Following Goethe's traces in Italy
La Dolce Vita
Goethe was surprised by the one thing he wasn't prepared for - the Italian attitude towards life, their laid-back approach, optimism, and sensuality. "La dolce vita", the good life, was his great discovery in Italy. He put it into words and Italians adored him for doing so. In Germany those words in his travel journal inspired many with the desire to visit Italy - a desire that remains unabated.
