    Just go visit Switzerland. It's got both Italians and Germans, and it's their home country at the same time

    Wow! No kidding? Jeesh, I would have thought just the opposite. Well thank-you all for the good advice. Let me say I am going on holiday to do more than just get drunk and chase skirts. I was just trying to be humourous when I brought this topic up in the first place. Sometimes I wonder if many people on this web site have ever developed a sense of humour in their life. A lot of guys posting here seem to be downright angry at the world. Then again, an Anglo-Saxon's idea of humour is totally different from what most non-English speaking peoples find funny. English people lash out and say flippant things about lofty subjects that other people would take highly serious, and try to turn them on their ear for the sake of irony and sarcasm. A lot of people around the world find that sort of behaviour silly, disrespectful, and immature but we English (and Americans) think knocking pompous and pretentious notions down to size as being both liberating and hilarious.

    Anyway, I'm still undecided on which place to go to. I might do both, I guess, but that would be time consuming, and I wouldn't be able to stay long enough in either place to get the feel for them. I plan on going in the summer, and I know it gets pretty damned hot in Italy in the summer, but climates and landscapes don't interest me. What I want to know more about is the national charachter. Are Germans really as hyper-organised, pushy, arrogant, domineering, loud, and fat as the stereotypes claim? Are Italians really that overly emotional, superficial, tacky, materialistic, cheap, crooked, selfish, and sex crazed as some people say? Are most German women fond of donning leather trousers, chains and whips, all while getting blind drunk on beer and schnaps? Are Italian women bound up and forced to stay indoors by domineering fathers until their wedding day?

    I've often heard that German women can be friendly--especially if you are a Negro American soldier--to foreign men, but the further north you go in Germany, supposedly the less friendlier the people. I've also heard that Italian women exude sexuality in their skimpy clothes and alluring smiles, but at the same time I understand that Italians are the least likely people in all of Western Europe to speak English. This really surprises me when you take into account over the last 100 years, the vast amount of Italian immigration to English speaking places like New Jersey/New York, Toronto, and London.

    Any thoughts?

    Are Italians really that:

    overly emotional?
    We've been accused of this yes, I guess it could be true. I've accused Germans of being under emotional.
    superficial?
    uff... "fare la bella figura" is very important in modern Italy.
    tacky?
    Depends
    materialistic?
    Yeah, thanks to americanisation
    cheap?
    I've never heard this one... it depends i guess
    crooked?
    80% of the criminals are immigrants.
    selfish?
    Less in the general population, more apparent in the business and political leaders.
    and sex crazed?
    uhm... W LA FIGA E CHI LA CASTIGA !!!
