraised throughout the whole process and on the rare occasions I needed to speak to you, you were easy to get hold of and always appeared to have the answers at your fingertips. 

It’s rare to come across such a thoroughly professional outfit as yours and I wish you every success in the future.

If you feel it would be useful, I am happy to act as a referee for any prospective new clients.

Thank you & Good Luck


David L

Travelling to Italy | Summer 2021 | EU Digital Locator FORM

Currently all clients traveling to Italy have to fill out an European Digital Passenger Locator Form.

What is the European Digital Passenger Locator Form (dPLF) ?

Passenger Locator Forms (PLFs) are used by public health authorities to facilitate contact tracing in case travelers are exposed to an infectious disease during their travel by plane, ship (cruise/ferry), rail, bus or automobile. Information that travelers provide in PLFs can be used by public health authorities in destination countries to rapidly contact travelers, with the goal of protecting the health of travelers’ and their contacts, as well as preventing further disease spread.

Countries that require completion of PLF are currently using paper-based passenger locator forms or have developed national online systems. In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, a web application for a European Digital Passenger Locator Form (dPLF) was developed to facilitate the use of PLFs during cross-border health threats. This digital format will allow for easier and more rapid data collection and exchange between stakeholders, making contact tracing more effective and efficient.

In the future, travelers entering a country that choose to use the European dPLF web application through air, maritime (cruise or ferry), or land (train, bus, car) transport means may be asked to complete a digital Passenger Locator Form for their travel using the European dPLF web application.
Who has to complete the digital Passenger Locator Form?

In case a family is traveling together, only one member of the family will have to complete the dPLF. The details of the rest of the family members should then be included in this dPLF. The same applies to groups traveling together. Only one person from the group should complete the dPLF and the details of the rest of the group members should then be included in this dPLF. Note that this applies only to families and groups of people that will take part in the same activities and stay at the same place during their visit to the destination country.

To Complete your European Digital Passenger Locator Form (dPLF)

Vibo Valentia | Book Capitial of Italy 2021

Vibo Valentia | Italian BOOK Capital 2021
Capitale Italiana del libro 2021

#capitaledellibro #vibovalentia bookcapitial2021

The mayor Maria Limardo cannot hold back her tears, when the minister Dario Franceschini proclaims her Vibo Valentia "Italian capital of the book 2021": "I am excited as never before - explains, live on Youtube, after the victory has just taken place - it is a ransom for our community, a city that is always last in all rankings, but which this time is proudly first. Here there are so many beautiful people, people who read. And who write. So now we are in the headlines: the beautiful one ".

But let's take a step back. To explain that this "Capital of the lbro" is a very recent initiative of the Ministry of Culture, decided at the beginning of last year to encourage Italian municipalities to undertake projects to support reading. In the 2021 edition 23 took part, and six reached the final: over Vibo, Ariano Irpino, Caltanissetta, Campobasso, Cesena and Pontremoli. Here we already see a prevalence of the South over the North, then confirmed by the final choice. In the Calabrian city, a contribution of 500 thousand euros will now arrive from the dicastery, through the Center for Book and Reading, to carry out the programs presented to participate in the competition. Last year the title went to the municipality of Chiari in the province of Brescia, one of the places most affected by the first Covid wave.

During the proclamation of this year's edition, which took place on the Ministry's YouTube channel, Franceschini congratulated all the finalists: "It's like the Oscars, it's already a title to reach the final even if you don't win". And he went on to say that "these procedures set in motion a virtuous mechanism, such as the involvement of citizens, planning and the intersection of public and private". Conviction shared with the president of the jury, Romano Montroni. Which also revealed how the final decision "was taken unanimously". And then he recalled that in a country like ours, "which has one of the lowest reading index in Europe, not wasting resources, but rather optimizing them by networking", is particularly important ": in this perspective, he concluded , the Book Capitals can play a crucial role.
