I have seen some articles about answering questions, the last one in @CoquiCoin profile! So I have found on Internet a list of 10 questions that foreign people usually ask Italian people. I have decided to try to answer, even if some are really strange!
1. How can you eat all that pasta and men are still so cool?
We eat pasta, it is true but not always. We are like to live in a Mediterranean country so our diet is the Mediterranean, really mixed with meat/fish and vegetables/fruits. In addition, we have really good and warm weather so outdoor activities are encouraged. Ps: we have "not cool" men too.
2. Do you eat always pasta and don't you get bored?
See answer 1, we don't eat only pasta... It would be the same as saying French people eat only crepes and croissants or English eating only fish and chips! We have also delicious Pizza, and yes, I could eat pizza every day without any problems.
3. How can be tanned every time in the year?
Luckily we have sun most of the time of the year and the weather is warm so it is pleasant to stay outside in some park or garden. I think that depends on people and what you do for a living, for example, I work in agriculture and obviously, people working in field can do more outdoor activities compared to someone that works in an office.
4. Why do you move always your hands when you talk?
I would say that help to explain our idea and enhance the concept! There are some jokes that say that if you want an Italian to be quiet you must bond his hands. Maybe this is true?
5. How can you be so sexy?
This is strange. I have experienced on myself and I think that people from other countries have this magic idea of us, I don't know why but we are not all sexy and not amazing at all. We have our faults too.
6. In Italy do street rules exist? if yes, why don't you respect it?
Ahahahahahahah this is funny but sadly sometimes it is true, overall in traffic hours. We are all in a hurry and be feel the smartest at that moment, so we try not to follow rules even if it is really risky. So pay always attention when you drive!
7. Why do you have so many dialects?
We have a lot of dialects and for local people, these dialects are really important, sometimes more important than Italian. I think we have so many due to all the people that have reigned and tried to conquer Italy all over the years... Every population left a sign
8. How can you eat so much for dinner?
Personally, I don't eat so much for dinner but I know some people that skip lunch due to busy days at work so at the end of the day they are really hungry!
9. How can you be so elegant?
A lot of fashion brands are from Italy, this is real... but I don't think we are particularly elegant. Maybe thanks to all the brands here we have a huger choice of clothes and style?
10. Why are you so "mommy's boy"?
This is definitely true. We are really related to our parents and family and it is really difficult for us going to live away - I have seen this problem really spread among my friends. I think it is only more comfortable to stay at home with mum/dad doing all the cooking, housework, etc... We can say we are lazy too :D
I have some Italian friends and also many whose parents are Italian. And I really love how they move their hands while talking. In Caracas, the way of driving is also risky. But I don't know if I would dare to drive in Italy, at least not in Rome. ;) Thank you for the tag :)
