Two Pieces of Good News from Italy (Luciano Dondero, Italy, 11/21/14 2:27 am)

First of all, the Rome Orchestra controversy has been solved positively, with the reinstatement of the entire team of musicians. (http://waisworld.org/go.jsp?id=02a&objectType=post&o=88844&objectTypeId=75492&topicId=32 )

Thanks to all of you at WAIS who signed the petition.

Then, on Tuesday night there was a friendly football (soccer to Americans) match in Genoa between the Italian and the Albanian national teams.

Over 25,000 people attended, two-thirds of them Albanians who live and work in Northern Italy.

The stadium looked like it was in Tirana, red flags with the black eagle all over the place.

A nice touch: when the band played the Italian anthem, the whole stadium sang it, Italians and Albanians alike.

Given the bad news all around, occasionally good things happen!

Pax et lux.

JE comments: Great news absolutely--especially since just last month a Serbia-Albania match in Belgrade turned into a street brawl after a drone carrying the "Greater Albania" flag flew into the stadium.

I'd like to learn more about the Albanian population of Northern Italy.  I suppose they number in the tens of thousands--or more, as about 20,000 of them packed the stadium in Genoa.
