Recap 05 – From episode 077 to 100

We go back over around 50 years from the death of Holy Roman Emperor Frederick II to beyond 1300 to retrace the steps of the kingdom of Sicily, the war of the Sicilian Vespers, the northern communes and maritime republics as well as looking over at Sardinia and keeping an eye as always on the papacy.

Christmas 2018 – Italian Christmas past and present and a Christmas witch

We have a look at important events in Italy on and around Christmas as well as explore the traditions, including that of the Christmas witch.

If you would like to donate to charity as a Christmas present, we suggest “Indomiti” a group of young people who have found their voice and place in society thanks to Facilitated Communication.

You can support them here:
