Em,

Think of the recent exchange in this thread as a commedia or an opera buffa. I've seen it before, I know the script, I know the characters.

A dir la verita', e' una tragicommedia! :D :cry:

buonanotte,
Maria

Em,
No need to apologize. For a number of years I've been a member of many message boards dealing with all things Italian and I've seen this behavior many times. Putting down the USA to exalt Italy is a common topic. It's a syndrome that's begging for a name.

As for this 'link', I have never been on the website, and so, don`t know who this is, but his words are almost identical to mine. I guess to Maria we are the same person, but we are not.

From a teacher's standpoint I like the idea of a uniform or a strict dress code. I don't enjoy seeing cleavage, belly button rings and tatoos in places that should remain private. :( I'd love a uniform for teachers as well. It would actually save me money and a big decision I have to make every mor...

Maria, your link gives a similiar article by a Carlo, and are you suggesting that Carlo and Angiolo are the same person? I'm not suggesting anything. I just posted a link to a thread with a similar topic with some interesting commentaries. Em, you appear to want to deny what Angiolo says is true, b...

Em, The link below will take you to a days old thread where the subject brought up here by Angiolo about Illinois' education crisis was being discussed.

When in Italy, it's enough to go to Sunday Mass to see who the really devout Catholics are: the older generation. There are entire families in attendance but the majority is elderly and particularly women. This, I think, is a reflection of the population reality in Italy. In my Italian family, women...

I think the section in bold is the one pertinent to this discussion. From the Italian Consulate in San Francisco: 4) YOUR FATHER’S CERTIFICATE OF NATURALIZATION or his Italian passport and permanent resident card (“green card”). If the above is not available, you must request the following: A) a sta...
