        Peru: the Potato Nation
        Not everyone knows that Lima, the capital of Peru, is also the world capital of the papa
        (as the potato is locally called), and that every year on the 30th May “Papa Day” is a major
        celebration. Lima is the site of the World Potato Bank, or CIP (Centro international de la papa),
        where over 4,000 different varieties are preserved, including the “Puma’s Claw”, “Midnight
        Passion” and “Happy Heart”: Tubers with names as colourful as the potatoes themselves,
        whose tones range from yellow to red to purple. This bank is a kind of giant fridge, with
        constant temperature and humidity levels, protected behind security doors with secret codes:
        a restricted access area that houses the planet’s memory of a foodstuff that is crucial to the
        future of mankind.

           • ALFA ROMEO •

          The compact that
          looks more than ever
          like a sports car
          The new Alfa Romeo has been launched and it’s been christened MiTo. Its name is a meeting of
          two great cities: Milan and Turin and is a title that evokes great excitement. Milan is where the
          car’s brand was created, Turin is where it is produced. Amongst its features is the Alfa Romeo
          DNA system. The DNA stands for Dynamic, Normal and All Weather. This is an innovative
          mechanism that affects all the main driving parameters (engine response, control of stability
          and power steering). Until now, only racing cars and supercars had this system. It gives the
          car three quite different personalities: a super sports car mode (dynamic), an urban mode
          (normal) and a mode for maximum safety, even on slippery roads (all weather). Another key
          feature of the MiTo is the interior design. The overall look is definitely aggressive, with the same
          upholstered dashboard as the high range vehicles. The dials are easy to read, with modern,
          extremely effective graphics. The suspension ensures maximum safety and pure enjoyment:
          Sports car performance combined with unrivalled traction. The engine has up to 155HP to
          accelerate from zero to 100 Km/h in eight seconds.MiTo also has the latest sound technology.
          It is equipped with a radio, CD player and Mp3, with the latest generation hi-fi Bose® Sound
          System. Blue&Me™, the multimedia communications heart of MiTo can be installed on board to
          provide a hands free service via Bluetooth®, a USB port and Mp3/wma media player.
