Any Italians here?

Post by publicduende » August 2nd, 2012, 11:33 am

Just struck me I have never asked the question: is there any Italian forum member here? Maybe an Italian living abroad, or planning to do so, for romance, work or else?

There certainly are - just search for "Italian" and see who you find.

Oh cool, I do remember about your Italian plans, didn't know you are of Italian descents. Ma parli un po' Italiano? :)

I did do a Google search on the forum before, but couldn't find any direct reference to an Italian member, hence the post. Thanks anyway.

No I don't speak any Italian. But you don't really need to as most of the younger generation speaks English.


True. In fact you will find Italian youngsters an Italy town will jump at the opportunity to converse in whatever English they know. Unlike, say, the Japanese, Italian's spoken English is generally poor, but that surely won't put us off. Where in Italy are you going? Hopefully somewhere down south. Winter can be quite cold in most areas in Italy.

I can't wait to talk to some good looking Italian girls though. Most are sweethearts. Girls in the south are generally prettier and have bigger breasts.


Not necessarily, touristy places like Naples usually have shops open till late (8 PM and sometimes later). Bars, pubs, restaurants and other assorted food traders will be open till midnight anyway, which gives places a lively atmosphere.

Have you made contact with a couple of such girls?

Not recently, I have an ex-girlfriend in Turino. But I don't think I will be seeing her this trip :lol:

I honestly have no problems meeting girls at pubs/cappuccino bars or random places. During the holidays they will obviously be busy with their families but after that it shall be easy.

Generally I have heard guys having a hard time in Italy because it's hard to compete with Italian guys? Italian guys are easy to compete with in my opinion.


I don't think girls are busy with their families during the holidays, unless of course they're tourists and sightseeing with their Mamas and Papas at short distance :) Make sure you hang around places where you have the most chance to meet groups of locals, places like Piazza della Signoria and the Oltrarno (south of the river) area are the hotspots. It's full of venues there, I still remember a couple from my past visits (one of my cousins used to live there), Kitsch and Cafe Slowly are the only names I remember, but I'm sure there are many more.

I don't think there's a lot of "competition" with Italian guys. We Italians are big xenophiles and whoever sports a different look and language will immediately draw attention. The good kind of attention. You might start talking to a random guy thinking that's all there is for the night, until he will suddenly ask you to join his "comitiva" (= group) over at a venue or street corner. A comitiva is always a mix of established couples and a few single guys and gals. We're usually pretty relaxed about that, unles you happen to woo one a girl who has already been targeted by another guy in the group. You might think this sounds a lot like teenage cliques, truth is most Italians always maintain a small group of friends they know they can trust and have comraderie with. This goes on well into our late 20s. By they way try as hard as you can to make your way into a group of university students. Florence University is right in the centre, not a far away campus like in the US, and these young students have the life of Riley partying at friend's place. I think that's your best chance to get to know interesting and open-minded people.

How old are you btw?

Either that, or you're being spot on on our current economic situation. We're in deep doo-doo, paisa' :)
