#118 I miss finestre aperte

Nothing more common than an open window in Italy.

Walking on the streets you can smell sugo di pomodoro, ragù or cotolette, because people very often open the window in the kitchen while cooking (especially when they cook something that has a strong smell such as fried fish).

It seems to me that here in the States, for some reason, nobody ever opens the windows…

I mean, if it is too hot people immediately switch on the A/C without even thinking about (switchin off the heating first, taking off a jacket and then maybe) opening the window…

Everyone uses a lot of perfumes and scented candles to cover smells, but nobody ever opens the window to allow some fresh air to get in before that…

I miss some fresh air

and of course an open window on a panorama italiano!
