Milan the city with the best internet reputation

ROME - Today seems the day dedicated to Milan. Milano received the first prize as touristic city with the best online reputation. That must be thanks to me, years promoting Milan, so I should stop now, lol. We've reached the target.
After 1st city of fashion and 1st city of football, Milan, the city of Expo 2015, a tourist destination with the best web reputation. This was the verdict delivered by the Prime Minister's Office (Department of Development and Competitiveness of Tourism) and the Committee for Innovation of the Ministry of Tourism. Milan has won the award at the Forum PA 2011.
Through the use of software that allows you to make the semantic analysis of the content published on the web, Milan managed to improve its tourist image outside. The project has allowed to monitor the online reputation of the brand Milano and to assess the sentiment on the competitiveness of the tourist city. The analysis yielded a significant improvement of marketing campaigns undertaken by the Municipality to promote tourism and local projects. The software used by the City Council has also won the ICT prize at the last edition of SMAU. The project was also presented to "Sentiment Analysis Symposium" held in New York in April 2011, confirming the importance of the work.

Ok can I say two or three things and ruin the online reputation, lol. I was born and always lived for decades in the historic centre, so I can :). Ok now "if you gave me a fresh carnation, I would only cross its tender petals" :). Of course in the world there are much more spectacular cities, it can be New York, Barcelona, etc. what you want, I mean cities you would say "beautiful" looking at them. My favourite city is Barcelona, especially for its atmosphere. But of course every city has its own problems, it can be crime, as in those two cities, etc.
Milan can be spectacular if you're interested in arts, concerts, fashion, football, food, etc. (models love Milan)  but of course you can find people, Italians or from Milan or foreign people, who say they don't like Milan, and even hate it. It can be for the traffic, but as Noel Gallagher I almost never use a car, I'm a v.i.p. and I always want a driver :). Or they say "it's grey", but this is the typical jealous comment, because it's not true, the sun almost always shines, even during the winter. They also say it's foggy, yes, it's a very English city but not so rainy.
In big cities as Milan, life is not so easy as it seems: there is everything, but prices are high, jobs are underpaid, etc. you have to "survive". I would go away, because I stayed here too much time. If any other city needs to raise its online reputation, then get me :)
If it's for tourism, you won't have big problems in Milan. But living in a place as this, you would notice that people tend to alienate themselves. It's not like in small towns where everybody knows everybody. Of course you can see people still meeting around and all, but it's like a domino effect: you don't meet someone anymore not because you don't want, but everybody is getting always busy or the contrary, too lazy, and there are always less "social meetings". Big companies are things for schoolboys, you have to fix a date with one or few people because it's impossible for everybody to be free at the same time.
It's not a so bad thing (see, I suffer from the domino effect :) and you end up having a life that I call "vita di nicchia", niche life: I mean you end up having a "v.i.p." life. You go to that important event, you go meeting that celebrity, etc. a few important things.
Here's one from my favourite philosopher, who already said some things similar to Noel Gallagher's lyrics... Of course Noel wrote them before him, lol.

"Sociability is the act for which the men warm to each other the spirit, just as, when it's cold, you warm up each other's body hugging each other. The more spiritual heat you have, the less you need of sociability: it therefore tends to increase when the spirit is reduced."
(A. Schopenhauer)

It seems that Milan is a city full of spiritual heat... But with this I don't mean that people refuse to be kind, usually they're ready to help you.

"The more you have inside yourself, the less you need of other people. That's why superiority of spirit makes you rather unsociable. The level of sociability is in inverse proportion to the intellectual value".
