1:The most beautiful country of the world. The only nation that can claim something in any field:
a:Military- Roman Troops conquered the greatest empire of this planet. And don't tell me they weren't Italian cos from lombardia to calabria had all roman citizenship. And also don't tell me about the embarassing things of modern italy, cos:
-France did the same in both World Wars, sending millions to slaughter in the first and surrending after a few months in the second.
-Britain also suffered great losses when fighting natives with spears in sudan. it conquered its empire with guns against spears. When came the moment to fight against europeans, like in the Boer War, the the british general was killed by a 12 year old boy with a gun. Also, Boudicca had 100.000 against 10.000 and still did lose!
-Germany lost both wars even if in the second controlled half of the world
-USA never fought against proper enemies, they always came late and couldn't even win against Vietnamites.
b:Music-Classical music owes 90% to italy.
c:History-Italy has always been an important nation and the great powers were always ready to spend millions of soldiers to conquer it. Also it was italian renassiance that brought europe out of the Dark Ages
d:Geography-The following nations owe their name to Italy:
e:Science-Da Vinci, Galilei, Dulbecco, Fermi, Hack were or are all italian.
f:Literature-Italian literature is one of the most important. We have poets and writers from any age, thing that any other nation cannot claim.
g:Culture-We have the best food(and pasta was NOT invented by chinese, only spaghetti, and anyway ours are better), cars, fashion and actors. And among the best american actors and directors, there are many with italian origins.
h:People-Italians are friendly, happy, proud, inventive and passionate. But many are also crooks, bastards, cheaters, crazy or all these things put together. Italy is wonderful place but some people do not deserve to be called italians.
This is why i came with a second, much shorter definiton:
2: A heaven inahbited by demons.
When bad people die, they go to hell.
The good ones go to Italy.
A beautiful country with beautiful people and a beutiful culture. Hey Mccoy, if Italy had stayed with the Axis, you would be critizing them for being Nazis. Instead they overthrew Mussolini, and you criticize Italians as being "cowards" who didn't want to face the Allies. There's just no winning, is there? I saw Mccoy's comments on Ireland and America. First of all, I gotta say I love Ireland. But come on! Ireland's major role in WWII was getting bitch-slapped by the British because the people of Ireland were supporting the Axis. (Ireland basically figured that anyone who was against their oppressors, the British, was their friend. Of course, Ireland didn't know about the holocaust and all that at the time, but still.)So don't go talkin about Italy's history in WWII if you're not goin to comment on Ireland's. I love the Irish, but I just trying to point out that every people and every culture has something it's ashamed of, so it's plain dick to go around thinkin you're fucking perfect.
McCoy, in your comment about America you sounded like a stuck-up piece of Eurotrash who thinks he's better than "dirty Americans." In your comment about Italy, you just sound like an asshole, man.
Nation in Southern Europe consisting of 60,000,000 people. The Italians are some of the most beautiful/handsome people in the world. They love to live la dolce vita, eat good food, and take pride in their architectual treasures. Despite having the shittiest TV and the only G9 nation with an unstable government, Italy is great
la dolce vita en Italia!
The home of some of the best food, cars, fashion, and shotguns in the world.
The Benelli M4 shotgun kicks ass.
A sun-kissed peninsula in southern Europe. The center of european civilization for millenia. Home of the finest art, cusine, fashion, and automobiles on earth. Most italians seem to really enjoy life, despite the fact that hardly any italian toilets work. Even the turds don't want to leave!
If I could pick one nation in the world to survive a nuclear apocalypse, it would be Italy.
2006 World Cup Champions!!!
Italy also won in '82, '38, and '34.
The greatest country in the world. Amazing architecture, nice people, great soccer games (called football over there), wonderful food ( Olive garden is not REAL Italian food) , drinking age is 16, and great weather. Ive looked at the other definitions of this country and the only two knocks on it are that its tv sucks and the toilets dont work. First off, the toilets work, that is not true. Second it is true that the tv is not great, but this is probably the reason italians have a wonderful, healthy lifestyle and Americans are fat and ugly. Plus with all the fun stuff to do there who needs tv. I am Italian and take great pride in saying that my family comes from this country. If you ever have a chance to go, DO IT!
Dumb person: I cant wait to go to olive garden tonight and get some real italian food!
Me: You dumbass! Thats not italian food! That is Americanized Italian food.
The boot shaped country!
Dude, you know your country is shaped like a book?
