I’m from Malta, hence very close to Italy. Pimpdidi, I can assure you that Italy can be very hot as well. If you want some nice warm weather, while eating a delicious pizza and some ‘gelato’, then I would suggest that you visit Italy in Summer! 🙂
I’m in Italy right now! At a summer school in Urbino, but whilst I’ve been here I’ve visited Verona, Bologna and Firenze too 🙂
I’m coming back to Italy for a conference in Ferrara in about a week and a half too!
Haha, some but more on an appearance/artistic note; serpentinites are very pretty. I think minerals that they are composed of are far more interesting. My favourite mineral is called kyanite – its light blue.
I don’t like keep a pet rock or anything that would be strange (and slightly worrying too…)
