Living in Italy, there are some stuffs that I consider have made the country become so famous in the world. After having been here for four years (by next month), there are things that I can never deny about the standard “Made in Italy”. I notice three things so far.
Fashion and Design
Milan, the metropolitan city of Italy, is one of the best fashion cities worldwide. Many famous designers come from here, such as Gucci, Armani, Prada, Dolce & Gabbana, Versace, etc. The fashion products made in Italy are some of the most wanted things worldwide. Everyone who can have any of Italian products feels the prestige in having them.
Not only fashion, Italy is also famous for its designs such as furniture for example. Every single year, in Milan, there has been prestigious Milan Design Week (Salone del Mobile) plus its fuori salone when you can witness the spectacular Italian designs and also other famous designs from around the world.
Everyone is crazy about Italian food. Not only Italians themselves, not only foreigners who are staying in Italy, but all the people worldwide are also crazy about Italian food. Pizza and pasta are not only very famous in its home country but they are also famous in other countries.
For example, pasta like lasagna, tagliatelle, spaghetti or fusilli are mostly common anywhere in the world. In addition, not only particularly food, Italian coffee must have been one of the most wanted coffee drinks in the world too.
Italy as a country is the paradise for history, beautiful nature and uncountable cultural places as it has the most number for UNESCO’s world heritage sites. You can find so many fantastic sceneries and places to visit anytime such as lakes, mountains, beaches, historical old cities, museums and many others from the North to South Italy.
For example, nobody can ever deny the beauty and history of cities like Rome, Venice, Milan (who is making history this year by hosting Universal Expo 2015), Naples, Florence and many others that I cannot mention as the list goes on.
Certainly, there are still many other stuffs to write about Italy. Nevertheless, these three are the top list that I have noticed about the country. What about you?
