Si, siamos Turisti

Goffreddo Parise (I’m reading Italian short stories in Italian and English to learn to speak a little better) described perfectly that piece of Italian culture I admire so much, and seem to be missing out on.

I'm pretty sure this isn't allowed.

“Erano dotati per vivire, avevano quel genio italiano, ma non di tutti gli italiani, di muoversi, di camminare e di sorridere che è come bagnato dal mare Mediterraneo.”

They had a talent for living, having that Italian gift, that not all Italians have, for moving, for walking, and for smiling which was bestowed upon them by the waters of the Mediterranean sea.
