I haven't really quite figured out why they have so much halloween stuff in Italy.
They don't trick or treat.
But in Florence there are 35 American university's with study abroad programs, so that is a good reason for a toga party!
There is so much Americanisms now here.. not all good.
Being at the Salone del Gusto in Torino, talking about preserving traditions and at the same time seeing the halloween invading the shops... I was puzzled.
I hope some Italian slow food and slow life also invades the states!
That would be a real TREAT!
Treat yourself to some Dolce Vita... the sweet life... by taking time for yourself.. and go for quality.. not quantity.. you deserve it.
