They should have stuck with Sardinia

L'Aquila. Pronounced lakwila or lakeela? BBC televison seems to favour the former, while BBC Radio just seems confused. I think I would go for lakeela.

But I'm so pedantic that I get upset by people (especially football commentators) pronouncing the first i in Giovanni (instead of noting that it is merely a marker to indicate that the preceding g is soft).

But hey, worse things happen at sea - or so I am told.
