FSC #129: November 2019: Milan, Italy


RgJqqa7h.png


Welcome to our host city of Milan! Located in Northern Italy, close to 5 million people live in the Milan Urban area, making Milan the second most populous city in Italy after Rome. Milan is the capital, economic, and cultural centre of Lombardy, one of the wealthiest regions of Italy and Europe, producing a fifth of Italy's GDP. Milan is also home to the Milan Stock exchange, the main stock exchange in Italy. It’s not all about money in Milan however, Milan also serves as a massive tourist hub. In 2018, 8.1 million tourists visited making Milan the 15th most visited city in the world.

It appears that Milan was founded in around 600BC by Celtic Insubres who inhabited the region that is today Northern Italy, before being conquered by the Romans in 222BC. Today Roman remains still stand tall throughout the city. During the middle ages, Milan was conquered by Charlemange and the Franks in 774, although Milan fought to gain independence and become an independent city state. Overtime Milan would see itself under both Spanish and Austrian rule. Following the defeat of Austria by France and the Kingdom of Sardinia in 1859, Milan joined Sardinia and eventually the Kingdom of Italy.

Milan is recognized worldwide for being one of the four “fashion capitals”, along with New York, Paris, and London. Today, Milan has become synonymous with Italian fashion and famous fashion brands like Prada, Gucci and Armani. More importantly, Milan also hosts the Milan Fashion Week twice a year, one of the premier fashion events in the world. Additionally, Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, is one of the worlds’ oldest fashion malls.

Excellent job [MENTION=15333]JChan[/MENTION] - I'd love to visit Milan someday, looks beautiful! And so excited to see that a suggestion I made to a nation has been chosen (okay, it might have already been sent anyway, but exciting nonetheless).

Also, a quick note that the UK entry for this month is actually a duet between Jack Savoretti and Mika ;)

A little late, but I wanted to thank you for another great show Jordan xbow, Portugal almost closing the showxheat

This time I send a totally different song than usual,not being my cup of tea, I started to get "addicted" to this song ... the first time I heard I didn't like it but it was growing a lot in me, in the last months, so I had to send ... Hope you like it :D

I haven't heard the songs yet, but by L.L it seems to me an interesting edition .

Re: FSC #129- November 2019: The Show! [Milan, Italy] | Voting D/L Wed 27/11 23:59 CET

- Spain, Czech Republic, Morocco, Germany, The Netherlands
- Indonesia, Latvia, Croatia, Azerbaijan, United Kingdom
- Romania, Poland, Switzerland, Ukraine, The Philippines
- Hungary, Norway, France, Israel, Russia

They consist my TOP 20. Among these songs, here are couple of informations about my top 3:

My third place is song that is pleasant suprise for me. Start was not so promising, but song really occupied my attention later and is stuck in my head now.

My second place is a song that I knew before this FSC. I gave 12 points to this song on one another FSC (another forum, I will not name it here :D). When I saw a list of participants, I was sure that I will give 12 points to this song, but...

My first place... I will talk to it after FSC. If i speak about my reaction, people could assume which song it is, and I dont want to be DSQ xD

I think winner is obvious. I guessed a winner last two times, Austria and Italy, and I will write my full prediction after deadline passes.

This is the best fsc since i have joined. There are at least 18 songs that deserves points, it was tough for me to short this list.
