People of Italy

One of the best things about Italy are the Italian people themselves. Even people who aren’t Italian or of Italian descent always say the same things about the Italians. They are warm, passionate and happy people. I loved the people when I was there and that is one of the reasons I keep going back.

Here are some photos of just a day in the life of the Italian people  –

A shoemaker in Palermo cutting the leather by hand to make men’s shoes


A woman in Rome selling my favorite dolci


A man cleaning his vegetables from the back of his truck in Martina Franca


A man in his workshop in Colle d’Anchise, village of my paternal grandparents and home of my newly discovered cousins

    I agree that the Italian people are the best thing about Italy. I wrote a post called The Best of Italy, saying just this.

    Never been to Italy but I know a lot of Italian Americans and they are all very warm people. From Tony and Al in my youth and Georgio in my adulthood, nice people. And then there was Margie. The only other sane person and excellent nurse at a place I worked. Of course, that is the Margie of this blog. A really fine person. She manages to see the best in everyone.

    I’m from Palermo. That specific type of pizza is called “Sfincione”. It’s a culinary specialties of my city and a very traditional tasty street food. 🙂
