Don't know, but maybe someone is interested in what's written on the newspaper "La Sicilia" about the visit made by Bono last weekend in the small country of Ortigia, Siracusa-Sicily. So I'm trying to translate it:
BONO VOX THROUGH THE NARROW STREETS OF ORTIGIA.
Going for a walk with friends through Ortigia. Walking through narrow alleys and small baroque squares, stopping for admiring the cathedral square, then going for dinner in a restaurant in the historical centre of the town. (...) The star who last saturday evening was enjoying indisturbed the magic atmosphere of Ortigia was the rock singer par excellence Bono Vox, the scratching voice of U2. The singer berthed at the historical centre by sea, being on board of a three storey white-blue yacht, which didn't already go unobserved. (...) Probably the rockstar is going on a Mediterranean cruise and chose to make a stope right at the beauty Sicilian city. Half-disguised by a green cap dropped on his forehead, shaved hair, barely roundish face, jeans and t-shirt, he walked peacefully through Ortigia's alleys with his wife and a group of 5-6 friends, all of english toungue. Nobody recognised him in the small group, none was expecting him to be there. And so the leader of U2 acted as a normal tourist: the walk, a typical dinner and went back to the yacht straight with the shuttle bus.

ok, this is the first part of the article. I've got to put my little son to bed and will go on with the translation in a while..

Hi, onekea, thank you so much for the link and the translation of the article! So Bono is in Italy, I am sure he is enjoying his trip with his friends, especially since it's his wedding day with Ali, what a beautiful place to be!

Your welcome Unfortunately I never been there, I'm from northern Italy, very near Austria in fact, so very far from where he is/was but I know that those places are beautiful.

Hoping my son is already asleep, here the second part of the article 'cause we girls are nosing to know everything about our special man, don't we? So, enjoy:
(...)"Likeable, well-disposed, a very affable person" said the owner of the restaurant, "but I was struck by his simplicity. Everybody in the room recognised him, but no one wanted to bother him and he liked it. He asked for a salad as hors-d'oeuvre, then ate pasta with ragout and finished by tasting some typical Sicilan desserts. Only at the end of the dinner, which wasn't based on fish (he doesn't like it), a client wanted to pay him homage by offering him an important bottle of fine reserved local wine and a painting by a local painter." Bono, told the chef, said he appreciated the loving and tactfully welcome given him by the people, feeling a bit as home. So did his wife Alison. (...)

So, that's all. I hope the translation was clear, I did my best.

The only one I found is the black and white pix on the newspaper you see in the link, not of very good quality in fact...but he looks good and hot as ever, isn't he?
Why isn't he coming to my city to visit Oetzi, the famous mummy of Similaun?!! Well..who can blame him? I also would prefer sea instead of a mummy!!!
