Actually the Farnese Vini's rumor sounds bit strange as Scinto some weeks ago said he doesn't want Di Luca in his team; but perhaps the euros shown by Acqua&Sapone might have helped to change idea.
Di Luca at Farnese Vini would make it a strong team. Would anybody else from Acqua&Sapone be joining?

I mean Bonnen could easily do the job for Cav at the Tour nd as he shown he can still sprint quite well ( beat Greipel few times this year etc. )

In other races, Fenn / Trentin should prove more than enough to be his lead - out imo.

I guess they need classy punchy rider / climber than a lead-out to make their roster more all-round.
boonen won't be in his train in any race I assume.

Bongiornos best U23 years (=2010 and 2012) however were with Futura (2010) and Hopplà (2012), not Zalf. He rode with them only in 2011 and had a pretty modest year there (overshadowed by Battaglin and Agostini).

Zalf lost it's dominant position in the Italian amateur scene already back in 2010. They are cleaner nowadays (or other teams closed the gap...) and a more sprinter-oriented team.

I agree that italian amateur cycling in general has cleaned up, but I'm always wary before they turn pro, guys like nibali and moser started with very clean teams in italy

What team is Michael Valgren going to, or is he staying at GLU?

Louletano-Dunas Douradas (new portuguese continental Team) signs Sérgio Ribeiro, one of the most convented riders in Portugal.

Louletano is a sports club, they have a amateur cycling team last two years and their main team is the soccer team (third level of the Portuguese football). I have friends playing soccer and I hear they are not good payer, so I'm suprised they signs Sérgio Ribeiro.
