FAQ & Pursuing The Mission
What is the mission of the present blog?
Please visit the following page of “In Italy in Love” to read about it.
Why do I think I am the right person to do this?
In all modesty, my education profile (I’ve got two Master’s degrees, both with Hons, in Social Sciences and International Communication) and real-world life experiences enable me to precisely observe and correctly analyze different life situations. Especially, people and their attitudes. In order to get in-depth understanding of their national mentality. Without ever forgeting that each local and regional mentality has its own shades.
Am I helped by other people to make up this blog?
Of course. In this human world everything is done by people and for people. So, behind me there are other persons who helped me to develop the idea of current spiritual investigation. As well as there are my Italian friends and other Italian persons who day after day continue to contribute enormously to my research by sharing their points of view and convictions. Hence “people” is one of the keywords of this research: it’s done by people and for people. It’s people I am so thankful for everything!
How do I conduct my research?
Please read about it on the page of this blog dedicated to methods.
Am I reliable?
Well, that’s up to you to decide. Yet, if you want my honest opinion: absolutely yes! Otherwise, I woudn’t mind to write and share.
In addition, I am open to every discussion that can cast more light on any topic or life sitation. Looking forward to asking your questions! Don’t hesitate to contact me.
What my benefits are?
I live, I enjoy (or not), I observe, I analize, I potray. If people enjoy my work, find my observation interesting and my potrayal of modern Italian society useful, I benefit.
If some people don’t like the work I’ve been doing here, yet I benefit. Since I do what I like: I live, I enjoy (or not), I observe, I analize, I potray. As Socrates said: “The unexamined life is not worth living.”
So, I examine and I share. As much as I’ve seen and learned with my contemporaries. People from all aver the world. So, if they do appreciate my work, I benefit twice.
Why my insight is independent and influence-resistant?
Being non-native, my insight is disconnected form Italian root mentality. This gives me an advantage to experience the Italian way of living on tabula rasa, i.e. without expectations reaffirmed by congenital mentality in subconscious of native Italians.
A general example (suitable to every national mentality) may be useful here… Let’s admit Italian people do certain things in a proper Italian way. And whilst to the people from the other nations the Italian way to deal with certain things in a certain way may appear strange and weird, it results absolutely normal to Italians. Do you see my point?
In addition, the fact that I’ve been living in Italy for over 12 years already, permits me to analyze and portray the Italian way of thinking without any kind of prejudice.
P.S. Must admit, however, that my own way of thinking has been somewhat affected (since highly involved) and enriched with nowadays variety of Italian standards, on one side. As well as with profound learning and understanding of Italian traditions, culture and mentality, on the other.
What my personal interest is?
My personal interest and my deepest curiosity is to find out how do Italian culture, Italian style, and Italian cult of enjoying the life with all its allures (no matter what!) connect. As well as, how they affect the inner world of Non-Italians. Is Italian way of living contagious? Do people really change their way of being after visiting Italy? Yes. How? Just like me.
“In Italy in Love”… Why “in Love”?
- First, nothing as Love can disclose the human’s nature.
- Second, Love it’s the most euphoric feeling and it has a lot of related emotions, such as: jealous, hate, friendship, ecc.
- Third, Love’s origins may vary. And hence shades of Love may differ significantly. For instance, there is romantic love, passionate love, secret love, forbidden love. Then there is sexual, erotic or physical love. Love can be shared and mutual, or hopeless and unrequited. As well as, all-consuming, immense, profound, overwhelming or tender and genuine. Love can be everlasting or free, first or last. Not to mention platonic love, brotherly love, familial love or marital love. And all these are different kinds of love, don’t you agree?
- Fourth, all people need love, inspite of their age, occupation or sexual prefererncies. And in Italy people are always in love – whether they are natives or tourists, single or happily married.
