I really felt as though I had received an excellent introduction to the Italian mindset! Italy is the only workshop in the world that can turn out both Botticellis and Berlusconis. While I learned that as an overthinker who flies by the seat of his pants when travelling, I may relate more to Italians than Americans, I think that’s about all I learned.
I didn’t take much interest with the travels south of the country surprisingly but I just didn’t enjoy them as much as the northern areas, Milan in particular. I don’t think the author did a good job of writing and I don’t think he tackled his subject matter particularly well. We want to think about it.
It’s the kind of book that says “Yeah, we’re Italian, and we’re basically the best” without actually coming out and saying it. Trivia About La Bella Figura: Concetta Miragliuolo rated it it was amazing Jul 12, We want to decide whether a particular law applies to sevfrgnini specific case.
Unfortunately for me an Italian enthusiast, evenmany of the references were too obscure. Severnini took me two months to read this book.

A great, quick read! But the book is a fun read and mostly interesting, despite the sometimes cocky attitude that comes off the writing style. Un viaggio ihaliani noi stessi, quello che siamo, come appariamo agli occhi di chi ci conosce per turismo e come siamo realmente.

It’s the kind of place that can have you fuming and then purring in the space of a hundred meters, or in the course of ten minutes. Severgnini does severgniini in-depth, self-deprecating, witty and humorous study of the Italian way of seeing the world; not much different than other Latin countries, really.
Severgnini is a comic writer, but I was not amused. There were two places in the book that really drew me in, and that was because I had actually experienced them before.
Your Italy and our Italia are not the same thing. I think there were way too many generalizations that could have been stated about other Europeans, too.
