I'm trying to find a link that was on the blue -- I'm pretty sure it wasn't in an actual post, but in a complimentary comment someone left -- about a particular church in Italy that has a ridiculous number of layers of archeological detail. [more inside]
A nice Italian Weblog Directory if you feel like traveling. How much longer before it all becomes truly global?
Via evhead comes Verbamanent, which appears to be an Italian MetaFilter. Of course, I can't read Italian so I can't say for sure, but it definitely has the look (if not the #006699).
