    Surely it would be unusual to find someone who doesn’t feel this way? Even the criticisms in Tobias Jones’ “Dark Heart of Italy” come from someone who loves the place.

    1. Great comment, thanks so much. So reassuring to me to know that there are countless others out there who feel actual love for Italy!

    I am currently reading Luigi Barzini’s book called The Italians. It was written in the 1960s, but is still relevant. It helps to understand what makes Italians tick. I like Tim Parks, An Italian Education, Italian Neighbours and Medici Money. I think they are very entertaining.

    1. Great reads! I have read all but Medici Money and really enjoyed them. Tim Parks is always a good read and you’ve inspired me to re-visit these titles. I’ll put Medici Money on my list. Enjoy Casa Debbio!

    I love Italy, but not that awful book.

    1. I remember, Debra! 🙂 Happy to still have you here with me! What’s your top one or two picks for a “life in Italy” book? Would love to know your favorites. Cin cin!

    I admit that some things make me crazy here….but for the most part…this country DOES make me feel like this! 🙂

    1. Always two sides to every coin, right? I know life in Italy isn’t all prosecco and sunshine but, especially from afar, I feel very in love with Italy. Soak up the good for me! Un abbraccio!

  6. There is something magical about Italy!

    Very well said. I even re-experienced the feeling reading this. So cool!

    1. I have re-read the “Eat” section in Eat Pray Love countless times. Elizabeth Gilbert perfectly describes how I feel about Italy and Italian! Glad you enjoyed this one, thanks for your kind words! Cin cin!
