QuoteOriginally posted by: DCFCNamed after an Italian god, (Nike) which beats my residence whose name was originally Bucket Hill.Nike was a goddess of victory in Greek mythology, daughter of river Styx and giant Pallas. In some of the greek art pieces Zeus and Athena are carrying images of Nike. That's just a side note, I myself kinda like this Italian gathering thing -- I am very italiano myself at heart, especially if vino and ragazze are involved. Also, I've been to Brooklyn several times, which makes me poco Italiano too.

Thank you, boys, for your appreciation.I'm very grateful to you for the encouragement, but the reality is not so good...It could be true that my english is better then csparker's italian, but in the financial world do you know anyone (trader or broker) that send his communications in italian? Trading is not the only activity where english is the standard: for example, If I'll want to write a paper, I need english in order to hope that someone can read it, and so on...I'll hope to improve my knowledge of english ASAP and I'll be very thankful to those that will correct my mistakes. If one need, I can exchange italian for english lessons....Have a nice weekend! And if the weekend could be spent walking in the beatiful "promenade", it will be certainly very Nice! endriux

Ciao endriux,io sono italiano. Vivo a Londra, pero' non lavoro + in banca. Sono qui a Londra (e Cardiff, dove ho fatto universita') ormai da parecchi anni. Pero' puo' darsi che torni in Italia (a Milano) a ottobre x un certo periodo. Originariamente sono di Milano e sono nato a Roma. Una volta ero un romanista sfegatato. (Mi ricordo quelle grandi sfide tra Juve e Roma ai tempi di Falcao, Platini, Conti, Pruzzo ecc.)Tanti saluti, Athos

Hiboumalin,If you get a chance to go to Ascoli, you should as they have a spectacular summer pageant where the whole town dresses up in mediaeval costume. My wofe went a few years ago with her Italian uncles. To my eternal regret I couldn't go as my younger daughter was ill that day. Maybe another year.

Maybe another year.Yeah I know, it's called "la Quintana", if I remember right it's the first sunday of August. This party really kicks a$$ !! They have stuntmen/knights fighting in a tournament for the colors of each neighborhood. Then at night they have a fair and wonderful fireworks...I missed those days so much (plus the food is AWESOME)Maybe we could convince Paul to organize a risk seminar over there one day ;-)Peace everybody,Hiboumalin

endriux, volevo segnalarti che gironzolo spessissimo in wilmott.com, sono italiana, leggo studio e penso tutto il giorno in inglese, ma quando parlo non c'è niente da fare, mi sento sempre fuori luogo, penso sempre che tutti dicano "ihhhh, guarda questa come si esprime"... ; per questo in wilmott leggo (o tento di leggere) molto, ma scrivo praticamente nulla...sono di roma, insegno economia mercati finanziari in università, a proposito dell'inglese sto iniziando a fare ricerca in inglese, ma ogni volta è un parto.... sono straappassionata del mio lavoro... non sono della Juve... (oggi è a +8...)tu che fai? la finanza è il tuo lavoro o la tua passione? (o ambedue?) CIAO, annamaria
