Recently I had the amazing opportunity to study abroad. I absolutely fell in love with the Turin, Italy. I adore the culture and way of life. Coming back home after three weeks was exciting and depressing all at the same time. Exciting, because of seeing the people I missed and returning to…
Thanks to you too, I’m totally with you about italian food: I’m pretty sure we have the best cooking all over the world, same for culture and the beauty of our cities and landscape but I disagree with you about animals. I adore dogs and cats and most of all kind of animals but here in Italy you can find lots of people who love animals and lots who really hate them. Every year we have the horrible record of abandoned dogs (and cats) approaching summer holidays; one of my lovely dogs died from poisoned meatball made from those (always cowardly anonymous) who hate dogs.
We’re fighting for decades against animals vivisection and even now many women love to wear furs forgottin’ the massacre of poor animals to made them. Not startin to talk about the municipal kennels and catteries , they are a real shame and the private ones barely manage to survive thanks to the donations of individuals and the hard work of our brave volunteers.
Here we use to say that a country’s civilization is measured by how animals are treated, well I regret to say that Italy is a country that is not really that civil. Sorry if I was too longwinded and for my bad english!
