A NICE CHIANTI? NOW THERE IS AN APP FOR THAT

The Consorzio Chianti Classico, the organisation that counts over 600 Chianti wine producers among its members, has recently launched an app aimed at all wine enthusiasts. The app is called Chianti Classico, is totally free and works well with Windows Phone, iOS and Android systems. Significantly, the app is designed to be a tool for those actually visiting the Chianti region in Tuscany, acting as a “personal assistant” and providing information not only on the producers and the wines, but also on places of interest and events taking place throughout the year.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, GIORGIO ARMANI

Today is a great day for Italian fashion, as one of its most iconic designers celebrates an important milestone. Giorgio Armani celebrates his 80th birthday and the entire fashion system pays homage to his career.

After his fashion beginnings as a window dresser at La Rinascente department store in Milan, Armani went on to found his own company in 1975 with business partner and close friend Sergio Galeotti. Today Armani SpA includes over 12 owned manufacturing facilities, 2,203 stores worldwide and a workforce of 9,500 employees, spanning from fashion, to beauty products, hotels, furniture and desserts. 

Particularly special must feel the Twitter birthday wishes paid to the designer by his global team. "From every single one of your 9,500 employees all over the world, Happy 80th Birthday to Employee Nr.001!" reads the post, along with a photo of the company badge of "King Giorgio".
