Spaghetti, pizza, mandolino.

Just in case this fact has somehow slipped your attention... I love Italy. Yes, probably the country I love the most, if I don't count my beloved Slovenia in. So, last night, in one of those nostalgia little trips I started browsing pics of some better documented trips to Italy and decided I might share a few with you. Ok, a few is about 120, so I threw it all in Italia!!! set on Flick. I hope you enjoy it just a little bit of what the country has given me. Here's just a teaser. Probably one of my favourite pictures of all times...

I agree. Apart from my beloved England, Italy is my favourite country. I could happily live there.

If he *really* didn't like it, he'd probably do something about it. :)

Viva Italia! I always wondered whether they actually serve pizza in any regions of Italy. I think of it as American food that took over the world... does it have two crusts, one on top as well as one on the bottom? Some of the pizzerias in New York have that as an option.

hehehehehe OF COURSE they actually serve pizza all over Italy, but given my - limited - American experience, Italian pizzas are something completely different, lighter, with well formed and pronounced taste not that all-you-can-put-on shit I was able to witness - and unfortunately eat - in the States.

We have been told that the original pizza was made in honor of Queen Margherita in the 19th century and had red sauce, white cheese and green basil leaves for the Tricolore, the Italian flag....

Sei così nostalgico, romantico, un vero cucciolone, Iggy è molto fortunato ad averti vicino. Così come io pure sono fortunato ad avere una persona che mi fa vivere ogni giorno. Son così contento di avervi conosciuto e spero di vedervi presto. Un bacione.

Lovely pics, but great one of Iggy. Oh I adore Italy and can never ever get enough of this beautiful country. Hopefully we will get to see a little part of it with you soon. Venice IS still on the list, isn't it?
