I've been looking at pictures by the Italian artist Felice Casorati (1883-1963) and gathering my thoughts about him - and also woolgathering, a task made necessary by an injury to my right leg this winter. As I work on both projects, (article and leg), you may like to read an early post here about Daphne Maugham Casorati, an English-born painter who married Felice Casorati.
RAI is the Italian National Public Broadcasting Company. Like the BBC and about half the radio/television networks in Europe, RAI is partially funded by broadcast receiving license fees. It has often been argued against as a funding for use in the United States on the ground that people here expect television to be "free." These people conveniently disregard cable television fees.
