Dec 14, 2016 – It’s day two of the 12 Days of Dig, and we are digging Italy. From books to Ferrari’s, we bring you another day of stuff we dig…Italian style.
CLAUDIO RANIERI. The journeyman coach just managed the Leicester City Foxes to their first championship in the history of the club (they finished second in 1928-29). Born in Rome in 1951, Ranieri began his playing career for Roma in 1973 and ended it at Palermo in 1986. The Guardian frames it best: “Leicester City. Not Chelsea, or Arsenal, or Manchester United, teams burnished with petro-dollars and star talent and years of accumulated knowhow; little Leicester, from the English provinces, with their genial old Italian coach Claudio Ranieri, and their motley crew of rejects, unknowns and never-weres. Twelve months ago they were certainties for relegation; now they’re seven points clear with three games to go.”

VIRGIL’S AENEID. Move this up on your list of summer reading choices. It’s filled with romance, drama, history and almost 10,000 lines of dactylic hexameter! This epic poem written between 29 and 19 BC tells the story of Aeneas who fled the Trojan War and burning Troy and travelled to Italy and became the mythological first ancestor of Rome. It artfully ties the political, artistic and military history of Greece to the founding of Rome. So good. “Arma virumque cano…”
2011 FERRARI CALIFORNIA T. Armed with a 552-horsepower, 3.9-liter, twin-turbo V8, the Ferrari California T has a top speed of 196 mph and gets from 0-60 in 3.3 seconds. But, it’s the styling and the iconic Ferrari engineering (and, of course, the “harmonic frequencies” of the engine roaring) that represent Italy with pride.
