Eating like an Italian Italians only use their fork to eat spaghetti. Using a spoon is for children. My friend on the other hand swears that in restaurants in Italy everybody uses a spoon. Though there are many individual regional cuisines in Italy, northern and southern Italian cuisines are primarily differentiated by the cooking fat and style of pasta commonly used. Northern Italian cuisine (other than on the coast) favors butter, cream, polenta, Mascarpone, Grana Padano, and Parmigiano cheeses, risotto and fresh egg pasta. Southern Italian cuisine tends toward Mozzarella, Caciocavallo and Pecorino cheeses, olive oil and dried pasta. Southern Italian cuisine also makes greater use of the ubiquitous tomato.

Fashion Elegance is in the Italian blood! Fashion is almost a national passion, and to see the latest trends one need only glance around the various piazzas, restaurants and streets. Interestingly, these are trends worn to show off the best of the wearer, and imperceptibly conceal any flaws: individual Italians for the most part follow trends that suit them. Besides, few fashion conscious Italians would go for something trendy that is not also durable, classic and genuine.
La Vita Bella Life Is Beautiful (Italian: La vita è bella) is a 1997 Italian tragicomedy drama film directed by and starring Roberto Benigni. Benigni plays Guido Orefice, a Jewish Italian book keeper, who must employ his fertile imagination to shield his son from the horrors of internment in a Nazi concentration camp. Part of the film came from Benigni's own family history; before his birth Roberto's father had survived three years of internment at the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp. The film was a critical and financial success, winning Benigni the Academy Award for Best Actor at the 71st Academy Awards as well as the Academy Award for Best Original Dramatic Score and the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v= pysuUJhOnv4 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v= pysuUJhOnv4

Appaearance, and facts For a long time, I’ve the impression Italians typically have dWhile areas down south are closer to the Mediterranean, hence the darker skin and dark hair. In fact, there is a whole melting pot going on in Italy since the 1930′s. Thanks to globalization there are many migrants settling down in Italy and starting their own family and children. Increasingly I’ve witnessed Black-Italians, Chinese-Italians, Arab- Italians, Filipina-Italians … the list goes on.
There are a huge 80% of Italian men above 30 years old who still live with their parents. And while there are some people who might scoff and find the entire idea as unfathomable, to still have their mothers to wash and clean for them as well as the lack of privacy and independence, the biggest reasoning as to why Italians stick with their parents for so long is mainly because of how expensive housing are. Thus they’d need some time to save up.
The Italian Stereotypes Italians are womanizers/adulterers- This stereotype actually has very old roots- stemming all the way back to the 1700s ( as best we can tell). Italians were always deemed “exotic” and as such could seduce otherwise happily married women. The same could be applied to Italian women who could be labeled as seductresses. Italians are loud/rude- A stereotype of unknown origin. However, it seems to tie into the "Italians are violent stereotype"- insofar as Italians just don't know how to act civilly. http://www.youtu be.com/watch?v=i SPc8oU7YI http://www.youtu be.com/watch?v=i SPc8oU7YI
