Read in April, 2012

Lots of observations on Italy by an Italian. Plenty of playful tongue and cheek, some of which is awkward in translation. Sweeping generalizations that are not as satisfying as Nick Park's specific observations and stories. Nonetheless, some good content and hints at what my cousin who lives in Brazil and whose daughter married an Italian refers to as the "woes of Italy."
