Great sign for international relationships!

Lots of Italians in Brattleboro? Maybe it's left over from the Euro Cup hype?

Don't unplug your hub. said...

I bet it is football related.

Malyss said...

Didn't you hear about the european football competition?!..
(You call that "soccer", I'm not talking about "US football", which has nothing to do with true football..)
As half italian, I thank you and those people for the gift! :o)

It has to be left over from Euro12. Even I heard of that and I'm not much of a soccer fan.

Having just come back from this beautiful country, I say "here, here".

Conundrums appear everywhere these days. Do you have a lot of Italians living in Brattleboro. We have a lot in Stone Creek. Some of my best friends are Italians. :-)

Maybe it's still there since the European soccer tournement finals last week (Italy finished second after Spain). My 14 yo daughter was in Spain on that night and she said that even the fire trucks started driving around with firemen dancing on top, sprinkling people with water... She turned Spanish for one night... if you can't beat them... join them... Anyway, thanks for this little gift.

Soccer, soccer, on many Europeans' minds these past few weeks-- and apparently on some Americans' minds as well. While I was visiting Nice with our common friend Malyss, I noticed most restaurants had huge TV screens outside so patrons could enjoy dinner AND a game too. :-) Veronique (French Girl in Seattle)

Thanks Brattcatt. Although I am not Italian by blood, I do eat Italian food, from time to time. So, thank you once again. Ciao.

Do we need a reason to cheer Italy?

Virginia said...

A charming little sign and I'm sure your readers will appreciate the thought.

Thank for the thought, but I have never seen an Italian flag like that, it looks more like an Hungarian flag upside down!B y the way it is: "Viva l'Italia"...
