☻The ability to speak English confers prestige in Italy, and there's often no shortage of people willing to show off their knowledge, particularly returned emigrati. However, even in the main cities and resorts you'll need to use at least some Italian, and in more remote areas you may well find no one speaks English at all.
Even if Italy's architecture has not been so consistently influential as its painting and sculpture, the country still boasts a remarkable legacy of historic buildings, an almost unbroken tradition stretching back over more than 2500 years. As in the other arts, strong regional distinctions are evident in most of the main architectural periods.
☻Although it has long been popular primarily for its cheapness and convenience, Italian food occupies a revered place as one of the world's great cuisines. The southern Italian diet especially, with its emphasis on olive oil, fresh and plentiful fruit, vegetables and fish, is one of the healthiest in Europe, and there are few national cuisines that can boast so much variety in both ingredients and cooking methods. Italy's wines, too, are among the finest and most diverse in Europe and the international image of cheap fizz and rough reds is long out of date. (pasta, pizza, wines, desserts, coffee and so much more).
☻The sirocco, the hot and humid African wind that affects regions south of Rome, produces at least a couple of stiflingly hot weeks in summer.
When to start feeding baby veggies or fruits?
Health experts and breastfeeding experts agree that it's best to wait until your baby is around six months old before offering solid foods. There has been a large amount of research on this in the recent past, and most health organizations have updated their recommendations to agree with current research. Unfortunately, many health care providers are not up to date in what they're telling parents, and many, many books are not up to date.
The following organizations recommend that all babies be exclusively breastfed (no cereal, juice or any other foods) for the first 6 months of life (not the first 4-6 months):
World Health Organization
US Department of Health & Human Services
American Academy of Pediatrics
American Academy of Family Physicians
American Dietetic Association
Australian National Health and Medical Research Council
Royal Australian College of General Practitioners
Most babies will become developmentally and physiologically ready to eat solids by 6-9 months of age. For some babies, delaying solids longer than six months can be a good thing; for example, some doctors may recommend delaying solids for 12 months if there is a family history of allergies.
