the original Latinos, face up to it my Mexican brothers, our flag is about the same, as is the food, passion and I'd rather be mistaken for a Mexican any day than a WASP.

have a family ethic, besides the work ethos

IF the Roman Empire was in Iraq these days, gasoline would cost 25 cents a gallon

Black folks get Italian names by MARRIAGE, not slavery.

anyone with Italian blood is usually a little bit happier, content, hedonistic

from Sicilia to Roma to Valdaosta, from NYC to Toronto to small towns in Minnesota or Montana- it's all good

I read the joke of an idiot below..that was something like"italian guys(talking about football):We are the best!
Other guy(talking about Culture,engineering,tennis,basketball etc):are you sure?

Oh really you want talk about culture?Where are you from guy?If you are from Greece or Egypt we can talk about culture,if you are from somewhere else part of the world,you better stick to think you are better than italians in tennis....
Anyone can dare to say he has a better culture than Italy being not ashamed of himself maybe an idiot who has never opened an history book....
have you ever heard of Machiavelli?Da Vinci?Michelangel?Galilei?Dante?Marcus Aurelius?Virgil?Cato?Umberto Eco?
Maybe the only one who can't talk about cultures is you here,cause you shown us you have none.
Let's go again....Engineer?What kind of engineer?
If Eu didn't block us we were to build the Messina's bridge,and you can be sure that despite many countries who ask for italian engineers we would have built it by ourselves..Want to talk about Ferrari engineers?
Aviation?what the fuck have to do with a society?LOL Switzerland has barely an army...and italian aviation is good anyway.

Military?Well not a great performance in WWII,but we fought for 3 years against the whole world while France gave up after 3 weeks and english had american big brother by their side.
Moreover today Usa and England bitches for our soldiers in every place they go..weird isn't it?
Technology?Uhmm our spatial agency is one of the best in Europe together with France,and the last flight of Shuttle had a sofisticated italian module over there....
italian scientists are the most appreciated at Cern when it come to recreate the earth's big bang.
Olympics?LOL
We have a lot of medals,comparing numbers of people with medal we overclass Usa too...
lol
Italy is ranked 3 in the world for number of gold medals....
Germany 4th,England 5th and France 6th..lol
Motor Bikes?want to talk about that or Valentino Rossi maybe?

Volleyball?

Anyway italians are great we only have to fight on a daily basis with idiots with no culture and brain who have never opened an history book or a newspaper.....that's all...

A foreigner guy(talking to an italian):Look,i have never read a book but i'm sure Italy has no culture nor anything...
An italian guy(repling him):That's funny i read lot of books and i can state the same about your country.

Italians are hard working people who are loyal, and very family oriented. The best people ever! Italians arent consdered white. They wear the best suits and make the best clothes! They also wear a lot of hip-Hop clothes and because of that they are called "wiggers" and "wegros", but becuase Italians arent considered white, those terms dont apply to them and are nonexistent. Their culture is used by a lot of the Hip-Hop culture as they call themselves "Capone" "Gotti", Three 6 Mafia", wear sweats, call themselves "Gangstas" and love the Mob themed life and so on and so on.

Italian culture has been a part of Hip-Hop for mutiple decades now just like latinos have been a part of it since the 80's. So to the older generation of Italians saying the newest generation are a disgrace becuase of what they wear and etc, they just dont get that Italians who dress and act a certain way is just the Americanization of all cultures meshing together. The Italian culture hasent died or will it ever, it's alive and well, it's just evolved and added on due to living n America the country that we discovered, and since Italians discovered this country we have every right to call the shots as what to wear or how to act,if you dont like it move! So next time you see an Italian wearing FUBU and Kangol, dont say were ripping off anothers culture, other cultures rip us off all the time,so we will wear whatever we like, and if we dont mind rappers putting Italian culture in their rhymes then I doubt they care what we wear. Now thats the reality check. Paisans rule!
Who is this guy so cool James? Why you ask? Because he's Italian! Damn right.

Originating from Italy. A genuine Italian is not the same as an Italian-American, the latter of which is a product of a bastardisation and incredibly innacurate representation of Italian culture. Although whether straight Italian or Italian-American, most of them gesticulate with their hands a lot, even when on the phone. This might also be a false stereotype, though

Italians means two things.North Italians and South Italians.
Once a lot of southern italians went to Usa.Since some southern italians have olive skin,the angloes thought that all italians should have olive skin,dark eyes and dark hair.While north italians have lot of central european r1b haplogroup blood and can't be distingushed by central europeans,south italians with many exceptions fit the classic mediterranean type that doesn't mean they are black,but that they have a lot of greek blood from back in the past.
Unfortunately these southern italians(mostly american\italians)have been brainwashed that their features are due to africans,then some of them happily say that it is the truth and take down the whole Italy in their assumption making never a distinction between them and north italians.

South Italians also brought mafia to Usa,but that doesn't mean that all italians and specifically north italians are in mafia.
North Italians created renaissance,Da Vinci,Machiavelli,Florence,Venice,Pisa,Michelangel the first university in Europe and so on and most of them are blonde blue eyed.
Venice,Pisa,Genoa and Florence fought all the middle age against arabs.Central north italians have not olive skins,and our regions are the richest in Europe,with a pil that overclass England and Germany too.
North italians have not any subsaharan blood,despite american angloes who have been targeted as the most mixed in the world.
