Italian hospitalityFrom the first time I set foot in the country I have always been struck by Italian hospitality, particularly of the spontaneous kind. When, as happened this evening, you¬†are spontaneously invited into¬†somebody’s house, you are not only received with extraordinary generosity but you also eat and drink like a king. On this occasion the lady of the house magicked a delicious meal out of nothing in five minutes. It was just a lovely, simple experience; Italy at its best.
