Italianità

La vostra Italy non è la nostra Italia. Italy è una droga leggera, spacciata in forme prevedibili: colline al tramonto, olivi e limoni, vino bianco e ragazzi dai capelli neri. L' Italia, invece, è un labirinto. Affascinante, ma complicato.
–Beppe Severgnini

Your Italy isn't our Italia. Italy is a light drug that is pushed in predictable forms: hills at sunset, olive and lemon trees, white wine and black-haired boys. Italia instead is a labyrinth. Fascinating but complicated.

Here you may explore the inner Italy that is under the tourist's radar, little details that tell a great deal.
