Info about, for or on Italian myths


Here are some links about, for or on Italian myths:

  • 4 Italian Myths Debunked – "You’ve heard it said that “things sound better in Italian,” right? I have, for instance, stopped calling it “fruit salad” altogether. Because when I tell my family we’re having “macedonia” for dessert it sounds so much more intriguing. That romantic ideal that many Italophiles (including yours truly) have attached to the sound of Italian words for mundane things can also extend to the Italian stories we hear while we travel through the country. Even if there’s evidence to the contrary, it can be fun to believe stories that just sound good.Well-meaning tour guides or travel writers have perpetuated some Italian myths, perhaps because they didn’t do their homework or because they just like the sound of the myth. Well, I like truths, even if they come at the expense of something that sounds more romantic. So here are four Italian myths, and the truths they hide." – by: Jessica Spiegel – "ABOUT" Source: Italy Explained – "TRAVEL GUIDE | STORE | BLOG | ABOUT | MAIL"
