Things I learned being married to an Italian
1) Pasta is a staple.You can count on dining on it 3 or 4 times a week.
It's ingrained like coffee in the culture.
2) All Italians speak with their hands. All the the gesturing has meanings and you don't need a guide for most to get the meaning.
3) Italians speak 2 ways Loud and LOUDER. It has partially to do with their passion but also the next item.
Italian families can come close to making up their own small families i.e. the loud and lounder and hand gestures.
Italian pride is like no others in their food,culture and families.They love being Italian and every venue of it.
Italian families know everything...even what you had for dinner last night. No secrets
Everyone loves Italians and we love everyone
