Italian

I am Italian by heritage. My great-grandfather came here on a boat from Sicily. I have never been there and I dont know any Italian though...

I like pasta and the Rocky movies. That makes me Italian enough.

My father's Italian, and he's not that way. He does yell a lot more than anyone though. Some Italians are known to raise their voices easily, though. We're all not 'arrogant hot-heads' though. My grandpa lived in Italy for a while before he came here and he's one of the most calm people I've ever met.

Growing up, out next door neighbors were Italian...the Capitanos. I can still taste Mrs. Capitano's manicotti. If I was any ethnicity other than pure, driven cracker, I'd want to be Italian. The food, the cars, the women. Did I mention the food. Mamma mia.

I had an Italian teacher once, I never did like her. The whole time I was just waiting for her to whack the whole class.

The food, yes.
The women, maybe. Some were just plain ugly in The Godfather.
The cars, I'm gonna need a picture.

You're not familiar with Lambourghini, Ferrari, or Maserati?

My grandmother is from Italy, and my mom is annoying and acts like she is. When I was really really little, I was spoken to more in Italian than English. I know little things now, and can understand enough that it surprises me, but not enough to start yapping in Italian. But because it's my mother's side of the family, I refuse to acknowledge my Italian heritage.

Sophia Loren...in her prime, of course.

Why?

I'm Italian at all, I live in Bolzano Novarese, "near" Milano. I suggest to visit Venice (Venezia), Rome (Roma), la Toscana, la Puglia, in general all Italy.
Exactly as i supposed Italy is known only for his food and for its car, and a common idea is that we are very touchy! In part is true, in part.
If someone want to speack italian with me can send me an e-mail or PM me, see you later!

Ciao...when the food is that good and the cars are Ferraris...can you really blame me for thinking that way.
