You really wanna know?!kurisuto wrote:how are French viewed in Italy ?
Most jokes in Italy are based on regional and provincial prejudices, so Veneti (people from Veneto) are ignorant and greedy, Piemontesi "fals et curtes" (in Milanese) that is "false and gentle", then Pavia ... Most of those are from where I'm from, Milan.
About other countries in Europe. Germans lack any imagination and follow orders by the letter, Austrian are a decayed people still living in the epoch of the Empire, French are presumptuous ...
Then as jokes go, half of the Italian jokes start with "There are a German, a French and an Italian ..." and the other half is about carabinieri (gendarmerie)
