Do Europeans Live Better Than Americans?
Italians enjoy life, plain and simple. This is evident with the tradition of riposo - a period each afternoon when shops and offices close for a few hours. From 1pm to 4pm, employees are free to eat a big lunch, socialize, and take a restful nap afterward.
The Italian ritual of passeggiata is another wonderful tradition. Each evening, as the sun begins to lower, families take a stroll through the main streets of town. Italians dress up for this ritual, as it's common for older residents to people-watch and gossip. Passeggiata is particularly popular on Sunday evenings.
