“Only in Italy” is not just an expression, it is a great website (www.OnlyInItaly.com). The site features a combination of news and cultural observations. Articles today include “Why are more Italians convinced going to college is as useful as shaving goats?”, “Being a good Catholic doesn’t mean breeding like rabbits”, and “Why Naples sends gays running for cover”. They also sell things like Italian oregano and Sicilian cookies. Dai un’occhiata!
