While I learned that as an overthinker who flies by the seat of his pants when travelling, I may relate more to Italians than Americans, I think that’s about all I learned. La testa degli italiani by Beppe Severgnini.

Rhonda Lind rated it it was amazing Sep 12, Very funny severhnini informative.

Severgnini does and in-depth, self-deprecating, witty and humorous study of the Italian way of seeing the world; not much different than other Latin countries, really.

Read a couple of chapters and skimmed the rest. I really wanted to like this book, but I think it was too similar to Ciao America. So what would make me want to read a book about a place I am already in love with despite the quite al obvious reason that I am already in love with it?
