Italy Off Road
The beauty of Italy
Part of my childhood took place in my beloved Italy. And you know... the Offroad Gods have been so extraordinarily good to Italy.
The grace of Italy
So many different landscapes, so many beautiful views. Cities, villages, art, design and food... Everything that has been touched by an Italian has such great taste and grace.
De gratie van Italië
Zoveel verschillende landschappen, zoveel prachtige vergezichten. Steden, dorpen, kunst, design en eten.... Alles dat is aangeraakt door een Italiaan heeft zo'n geweldig goede smaak en gratie.
'The Italian' does not exist. The identification is primarily with the family and the village. This is called 'Campanilismo', the world that is your own extends to where you can see and hear the campanile, the bell tower. Only then comes identification with the region and the nation (certainly not with the state!). In every region the people have their own nature. But there are a few common denominators:
Italians are known for their hospitality, their pride in their local traditions, and their strong ties with family and their own community. They are friendly, warm, open and hospitable. They enjoy the good life, especially in regard to food and wine. And they like to share that good life. Especially with their guests. Like no other, they are able to serve up a meal that will make you spontaneously drool, wherever you are or go.
Let's go! Yesterday!
