La Dolce Vita

I have to mention the nice plug Ionarts received on an Italian blog, La vita istruzioni per l'uso. These words accompanied a link to my post on the Paris Poppea:

Bella recensione di una messinscena a quanto pare splendida dell'opera di Monteverdi. Trovata su un blog che rappresenta l'ideale a cui il mio dovrebbe ispirarsi, invece di raccogliere questa montagna di fuffa.
That Ionarts should be described as "a blog that represents the ideal to which mine should aspire" is humbling. Grazie mille!

UPDATE:
A lot of you are coming from Spanish-language Elastico.net, where Antonio Córdoba was convinced by the same Poppea post to give Monteverdi another try. Muchas gracias!

Ionarts also received what is, I think, our first Internet award, a DUESENhome Blogger-Award 2004 (by my reckoning, no. 51 out of 100), in a group of blogs with specialized themes. Well, it may not be the Bloggies, but we appreciate it anyway! Vielen Dank, Roland!
