Ever heard the saying, “Not everyone can be Italian, but everyone wants to be?” It is not difficult to see why that would be true, Italians are just better at most things. They are the leaders of innovation, flavor, and style. Here are the top 10 things Italians do better than everyone else.
This is just a given because Italian food is the best. Nothing can match its rich flavor, the handcrafted skill, and overall presentation. Why do you think the country offers so many food tours? Italians can take anything and turn into a mouth-watering creation. I mean, tomatoes aren’t even native to the country, but as soon as they arrived, Italians took that ingredient and perfected it.
Andrea Bocelli. Pavarotti. Verdi. Puccini. Frank Sinatra. Frankie Valli. These are just a few of the dozens of Italian contributors to the music world. Bocelli is a national treasure, while Puccini composed some of the most moving operas ever. Meanwhile, Frank Sinatra, though Italian-American, set the musical standard for all who came after him.
3. Family Gatherings
You’ve never been to a family gathering like an Italian family gathering. From your cousin’s cousin to your uncle who isn’t really your uncle, everyone comes to an Italian party. There are about ten courses served every time, and the wine is always flowing. The conversation is loud, and the laughter even louder. You’ll always leave feeling full and happy you went.
Just like family gatherings, Italian festivals are some of the biggest, loudest events anyone could ever attend. People gather in the streets for parades and performances to celebrate important religious figures/events or simply just Italian pride. The Italians have a festival for everything.
5. Sports Cars
Italian sports cars are the gold standard in the automotive industry. Their manufacturers understand the need for speed, but also a desire for luxury. Their sports cars are sleek and sophisticated, something everyone dreams of getting behind the wheel.
Italians are some of the most fashionable individuals. From Prada to Versace, they understand the power of an outfit with clean lines and neutral colors. On they also appreciate the statement a bold color can make in an ensemble. Every day is an opportunity for Italians to showcase their impeccable taste, and they take full advantage.
Italians are grade A fighters. They have a temper, and if you push them, they will bury you with the ferocity of their words. Italians have a long memory. They will bring up events you had long forgotten about, just to gain the upper hand. Anger an Italian at your own peril.
Do I even need to elaborate on this one? I mean, Italian artists basically set the standard for future generations. From the Sistine Chapel to the Mona Lisa, Italian artwork is everywhere. They can evoke wonder and mystery all in one creation. And don’t even get me started on the unparalleled skill behind Michelangelo’s David.
There’s a reason Italians tend to live so long. They live a life full of socialization that keeps their minds sharp and thrive off a diet of fresh food grown from their own gardens. Also, there is something in those Italian genes because no matter how old an Italian gets, they always manage to look fantastic.
Italians know how to appreciate the little things in life. They appreciate their time spent with loved ones or strolling through their city streets. Italians savor the hours it takes to prepare a home-cooked meal while also understanding the importance of a good nap afterward.
