Italy Profile

Flag of Italy

They've given us pasta, art and the language of music, and while it is not difficult to leave fully satisfied just by indulging in the north, one must encounter the warmth of the south of Italy. After letting your dreams float along the canals of Venice, enjoy the beauty of Rome, the passion of Naples and the allure of Palermo.

This country definitely was not built in a day as invasions and revolutions divided Italy, it also shaped its future. The Italian identity can be gleaned from the taste of its cuisine, the works of art and the spirit of the justifiably proud people.

The Italians have generously given us the Divine Comedy of Dante, the Renaissance, Baroque, the films of Fellini, Antonioni and Benigni. They didn't stop there, as inventors like Alessandro Volta helped create the battery and the Romans paved their roads to success.

Passionate about almost everything, the Romans, Leonardo da Vinci and the writings of Machiavelli have cemented the widely held view of Italian as an enchanting culture and language.

The musical world speaks their native tongue and the infamous Opera of La Scala has played host to their own famous artists, which include Giuseppe Verdi, Giacomo Puccini, Maria Callas and the late Luciano Pavarotti.
