We Italians should appreciate our country more.
We live in one of the most beautiful places in the world. We have Venice, Florence, Rome, Milan, Naples, Sicily, the Amalfi Coast, the Emerald Coast, the lake of Como… In Italy you can do whatever you want. Do you want to go the sea? We have that. Do you want to go skiing? We have the Alps and the Apennines. Do you want to enjoy the breeze of the lake? Just go to Como or Bellagio (George Clooney has a house here!!!).
We have the best food in the world (I mean, let’s be honest).
The best fashion designers are Italian and Milan is the fashion capital of the world.
Also Italy is considered the birthplace of Western civilization. Think about the Romans! Our cultural heritage is just….. immense? Literally half the world’s great art treasures are in Italy. And Italian art is what makes museums like the British Museum or the Louvre so famous and important. Leonardo, Michelangelo, Raffaello, Tiziano, Botticelli, Caravaggio… And we also had great scientists, Galileo Galilei, Enrico Fermi are just an example.

We live in such a beautiful country and we don’t appreciate it…
I am very proud to be an Italian.

Sorry I had to make this one digital, and for not updating for so long… my life is a mess right now, but I’m managing to make things right again =D

Hey I was wondering if you have any advice/resources for learning Italian? Thanks

For resources, I recommend these lists:

As far as advice goes, for vocabulary I recommend Memrise, Duolingo, and Babadum. As well as my favorite, LyricsTraining. Also, there are so many amazing Italian movies that you can use to improve your comprehension! I love them. As for grammar, for verbs, I find that a website like Conjugemos is great at helping you see the patterns.
