What does it mean ''to be Italian''? to me, it means a life full of joy. Italians have style, they are friendly, warm and open. They live for the moment.
When I was 9 years old my parents took me to Italy for the first time. I found a style of life there, I have never seen before. They were so fashionable. There I realized, that I'll do everything to live life like this.
Since that time many years have gone by, and Italy is even closer to my heart. Every year I visited different part of Italy. I saw many beautiful and different traditions, I saw breathtaking monuments and nature. I tasted many different dishes, and I drank lot of excellent Wine. I saw many beautiful stylish clothed women and men too.
In fashion, Italians proved to all world, that they play an important part in the world´s fashion industry. For example the revolution of Versace, classic Max Mara and Giorgio Armani. Thanks to Italians, we have Fendi - queen of furs, Guicci, Salvatore Ferragamo shoemaker for many big movie stars since 1920's, Missoni, Dolce and Gabbana, Guiseppe Zanotti - another important shoemaker, Roberto Cavalli, Moschino, Trussardi - famous for glove making and many many more. From now on, I would like to devote? (once a week) to italian fashion, history, shops in Rome, Milan and many more tips for tourists.
Be an Italian for a while :)
