An Italian Property Update

I made a fleeting reference to the Italian property company, Gabetti in early March. Today, I received a notecard containing some interesting updates. If I read the following correctly, they seem to be suggesting that the current Beta phase of their engagement in Second Life is due to last 5 months, with completion still some 6 to 7 weeks away. They set themselves a modest, not unrealistic earnings target for this phase, and seem to have exceed that not once, or twice, but eightfold! My hearty congratulations!

Project start date: March 8, 2007
Project end date (beta phase): July 31, 2007
Project business objective: 250.000 L$
Actual business level: +2Mo L$
Actual properties: +200K sqm

The card also contained information on upcoming seminars and conferences. It will be interesting to hear the outcome of these:
