Today I won't write about a city or a place I like or I don't. I want to warn people who are planning to visit Italy, a very touristic country in the summer, about how Italians are!
First of all, Italians are, above all, a bit snooty, they all are very worried about their physical appearance, so they usually go to the gym. I have never met an Italian who didn't go to the gym, although to be honest, I've never been to Italy, and I just met two Italians in a disco once... and a girl in London from Naples, we used to go to Primark together every afternoon after English classes, she wanted to buy clothes, and I didn't want to go home early in order not to have to see my host-family...
Italians are so worried about their appearance, that they spend a lot of money on clothes and on their cars, maybe they don't spend a lot on other things, which I consider more important (I am quite strange) like food, or the house. That is a very positive point, because everybody I talk with who visited Italy has said to me that they are so so handsome and so so good looking, men and women, both, because they always wear high heels, and very fashionable clothes. Everybody is pretty there.
Italian men know how to get round women: they have such a nice smile, and their accent is so hot. They are men who have plenty of women around. And they are proud of it.
Furthermore, it is said that they are quite male chauvinist, about this point, I really have no idea, but it is said by many people, so I trust it. But they are very polite and know how to treat a woman. That was said to me...
Italians never arrive on time, you will always have to wait for them. So, I recommend you to eat an Italian ice-cream, maybe the best ice-creams of the world?
However, there are big differences between people from the south, who are more talkative and sociable, and the north, who are... I don't know, maybe more influenced by Germany and Switzerland, serious countries, unlike the PIGS (Portugal, Italy, Greece, Spain).
If somebody disagrees with my opinion, you only have to see the ex prime-minister, Berlusconi, who achieved many beautiful and young women, not for his money or for his power....but also for his Italian personality and his friendliness. He might be the prototype of the Italian man.
In short, I have never been to Italy, it seems like a country with many cities to visit. But as in my city, there are plenty of Italians with the University program "Erasmus", I just wanted to talk about them a bit, and wish my friends from class, who will go with this program to Milan next course, to study hard, I mean, to live la dolce vita, that they meet many Italians, and I can have a more serious opinion about them...
But what I can't avoid thinking is.... how can Italians have so beautiful surnames? They usually end in -i and they are so nice... maybe this is the secret why they are so lucky with girls....women are just looking for a nice surname for their babies... It is a reasonable possibility.
Do you advise me to visit this country? What part of Italy? Have you ever met an Italian person privately? Which are your favourite italian ice-creams?
