1. You may become more fashionable than many of your friends and they may get jealous of your fashion sense!
Italy has a lot to offer like Verona, the city of Romeo and Juliet or Milan- a major world fashion and design capital. Even if you don’t go to any fashion shows or the annual Salone del Mobile in Milano, you can still soak in the easy but fabulous style of the Italians around you. That’s awesome!
2.You may not think that Hogwarts was hypothetical anymore!
You always fantasized about studying at schools like Hogwarts that had hundreds of years of excellence in wizardry and simply take a broom or a thestral and just fly in?
Well, you cannot study wizardry in Italy, but if you are interested in engineering or architecture, universities such as The University of Bologna, founded in 1088, claims to be the first university and is the oldest in the modern world.
It was the first place of study to use the term universitas for the corporations of students and Masters which came to define the institution, located in Bologna, Italy. As of 2013, the University’s crest carries the motto Alma mater studiorum and the date A.D. 1088. The University has about 85,500 students in its 11 schools.
3.Your taste buds may get addicted to the world’s best cuisine and you may never be able to forget the Italian pizza!
ITALIAN coffee is awesome. I was not quite a big fan of coffee and I could not eat even more than one slice of pizza until I came to Italy. The morning I reached Rome, I saw a tiny hole-in-the-wall pizzeria where there was a guy slinging disks of dough in the air and another manning the wood fired oven. The pizza was a Margherita. It was freaking amazing. Just a simple tomato sauce, some quality mozzarella (the first time I ever tasted real mozzarella) and a few fresh basil leaves. And cheap to boot. It was the first time I realized that more isn’t always better. That quality beats quantity every time, especially when it comes to pizzas (and their toppings).
4.You may become a Perfectionist and may not compromise with anything less than perfect ever after!
Fashion meets Technology here. Italy is famous for being a wonderful country and for the good food. But it also builds amazing products mixing design, fashion, beauty, technology and materials. Italian industrial heritage brings to life top entrepreneurs that built products that are still today at the forefront of design, materials, mechanics and user experience.
Of course, Italy remains a major industrial country, with manufacturing in Europe, second only to Germany, as one of the most thriving economic sectors.
5.You would not be a Starbucks fan anymore!
Espresso! And caffè macchiato, latte macchiato, caffè lungo, caffè corretto, cappuccino, marocchino, orzo in tazza grande, cioccolata, decaffeinato, whatever you like!
6.You would need to take a bunch of extra batteries for your camera every time you travel!
Did you know that Italy has more World Heritage Sites than any other country on earth? (And Studyportals has more information about study abroad than any other website too!) Italy has 47 UNESCO World Heritage sites; a mark of the cultural and geographic richness of the nation. Italy represents around 5% of the World Heritage list for you to capture in your camera and your soul. If you are in Italy, you could spend months picking them off one by one.
7.You would become too perfect in the language of Romance!
I love the sound of the melodic Italian language.The reason may be because Italian is one of the four Most Romantic languages of the world alongwith French, Spanish, Portuguese, Romanian, Catalan. Also, you will get to find out what all those different hand gestures mean that the Italians use while speaking.
8.You might fall in love with soccer if you don’t love it already!
I can see a bunch of boys between the ages of 15-25 playing soccer every evening in a soccer ground in front of my flat and nothing is more relaxing than seeing them playing live with a bucket of popcorn. Also,there are so many great teams in the Serie A league to cheer for: Milan, Inter, Roma, Lazio, Juventus, Fiorentina…and you can also shop at the original Juventus stores in Turin.
9.You may get used to see beautiful landscapes, small city cars and Vintage scooters all around!
Small city cars and scooters are all over Italy! Vespas, Ape Piaggios, Fiat 500s, Minis, Smarts… And the vintage models are the best to spot! You can take a drive when you’re studying abroad. Not to forget super-sleek and fast sports cars. Italy is home to Ferrari, Lamborghini, Maserati, Alfa Romeo, Abarth and Ducati motorcycles.
10.You would have already done one of the things every person must do in his/her life-Visit Italy.!
