What was my favorite thing about Italy? It’s impossible to narrow it down. It definitely has to do with their culture overall, more specifically their values. They are not looking for ways to cut corners. It comes across in their friendly gestures, the amazing food, the quality of their produce, the beautiful architecture, their traditions, and ceremonies—even the cleanliness of their public restrooms (I know, it’s ridiculous, but it was noticeable and worth mentioning). Did I mention gelato? This is the beginning stages of a very large collection of work that will reflect on my love of Italy.
