Today it’s my curiosities’ day. So I share here some interesting facts about Italy. You have already been to my country, but maybe you don’t know them. Or you never had the chance to see the beautiful Italian boot and its islands so these facts will help you to plan your trip consciously… Hey, I am joking. I just want to share some facts not much known by the people…also by some Italians…

If you never been to the country of fashion and pasta, after reading this post you will have an irrepressible desire to leave. Ok, maybe I am exaggerating a bit. But I am sure that you will satisfy all your curiosities about Italy and you will see the Italian cities from a different perspective.
I like a lot to go deep in the country culture when I travel the world. It’s the way to know better a place and to understand how is life there. That is the reason why I think to share some facts with you. Maybe you already heard some of them and for others is a discover. This is a brief guide that can introduce you to Italy. Especially these facts will be useful also to start to get in touch with Italians.
Let me suggest a book about my country and especially about Italians. It is a short one that you easily can read to explore culture and habits, also in a funny way. It is called They Really Say, Mamma Mia! – Discovering Italian Family Roots. There are emotions and curious episodes. You can read more in my review. It’s easy to find information about Coliseum, I guess you want to know something more to plan your tour.
Are you expecting a long list of facts? Do you think to see a lot of lines full of boring information about Italy? No, I prepared a short video with some of my pictures taken during my trips around my country. Each image will have a few words written about a factor of curiosity. Easier to read them and to learn them. I can query you in next days. So if you want a good grade, you have to pay attention to. Just kidding you.
I will let you see my short video and I hope you enjoy these facts. When I have some work meetings abroad and people ask me something about Italy, I always tell some curiosities. This catches their attention more than the well-known adjectives used to describe the famous monuments. Now I want to do the same with you. You know, we like a lot to smile, so it is quite common to joke about our habits. But be careful, we tell jokes and the truth is in the middle. Don’t miss it.
