#100ItalyFacts on Instagram, days 28-34

Here we are with our usual Sunday appointment!

This week I have decided to focus on:

  • A social phenomenon called “the brains’escape “, characterized by the migration of young Italians to other countries, which has hit an all-time record this year;
  • Cool TV personalities;
  • Politics (or the mockery of Italian politicians, if you want);
  • Some gorgeous monuments.

I hope you enjoy! 😘

#100ItalyFacts [day28]: Italian Prime Ministers are regularly nicknamed by members of the opponent parties, media and common people. Romano Prodi, for example, was "the baloney" πŸ–(yeah, the sliced meat); Giulio Andreotti, as you already know if you are a Sorrentino's fan, was "Il Divo", but he was also known as "Beelzebub" or "the Black Pope"😈 The one who detains the record of nicknames, though, is Silvio Berlusconi, who is: βœ” "the Knight" ( because he is a knight of the Order of Merit for Labour); βœ” "the psycho-dwarf"; βœ” "the evil dwarf"; βœ” "the bold dwarf"; βœ” "papi"; βœ” "Him"; βœ” "burlesquoni"; βœ” "the cayman"; And so on…πŸ€‘ #italy #politics #italianpolitics #nickname #funnyfacts #graffiti #streetart #italians #street #streets #italianstreet #alley #blackandwhite #blackandwhitephotography #blackandwhitephoto #travel #travelgram #walking #blog #blogger #travelblogger #travelblog #art #exploremore #walkingtour #tour

#100ItalyFacts [day29] (picture from my flickr account): in 2015, after decades, the number of Italian emigrants surpassed the number of immigrants who had arrived in the BelpaeseπŸ›„. Since the cost-of-living is quite high, lots of retired people choose to emigrate to countries like Portugal or Tunisia, where they can easily sustain themselves with their pensions. πŸ‘΄πŸ‘΅ The big problem is the emigration of young people, though. Lots of sociologists have stated that "Italy is a country that hates youngsters" and journalist Beppe Severgnini, when talking about the work situation, has defined the older Italians as the "python generation", indicating with this term their will to stay attached to their seats and not give young people an opportunity. Sadly, young people are always depicted through the media as immature and "mammoni": truth is they have to deal with exploitment and underpaid and temporary employment. Most of the time leaving the motherland is the only solution. πŸ€“βœˆπŸ›„ #italy #leaving #emigrate #emigration #migration #italians #italianpeople #society #life #italiansociety #blogger #blog #italianblogger #travelblog #travelblogger #travel #travelgram #instatravel #explore #exploremore #young #instatrip #traveling

#100ItalyFacts [day30]: last night I had the chance to attend an Alberto Angela's lesson and I would like to dedicate to him and his family this entry. ❀ Alberto's father Piero was the first scientific populariser of the Italian television and his son soon followed in his footsteps . They use a simple and funny language which has been fundamental in contributing to the public understanding of science. They are literally worshipped by Italian people and Alberto's programme "Ulisse" is basically the only scientific TV programme in the world to be broadcasted on Saturday nights. Long live the Angelas.❀😍 #italy #italians #italianculture #albertoangela #science #blogging #blog #blogger #italiantv #inspiration #inspirational #italianpeople #inspirationalpeople #people #lesson #conference #italian
