On March 17th, 1861 the unification of Italy was declared.
My beautiful country is 150 years old! :)
But (I'm sure you agree with me) its culturale heritage has older roots, as you can clearly perceive by knowing our traditions, history, monuments and craft.
To explain myself better, let me quote some words of this Etsy Italy team blog post:
"We are here, united from North to South by a great past, a wonderful climate, a unique kind of vegetation and marvellous sceneries, by a common language rich in itself and also enriched by so many different dialectics, by a sunny and effervescent creativity in all fields, by a strong practical spirit and will to open up to others and, finally, by a huge cultural heritage."
Yes, I agree. Totally.
If you are italian (or you are not, but you love this country) and you want to celebrate Italy's birthday with me, follow Etsy Italia Team from today to 17/03. We are working on a lot of funny surprises!
