Because Italy is more than a geographic expression..

I've always detected an interesting attraction and affinity held between Italy and Germany: two great artistic societies who found ways to transfer their craftsmanship into modern industrial design. It's a strange cultural partnership indeed but one that is defined and bound by history. I'll let Man of Roma take it from here with two posts: Pleasure in Craft. The Germans and Roman Limes. Between Two Worlds.

  1. Thanks for linking to my two posts. Of course this attraction has components of repulsion as well. This often happens between neighbours.

    Best regards,
