  • Repubblica Italiana (Italian Republic), Nickname: “Bel Paese” which means a beautiful country. Rome its capital city was founded in 753BC.

  • La famiglia is very much a part of the Italian culture. In fact, it’s common for single children to live at home until their 30s.

  • Italy is home to the world’s oldest university, the University of Bologna founded in 1088.

  • Don’t be surprised if your hotel in Italy doesn’t have a 17th floor. Italians believe that this number is unlucky because when the Roman numeral for 17 (XVII) is rearranged it looks like VIXI, which means “I have lived,” a symbol that’s associated with death.
