In Milan, Italy, City townhall reserves the PAC art space to “The rise and fall of Apartheid- phography and bureacracy of everyday life”, managed by Okul Enzewor and open until september 15th.

    Waiting for the volcano cloud to exhale, italian requests for flying to SA during te World Cup are increasing. Simulating some flight combinations around the days of italian team’s exhibitions, we can already notice how some flights are near to be sold out. An italian “tifoso” who’d like to fly from Milan to Cape town on june, 12nd, just before the Italy-Paraguay match, could choose a KLM flight to get there in 15 hour, but only a few places are still free at this moment on the plane. Flying from Rome to Cape town in the same day takes 10 more hours with KLM, or 5 with Air France. Any italian passenger has to change at least one plan during the journey: there’no straight flight from Italy to Southafrica yet.
