I looked in the SL Destination Guide today and the first place on the list was a beautiful virtual Italian village called Ciampi, so I thought I would go over and have a look around. As everyone must be aware by now there was a real life General Election in Italy last Sunday when the main political parties were beaten by the populist parties. The winners are now in the process of forming a coalition government. Good luck to our friends in Italy, you have exciting times ahead and I wish you well! Second Life's Ciampi village is a gorgeous place to visit, it's very well designed and gives that authentic rustic feel with its little cobble stoned streets and charming buildings and shops. From the centre of Ciampi I wandered down to the very stylish PortoNuovo Harbour; I could just imagine sitting there with a cup of coffee and just letting the world go by. There is a large church in the centre of Ciampi as well, which would make a romantic setting for an SL wedding. Go over and have a look at Ciampi, take a virtual picnic and a bottle of Italian wine and chill!
