Piazzas

 

An interesting thing about Italy is that, the central meeting spot across all the cities, towns and villages remains the piazza. You will always find people walking, sitting and relaxing around the piazza. These are also the common meeting points and home to local festivals, gatherings and celebrations. One thing is for sure, that in Italy you will always find people willing to talk to you and engage in healthy discussions. Also, you would know where to find them to strike a conversation. Piazza’s in Italy can help you make new friends and get accustomed to the new culture and get a feel of the place.
Café

You will find cafés at every corner of the street in Italy. You will also see Italians engaged in intense discussions over a coffee! Their topics of interest ranges from discussions on food, family, politics and especially soccer!

 

Hand movements and gestures

Italians use their hands for expressing and communicating. So just talking isn’t enough. You will see them use a lot of hand gestures to elaborate and emphasise on points.

Eating

Cooking is an art for the Italians. They give it due attention time. Where pasta is a full main meal in England, in Italy it is considered a start or first dish. Italians take as much time to finish their meal as possible. There is usually a start, first course, second course, a side dish, dessert, fruit and of course coffee! If you are invited over a traditional Italian dinner – then it may last three to four hours.

Driving

In England you are used to driving with both your hands on the steering wheel. The English tend to focus a lot more on the road. On the other hand, the Italians usually keep only one hand on the steering wheel. Use of mobile phone is also quite common while driving.

Moving to a new country is very exciting. You get to see new places, learn about their culture and moreover learn their language.
