One of the most popular tourist destinations is the Amalfi Coast, known in Italian as the Costiera Amalfitana. Find out more about this Italian gem here! When you walk on the coastal path you can smell the scent of Lemons. While the Amalfi Coast has many gorgeous beaches to spend the day on, be aware that some towns are perched high above the beaches. The towns which right down to the beach include Amalfi, Atrani, Cetara, Maiori, Minori, Praiano and Positano. The beaches along the coast will seem like paradise, in small natural shelters, wonderful to relax on or go snorkelling in the shallow waters. Most are pebbled beaches; the Vietri Sul Mare is the sandy one, great for families.
Italian culture, steeped in the arts, architecture, music and food, has flourished for centuries. Here is a brief overview of Italian customs and traditions. Italian culture is steeped in the arts, family, architecture, music and food. Home of the Roman Empire and a major center of the Renaissance, culture on the Italian peninsula has flourished for centuries. 96% of italy is made up of Italians, although there are many other ethnicities that live in this country. Bordering Countries influenced Italy’s culture. The official language of italy is Italian. Natives Italians also speak other languages like French and so on. There's also many native languages as well. For example, Sardinian, Friulian, Neapolitan, Sicilian, ect. Family is extremely valuable in the Italian culture. Italians have frequent family gatherings and enjoy spending time with those in their family. "Children are reared to remain close to the family upon adulthood and incorporate their future family into the larger network," said Wagner. The major religion in Italy is Roman Catholicism. Roman Catholics and other Christians make up 80 percent of the population. The country also has a growing Muslim immigrant community. Italian cuisine has influenced food culture around the world and is viewed as a form of art by many. Wine, cheese and pasta are important part of Italian meals. Pasta comes in a wide range of shapes, widths and lengths, including penne, spaghetti, linguine, fusilli and lasagna.
His Five Star Movement limits its members’ terms in office, complicating Italy’s search for a government. But the party has bent its own rules before. Luigi Di Maio, at the age of 31, leads the five star movement in negotiations to form a new Italian government. He has a long political career ahead of him. But according to the rules of his party this is his last shot. “A fundamental rule of the Five Star Movement limits party members to two terms of elected office — at any level — over the course of their lifetime. Mr. Di Maio, who already served a term in Parliament, to which he was re-elected in March, is now in his second term.” The party has created a complication in the stalemate. For now, Mr. Di Maio says he is seeking support in Parliament from the center-left Democratic Party, which suffered a crushing defeat and was incessantly demonized by Five Star’s vast and often virulent social media network.
There were some major events that shaped Italy. The four events that I found to have a big impact on Italy is The Revolution of 1848, The 1861 Unification of Italy, The Rise and Fall of Fascism in the 20th Century, and the formation of the Italian Republic, 1946. The 1848 Revolution was a big turning point for all of Europe. The revolution of 1848 started in Rome. After ruler Pope Pius XI abandoned the war against austria, Italian revolutionaries overthrew his administration and declared a new Roman Republic. This was not a long time effect. However the French helped the Austrians defeat the Roman Republic, so they were then ruled by foreign rulers. This is what led to “the turning point at which modern history failed to turn.” The 1861 Unification of Italy picked up right where the Revolution of 1848 left off. After a two year offensive which resulted in the liberation of several Italian states, Garibaldi clashed with fellow unifier Cavour, and eventually handed over his free states in the name of unification. In 1861, Italy was finally declared a nation-state under the ruler Victor Emmanuel II. The Rise and Fall of Fascism in the 20th Century was like any other European country… In debt and its government and people divided. “To reunite the country, Benito Mussolini founded the Fascist Party who promised to restore Italy to its former glory by eradicating the liberal government. The Fascist Party truly coalesced during the 1922 March on Rome, and Mussolini officially became dictator in 1925” After a nationwide referendum following World War II in 1946, Italians voted in favor of a Republic, forever ousting the monarchy.
Italy is just a nickname for Italian Republican. The capital is Rome, and the population is 61,680,122 people. Italy is a boot shaped peninsula, which comes out of east Europe and is surrounded by Adriatic Sea, Tyrrhenian Sea, Mediterranean Sea, and other waters. In the south are hot, dry coastlands and fertile plains where olives, almonds, and figs are grown. There native language is Italian. Since the rise of the Roman Empire, Italian art, architecture, and culture have had an influence around the world.The people of the Italian culture are more of a family type group. Young people usually stay with there parents until they are in their 30’s, or when there parents retire they go and live with there kids. In Italy, politics are a great deal, there exciting and noisy, they have huge crowds gather in the street. Since World War II, Italy has enjoyed an economic transformation. Unlike the United States, Italy does not use the same bills or money system as us, in facts they use Euros. Italy had become one of the world's leading economies, and some of there main exports are clothing, shoes, food, and wine.
