Un detallado mapa sobre “la cabeza de los italianos”, sin cipreses ni chianti, con las hermanos del David y los primos de la Venus que comen, beben, duermen, se estacionan y trabajan. I loved learning about history, architecture, and Italian life and mindset. I found many of the ideas not mentioned here to be either grossly-self delusional or typically glazed over, but that there was enough honesty and insight to more than counterbalance that, as in that this has become the most interesting cultural examination of Italy that I have yet come across.

The tales jumped all over the place with little or no ttesta. I’m not sure this one advanced the “Italian Mind” ball for me.
