You Won't Believe What Was Out My Window Today!

I do not think it is a coincidence that the president of Italy decided to visit Torino on the same day that the 2010 Girls of Lavazza Calendar was released. To explain, I looked out my window this morning to find all the roads blocked off and police everywhere. A diplomatic car drove up to the theatre where 2 men jumped out and escorted the Italian president, Giorgio Napolitano, into the theatre for a morning showing of La Traviata. My little piazza was buzzing as the president stayed all day visiting the government offices and police headquarters (also in my piazza).

For reference here is a picture of the president:

AND Here is the closest I got to taking a picture of the president (Hint: He's the bald one) On the other side of the square the Lavazza coffee company was having a PR and paparazzi party to celebrate the release of the 2010 Lavazza Calendar. Coffee is sexy you know. This time I was able to get closer to the excitement.
Here are the models of the 2010 Lavazza Calendar. The guy in the middle is holding the official calendar which you have to buy to see, it's not even on the Internet...yet. (Also I heard one of the models speaking and she was American!). I never get tired of what is happening just outside my window. I never know what will be there tomorrow....
