Why do people want to speak Italian?
Here we are with a very interesting question!
I am Italian so my first answer would be “Non lo so! Non ne ho idea!” “I don’t know! I haven’t a clue!” With English it will be easier to answer: English is the language of the future, it is the language of the world, business and success, English it is, not Italian. You need English if you want to get a job.
Hang on… Aspetta un minuto…
yes this is exactly the point: you need English but you fall in love with Italian. I am just trying to guess here as davvero, non lo so! So let’s try: People want to speak Italian because they simply like it. They go on holiday to
la città di Leonardo, Raffaello, Michelangelo, Botticelli
la città della torre pendente
ah Napoli with its beautiful Gulf!
They go to holiday in Italy and
It is love at first sight!
E’ amore a prima vista!
