4, 5, 14, 15
And 23 🙂
(sorrry, this took me like 2 hrs to respond to, I was meeting with my advisor lol)
4. favourite dish specific for your country?
I’m going to mention saguinaccio again cos it is specifically lucano and it is coming up to lent so I have been CRAVING it lol and also arancini cos I eat them…every day. And just anything with wild boar.
5. favourite song in your native language?
ahhh (excluding opera) any neapolitan song but especially core’ngrato (sung by roberto murolo!!) even tho I’m not neapolitan, just cos my family is very musical and we always sing those songs. And canada has no music, but idk why that song about the northwest passage kind of makes me canada-nostalgic lol
14. do you enjoy your country’s cinema and/or TV?
for italy, weirdly not, cos I find a lot of our *famous* directors kind of depressing? some movies and tv i like tho. and for canada, we have no tv of our own :/ I usually watch older movies in italian or foreign shows dubbed into italian lol
15. a saying, joke, or hermetic meme that only people from your country will get?
Hhhmm… this is a hard one, I can’t really think of any… Idk why this comes to mind because it is completely idiosyncratic to my family: instead of saying “but yes” we say as a joke “ma sciu” which was someone’s mistake while trying to say “but sure” in english ahah That counts as a hermetic meme.
23. which alcoholic beverage is the favoured one in your country?
well…wine! or grappa but specifically *lucano* is my favourite: aglianico del vulture (esp cos my family is from vulture :3 and my grandpa grew the grapes to make wine in his bathtub lol )
