Google translator got this wrong: it should be 'in Lucca'
(a very nice town in Toscana).
But my 'trademark' has nothing at all to do with saints, 'zita'
means the greek letter 'zeta' which in greek is called 'zita',
and 'kokkini' means 'red'. This was inspired by the name of
the small seaside town 'Kokkini Chani' on Crete - I liked the
sound of it.
There is some wordplay involved as well: in a popular Flemish
comic strip there is a character called 'Rooie Zita' which means
'red-haired Zita'. She's the girlfriend of the hero and doesn't
look like a saint at all (google for 'Rooie Zita').
A world of exhaustive, reliable metadata would be an utopia.
It's also a pipe-dream, founded on self-delusion, nerd hubris
and hysterically inflated market opportunities. (Cory Doctorow)
