Sorry for the commenting again. However, Italians are known to be "open hearted and hospital", but it's not often the case.
I would know, I'm Italian...and I know my people. Nice, cordial...hospital, yes...but too many times only when convenient or "it is what you have to do".
Plus they just think their better than everyone else (apart from the godlike Americans), especially people from eastern regions..
P.S I don't mean to s**t on my country people , it's just...they're the hypocritical ones (not everyone..but..you know what I mean)
