Italians And Russians

Italian and Russian stereotypes are the two most impressive groups of the world. Although, the American stereotype is dominating over both of these stereotypes still nowadays these stereotypes are highly preferred by people who want to get well cultured partner or call girls-
Below are some key features of the Italian culture

Italian stereotype

The first and the most important thing about the Italian stereotype is that these people prefer family over everything. They never avoid sparing nice time with the family. On other hand, they want to spend leisure with the partner of opposite sex for passion, drama, theatre and romance. They praise beauty and beautiful figure. Loyalty for home town is the utmost feature they possess. Although Italy has higher number of divorces but almost all married and family owned people give sufficient time to the family.

Russian stereotype

The first important thing to know about Russians is that they love their country and countrymen very much still some common things within all Russian people cannot be ignored if one is looking a partner within them. Most of the Russian people are alcoholic and suspicious. They cannot be expected for being vegetarian. Another shocking point about their attitude is that they often give too many advices even if you don’t want so. Like Italy people, Russians are not that much music lover to develop good rock and pop music. Overall these people are thought to be conservative and narrow minded. They are very traditional and even believe on wicked powers and fear to be around black people.

Shopping in Italy

I dreamt about shopping in Italy: luxurious shoes and top brands, attractive and sexy dress, watches and perfumes! Moreover, sales..sales..sales!

So, before going to Italy for shopping I made huge resource and find out the best places, which I want to visits: molls, outlets and local shops. My trip was just 2 days shopping tour – so I got not too much time.
Day first: I come to Fiumicino airport. Cannot say that I like this airport too much: very expensive costs for brand clothes like HUGO BOSS; not great service of Italian staff people in cafes – even rather bad espresso – for me it is terrible for Italy – shame; always mobs of people near password control. I booked a car near Fiumicino, used eurocar – I like this company and always booked cars all over the globe using it. Nice people working in this company all over the world, reasonable price for cars + insurance. What more can you desire? Only good way to first shopping center.6

My first shopping center – was Castel Romano, it is designer outlet near Rome – about 25 km. Way was easy, road great, music on radio fantastic. Castel Romano – advantages and disadvantages of this outlet. 1 – if you want to have quality clothes – yes you will find it there, but no relevant sizes of most items, clothes with spoilage: I was in a hurry to buy more clothes for all members of my family and did not pay attention of rejects in many, really many clothes. See examples: spots in baby Adidas costumes (which cannot be moved) – I paid for it 18 euro, patch in Adidas child shoes for 22 euro, no one stone in MK watch – 150 euro, out-of-the-way hole in female Guess trousers for 48 euro, Guess evening dress with small hole, which I surely didn’t see for 98 euro, fantastic Valentino cloak without button – 520 euro. I was happy with shopping on the moment of shopping, but when I come back – I felt depressed with all rejects. So, pay more attention in choosing clothes on spoilage – remember you will not have possibility to take them back.

My second shopping day I spend in local Rome shops – buying unknown but very interesting brand clothes and went to PIAZZA DI SPAGNA. I really liked Rome local clothes shops: fantastic design – cheap price: t-shirt – 8-10 euro, dress – 20-60 euro, trousers – 12-50 euro, bags from 2 euro even! Moreover, luxurious bijouterie and costume jewellery from 15 euro. Really fantas7tic! PIAZZA DI SPAGNA very big street with luxurious, top brand shops. Costs are magnificent, but I was planning to buy something there – so prepare 1000 euro for it. What I was able to buy at PIAZZA DI SPAGNA shops (expensive prices I saw only coming to Russia)  for 1000 euro: Baldinini shoes or Dolce & Gabbana new season jeans, Fausto Santini leather bag or Frette colorful chair, Giorgio Armani dress or many accessories in La Coppola Storta (was so many – so I cannot choose even one – did not buy anything). I did not buy these things which I mentioned – because my salary in 1000 euro per month and I understand what is money and how much should I work for Dolce & Gabbana new season jeans, so I went to MAC cosmetics shop and got some good quality lipsticks and powder for me and my best friend: total sum: 120 euro. I was very happy and my friend as well.
So, this is my 2 days shopping trip to Rome. Next time I am planning to go in winter and explore more new shops, shopping centers and outlets and surely will share with you my opinion about shopping in Italy.
