A Fireplace, the real heart of an American house.
Nothing gives the idea of family holidays better than the picture of a family sitting by a fireplace.
It looks like a real must of any American house.
Of course many Italian houses have a fireplace too, but mainly independent houses, especially in the countryside, surely not many apartments.
So many Italians will be amazed to find a real fireplace in a flat.
And even more to find out that instead of real stone that is actually faux stone (I don’t think such material it’s very common in Italy… honestly I think I have never seen it there…).
Gas fireplaces are a thing in Italy, but surely not so common…
…so they might be quite amazed to see a fire burning without wood, prepare yourself to answer their question and to face their disappointment.
