22 July sees the theatre release of War Games: At the end of the Day, the thriller directed by Cosimo Alemà in which seven friends are involved in a game of airsoft, simulating guerrilla warfare and military tactics. However, what was meant to be a day of fun in the great outdoors soon turns into a terrible nightmare, when the seven find themselves being hunted down by some mysterious assailants, armed to the teeth and intent on killing all of them one by one. Their only hope of survival is to transform simulated warfare into a genuine battle.

19.06.2011 At the Miss Italy heats, the runner-up plays airsoft. Curves, elegance, tantalising eyes: last night in Mantua, the Provincial Heats of the National Miss Italy Contest 2011 brought feminine beauty to the catwalk. Voting by secret ballot, the members of the jury assigned the first prize sash to Jessica Casanova (wearing number 1), from Travagliato (BRESCIA), aged 19, with a high school diploma in surveying and employed at a studio. Second place was given to Elys Ravanini (wearing number 12), soon to be 18, a student from Castelbelforte, studying foreign languages and clerical administration. She said she spends a lot of time studying, teaching skating in her free time and playing airsoft.
