Lots of 'eye-tie' action of late but

 

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marina_Ripa_Di_Meana

 

caught my eye, so to speak.

 

 

It was her death, considered the assisted suicide Swiss route but chose, and was very public on it, palliative sedation.

 

To me that's one and the same, so just interested....is the latter legal in Italy and assumably the former isn't?

Interesting in that I just presumed you were part of the UK contingent, had no idea you were Italiano.  Cool!
It was an eyebrow raiser that you had created this thread but of course it makes sense now.

There's a massive Italian population in the UK. Did you think the UK's love of pasta dishes, pizza, ice cream and garlic breads came from British entrepreneurial spirit?

 

Though if Spade had seen the utterly rank carbonara I tried to cook the other night, I'd be starting the DDP on minus 30. :lol:

Death, 'Italian style' really should be having a famous Italian crashing their Fiat into a Lorry loaded with Spaghetti.

Wadda the chances of that, huh?

I don't think that Gianni Morandi has anything to fear. Just last year at a mere 72 years of age he collaborated with rapper Fabio Rovazzi (23) on the summer dance hit 'Volare', doing plenty of running, driving and being suspended by cables in the video:

Checking notes, leaves Elder Roma Wilson as the only notable (spurious use of notable) person living born in 1910? Unless anyone's got another hitherto unknown to me (which is always possible, hence the asking)?

Somehow I had him as being born in 1910 but it seems that 1912 is correct.  Thanks, I like accurate information.

Tompson is the oldest person (not counting those famous solely for age or having a noteworthy relative) I think has at least a 60% shot at a QO. Frankland being the oldest 100%er.

IMO the highlight of Gillo Dorfles was his face being in a perpetual state of looking like it was about to melt off.

 

Wait.... I think @Death Impends made that joke about Rockefeller last year

Anyways, here's a picture of the most attractive man in the world.
