Capri: a vacation to the island of my soul

Italy is my favourite country (after Romania, of course). I go there at least three times a year, often to repeat destinations. It’s very easy to discover new streets with crossroads full of miniature sculptures and you wonder how it happened that you didn’t see them during your previous visit.

Business strategy in times of crisis

The economy is affected in a totally unknown way. Governments have had to face some challenges they themselves are discovering only now; they get inspiration from other countries for what to do to keep the societal balance, including the physical and mental health of the population.
