Southern European country. Was the center of the ancient world, mainly for its location in the middle of the mediterranea sea. Today is a poor country with some heritage of its gloriuos past. Years of corrupted and money driven governments have resulted in a populations of self centered individuals, with no sense of unity whatsoever. The typical Italian man , born in Italy not the USA, is concerned only in his well being and personal development and if that means fucking everybody else around him, all the better. The culture of "privilegi" is rampant, so everybody tries to elbow the next guy in the mouth only to get a free seat at the cinema, a better looking car, a smarter looking suit. Everyting revolves around looks. That's why Italy has teh best clothes in the world, 'cos everybody there is nuts about looks. Italy is in reality a veru poor country bordering the third world level. Nevermind the image that clever sales rep for the tourist board try to create for the Americans, Italy is about poverty, poor culture, poor values, terrible governements ad lots and lots of foreign organized crime. Even Mafia is being run by Albanins and Rumanians these days, so Italy can't even claim that anymore. Italy does make some good things, some are the best in the world and are:Guns - Beretta, Benelli, Franchi.
Landmines - many factories are in Brescia. Italy is the largest maker and seller of these things in the world.
Pasta - Garofalo, look for it at Central Market.
Cars - Ferrari, Lamborghini, Maserati.Cloths and shoes - Forget the Armani and Gucci shit, Italy has the best craftsmem who make the best tailor made suits in the world, not to mention shoes, ties, shirts. If is elegant, well made and durable, was made in Italy. Nothing to do with heritage and shit, its just a matter of demand. Italians with money are the most demanding and bollocks busting customers in the world, so the craft has to be top notch or the shops closes down.Coffee - Fuck Starbucks, Italians with no money (99.9% of the populations) are maniacs about coffee, since they can get nothing else really. So the various bars compete for the business and the result is the best coffee in the world by a country mile. Forget the espresso one gets in the USA, the real thing is complitely different. So much so that many Americans find the local coffee way too potent when they try it in Italy.Jewellery - Little known fact, all the best jewellery makers are Italians. Many of the european Kings had their bling shit made in Italy, over the centuries. Bulgari, Buccellati, Grisogono, to name but a few. The best jeweller of all time was Italian, Benedetto Cellini.
Classic Music and its players - Vivaldi, Verdi, Rossini. The best players: Arturo Benedetti Michelangeli is regared as the best piano player of all times. Uto Ughi the best violin player and so on.Opera - if you like that kind of shit, Italy is the country to thank for it.Italy is the birth place of many things and these things are generally best made over there.Pizza, Ice Cream (Romans used to mix wine and snow, so take no shit ice cream was born in Italy), Pasta (yeah Marco Polo discovered the noodles in China and introduced them to Italy, but the pasta as it is enjoyed today was first made in Italy), Espresso Coffee (the Turks had the idea but Italians invented the machines that make an espresso a lovely thing free of the dust you find in Turkish coffee), all that lovely italian food made of almost nothing but tastes soooo good.(mainly because Italy has always been a poor country and its people had to resort to ingenuity in order to make good food virtually from nothing).
Italy has some amazing History, but today is a poor country plagued by crime, corruption and drugs. They do make some good stuff over there when they really want to.

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!

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.

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.
