Italian police were gobsmacked on Thursday morning when they stopped an 80-year-old man riding a scooter, only to discover he had been driving without a licence for the last 45 years.
The 80-year-old man from Quiliano, near Savona in the coastal province of Luguria, was stopped in the saddle of his 50cc scooter while riding along the road to the nearby town of Vallegia, Il Secolo XIX reported.
At the age of twenty-six Matthew Fort first visited the Italian island of Sicily. He and his brother arrived in 1973 expecting sun, sea and good food, but they were totally unprepared for the lifelong effect of this most extraordinary of Mediterranean islands.
Thirty years later, older and a bit wiser - but no less greedy - Matthew finally returns. Travelling around the island on his scooter, Monica, he samples almond ice cream on the spectacular coast and intoxicating mouthfuls of sausage stew in olive groves, and goes fishing for anchovies beneath a star-scattered sky.
Matthew is drawn once again to the intensity of life in Sicily, its dramatic landscape and traditions, and discovers how the island's vibrant food culture is intertwined with its often turbulent past.
There are numerous occasions when words are not needed in order to communicate and express great things. Watching a video of how a vintage Vespa scooter made it from the bin back to the street has, indeed, something almost magic to it.
We stumbled upon this Facebook video by mistake, and hit play just to verify whether there was something worth watching there. Since we discovered it, we played it three times already and shared it with buddies who are way more into restoration and vintage machines than we are.
Mark parked his Vespa beside three others outside Yasmin’s school, in Manchester, where it would be safe. Yasmin never bothered going to school on Fridays, so they had to meet elsewhere. The day was dull and drizzly, and Mark had got damp riding into town. He felt a little uncomfortable. His jeans were spotted with mud, but his fingers were warm in nice new gloves. He loved his Vespa. He locked his helmet under the seat and, led by a series of text messages, took the bus three stops to Elmsley Street, where Yasmin said they could make love in an empty house; there was a way in through the garden, she said. She had been there before.
An Italian-inspired blue Vespa that carries an espresso machine around Findlay Market is finding a permanent brick-and-mortar home in Cincinnati's Pendleton neighborhood.
