The hair trend in Italy in the late ‘60s was the pixie cut. I also sported this look, at the tender age of five. America had Twiggy and Italy had Rita Pavone, an actress and singer who at 17 performed a clever song called "La Pappa col Pomodoro," about tomato soup. It was a northern recipe from Siena, a poor dish of the peasants. The lyrics spoke about rebellion and bringing food to the masses. Today, my three-year-old daughter still sings it and knows it word for word. In Italy, both of my parents were artists in their own right. My mom was a fashionista of her time — a well-known seamstress in her town, Reggio Calabria. My father was a self-proclaimed artist/engineer. he never made it past the third grade, but he was a genius when it came to modern design. Every time I am back in Italy, walking in my Mom’s home town, someone opens a door and insists I come in to see her wedding album, which shows the amazing dresses my mom made for her and her bridal party. Even in my father’s home town, which is much larger, there always is someone who wants to show me a sculpture Dad made of their dog or the beautiful outdoor wall of glass mosaics he created for their beach house. I am so fortunate to have such creative genes. In the ‘60s, Italy was dominated by the young and the modern. Colors were bright reds, yellows and greens. Large floral patterns could be found in our drapes and in mom’s fabrics as she put together dress patterns. Our furniture resembled the styles of Gio Ponti and Paolo Buffa. Coffee tables were simple and covered in tile mosaic patterns. Our basement was covered in small penny-round tiles, even the support columns. Today we call this style "Mid-Century Modern. " In the 1950’s and 60’s, there was a lot happening and many changes taking place in the world. There was over- consumption everywhere, and on TV advertising slogans became very colorful, bringing Pop Art to the media, like the Campbell’s Soup cans painted by Andy Warhol. Comic strips were all the rage and fashion was bold and new. This style was not for the wealthy, it was for the population — which is where POP came from. There is so much of this look that has influenced our lives today. In the late 60’s, the famous Italian architects Gio Ponti (called the Father of Modern Italian Design) and Alberto Rosselli designed a Moorish-shaped modern tile in ceramic for a Modena-based tile manufacturer. It was to be made in many bright colors, but because. Source: www.northjersey.com
The following incidents and arrests are some but not all, of the reports filed with Sandy Springs police from July 11-31. The following information was provided by Capt.

Robbery 8200 block of Roswell Road—On July 19, police were called to meet a man who said he was robbed around 2:40 a. m. A man and woman told officers they left Waffle House on Northridge , walking to Windridge Apartments, and were cutting through... Two young men originally approached them near the Waffle House, asking for a cigarette. They had none and the two quickly left. Unknown to the victims, the two circled around to behind the Dunkin’ Donuts, and to the woods behind them where they set up an ambush. The pair, walking through the woods, were accosted by the two men, who pulled a gun and took two phones, a small amount of cash and some personal things. One of the young men was described as a 16- or 17-year-old with dreadlocks, wearing a black shirt. The second man was not described. Don’t make it easy. Walking through the woods that late.

Long story short, he told her to go to an ATM and get money. She called her brother who spoke to the suspect and arranged to bring money. He was told to meet them at the parking lot of Whole Foods. About 45 to 50 minutes later (yep, no 911 call) he arrived and threw $500 into the back seat of the car. The woman got out. The suspect had the keys but dropped them and then fled on foot.
