While still doing a little dillying and a touch of dallying, we take a moment to look at the recent Women’s Fifa soccer world cup and relive some soccer memories from the great state of Virginia.
On the “giornata del ricordo”, a commemoration to remember the victims of the Massacre of the Foibe in Istria and Venezia Giulia in 1943 and 1945, we talk to Roberta Alessandra Belulovich, an Istria Italian about her family history and the Istrian question.
To celebrate the birthday of “A History of Italy” we are releasing a free versions of NewsCappuccino in which we talk about national stereotypes.
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.

Between the 29th September and 5th October 1944, the Nazi occupiers of Italy, along with their Fascist allies, rounded up and killed almost 800 civilians, mostly elderly, women and children in the worst single episode of violence against the civilian population in Western Europe. The massacre occurred on the slopes of Monte Sole, south of Bologna.
