While Slovenians watch Alpine Ski World Championships and Luka Dončić ruling the NBA, this Slovenian will watch the final San Remo evening. It’s Saturday night in Tuscany.
I was spurred into thinking of what characteristics I’d take from both our nations.
What I take from the Italians:
Joy. Hedonism. Sense of style. Self worth. Love.
What I take from the Slovenians:
Humility. Common sense. Non-materialism. Order. Culture.
Another difference: on Slovenian national TV you can’t say cazzo. My favourite song from this year’s San Remo. (It will not win. The festival’s guest of honour is the Despacito Fonzie guy.)
