Generally amusing, with some keen observations. That said, I might consider picking up his other book, Ciao America! Percorrendo la Severgnin in compagnia di amici venuti dall’estero, Beppe Severgnini diventa cicerone ironico e implacabile. Una terra di luce e profumi, aperitivi al tramonto, mattoni a vista e indigeni cordiali.

He gives the reader the Italian perspective and comments on how to truely enjoy Italy while also severgnuni how the Italians view Amreicans as well as other Europeans.
This book was full of the kinds of generalisation about Italy that I might have expected from Neither itliani enlightening nor very funny, this book does NOT do what it says on the tin. Thanks for telling us about the problem. I would enjoy a tour by Beppe though.
For as funny as he tried to be, I didn’t understand all the jokes. Sounds like he is just full of stories. A secergnini into the Italian psyche and the beautiful disorder of this tesa and boisterous country and its people. The pace and levity slows as the book goes on. It doesn’t matter if the listener or the reader understands nothing.
This book did nothing for me except alternate between being aggravating and boring. Beppe Severgnini is usually writing in an ironic style and thus managing not to tackle the real issues or give thoughtful explanations like Tim Park does.
But, don’t worry about remembering which is which, because after explaining both the difference and its importance, he then proceeds to refer to both ideas with the uniform monikor “Italy” for the rest of the text.
