Return to Book Page. The author, Beppe Severgnini, takes you on a fun journey through the landscape of Italy while cleverly portraying the way of life of the Italian people. He loves being Italian and coaxed me to “fall in love” with him and his compatriots too. But, don’t worry about remembering which is which, because after explaining both the difference and its importance, he then proceeds to refer to both ideas with the uniform monikor “Italy” for the rest of the text.

A great interesting italani It can be rated as a book belonging to the Berlusconi era, which is likely to be remembered as a period of disaster for Italian culture in the future.

La testa degli italiani
The tales jumped all over the place with little or no segue. The author is a northerner [from Crema] but he does have a good sense of the problems of the south of Italy. The author is a perfect example of the type of Italian he describes – with a touch of genius, but insufferably arrogant.
