The speciality of Italy is food with much herbs. Also pizza is made in Italy. That’s why you always put Italian herbs on a pizza. And pepper is also very popular in Italy. When you going to eat in Italy there’s always some pepper spray on the table. Pasta comes out of Italy too. In Italy are most of the times brick kilns. I like that because it’s really old. Italy is also known by the high chefs hats. When you was a little child you probably made these. When you think of an Italian chef you think most of the time also about a moustache.The terraces are always homy.

Also, the fashion magazine Vogue Italia, is considered one of the most prestigious fashion magazines in the world.

The country has produced some well known furniture designers, such as Gio Ponti and Ettore Sottsass and Italian phrases such as “Bel Disegno”and “Linea Italiana” have entered the vocabulary of furniture design. Examples of classic pieces of Italian white goods and pieces of furniture included Zanussi’s washing machines and fridges, the new tone sofas by Antrium and the post modern bookcase by Ettore Sottsass, inspired by Bob Dylan’s song “Stuck Inside Mobile with the Memphis Blues Again”.
The Italian state runs a universal public healthcare system since 1978. However, healthcare is provided to all citizens and residents by a mixed public-private system. The public part is Servizio Sanitario Nazionale, which is organised under the ministry of health and spending in Italy accounted for 9,2% of the national GDP in 2012, very close the OECD countries’ average of 9,3%. Italy is in 2000 ranked as having world’s 2nd best healthcare system, and world’s 2nd best healthcare performance. Life expectancy in Italy is 80 for males and 85 for females, placing the country 6th in the world for life expectancy. In comparison to other Western countries, Italy has a relatively low rate of adult obesity (below 10%), probably thanks to the health benefits of the mediterranean diet.
