1. For their adorable cars.
2. For making men's scarves very cool.
We can thank many for this, but the Italians definitely led the way.
3. For pizza.
Because it is REALLY important.
4. For their breathtaking architecture.
Italians definitely do not take their domes or flying buttresses lightly.
5. For encouraging a glass of wine and cheese plate around 4 p.m.
Apperitivo? Don't mind if we do.
6. For showing us the importance of living near your family.
7. For the Renaissance.
(Good work, guyz.)
8. For making long lunches perfectly acceptable.
9. For spaghetti alla carbonara.
Because Italians are geniuses for just mixing pancetta, cheese, and egg yolks.
