The negative side of this is that, while you may also be a genius in the kitchen, your Italian partner might kick you out.
Dutch dates The general convention in Italy is that the guy will pay for your date, so gentlemen should make sure they bring enough money to cover the bill in case she doesn't offer to chip in.
Think carefully before starting a conversation with “three nuns walked into a bar...” Kids In spite of the fact that Italians love kids, they are having fewer children than ever before.
But now that the government has introduced a 'baby bonus' to those who reproduce it might not be long before you start to hear the pitter-patter of tiny feet.
Just because your cute Italian friend hugs you and ruffles your hair, it doesn't necessarily mean there is a romantic interest from their part.
