We're a living contraddiction. We're warm, easy-going, generally good looking and we like to live life but at the same time we can be real sleazy and too often we tend to choose illegal ways to obtain what we want. I'm not following any stereotypes cause i'm fully Italian, my parents are from Calabria, my grandparents were from Naples and Sicily....i've lived in Rome all my life that means it takes me 7 minutes to drive with my scooter to the Colosseum.... so i know what Italy and Italians are all about... As for real italians,
Yeswe do love eating pasta pizza and all the rest because they taste good Yes we have strong moral values in particular family ones and that is great on one side but on the other hand these are the same values on which the Mafia is based.... not all Italians belong to the Mafia, Italians in general hate the Mafia and do not act like Mafiosi to look cool or powerful.... and anyway the real Mafia has nothing to do with the common Hollywood immage of the street gangster/drug-dealer/pimp but it's actually about money-laundering, rackets and politics.
Yes unfortunately we sometimes do tend to live with our parents for too long but that's just cos our mothers cook the best food and family bonds are really tight
Yes we sometimes have some attitudes that could seem "gay" but that's only because our strong manliness allows us to be confident with our feminine side....that basically means that i kiss my male friends on the cheek but a couple of weeks ago i spent a whole night with two girls in my bed at the same time.... (not kidding)
which reminds me of the fact that Yes we are excellent lovers, both guys and girls.
And No, not all Italians use gel, spike their hair, dance like idiots, get fake tans, wax their chest and eyebrows or do whatever might be classified as "Guido" bullshit. Of course there are people that do all of the above, but in most cases they're considered quite ridiculous and even in Italy we have names to describe these idiotic people ("bori" "tamarri" "truzzi" depending on which part of Italy). As for Italian-Americans, i don't exactly know what they've evolved to be, but if it's what i'm seeing on the net when typing the word "Guido", then i'm deeply disappointed. I just wish they transmitted to the American culture only the best aspects of Italians without being influenced by the negative sides of America. Enough with the Godfather stereotype (it's still one of the best movies ever made) and to hell with all this Italia green-white-red wear! If you're Italian or of Italian origin be proud of it but don't go around acting like a fool and bragging about it...that's not what a real Italian would do. However, keep on spreading our culture and live up to the honour of being a descendant of Julius Caesar.
Italians are Italians. No way to change them.

A really smart, good-looking Mediterranean person with kick-ass food, families, and values.
There are only two kinds of people, Italians and those who wish they were.

An incredibly cultured people who work hard and are not considered white by white people and yet not considered minorities to the WASP-ass government.
Sometimes get a bad rep because of movies and shows where they are depicted as gangsters. Italian women are strong-willed, hard-working, and completey hot just like Irish and Black women. Usually have beautiful olive skin and dark hair. Italian men love their families and work hard and many are incredibly intelligent, despite what it shows in the movies. Leonardo DiVinci, an Italian man, was one of the smartest men in the world. Italians are also great artists. An Italian discovered America, an Italian named America, the Italians slave to make a better life while WASPs like Peter kick us in the face. And don't sit there rolling your eyes, whities, because I know you would support this if another minority wrote this, but simply because you think I'm Italian you blow this off. "I'll pretend to give a rats ass about what blacks and asians say because it's the cool thing to do, but I don't care about Italians." You're hypocrites. All minorities, Italians, blacks, hispanics, need to come together.
Italian power! Minorities unite!
