God may keep France, we will be very happy to get Italy! I'm sure, God is sad, because he has to stay in France. He his not only sad, but was bursting into tears, therefore it's raining cats and dogs in Emilia-Romagna. None of the cats, but at least one very large dog must have falling down from heaven right onto the stairs. His name is Brutus and he likes to be petted. Right now, we are very happy to spend some relaxing time at Antico Borgo di Tabiano Castello – Relais de Charme.
Right at our doorstep are Fidenza, Parma, Mantua, Modena, Piacenza, Cremona and lot of castles like Canossa. I'm glad, we don't have to crawl on our knees to Canossa to ask the Pope for forgiveness. Sometimes it's good not to be a King like King Heinrich IV.
