Being here, in Italy, many times I received a question: “How do you see US Italians?”, and I was lost in conjecture. It was only 10 days of my journey, but I already think that it would be more difficult to understand their mentality and culture.
The first words I associate with Italian people are: expressiveness with kindness, generosity, naivety, measured pace and national pride! And also what scares me , while I still learn language, is that they easily start conversation with a stranger. But if you ask for help, after a while around you will be a council which will try to solve your problem. That is amazing!
I also asked them how do you see “Russian language and Russians?”. The answers fascinated me: rough, hard, evil… the most interesting was to see how Italians try to show Russian accent. It really remind me of Hitlers speech! I think i should make more notes about that, it can become a great story.
But article should be about my trip to Milan. Some Italians say they love that place, someone hate it and lose they self there. I am more closer to the second opinion…
Of course everything started in Duomo di Milano. Even in February there was a very long line to get on the roof. They say there are more statues on this gothic-style cathedral than any other building in the world. There are 3,400 statues that decorate Milan Duomo!
Ti voglio bene!
