Jun 14, Ana Rigby rated it it was ok. Jane rated it it was amazing Jun 10, I didn’t take much interest with the travels south of the country surprisingly but I just didn’t enjoy them as much as the northern areas, Milan in particular. Un viaggio sevdrgnini, autocritico e divertente attraverso il nostro modo di vivere oggi. I was interested in the topic but the author’s writing italaini annoyed me.

Thanks for telling us about the problem.

Thanks for telling us about the problem. The tales jumped all over the place with little or no segue. Concetta Miragliuolo rated it it was amazing Jul 12, Books by Beppe Severgnini. I found the summary of the book iatliani the form of the epilogue to be sufficient and better suited to tell the story than the previous pages.

Most useful and interesting to me were his spectacular clarification of the success of Silvio Berlusconi in Italy, his debunking of the dual legends of the luxurious Naples and slack jawed Naepolitians, and his the incredibly extensive list of cultural observations and affirmations that I fit only a small glimpse of here.

This is the first time Sevrgnini read him in English, so perhaps some of his charm was lost in translation, but ultimately what made this book just ok for me is the fact that even though it’s just 7 years old, it feels really dated, and he constantly compares everything to the US, and most of the times he’s dead wrong about what Americans are really like.

La testa degli italiani by Beppe Severgnini (5 star ratings)

The author is humorous and clearly well educated on his subject. Definitely didn’t think this book would turn out the way it did.

Very opinionated, yet he makes his claims as if they are fact or should go unquestioned. I would enjoy a tour by Beppe though. It was just a bad, boring book. But, don’t worry about remembering which is which, because after explaining both the difference and its importance, he then proceeds to refer to both ideas with the uniform monikor “Italy” for the rest of the text.

Refresh and try again. I don’t think the author did a good job of writing and I don’t think he tackled his subject matter particularly well. It can be rated as a book belonging to the Berlusconi era, which is likely to be remembered as a period of disaster for Italian culture in the future. Your Italy and degl Italia are not the same thing.

Tung Nguyen rated it it was italianii Oct 18, Lolobull rated it it was amazing Feb 16, No trivia or quizzes yet. The author is a perfect example of the type of Italian he describes – with a touch of genius, but insufferably arrogant.

PaperbackBUR Saggipages. I found many of the ideas not mentioned here to be either grossly-self delusional or typically glazed over, but that there was enough deglli and insight to more than counterbalance that, as in that this has become the most interesting cultural examination of Italy that I have yet come across.
