How Italian culture will change your life


How Italian culture will change your life


Everyone loves a brief taste of Italian style, but for those of you looking to live longer, you may find your life starting to change in unexpected ways.


You’re drinking more coffee!

It is impossible to escape the caffeine culture in Italy; any small meeting or chat is another opportunity for a drink. Even if you aren’t a coffee drinker before you arrive in Italian environment, you’ll soon know your espressos from macchiatos.



You only use local produce

Rich in culinary history, the best way to explore the delicacies of Italy is to try making them yourself so you should be finding yourself in the kitchen a lot more often.





You develop a sweet tooth

With your grander meals, you are definitely going to develop a taste for the sweeter side of Italian cooking. With a plethora of pastries, desserts, cakes, and sweet breads, you’ll be finding it hard to say no and the taste will linger so long, you’ll try to recreate it again at home.


You’re eating more, but snacking less

Italians eat with a much different schedule to the likes of the British or Americans. Sitting down for dinner at 10.00pm may seem daunting at first, especially with the regularity of four-course meals, but your body will adjust to the greater portions and you’ll find yourself cutting down on in-between meal snacks.


You have stronger family ties

With so many long-lasting businesses passing from generation to generation, it isn’t hard to see that family is the most important thing in Italy. We all like getting back in touch with home, but moving to Italy can spark a drive to reconnect with some of the relatives you may only be used to hearing from when holidays come around.


You’re in touch with your artistic side

With Italy’s rich history of renaissance art, picturesque, landscapes, and love of the opera, it shouldn’t be too hard for you to find a new love and try your hand at something creative. Without realizing it, the art and culture of Italy can carry you away, even if it is something as simple as singing more often!


Your emotions run free

The longer you stay in Italy, the more outspoken you’ll find yourself becoming. Not to say that you’ll become disruptive or unpleasant, it is merely the way Italians embrace their emotions and let everything out. It is their way of staying true to themselves and treating others with respect, rather than passively putting up with something due to an idea of politeness.



These are ways in which Italy changes our life. They are always more about the quality of life than just your appearance.
