ALL ITALIAN NAMES END IN A VOWEL - ie. A, O, E, I,, WHICH GIVES THEM A NICE SOUND  -  IF THEY DO NOT END IN A VOWEL, THAT IS AN ANGLICIZED VERSION OF THE NAME  -  SOME EXAMPLES  ITALY - ITALIA; ROME - ROMA; NAPLES - NALOPLI; VENICE - VENEZIA.
I DO NOT KNOW WHY WE DO NOT USE THE SAME PLACE NAMES AS THE NATIVES, LIKE THE ITALIANS. SEEMS TO ME IT WOULD BE A LOT EASIER FOR US.  ie. FLORENCE IS FIRENZIA .
THE ITALIAN LANGUAGE HAS A VERY NICE SOUND, AND OF COURSE YOU HEAR ITALIAN ALL OVER ITALY.  -  NO SURPRISE THERE.

POMPEII - ROMAN CITY BURIED BY A VOLCANIC ERUPTION IN 79 A.D.
CITY'S POPULATION WAS 20,000 - 2,000 WERE BURIED IN THE CITY - THERE WERE 18,000 SURVIVORS  -  I WAS ALWAYS UNDER THE IMPRESSION THAT ALL OF THE CITY'S INHABITANTS HAD BEEN BURIED BY THE VOLCANIC ERUPTION. NOT SO  -  ONLY  THE MOST STUBBORN OR STUPID STAYED AND DIED.

THE WHOLE CITY OF 20,000 OF POMPEII HAS BEEN EVACUATED  -  WHICH GIVES YOU AN IDEA OF THE SIZE  OF THE PLACE  -  JUST LIKE THE VATICAN THERE WAS NOT NEAR ENOUGH TIME TO REALLY SEE THE PLACE.

ISLE OF CAPRI - THE ISLE OF LOVE.

THE ISLE OF CAPRI WAS THE PLAYGROUND OF THE ROMAN EMPERORS, AND IS NOW THE PLAYGROUND OF THE SUPER RICH. - A NEW YEARS
PARTY HERE COST 7,000 EUROS TO ATTEND.

IT IS TRULY A VERY BEAUTIFUL CITY AND ISLAND  -  MANY OF THE STREETS ARE TOO NARROW FOR CARS SO IT IS A PEDESTRIAN TYPE OF PLACE WHERE YOU HAVE TO WALK EVERYWHERE.

NAPLES - NAPOLI;  THE CITY OF ROMANCE AND LOVE

NAPLOLI IS THE NORTHERN BORDER OF MAFIA COUNTRY.
HAVEN'T SEEN ANY MAFIA YET. WANT TO TAKE SOME PICTURES OF THE MAFIA TO SHOW PEOPLE THAT  THEY ACTUALLY EXIST. A PICTURE OF A MAFIA DON WOULD BE GOOD.

THAT IS ALL FOR NOW
ITALIAN DAVE
VIVA LA ITALY

AND REMEMBER TO BE GOOD TO YOURSELVES
