“””FROM “THE ITALIANS” BY LUIGI BARZINI
“THE ITALIANS KNOW THAT EVERYTHING IN THEIR COUNTRY IS … IMBUED WITH THEIR SPIRIT. THEY KNOW THAT THERE IS NO NEED, REALLY, TO DISTINGUIS OR CHOOSE BETWEEN THE SMILE ON THE FACE OF A CAMERIERE AND DONATELLO’S SAN GEORGIO … THEY ARE ALL WORKS OF ART, THE GREAT ART OF BEING HAPPY AND OF MAKING OTHER PEOPLE HAPPY, AN ART WHICH EMBRACES AND INSPIRES ALL OTHER IN ITALY, THE ONLY ART WORTH LEARNING, BUT WHICH CAN NEVER BE REALLY MASTERED, THE ART OF INHABITING THE EARTH.”
