    He is totally incorrigible. (Luiz, not Placidone).

    Also if Placidone is so sick, what is he doing having ice water chucked all over him?

    Or maybe that bathing suit she wore when she posed on her snow-covered balcony in Manhattan back in January.

    Almaviva has forgotten this picture?

    I thought he would not have only book marked it but had T shirts and coffee cups printed and kept it as a screensaver!

    Only Russians are so inured to cold weather (or so crazy) that they are prone to hanging out on their balconies in their bathing suits in the dead of winter.

    I was looking up information on Busseto and on the Wiki page, Luca Pisaroni is quoted and the source of the quote is no other than Luiz Gazzola.

    There's actually a much more revealing picture of her out there on the Internet - when she suffered, erm, a wardrobe malfunction. It is NSFW and I wouldn't reproduce it here, just out of respect for Anna.

    No baritones have made it through to the Operalia final. Interesting ...
