Toto Schillaci becomes a mafia boss

Posted by - September 29, 2010 - Italy, Oddballs

Don’t worry, kids: it’s just acting

Former Italy World Cup star Toto Schillachi is adding to his CV with a role as a mafia boss on Italian TV. The former Messina, Juventus and Inter Milan player is to appear as a killer in the Squadra Antimafia series.

He said: “It’s a world that fascinates me, that of television and film: the role does not matter. Otherwise I do not know what you would think of De Niro.”

Schillachi is due to appear in two scenes, although he is expected to be playing dead for one of them.

The World Cup hero did show some mafioso tendencies on the field. In 1990, he received a one-match ban for threatening to shoot Bologna’s Fabio Poli.

    great footballing legend but not sure on mafioso. Even though he did used to look like a hothead and play like one in his prime!

    The wig he’s wearing should get a show of its own… he didn’t have that much hair during Italia 90!

    The rise of what is now called the blogosphere in the past five years has caused major upheavals in world of journalism. But if you were to look at the listings of blogs from around the world you will find that most blogs are dedicated to a very specific target audience.

    One of the most intriguing audiences is luxury watch enthusiasts. Fans of Raymond Weil Watches, Longines and Philip Stein are coming together on different blogs to compare stories, show off collections and simply be a part of something that can be labeled an online community.

    The process of buying a watch has changed dramatically in the past decade. With physical stores giving in to rising online demand for retail products, the fans of specific luxury brands now have access to online luxury watch stores from around the world with a click of a mouse. However there is criticism of these online bloggers from some key players in the watch industry. Many of the writers are fans of the brand and are not professional writers. Yet the readers tend to assume that whatever is written must be true and customers tend to trust blogs due to their objective appearance. This causes misinformation to float around at times.

    However, the benefits of information about the brands being accessible online seem to outweigh the detriments. Ariel Adams writes for one of the more influential blogs called Watch Review Blog. In an interview for the Financial Times he admits that “there are occasions when it is a matter of quantity over quality and I have received various complaints about typographical and grammatical errors, but, generally, the comments are positive.”

    These sites allow viewers to post comments and add their experiences for all to see. Something that would have been unheard of just a decade ago. Consumers looking to buy new Longines watches or trying to find a good deal on some Gucci watches don’t need to walk around searching for a store that will carry their luxury watch. All they need is to go to the website that has the best deal and find their brand.

    Despite becoming more influential in the industry, blogs are still coping with the lack of professional writers in the field. Some of that stems from the lack of funding. This means that they cannot afford professional writers. But as the industry adapts we may see sponsorships of blogs by companies that have an interest in promoting luxury watches as a leading retail industry market. Gucci 2011 New
