The 9 types of train passenger you're guaranteed to encounter | Travel | Scoop.it
When George Stephenson built the first public inter-city railway line in 1830, I wonder if he had any idea of the weird and wonderful passengers that would use, and evolve, on these services over the years.

San Gimignano – The Unspoiled Rustic Charm of Tuscany

San Gimignano – The Unspoiled Rustic Charm of Tuscany | Travel | Scoop.it

If you have just been to Tuscany and haven’t been to the town of San Gimignano, then I suggest you to return back and visit this enchanting city of towers!
Honored as a world heritage site by UNESCO and acknowledged as the city of towers by CNN.com in 2010, San Gimignano thrives on a breathtaking skyline; and perhaps this is the reason it has been nicknamed as the medieval Manhattan by many.
San Gimignano has a great wealth of historical ruins. It had been ruled by many different empires and noble families since its origin. The history of this marvelously beautiful Tuscan town dates back to Etruscan era; in fact, it was a major stop of pilgrims who used to travel to Rome and Vatican City for commerce.
The noble families living in the town created around 72 sky-high towers to show off their great wealth and power to their enemies. However, only 14 towers could survive up to the current age. [...]

3 Reasons This American Will Never Leave Italy

3 Reasons This American Will Never Leave Italy | Travel | Scoop.it
The title is probably an exaggeration. I most likely will live in the United States again. Statistically, very few expats live out their lives in a foreign country. Most, eventually, find their way back to the land of their birth. So let me just say that these are the top three reasons that I can't imagine leaving Italy... today.

Mariano Pallottini's curator insight, January 29, 2014 4:20 PM

Here is a summary of the article

#1. Coffee. Coffee is not just a drink in Italy....it is a work of art.
Starbucks may have 17,000 stores throughout the world, but Italy does not have a single one. A barista will make your espresso, simply called a caffe`, with the precision of a skilled craftsman.

#2. Emotion. There is just so much of it. Passionate, kissing couples are everywhere, while the rest of the traffic just walks around them. Life seems to be lived fully in the present, engaged and emotional. It's raw, real and refreshing.

#3. La Bella Figura. Constantly aware of aesthetic beauty, confident and manicured, they are a walking advertisement for the good life. But there are rules to be followed in creating the good impression that go beyond how one is dressed.

Alessandro Di Emidio's curator insight, January 30, 2014 5:59 AM

Italy is a state of mind! L'attrattività turistica parte dalle ricchezze immateriali, dall'italian way of life, dall'esperienza che solo in Italia è possibile vivere. Nel bene e nel male. L'Italia è un marchio, uno status, prima ancora che un paese, un luogo, una località. Pizza, prima ancora che un piatto da gustare, è un concetto.
