If Romance countries never knew that their language was originally Latin

This Easter break has unsurprisingly caused my concept of time to run away, definitely need to start work earlier in the day! Tonight was looking over history notes and summarising key areas. I adore the history course I chose. First year looked at Luther, Henry VIII and witchcraft, while A2 year is on the Italian Renaissance and revolution, Republic and restoration in England. Our history department offers twentieth century and Empire and freedom as well, so being able to chose a specific area was so gooooood. Anyways, hope you’re all having a good day and continue to make it good. Eat your greens kids xoxox

A youth-led rebellion is spreading across southern Europe brought into focus by a new generation of protesters taking possession of squares and parks in cities around Spain, united by a rejection of mainstream politicians and fury over spending cuts.

Protests are also planned in Italy, where the tag #italianrevolution is a trend on Twitter. Plans have been announced for a Tahrir Square-style piazza occupation in Florence on Thursday night, and for further protests in Italian cities, including Rome and Milan, on Friday.

Italian Revolution ('cause enough is enough!)

Too early to judge if that’s real change or hype… But it’s refreshing, though!  :-)

In Rome - at 8 pm tonight in piazza di Spagna - (as well as in many other Italian towns) twitter and FB call for a meeting leading to change, against crisis, desperation, and privileges. It’s not just a thing for young people (though they are most affected, possibly) - merely stating “it’s gone too far” is no longer enough, now!
