Nobody knows if Italy will become the next Greece but here I will tell you why I think that Italy won’t be the next Greece:
FIRST REASON: THE ITALIAN PEOPLE
I do not know many Italian people but the few ones I know they are responsible people and I have a lot of trust in them. In Barcelona we have a little Italian community. They are people who bring to Barcelona modernity and fashion. I am sure that acountry with people like them will do all they can to find a solution.
SECOND REASON: THE FRIENDS OF ITALY
Italy has one thing that makes a lot of people to like Italy: its language, its culture and its food. Italians are not alone in Italy left to its own devices. They have a lot of friends around Europe and around the planet. Scorsese and Italian community in New York I am sure that will help Italy all they can.
THIRD REASON: LADY GAGA
The most famous singer nowadays has her family roots in Italy. I cannot imagine Italy falling and Lady Gaga not using her influence to avoid that.
FOUR REASON: THE ROMAN EMPIRE
In Buenos Aires they speak Spanish. But a Spanish that sounds like Italian. Italians went to Argentina and they mixed with people from Spain and othe rcountries. Spanish or Italian, both languages come from Latin, so from Rome!
Even THE.CAT is related to .cat. .CAT is a domain related to the Catalan language. The Catalan language is a dialect of Latin! Nicolas Sarkozy when he speaks in French he is speaking a dialect of Latin! The Roman empire even reach Londinium and some cities now in Morocco, etc. Even the Catholics around the world have its capital related to Rome: in The Vatican.
FIFTH REASON: TOSCA
Once country that has given us jewels like TOSCA cannot be let go to its own devices.
SIXTH REASON: ITALY IS CLOSE TO GERMANY AND FRANCE.
We all know that the northern part of Italy is much related to France and Germany than the rest. This sometimes brings friction bewtween the different parts of Italy but it can be also a good thing to put Italy back on track.
SEVENTH REASON: EMERGING BRAZIL SPEAKS A LANGUAGE THAT COMES FORM LATIN, SO FROM ROME.
Sometimes I wish that Portugal could be helped from Brazil. I wonder if they would help Italy too. After all we understand each other. If you speak slowly Italain or Portuguese you can understand a bit. Something that does not happen with other languages.
In brief, Italy is too important to fall! It has too many friends to fall! It is unthinkable that millions of people around the world could continue eating pizza while they do not care about the future of Italy.
So, if Italy is the problem of Europe, I think we can relax. We all know that even if Italy has a huge debt its wealth is much bigger than its debt. If I have to choose between having a piece of Venice of having a whole continent I would prefer Venice. With this I think it is obvious that Italy debt can only be a worry for those who do not know Italy. Italy must be one of the few countries that seems just a kind of open museum. If Italy owes so much money is because people who lend the money know the real value of Italy.
If beings from mars came to buy a country I have the feeling that Italy would be one of the most expensive places to buy: it is beautiful, it has a unique shape, it is an open museum, their people speak one of the sweetest languages of the world and las tbut not least, Raffaela Carra was born there
