Simu o no calabrisi?

I’m back!

I had to take a bit of a hiatus for my sister’s wedding but now that she is a Mrs. I can turn my focus back to my blog.  How I missed you blog!!

So, I’m a bit behind on this, but what kind of a blog would I be if I don’t post this tourism commercial with fellow Calabrese and one of my favourite Italian soccer players, Gennaro Gattuso.  I don’t think they could have picked a better person to show the heart and pride of the Calabrese! 🙂

It fills me with pride and gives me goosebumps every time I watch it! 🙂

    What a great commercial for Calabria, now I want to go. Maybe someday soon. Very nice to find your blog.

    I’m only partially biased when I say that Calabria is a beautiful place….I hope you do get a chance to discover it yourself! Thanks for checking out my blog!

    I’ve seen the ads and think they really chose the best spokesperson. I mean, who has more heart than Ringhio? And (don’t tell anyone!) I think he looks kinda hot ; )
    I wonder if he’s done the ads in English for the foreign markets.

    I agree…he was definitely a good choice! 🙂 I haven’t heard or seen any English ads…yet.

    This is so cute. Peppe sent it to me when I was in Texas but I haven’t seen it on TV yet, either. I’ve been on the lookout!

    It is such a great commerical! 🙂 It’s kind of funny that no one in Italy has catched it on TV yet…it’s has to be airing somewhere?!

    That ad is just the best. I have not seen it in Italy on tv (as I am not there) but it is beautiful!

    I love it…it gives me goosebumps every time I watch it.

    My goodness, this is so beautiful! I need to go back and really see Calabria!

    It is such a beautiful commercial. I was so lucky to have seen more of Calabria when I was there last summer thanks to my wonderful cousins! There is still so much to see…and I can’t wait to explore more of it…it really is a place full of heart! 🙂
