I want to share a description of Italy that all of you Italophiles will certainly be able to relate to. It was written by Francesco Bucci, one of the owners of Papplecco Gelateria in San Diego. When I first read it, I was struck by the fact that Francesco, a native of Pisa, completely understands how most of us stranieri (foreigners) feel when we step down on Italian soil. I’ve tried to describe it to friends who haven’t been there, but his explanation says it better than I ever could. Read what Francesco has written and when you’ve finished head on to down to Pappalecco for an authentic Italian experience-coffee, gelato and more. Chances are you’ll be seated next to someone speaking Italian.
