One of the best things about Italy are the Italian people themselves. Even people who aren’t Italian or of Italian descent always say the same things about the Italians. They are warm, passionate and happy people. I loved the people when I was there and that is one of the reasons I keep going back.
Here are some photos of just a day in the life of the Italian people –
A Sicilian selling pizza in Palermo
Four Italian men shooting the breeze on the Church steps in Longano
A shoemaker in Palermo cutting the leather by hand to make men’s shoes
A woman in Rome selling my favorite dolci
A man cleaning his vegetables from the back of his truck in Martina Franca
A man in his workshop in Colle d’Anchise, village of my paternal grandparents and home of my newly discovered cousins
