Castello della Pietra
Pietra Castle was built as an outpost for Beseno Castle, which rises above it. It owes its name to the fact that it is located on a large cliff edge, the remains of a huge landslide: the Italian word "pietra" means "stone". Built in a strategic position, it was situated at the border between the county of Tyrol and the Venetian Republic until the 16th century. This area was the scene of battles that went down in history, such as the Battle of Calliano on the 10th of August 1487 or the meeting of Austrian and French troops under Napoleon at the end of the 18th century.

Hiking through Solfatara Nature Reserve 
Lazio, Italy. The soil is quite yellow due to its sulphur content. Needless to say, the air is sulphorous as well.

Venice Italy Europe
Venice is a city in northeastern Italy and the capital of the Veneto region. It is built on a group of 118 small islands that are separated by canals and linked by over 400 bridges. The islands are in the shallow Venetian Lagoon, an enclosed bay lying between the mouths of the Po and the Piave rivers.

“We were interested to note the ‘bond of steel’ quotation used by Lindley,” wrote a Foreign Office official, Peter Joy, to a colleague in Rome. “I assume you may have had the chance to talk to Lindley before the interview?” he wrote. “If so, well done!”
Joy’s interest was not academic. He oversaw a top-secret unit of the Information Research Department (IRD), the covert cold war propaganda arm of the Foreign Office. The IRD’s Special Editorial Unit (SEU) was responsible for the department’s most sensitive operations, running propaganda missions around the world against communists and others deemed to threaten British interests. The unit worked closely with MI6.
Recent investigations by the Observer have revealed how the IRD incited mass murder in Indonesia in the 1960s and ran a secret campaign to smear Oginga Odinga, the leftwing vice-president of Kenya.
Now, newly declassified documents reveal that the IRD ran a campaign with MI6 to “undermine the credibility” of the Italian communist party and influence the 1976 election.

Giorgia Meloni: Thousands march to protect abortion rights in Italy
Protestors have marched through cities across Italy to protect access to abortion, which some fear will be under threat by the country’s new far-right government, led by Giorgia Meloni.
The nationwide protests – organised by Italian feminist movement Non Una di Meno – saw thousands of people march through the streets of Milan, Rome and other cities on Wednesday (28 September) for the continued availability of free and safe abortions.
The action coincided with International Safe Abortion Day, an annual day to support the right to safe abortion.
