What Italians and Italy are famous for …

Italy is famous for being one of the spots in Europe where culture , scientists, artists and thinkers have greatly contributed to the rennaissance and development of Europe historically .The saying that ” Rome was not built in one day .”  And ” All the ways lead to Rome .” imply that Rome was an important center in the Roman empire that controlled the Mediterranean territories in Europe , west Asia or today Middle East and North Africa. Rome has a culture that dates back to antiquity.

Modern Italy has a great culture including music  , cuisine , architect , fashion and Industry .  The following truth make Italy among the most visited and popular touristic destinations in the world. Moreover ,  Italy has a great economic power , as it the 3rd largest economy in the EUROPEAN union . What makes Italy and the Italians  popular and great are the following :

1. Italy is famous for Opera and the Piano instrument that was invented in Italy (The invention of the piano is credited to Bartolomeo Cristofori (1655–1731) of Padua, Italy ). Famous Italian singers are Luciano Pavarotti and Andrea Bocelli,  ( only to mention a few ). Ballet dancing was invented in Italy at first to spread to the whole earth as an art in dancing .

2 . Italy has a great architectural heritage , historic wonderful buildings and ancient churches as it was a Catholic country and still possesses   a Catholic center being the Vatican city . Pisa tower is a very famous remainder of the ancient world since the     12 th century.

3 . Italy is well known for its artists especially painters like Leonardo Da Vinci  (  Leonardo di ser Piero da Vinci, more commonly Leonardo da Vinci or simply Leonardo, was an Italian polymath of the Renaissance whose areas of interest included invention, painting, sculpting, architecture, … Wikipedia )…

4 . Italy is well known for  fashion in designing jewelry, furniture and clothing.  They have well known brands like pucci,  versace, and others.  The love of fashion in Italy is known since centuries … Milan and Rome are important fashion centers in the world alongside Paris , New York and London …

7 . Italian scientists have contributed to scientific research and development since the Middle ages . As an Example of many and according to a reference in Wikipedia , Galileo Galilei (Italian: [ɡaliˈlɛːo ɡaliˈlɛi]; 15 February 1564 – 8 January 1642) was an Italian astronomer, physicist and engineer, sometimes described as a polymath.Galileo has been called the “father of observational astronomy”, the “father of modern physics”, the “father of the scientific method”,and the “father of modern science”. Another thing I found that the Italian scientists have contributed to is Electroplating , ( which  is a process that uses an electric current to reduce dissolved metal cations so that they form a thin coherent metal coating  to  protect an electrode from corrosion in a battery. Electroplanting has contributed to producing electric batteries later on .

8 .North of Italy belongs to the developed industrialized world while the South is somehow  like a developing country .

9. The Italians are generally hospitable and friendly just like the Spanish and many other Mediterranean people .

10 . The Italians are known to be family oriented and it is a reason why some companies in Italy are family owned …

11. Millions of  Italians have migrated to Australia , North America and Latin America …

12 . The Italian people  love fashion and being dressed in a good way . It is no surprise that the Italian people have many famous brands of clothes .

13 . The Italian people are generally less organized than people of North Europe , Germany and Uk .

14 . Italian people are louder than other Counterparts of Europe ( like German , French , British and Swedish ). Like many Mediterranean people  they speak in a loud voice usually.

15 . Their language is musical using the vowel letters o  a lot like Italiono , besso ( means a kiss ), Romeo , and ” a  ” like prana and bella ( means ) beautiful  . They have an accent or dialect  that is special that I noticed when I saw Italian people In Tunisia in North Africa .Viva Italia means long live Italy…

16.  I was told that in the past , the Italians used to build their houses from natural rocks but now things have changed .They are well known for building  with Red bricks on the roofs of the houses . In Lebanon , some of the red bricks and other building materials are brought or imported from Italy . Italian building materials  are well known in my country Lebanon and in the Middle East or Near East.

17 . Italy has been a commercial center in the Mediterranean and many Italian cities have prospered due to trading activities in the past .

18. In my country Lebanon , some say that some princes here have imported small Pine trees from Italy to plant them in the region of Mount Lebanon. I see Pine trees from photos taken from Italy …

19. Italian people , like many Mediterranean people , have usually darker skin than other people from Northren and Eastern parts of Europe.

20 . Last , but not least , has a moderate climate , with  sunny beaches in the summer , and skiing resorts in the winter …

These are good characteristics of the Italian people and Italian peninsula that makes Italy uniquely positioned as a touristic destination very popular on the plannet. I have heard a lot about Italy from people who visited Italy and worked    in Italy . Many things are said about Italy and I have read also about the very famous traveler Marco polo who went to the far east reaching China and describing his journey … I hope you enjoy reading …
