The secret meeting
ALT! Polizia!
Hi everyone :)
Today a new draw of "Agent Firefly" for
TheViktor
TheViktor


Emily comes from London, aboard a Douglas DC-9 of the Italian company, at Turin airport to begin her Italian adventure.
She was forced to flee after the betrayal by a member of her agency (which, however, has laid the blame to her) and decides to seek help from a friend who works at the Italian secret services...and after meet her partner in Rome.

This is probably one of the most difficult drawings I've ever done, especially for the amount of detail and present objects (for example the parking's cars); other drawings arrive in the coming days ;)

A collection of the best songs of the '60s in Italy, that cheer Emily, while listening one of the local radio stations :)

Thank you ^^
I was inspired by an old image of the real Turin airport, in the '60s

Here you can see some old Fiat cars (600, 500, 850, 125, 128, ecc) an old mini cooper, an old Alfa Romeo "Alfasud" a Lancia Flavia and an old citroën DS "shark" ;)

Ironically...this morning I went to pick up my brother at the Turin Airport (also called "Sandro Pertini", in memory of an old President of the Republic).
It was the first time in several years (I was a child when I saw it for the first time), and it has undergone a radical change in looks and size (especially after the restoration for "Torino 2006 Olympic Wintergames"

Here an aerial view of the actual terminal

I had problems in Rome crossing streets ,esp. after a week in Venice where * there are NO cars.

* Except in the Lido area where my father went to get train tickets to Vienna. We left a day early because there was the threat of a plane strike, and as time drew near, there was no move towards a settlement.

Look, I'm sorry that these problems have ruined your stay in Italy. Rome is a very busy town (and its roads don't help much). I can however assure you that not all drivers here are idiots.
Venice, for its part, is also a city very crowded and chaotic ... especially the Grand Canal, with its traffic of ferries, boats and gondolas.
Also the city where I live, Turin, has always been one of the most chaotic cities in Italy...but if you get used to living there at the end and you can get away with driving without major problems even in narrow streets and congested traffic ;)

Airline strikes (or public transport), they are not very frequent...but each time causing many hardships ._.

I still hope that next time you come to Italy you will find yourself better. as a cities to visit absolutely you should: Milan, Bologna (and maybe a trip to Modena and the Ferrari museum), Florence, Pisa, Verona...and obviously, Turin and its surroundings ;)
PS: I strongly recommend you to come in the summer time.  

Here's just a small taste: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_2T0OyJLqiU

My stay was not really ruined, just fell short of expectations, thanks to these problems. Venice was a delight both times, due to absense of cars -save in Lido.

I also have problems with excessive car traffic in NYC and NJ, and a few times I swear a driver purposedly swerved to hit me. We can do with delayed green to facilitate left turns here. I have evolved techniques to avoid left turns where unwanted traffic interferes, and no delayed signal exists.

I did visit Florence and Pisa. The Tower is unfixable actually: part of it leans more than the other part because tilting progressed during a hiatus in construction.

I understand, however the problem of traffic common to all big cities. Italian ones, in particular, may have more problems related to their topography and, except for the wider main roads, they have very narrow side streets.

The tower of Pisa is famous because of its slope problem (error in setting up the foundations) and is kept under control for safety, although to now there have never been problems ;)

My folks and I visited it before the extended period it was closed for further repairs and upgrades. I walked the staircase to the top floor -empty but used to view the city from its windows. I don't think the tower is used save as a tourist viewpoint.

The airport piece -which inspired all this commentary- is an excellent work. Very well done. Very.
