Casa Galeazzo

For many years Vivi and I have been searching for a home in Italy. Our search has come to an end. In Piemonte, close to Aqui Terme, we have just bought this beautiful house. It has a fabulous history going back long before WW2. But it received its name from Gian Galeazzo Ciano, Count of Cortellazzo and Buccari (March 18, 1903 – January 11, 1944), Italian Minister of Foreign Affairs and Benito Mussolini's son-in-law, who used the house in certain periods during WW2. There is a rumor that the house also served as a regional HQ for the Italian resistance.
You can read more about Count Galeazzo here.
I have enclosed two pictures showing the ruins of the original house and how it looks today.

I'll try to dig more into the past history of this house, but I have to learn to speak Italian first :-)

I've just ordered a new book from Amazon. The name "x-teams" immediately caught my eye as I read about it in the Danish business newspaper - Børsen. The reviewer assigned 5 marks out of six, so expectations are high.
X-Teams written by Deborah Ancona and Henrik Bresman raises an interesting question already on the front cover.
"Why do teams fail?"
The topic of the book is how to build teams that lead, innovate, and succeed. I'll write a short review as soon as I've read it.

Mia Blichfeldt

Sometimes you get lucky. I shot this natural portrait of Mia Blichfeldt - a very gifted and up-coming badminton player at a private party - just a month before she became the youngest Danish Champion in Badminton in the senior league - and she is only 16!

Of course you can find many photos of Mia "in action", but only very few where she is being just herself - outside the badminton arena.
