  1. LONG LIVE THE MIGHTY ROMAN EMPIRE !!!! IT SHALL RISE ONCE AGAIN FROM THE ASHES OF THE DESTRUCTION OF THE WEST , FOR IT TO BE MORE POWERFUL ! MORE MIGHTY ! MORE SPLENDID !! MOREE MAGNIFICIIENTT !!!! LONG LIVE THE WEST !!!

  2. Italy seems split, it seems that a couple of nobles are with England, others are with the USA, others are with Germany, etc., the same Vatican that could do a lot for Italy, preaches poverty but sails in gold, let's go what they want are illiterate slaves,
    and we also see it in their intentions, they make graduates run away but they import unprepared immigrants, this means that the elite is the weak point of Italy.

  3. This is inaccurate. The large majority of the Italians are satisfied of living in a unified country, despite our allegedly strong regional differences. The real challenge is to unify the country from an economic point of view, which is something that will probably never happen.


  4. Sintesi: Vocetta suadente espone ultrarapida sintesi della storia di Italia e alla fine sputa sentenze sulla nostra identità nazionale. Tipico video pieno di supponenza anglosassone. Dio stramaledica gli inglesi !

  5. Hi, I speak Brazilian Portuguese and I have tried to learn Latin American Spanish. When reading it, it's for sure not difficult to understand about 80% of it. Because we live in São Paulo, we have no exposer whatsoever to the Spanish language. I have been to Chile after studying Spanish a bit and I got surprised of how little I could understand of the spoken language. They could not understand my Portuguese as well. So I basically had to rely on English to communicate there. I have always found way easier to study English than Spanish. However, Italian language, because of the phonetic similarities with Brazilian Portuguese in São Paulo Brazil (lots of Italians immigrants came to my region in the 19th and 20th centuries influencing our accent) I could understand it much better when I went to Italy than I understood Spanish when I went to Chile.
    I am an English teacher here in Brazil btw.

  6. bunch of bull shit !!! before 1861 the kingdom of the two sicilies as its capital was Napoli …was the richest ….after unification the north stole all the wealth from the south and industrialized the north !!!!  this is not a unified nation

  7. I do not understand this logic, France's regions have fiscal federalism, Germany, Canada, Russia and USA are federal countries, where in the USA there are state militias that train themself in the woods in case the central governament becomes a dictatorship, the UK is the union of three kingdoms and a principality that have different national sportive selections… but if italians want more regional autonomy good lord it's a threat to everithing and everyone and the raise of fascism (I don't even see the connections by the way they were very centralists)… well I guess we must be very special.
