Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
How long has it been melo?

Probably sometimes Italian architecture needs to be protected esthetically but I just can't wait to see concrete monstrosities or cheap corrugate farm sheds to be paneled shut...

the permits have only been applied for quite recently, what was really time consuming was to get correct, unbiased information, or sometimes, any information at all.

most things kinda run like this, so i'm not so surprised.

what's needed is a consumer agency studying the field and providing a database of the different panels, their longevity, yield, price etc.

it can take weeks for an engineer to come over and give you diametrically opposite advice to that of the engineer here a few weeks earlier.

ENEL advertises that they are proactive, but don't return my calls.

we are in a time-eddy of corruption here....italian telecom takes care of its french clients better than its italian ones.

broadband still a distant dream too...

still, when it all does come, it will be worth the wait.

i agree that the attention to stopping the kind of urban blight so evident in other parts of italy is laudable, even though they go too far the other way.
