On Rai5 ‘Room with a view’ – On Rai Storia ‘aCdC’ with ‘The great journey of the Vikings’
The route of the Circumvesuviana: followed by “Fuori Binario”, broadcast tomorrow at 20.20 on Rai 5. The people who live on the slopes of Vesuvius have a nature in constant ferment. To grasp it, you have to cross their territory in Circumvesuviana, to stop in those villages suspended between the volcano and the sea. By closely observing rowers who departed from Castellammare and “arrived” in Korea, with oars, letting themselves be enchanted by papier-mâché demiurges, seducers in singlets and Hollywood ceremonies. All clinging to the territory like the irreducible brooms sung by Leopardi in his living room in Campania.
The Vikings spend ever longer periods in the raiding areas and the Carolingian rulers are repeatedly forced to pay ransoms to avoid looting. And they gradually integrate into Carolingian society by adopting local customs. A story at the center of “The great journey of the Vikings”, broadcast tomorrow at 21.10 on Rai Storia for “aCdC”, with an introduction by Professor Alessandro Barbero. By converting to Christianity the Viking elites have the opportunity to improve trade and diplomatic relations with both the Carolingians and the Anglo-Saxon kings in England. In 911 the charismatic Viking leader Rollo assumes the title of Duke of Normandy. An epic season finale will follow at 10.10 pm: after the death of King Edward the Confessor in 1066, the struggle for the succession opens in England. The Duke of Normandy, William, a descendant of Rollo, has rights to the throne. The Bayeux tapestry is an extraordinary testimony to the military operations – the preparation, the journey, the battle – through which William’s Normans defeated Harold’s Saxons at Hastings and assumed control over England.
France prepares for the day of strikes and demonstrations against the pension reform scheduled for tomorrow Interior Minister Gérald Darmanin announced the mobilization of ten thousand policemen and gendarmes for what, according to what the unions say, could be the before a series of protests. French information services predict 750,000 people in the square. Thursday 19 January at 11 on “Radio3 Mondo” Anna Maria Giordano addresses, with Irene Fodaro, a freelance journalist connected from Paris, the pension reform on which the credibility of President Emmanuel Macron’s second term is at stake. The retirement age would go from 62 to 64, with a law which, according to the text published today by the French newspaper Libération, would consist of only ten articles, divided into two parts and condensed, for the time being, into 57 pages. Examined by the State Council since January 10, this “preliminary draft law on the amending financing of social security for 2023” contains all the elements presented by the Prime Minister a week ago. The only difference is that while the text speaks of a minimum pension of 85% of the minimum wage for future retirees, it does not mention the fate of current retirees, to whom the government has promised “upgrades”. The executive would have sent a letter of modification to the Council of State to integrate this measure announced by Elisabetta Borne last week.
