"You may have the universe if I may have Italy” Guisseppi Verdi

"What is the fatal charm of Italy? What do we find there that can be found nowhere else? I believe it is a certain permission to be human, which other places, other countries, lost long ago." --Erica Jong

"For us to go to Italy and to penetrate into Italy is like a most fascinating act of self-discovery â€" back, back down the old ways of time. Strange and wonderful chords awake in us, and vibrate again after many hundreds of years of complete forgetfulness." --D.H. Lawrence
