sbagli" ("All my mistakes") and "Discolabirinto" ("Disco Labyrinth") were hits. The '''Biennio Rosso''' (English: "Two Red Years") was a two year period, between 1919 and 1920, of intense social conflict in Italy. The Biennio Rosso was followed by the extremely violent reaction of the Fascist blackshirts militia and eventually by the March on Rome of Benito Mussolini in 1922. The Biennio Rosso took place in the two years following the first world war (World War I) in a context of economic crisis, high unemployment and political instability. It was characterized by mass strikes, worker manifestations as well as self-management experiments through land and factories occupations. In Turin and Milan, workers councils were formed and many factory occupations took place under the leadership of anarcho-syndicalists. The agitations also extended to the agricultural areas of the Padan plain and were accompanied by peasant strikes, rural unrests and guerilla conflicts between left-wing and right-wing militias.

Roberto Franzosi, Beverly Hills, CA: Sage, 2010. Mario was born in Cagliari, Sardinia. His real name was '''Sir Giovanni Matteo De Candia''', and his heraldic titles were "Cavaliere" (Knight), "Don" (Sir), "Principe" (Prince), and "Marchese" (Marquis) in the Kingdom of Sardinia and the Kingdoms of Italy. Sir Giovanni Matteo De Candia was born in Cagliari on October 17, 1810. He came from an aristocratic family that belonged to the Savoyard-Sardinian (Sardinian people) social elite, part of the Kingdom of Savoy-Sardinia. In the baptismal register of Mario in Cagliari cathedral, Mario's father is called only "cavaliere", not a marquis or a count. On the origin and title of his family see also Francesco Floris and Antonio Serra, "Storia della Nobiltà in Sardegna" (della Torre, Cagliari 1986). His relatives were members of the Royal Court of Turin, while his father held the rank of general and was aide-de-camp to King Charles Felix of Sardinia Savoy.

In the ensuing battle Constantine extended the frontage of his battle line, allowing Maxentius' cavalry to ride into the middle of his array. As his army outflanked that of the enemy, Constantine's more lightly armoured and mobile cavalry were able to charge in on the exposed flanks of the Maxentian cataphracts. Constantine's cavalry were equipped with iron-tipped clubs, ideal weapons for dealing with heavily armoured foes. Less than half a century earlier the emperor Aurelian had successfully dealt with Palmyrene (Palmyrene Empire) cataphracts using club-armed infantry in his war against Zenobia (Battle of Emesa). Some Maxentian cavalrymen were unhorsed, while many others were variously incapacitated by the blows of clubs. Constantine then commanded his foot soldiers to advance against the surviving Maxentian infantry, cutting them down as they fled. ''Panegyrici Latini'' 12(9).5–6; 4(10).21–24; Odahl, 102, 317–18. Victory, the panegyrist who speaks of the events declares, came easily. ''Panegyrici Latini'' 12(9).8.1; 4(10).25.1; Barnes, ''Constantine and Eusebius'', 41, 305. The people of Turin refused to give refuge to the retreating forces of Maxentius, and closed the city gates against them. The citizens reportedly cheered Constantine's troops as they slaughtered those of Maxentius' soldiers trapped against the city walls. Odahl, p. 102 Following the battle Constantine entered the city to the acclamations of its populace. Other cities of the north Italian plain, recognising Constantine's military genius and his favourable treatment of the civil population, sent him embassies of congratulation for his victory. King of the blondes As the major Camorra cigarette smuggler of the 1970s and 1980s, Michele Zaza once said: ''“At least 700,000 people live off contraband, which is for Naples what Fiat is to Turin. They have called me the Agnelli of Naples… Yes – it could all be eliminated in thirty minutes. And then those who work would be finished. They’d all become thieves, robbers, muggers. Naples would become the worst city in the world. Instead, this city should thank the twenty, thirty men who arrange for ships laden with cigarettes to be discharged and thus stop crime!”'' (The Agnelli referred to is Gianni Agnelli, president of Fiat, the Turin-based car multinational) Haycraft, ''The Italian Labyrinth'', pp. 199-200 In 1854, through Cavour (Count Camillo Benso di Cavour)'s influence, he was elected a deputy to the Italian parliament. He retained his seat until 1864, passing the summer in England and fulfilling his parliamentary duties at Turin in the winter. On the outbreak of the Austro-Sardinian War of 1859, he proceeded to Lombardy as war correspondent of ''The Times''. The campaign was so brief that the fighting was over before he arrived, but his connection with ''The Times'' endured for twenty years. He was a forcible and picaresque writer, with a remarkable command of the English language. He materially helped to establish that friendly feeling towards Italy which became traditional in England. In 2005, Macdonald signed a deal with Comedy Central to create a new sketch comedy pilot called ''Back to Norm'', which debuted that May. The pilot was never turned into a series. Its infamous cold opening parodied the suicide of Budd Dwyer, a Pennsylvania politician who, facing decades of incarceration, committed suicide on live television in 1987. Rob Schneider appeared in the pilot. Also in 2005, Macdonald performed as a voice actor, portraying a genie named Norm (Norm the Genie), on two episodes of the cartoon series ''The Fairly Odd Parents''. But he could not return for the third episode, "Fairy Idol", due to a scheduling conflict. In 2006, Macdonald again performed as a voice actor, this time in a series of commercials for Canadian cellphone services provider Bell Mobility, as the voice of "Frank the Beaver". The campaign had a commercial tie-in with the 2006 Winter Olympics in Turin and with the 2006 Stanley Cup Playoffs. The ads ran heavily on CBC (Canadian Broadcasting Corporation) during the Olympics and throughout the National Hockey League's postseason. Due to its success, the campaign was extended throughout 2006, 2007 and into 2008 to promote offerings from other Bell Canada divisions such as Bell Sympatico Internet provider and Bell TV satellite service.

Turin

'''Turin''' (

The city has a rich culture and history, and is known for its numerous art galleries (art museum), restaurants, churches (church (building)), palaces, opera houses, piazzas, parks, gardens, theatres, libraries, museums and other venues. Turin is well known for its renaissance (Renaissance architecture), baroque, rococo, neo-classical (Neoclassicism), and art nouveau (Art Nouveau) architecture.

Much of the city's public square (Town square)s, castles, gardens and elegant ''palazzi (palazzo)'' such as Palazzo Madama (Palazzo Madama, Turin), were built in the 16th and 18th century, after the capital of the Duchy of Savoy (later Kingdom of Sardinia) was moved to Turin from Chambery (nowadays France) as part of the urban expansion.

Turin is sometimes called ''the cradle of Italian liberty'', for having been the birthplace and home of notable politicians and people who contributed to the ''Risorgimento (Italian unification)'', such as Cavour (Camillo Benso, conte di Cavour).

The city used to be a major European political centre, being Italy's first capital city in 1861 and being home to the House of Savoy, Italy's royal family.

Turin is well known as the home of the Shroud of Turin, the football teams Juventus F.C. and Torino F.C., the headquarters of automobile manufacturers FIAT, Lancia and Alfa Romeo, Iveco and as host of the 2006 Winter Olympics and, in the same year, the 37th Chess Olympiad. Several International Space Station modules, such as Harmony (Harmony (ISS module)) and Columbus (Columbus (ISS module)), were also manufactured in Turin. It was the capital of the Duchy of Savoy from 1563, then of the Kingdom of Sardinia ruled by the Royal House of Savoy and finally the first capital of the unified Italy (Italian unification).

It is often referred to as ''the Capital of the Alps''. Other popular epithets are ''the Automobile Capital of Italy'' and the ''Detroit (Detroit, Michigan) of Italy'', as it is home of FIAT; in Italy it is also dubbed ''la capitale Sabauda'' ( the Savoyard (Savoyard (grape)) capital).
