The Italian Postal Service (Poste Italiane) is more than just your typical post office. Their stated purpose is: “To grow responsibly thanks to the decisive contribution of its people for the sustainable success, innovation, digitization and social cohesion of the country”, which sounds a little different to me than the US Postal Service.

The phrase “La Dolce Vita” literally translates to “The Sweet Life”, but it is meant to describe living a good life, full of luxury, pleasures and indulgences. Some might consider the concept as hedonistic, shallow and materialistic, but others would view it as simply carefree.

Italian culture is everywhere and I explain why it is so popular in media, entertainment and restaurants. You’ll book your trip to Rome after reading this! Many people are obsessed with Italian culture in the US, but clearly not everyone and a question that was recently posted was: “Are you tired of watching everyone you know go to Italy?”. This question was posted in a recent article on Eater and while the article was fairly short, the debate it sparked was considerably greater.

Over the years, I’ve heard and repeated the idea that tipping isn’t necessary in Italy. It was described as a cultural difference between the US and Europe where wait staff, for example, are paid a living wage and as such, tipping isn’t expected. In the US, however, the waiters and waitresses are expected to survive on a sub-minimum wage and because of this, you really need to add the extra 20% if everything went well.

It is important that brave Italians who fought the good fight are remembered with their memories being kept alive through a range of media sources. I wanted to highlight another of my favorite figures from modern Italian history who fought tirelessly for Italy and paid the ultimate price with the cost being their lives. They can act as an inspiration to others looking to challenge injustices when they see it in their lives.

It shouldn’t surprise anyone who has been mystified by the wide array of Italian wines available in the U.S. that alcohol has historically been an important part of Italian culture. Wine has been the dominant drink of choice for a long time, but beer has been growing in popularity as well. Consumption of alcoholic beverages centers around meals and more commonly takes place at home, but there is ample opportunity to enjoy a carafe or bottle of wine out at a restaurant.

There are fourteen national holidays in Italy, with 12 of them public holidays and 2 of them non-public holidays, meaning you don’t typically get a day off and the stores are not closed on the non-public holidays. If you have read much of this blog, you might expect that my focus of holidays is the type of food available. Not all holidays include a meal, but those that do are very special to me.
