“Madonna mia, so stupido! I say bid, bid and some Yank take our land on internetto, what is this?”, said a gesturing, visibly upset Mario Sporino – a native of Stromboli.

“I say my friend we put some euro from fish sale and buy Stromboli dotta com eh, and they look at me and shake head!”, he added, gesturing still.

    Barefoot – too funny 😀 I think was also for sale at DomainFest but didn’t sell.
