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.
