This blog won’t be only a travel blog specialized on Southern Italy. It won’t be just a language learning blog. But it will be all of these things. It will be also a food blog with a lot of regional Italian recipes. It will talk about traditions, popular dance and folklore. The main theme of my posts will be Southern Italy and its complicated and fascinating culture.
WHY YOU NEED TO READ IT
I’m writing The Italian Midday blog to empower Southern Italy to show its great beauty, to convince people, culture of South is worthy to be known. So if you are interested in reading attractive information about Naples or Calabria, or you want to know something more about Sicilian food or Salentinian “Pizzica” and more, you are in the right place. Moreover, Italian language occupies a special place to offer you a basic travel kit.
SOMETHING ABOUT THE BLOGGER (THAT IS ME!)
My name is Emanuela, but my family and my friends call me Emi (pronounced like Amy). I'm a journalist and an Italian teacher for foreigners based in Palmi, a little town in Calabria, at the toe of the boot. I’ve got a very simple life philosophy. I’ve a keen interest in multiculturalism and I find learning otherlanguage very important. Quoting Simon Fairbairn & Erin McNeaney: “The best way to dig deeper into a culture and get to know its people is by learning the language”. I’m a fan of slow travel and I believe that people can really understand Southern Way of Life only with a very slow journey but if you can’t wait I offer you my tried-and-true way to enjoy it. If you want to know something more about me read my manifesto or click here.
In conclusion, I think we should make a deal. I'll give you a lot of information about Italy using English but I'll ask you not to be too meticulous. If you find some mistakes, please tell me. All things considered, English is my second language and I want to learn!
