French tourist 1: Italy isn't THAT great.

French tourist 2: But it says here that the Romans invented roads, organised armies, and modern civilization itself!

French tourist 1: They could never beat our Asterix, though!

French tourist 2: You're right, harh harh!!

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:
-Britain
-Spain
-Germany
-Belgium
-Switzerland
-Greece
-America
-Colombia
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.

Sintuated in the South of Europe, Italy is a beautiful country with a population of approx. 58,057,477 people. Now, I'm not Italian but I must say, Italy has the BEST food in the world and some of the sexiest guys (with that jet black hair and sexy brown eyes), it also has a very interesting history (with the whole Mafia thing), definately one of the best countries to visit.
Wow,check that hot Italian guy!

Peninsular in southern Europe, not really a country more a group of city states that still hate each other, but prefer football to wars now.

Without a doubt it has the world's best food. la cucina italiana cannot be criticized! There is such incredible variety in terms of what you can eat and drink. Each region, each little village has its own specialties. However, the weather is far from being sunny all over the country. In the north it is often cold, damp and overcast. The traffic is horrendous, and the major cities are very crowded and expensive. Everyone is obsessed with dressing well. Fashion is very important here. the northern Italians are very different from southern Italians. It is a country of extreme contrasts.
La cucina italiana, in Italy, è stupenda
