Memorial Day 2010

Next Monday (May 31) United States will celebrate the Memorial Day. Memorial Day it is the day that America chose to honour and celebrate the sacrifice of those American soldiers deads fighting in any war. Yes, "any war" include who died fighting hijackers or, lately, in Iraq... Someone could think that this doesn't match too much with this photo blog, Torino or Italian culture and traditions. It isn't rue. Americans soldiers died in Italy during World War II for our freedom and we should remember them. So, like every year I do, this is my personal tribute. [I took this photo last January in Miami]

Il prossimo 31 Maggio si celebra il Memorial Day. Il Memorial Day è il giorno in cui l'America scelse di onorare e celebrare il sacrificio dei suoi militari morti combattendo in guerra. In ogni guerra e "ogni guerra" comprende essere caduti combattendo i terroristi o, in ultimo, in Iraq... Qualcuno potrebbe pensare che ciò poco ha a che vedere con questo blog, Torino o le abitudini, la cultura e le tradizioni di questo Paese. Non è così. Soldati Americani caddero in Italia durante la Seconda Guerra Mondiale in nome della nostra libertà e noi dovremmo ricordarli. Questo è pertanto il mio personale tributo verso di loro.
