• Italy is the world’s seventh largest economy in terms of gross domestic product.
• On a map, Italy appears as a boot (the mainland) kicking a soccer ball (Sicily).
• Italians eat hundreds of different types of pasta. They like their pasta al dente ( firm “to the tooth”), not scotta (“badly cooked”).
• The Italian word ciao (pronounced CHOW) means not only “goodbye” but also “hello.” It originally comes from the Venetian dialect word for “slave.” So when Italians say “hello” and “goodbye,” they are in effect saying, “I am your slave!”
