HMA Christopher Prentice CMG – Doing time in Italy

HMA Christopher Prentice CMG – Doing time in Italy

What can I say about my time here in Italy? It has been a privilege to be in Rome at a time of immense change, both in Italy and back in the UK. The UK underwent something of an ‘Italian’ experience, with a coalition government – a novelty for us Brits –, before reverting, in the last election, to the more traditional single party government. Here in Italy, there have been four governm... »

Happy Australia Day

Happy Australia Day

After arriving in Milan a month ago, I have found it to be an elegant, vibrant city. I can only imagine the very different experience my ancestors faced when they arrived in Australia in the 1790s. Australia’s first European settlers landed on the 26th January 1788 – now Australia Day – and were faced with a hot climate filled with strange flora and fauna and a country already inhabited by diverse... »
