I received a comment on this blog recently from a high school student in Hurricane, West
. Giorgio Tomassetti is native to Virginia and is in the Ascoli Piceno for a one year exchange student program. He has a blog, “un anno a stelle e strisce” (a year of stars and stripes) where he talks about his experiences in United States . It is interesting to see his views on my home country just as he finds it interesting to see my views of his hometown. His blog is in Italian but if you have even a little language knowledge you can understand what he is talking about as his blog is full of photos and video, be sure to check it out. America
If you want to read a humorous twist on Italians’ views of
there is a good book by Beppe Severgnini titled “Ciao, America !”. He gives some interesting insights on America from his experience living in the America area. Washington, DC
Looking at yourself through another person’s viewpoint does make you wonder why we do some of the things we do.
