Why are Italian tourists so pushy and rude?
We cannot reconcile these brand-addicted airheads with their cultured forebears
Are Italians the rudest people on the planet? Three times this year, trying to alight from a Tube train, I’ve been shoved back by stylishly dressed people pushing in to board before the alighting passengers are off: and every time they’ve been yabbering in Italian. How do we reconcile modern Italy – consumerism, junk television, brand addiction and mindless celebrity worship – with the Italy of Venice, da Vinci, Verdi and the Medicis? Say what you like about our rowdy, beer-swilling English mob but, tattoos and all, they’d have seen through Berlusconi in an instant.
