LATINA, Italy (AP) — Change can come slowly to Italy’s centuries-old wine industry, but the coronavirus pandemic has radically altered the path from vine to table in a matter of months, beginning with the fall harvest. At the Casale Del Giglio winery in the Agro Pontino area south of Rome, a group of workers moved steadily through the vines wearing masks in a searing September heat. They dropped purple Petit Verdot grapes into black buckets and then into the back of a truck rumbling between the rows. © Provided by Associated Press A worker harvests Petit Verdot grapes in the vineyard of Casale del Giglio, in Latina, near Rome, Wednesday, Sept. 16, 2020.

Heyer: cold start for the HSV lightning transfer?
Moritz Heyer could celebrate his debut in HSV dress on Friday evening. Coach Daniel Thioune kept this option open.

Daniel Thioune avoided secrecy during the press conference on Thursday.
The daily newspaper Il Tempo specifically reports on a first meeting between Boldt and the Roma owners Dan and Ryan Friedkin. The ex-Leverkusen man is not the only candidate, Ralf Rangnick and above all Fabio Paratici, the sports director of Juventus Turin, should be on the Roman list, but Boldt is one of them.
It is understandable that he is dealing with the interest from Serie A, as of now his working paper ends in summer. However, contact with the Romans does not necessarily mean that a farewell is imminent. Since Bernd Hoffmann's departure, but especially since the personnel measures last summer, Boldt's job satisfaction on the Elbe has been extremely high. Boldt sees the HSV well positioned not only with coach Daniel Thioune, but also on the director level with Horst Hrubesch in the young talent and Michael Mutzel in the professional area. The contracts of this duo also end in the summer, he has already given both of them signals that he would like to tie them to HSV beyond 2021. But now it's all about its future. This has to be clarified by the supervisory board and a prominent competitor.
