Puglia, a journey among nature, culture and cuisine, in the most visited region of Italy. “Italian California” amazes for landscapes and hospitality. The magical Salento - Lecce, “the town that dwells me”- a guide to get lost (to find oneself).

“Apulia’s Athens”, “Florence of the South”, “Paradise of papier- mâché” are just some of the epithets that has over the time been able to earn Lecce, the town I live in, but mostly, the town that dwells me. The same that, since I moved in for study reasons, adopted me a little heart’s piece at time.

Miami Art Basel Events: Miami as a world cultural capital. Showcasing over 250 galleries from 31 countries inside the Miami Beach Convention Center

MIAMI (Usa) - North America’s foremost international modern and contemporary art fair has called Miami Beach home for more than a decade, showcasing over 250 galleries from 31 countries inside the Miami Beach Convention Center.
Through the years, Miami’s own local galleries have made their way into the venerated exhibition space, including Fredric Snitzer Gallery and Spinello Projects, further cementing Miami as a world cultural capital. Widely considered the most important and exciting time of year in Miami, Art Basel Miami Beach brings a certain electricity to the air in early December. The fair attracts a sophisticated international crowd of gallerists, artists, collectors, and “glitterati” to the sands of South Beach, and beyond. The fair at the convention center is undeniably the main event.


Formally the Miami Art Museum (MAM) - the new Perez Art Museum Miami (PAMM) has been under construction in Downtown, Miami and preparing for a grand opening scheduled to coincide with Art Basel Miami Beach. The new Perez Art Museum is racing to the finish with stunning views of Biscayne Bay and downtown Miami - not to mention the restaurant, bar, gift shop, hanging gardens and a unique, functional front door - the PAMM is the most anticipated addition to Miami's evolving arts and cultural habitat. After two and a half years after breaking ground, the museum is remarkably close to being finished, more than 9o percent completed and on track for a December Art Basel debut. The Perez Art Museum is a modern and contemporary art museum dedicated to the 2oth and 21st centuries, it is designed to achieve silver LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification.


Basket. Miami Heat, sometimes the story of a basketball game is what doesn't happen.

So here's what didn't happen Saturday night at Madison Square Garden, not after the first timeout and even after the second: Shane Battier didn't come out. He didn't come out until after the first quarter had been completed, and he had thoroughly flustered and somehow outscored his main mark, Carmelo Anthony, by an 11-4 count. "A lot of things I can't explain tonight," Battier said, after the Miami Heat's 106-91 victory against the New York Knicks. "A lot of things." Battier's unexpected extended early usage—part of a 30-minute night—was just one of head coach Erik Spoelstra's many surprises Saturday night, a night that, in a sense, signaled the early start of the Heat's more serious spring.

Spoelstra, who has typically used nine, 10 or even 11 players in the first half, used only eight until just 50 seconds remained in the fourth quarter. Only then did he want to get LeBron James (30 points, eight rebounds, seven assists, six steals) and Dwyane Wade (22 points, four rebounds, four assists, two steals) off the floor. The coach warned not to read too much into it, that he simply didn't want to remove Battier when the forward was going so well, and that he kept looking for places to insert Greg Oden. That all may be true, and certainly Oden should get a shot on Monday against Detroit's massive front line.
