I was born in Milan and I live in the European Union. Through Latin and Greek I’ve learned to think, through English I’ve learned to work. Where is my so called Italian identity? My identity belongs to Europe, it is rooted in my regional territory and it is not linked to a supposed Italian culture, wich doesn’t exist: Italy is more a geographical doodle than a cultural fact. There is no trace of any “Italian cuisine” (Italian recipes are regional) and millions of people speak beautiful and unintelligible dialects rather than the official language. As a recognizable unity, Italy is very young and Europe is very old. Of course, the borders of Europe are questionables, but borders always are. Italy’s border are not disputed any more, because they are entirely artificial.
