Dieci giorni, trenta luoghi.

I found many of the ideas not mentioned here to be either grossly-self delusional or typically glazed over, but that there was enough honesty and insight to more than counterbalance that, as in that this has become the most interesting cultural examination of Italy that I have yet come across. A lot of things seemed pretty general and not backed up by enough statistics or even always real antidotes. itliani

Neither very enlightening nor very funny, this book does NOT do what it says on the tin. Italy is a soft drug peddled in predictable packages, such as hills in the sunset, olive groves, lemon trees, white wine, and raven-haired girls. Still, it was thrilling, as an American living in Italy, to see an Italian tdsta write “Italians prefer good looks to good answers,” “we like nice gestures so much we prefer them to good behavior” and “In Italy rules are not obeyed as elsewhere”!

Quotes from La testa degli it This book is not yet featured on Listopia. Sort of interesting, but written with the trying-to-be-vague-but-actually-very-obvious message that “Italians are better than everyone else in the world, ever.

But the book is a fun read and mostly interesting, despite the sometimes cocky attitude that comes off the writing style. I appreciated the Italian perspective, but the English was a little strangely worded needed more editing and the book can be summarized by the epilogue.

Italy is the only workshop in the world that can turn out both Botticellis and Berlusconis. I would have been better off making a photocopy of those pages to take to Italy and not wasting two weeks that could have been spent reading travel books hint, hint, an Italian wouldn’t mind breaking copyright for that purpose.

As evidenced by the book’s popularity in Italy, I think Beppe Severgnini is great at telling a story to the people who already know it, but lacks in the ability to properly include those of us he is trying to educate.

See my review on my blog here: It can be rated as a book belonging to the Berlusconi era, which is likely to be remembered as a period of disaster for Italian culture in the future. Giuseppe “Beppe” Severgnini born December 26, is an Italian journalist, writer and columnist.


Read after you’ve been there a while or after you’ve left so you can laugh a bit. Un viaggio lungo 10 giorni che appassiona e fa riflettere. This was also the first book that I couldn’t or didn’t want to finish because it was just so Italia, on deglu other hand, is a maze.

Must-to-read for everyone who is planning to travel around Italy or to live in the country. Open Preview See a Problem?

Oh, beautiful and soothing it is to see that it’s not just me sensing these realities!!! Through a combination of strange prose and incomprehensible tangents, Beppe gets me more lost about his vision of Italy than a twisty Roman street. Deswegen leider nur zwei Sterne. I think there were way too many generalizations that could have been stated about other Europeans, too.
