By my first sea crossing by ship in August 1982 my interest on the pure sea crossing journeys born and grew up always more. But today, one by one, all the real Ocean Liners has extinguished, replaced by Casino and Luna Park with the shape of floating boxes, which have no more anything to share with the true taste of one travel across the sea. The big ex-liner "France" have become one ordinary cruise ship, renamed "Norway". At present only the Queen Elizabeth 2 still periodically perform the Atlantic route, but after the imminent entering in service of Queen Mary 2 she will pass her last years of life employed exclusively for cruises. What sadness thinking that she would be only 4 years younger than Michelangelo and Raffaello...

www.stagniweb.it : A very rich site about public transports, trains and TRAMS, the most clean and ecologic transport systems. Also in English language.
