"The Italians know that everything in their country is ... imbued with their spirit. They know that there is no need, really, to distinguish or to choose between the smile on the face of a cameriere and Donatello's "San Giorgio" ... They are all works of art, the 'great art of being happy' and of making other people happy, an art which embraces and inspires all others in Italy, the only art worth learning, but which can never really be mastered...


...the art of inhabiting the Earth."

Luigi Barzini, The Italians
