    9 Weirdly Wonderful Italian Facts

    1. Wine Fountain
      Caldari di Ortona in Italy has what may be to many, the finest water feature in the world. A free wine fountain! The Fontana di Vino in the Dora Sarchese vineyard, flows 24 hours a day and sits on the holy pilgrimage route of Cammino di San Tommaso.
    2. Party People
      Italy producers over 40,000,000 hectare litres of wine each year, accounting for nearly 20% of global wine production. They also make over 2,500 different types of cheese. It already sounds like quite a party!
    3. For The Love Of Pasta
      65% of Italians admit to eating pasta every day! On average Italians consume 25kg of the stuff every year. The nation’s love of pasta dates back to the 4th century. Historians discovered paintings in an Italian tomb predating the Roman era depicting pasta-making equipment. Yes, even then they were drawing about it! They also consume over 14 billion espressos a year (yes, you read that number right!!).
    4. McPasta
      Italians didn’t exactly welcome the concept of ‘fast food’ with open arms (and as any Italian will tell you, pizza is NOT a fast food!). When McDonalds opened in Rome, close to the Spanish Steps in 1986, locals were so outraged that they protested by handing out free spaghetti outside the doors of the restaurant.
    5. Three Coins in The Fountain
      Tourists throw over €3,000 of coins into the Trevi Fountain every single day! In 2016, an estimated €1.4 million taken from the fountain and donated to local charities. The tradition of throwing coins into the fountain stems from a local legend that says if you toss a coin from your right hand over your left shoulder and it lands in the fountain, you will return to Rome one day.
    6. Shakespeare’s Italy
      13 of William Shakespeare’s 38 plays are set in Italy. This is despite the fact that it’s believed he never visited the country (no coins in the fountain for our Billy).
    7. Baby Italy
      Much of Italy was once ancient Greece. In fact, while Rome is over 2,000 years old, historically, Italy is still in its infancy, the modern state didn’t officially exist until 1861. The nation of Rome built a powerful empire that extended over 2,300,000 miles and had a population of 56,000,000! Today Italy has more than 50 UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
    8. Cat Man Do
      Italians love cats! It is estimated that Rome alone is home to around 300,000 cats, in fact they’re the only residents to be allowed free access to the many Italian ruins such as the Colosseum.
    9. Gelato vs Ice Cream
      True Italian gelato is made fresh each day using natural ingredients and has 70% less fat than mass produced factory ice creams. It’s practically health food! (please note, Armishaws are not nutritionists and should be ignored on all dietary advice!).

    Moving to Italy – More Useful Information

    The Italian Peninsula famously extends into the Mediterranean with Italy’s two major islands (Sicily and Sardinia) forming the distinctive boot shape. Italy and its islands are home to a number of active and dormant volcanoes, winding rivers and stunning mountains. The many mountains, rivers and valleys run the length of the country before meeting the Alps.

    The Italian climate is widely diverse between the northern and southern regions, from snow tipped ski resorts to sand kissed beaches. In the winter, the high-altitude mountain ranges and rivers are a mecca for winter sports enthusiasts, whereas the most southern areas do not drop below 15°C. Winter can see -2°C bringing snow to Milan, while Palermo basks in 18+°C.

    The varied climate and landscape make Italy a wonderful place to discover and explore.

    Italy is a great mix of old and new. Traditional religions and family values are widely upheld. Italians are rightly proud of their Roman ancestry and the physical reminders that bring tourists to their homeland. Opera and the great artists and sculptors are also greatly revered, however Italy’s contemporary art, film, literature and music are superb with much for new-comers to dive into. You can explore an ancient Roman ruin by day and spend the night dancing at one of the many music festivals.
