Donata Ghiglia takes African art inspiration to Tuscany

She is no stranger to the nostalgic refinement of legendary Italian art. Her grandfather was a renowned master in the first half of the 20th century, followed by her late uncle who was also a well-respected painter. In fact, the walls of her father’s house in Tuscany were completely covered in paintings. So Donata Ghiglia grew up breathing the scent of painting, odours of turpentine, and the oil colours mixed with the scent of Clan tobacco, that was ever present in her uncle’s pipe. Yet her pursuit of painting was more by default.

They say it can take only a moment to score a goal. But one goal can change many lives. When Didier Drogba rose to head in Chelsea’s goal two minutes from the end of the Champions League final in Munich, he put a whole lot of careers in limbo.

Spark plugsChoosing between Denso, NGK, Champion, and Bosch can be tough

Spark plugs are service parts that help to burn the air fuel mixture in spark ignition engines (petrol engines). A good spark plug should offer a good spark that would ensure complete combustion but the biggest issue and problem is the selection of the right plugs for your vehicle.

Many people often get problems with their vehicle performance and the first things they look at are the spark plugs. However, when they fit new plugs, the performance gets worse.

Now celebrating his 88th birthday and his 32nd year in power, the documentary ‘Robert Mugabe....What Happened?’ unravels this hapless story from the beginning through interviews and both professional and amateur film footage.

Mugabe came from a very poor background even by the African standards of the time. His father abandoned the family, his two elder brothers died, and he was brought up in a strict catholic environment by his mother. A loner who studied hard, he qualified as a teacher before collecting a dazzling array of degrees. He met future African nationalist leaders before working in Ghana as a teacher where he was influenced by Kwame Nkrumah, Ghana’s Prime Minister after Independence. After marrying a Ghanian he returned to Rhodesia and became active in the nationalist movement. Arrested in 1964 he spent the next 11 years in gaol. When his young son died Prime Minister Ian Smith personally refused to let him out to attend the funeral.
