Here are some of our commies along the Riviera! :D


A fine commie...


A "rich" commie....


Commie with funicular!


The best one, and the most famous: the "Biscione" :D

There is also an entire "commie" district Called "Begato" but it's too dangerous to get there with a camera! Here is the only pic I found on the net:



And there is also another wonderful example (the pics are not mine this time), not a real "commie", but worth the view: the "Lavatrici" (washing machines) of Pra-Palmaro! :D

Vorrei chiedere una cosa... Non so esattamente come si dice in italiano, puo essere "le case abusive", lo so in inglese si dice "squatter housing". Questi esistono in Italia? Studiando la legge, diritto urbanistico, ho visto che ci sono tante norme sul questo argomento e leggi italiani sono veramente stretti.

In questo foto, davanti al palazzo c'e una zona delle case abusive o qualcosa altro? E un'altra cosa... Perche stanno distruendo una bella citta come Genova con questo tipi di merda?
Grazie mille.

Offtopic: Not offended, just lazy I guess... :doh:

% speaking English as foreign language in Europe



* Generally, English is the first foreign language in education in all EU Member States (except anglophone ones), and French is almost always the second.

* English is learned by 26% of non-anglophone primary pupils; French by 4% of non-francophones

* As far as secondary education is concerned, the language most taught as a foreign language is English.

* Overall, 89% of pupils learn English.

* In Denmark, Germany, Spain, France, Austria, Finland, Sweden and the Netherlands over 90% of all secondary pupils learn English.

* 32% of pupils learn French, 18% German and 8% Spanish.

This probably explains our reluctancy to speak English...

...and this:

* The teaching of languages in primary education is becoming more and more widespread in 1991/92 only four countries (Denmark, the Netherlands, Portugal, Belgium-Flanders) had more than 20% of primary pupils learning a foreign language .

* Latest figures indicate that the teaching of languages in primary school is growing in Europe: in Denmark, the Netherlands, Belgium-Flanders, Greece, Spain, Austria, Finland and Sweden, more than 33% of primary pupils are learning a foreign language.

* The teaching of languages in compulsory education in more widespread than before: In Denmark, Greece, Spain, Italy, the Netherlands, Portugal, and the United Kingdom, teaching of a foreign language is obligatory for a longer period than it was ten years ago.

* In Ireland, Italy and Greece, only one foreign language is generally taught; elsewhere, two or three languages are studied, or can be studied.

* Between the ages 12 and 18, the total number of hours devoted to language learning varies from 6 hours per week in Portugal to 1 - 3 hours per week in Belgium (Wallonia), in Greece, in Ireland and in Italy.

Well, Genoa urban area isn't wide. We are between sea and mountain just few kms behind. So I think it's a good choice to build up commieblocks like those in these pics. The most of Genoa's commies are built in the 60s, so they're not very tall (8-9 floors), but they're everywhere and now there's no more areas for cars and motos. This produces big car jams all over the city, both in the centre and in the suburbs. I think it could be a good choice to destroy some commies to build up taller commies in order to find places for cars and for parks all around the commies.
Another problem are illegal constructions, such those in the photo, but they aren't usually occupied by anyone. They're used as shelters for agriculture.

The biscione is very interesting. I guess it shows some respect for the natural environment by following the curves of the hill.
Yes, you're right!!! But there's a huge problem: maintenance!!! It's very hard to keep that long building and surrounding areas at good level.
