When you think of Italy, do you visualize the art of Michelangelo, Raphael, Leonardo da Vinci, Titian, Giotto, Cellini? Or think of the literature of Dante, Boccaccio, Petrarch, Machiavelli, Pirandello, and Ariosto? Do you hear the music of Verdi, Puccini, Rossini, Mascagni, Leoncavallo, Donizetti, Respighi, Palestrina, Gian Carlo Menotti? That's not surprising. According to UNESCO, more than 60% of the world's art treasures are found in Italy.
Or, do you think of Italy in the company of the G8? As a member of the European Union since its beginnings, Italy is one of the most vocal advocates and leaders of the new dynamic Europe.
