20 mooie quotes over Italië

In Italië vonden we bij boekhandelsketen Feltrinelli een schitterend schetsboek van National Geographic, vol met schetsen van Italiaanse bellezze, schoonheden, lege pagina’s voor je eigen schetsen en (aan)tekeningen én inspirerende quotes over Italië van bekende schrijvers, muzikanten, filmregisseurs en andere kunstenaars.

Deze quotes zijn te mooi om niet met jullie te delen, aangevuld met een aantal van onze favoriete quotes over Italië die we al reizend en lezend verzameld hebben.

Avrai tu l’universo, resti l’Italia a me.
Giuseppe Verdi

Everyone who has a dream should go to Italy. It doesn’t matter if you think your dream is dead and buried, in Italy it will rise and walk again.
Elizabeth Spencer

Open my heart and you will see, graved inside of it, Italy.
Robert Browning

The Creator made Italy from designs by Michelangelo.
Mark Twain

Italy is a dream that keeps returning for the rest of your life.
Anna Akhmatova

Italy, and the spring and first love all together should suffice to make the gloomiest person happy.
Bertrand Russell

Chi vive a Roma dopo un po’ di tempo non si accorge più delle sue bellezze, ma appena si allontana anche per un breve viaggio e ritorna, ritrova Roma bella, magica e grandiosa più di prima.
Marta Marzotto

Roma non è una città come le altre. È un grande museo, un salotto da attraversare in punta di piedi.
Alberto Sordi

Da Bari a Alberobello, tra le Murge e l’Adriatico la terra è arancione. Un leggero tappeto arancione, arabescato da muretti dello stesso colore e da radi boschi di ulivi d’un verde carico, vicino al celeste, tra cui, ogni tanto, compare un gregge di pecore color malva, con le zampe nere, eleganti e lievi come ballerine.

Forse il capolavoro delle Puglie è proprio Alberobello. Non c’è manuale turistico che lo ignori, né libro di geografia per scuole medie che non porti la fotografia dei suoi trulli.
Pier Paolo Pasolini

Milan is a true metropolis: strong and fearless but welcoming, too. Little by little, I came to realize that I could become someone here.
Giorgio Armani

Venice! There is a most admired city, a most celebrated, a most sung by the poets, most desired by lovers, most visited and most famous? Venice! There is a name in human language that has made to dream more than that?
Guy de Maupassant

Io amerei vivere su un pianeta tutto napoletano perché so che ci starei bene. Napoli va presa come una città unica, molto intelligente. Napoli è troppo speciale quindi non la possono capire tutti.
Marcello Mastroianni

From the dome of St. Peter’s one can see every notable object in Rome… He can see a panorama that is varied, extensive, beautiful to the eye, and more illustrious in history than any other in Europe.
Mark Twain

One doesn’t come to Italy for niceness […] one comes for life. Buongiorno! Buongiorno!
E.M. Forster

Dove c’è architettura c’è Italia. Essere conservatori italiani in architettura significa solo conservare l’antica energia italiana di trasformarsi continuamente.
Gio Ponti

Amo i tuoi mari splendidi e le tue Alpi sublimi, amo i tuoi monumenti solenni e le tue memorie immortali, amo la tua gloria e la tua bellezza.
Edmondo De Pacis

Milano è bella con la nebbia, è un po’ una donna con la veletta.
Ornella Vanoni

Venice is like eating an entire box of chocolate liqueurs in one go.
Truman Capote

I love places that have an incredible history. I love the Italian way of life. I love the food. I love the people. I love the attitudes of Italians.
Elton John

Italy will never be a normal country. Because Italy is Italy. If we were a normal country, we wouldn’t have Rome. We wouldn’t have Florence. We wouldn’t have the marvel that is Venice.
Matteo Renzi

    waar kan ik het boek met quotes kopen?

  2. Ciao Gerd, bij de Feltrinelli, zoals ook bovenaan in het artikel staat 🙂

  3. In Italy, for 30 years under the Borgias, they had warfare, terror, murder and bloodshed, but they produced Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci and the Renaissance. In Switzerland they had brotherly love, they had 500 years of democracy and peace – and what did that produce? The cuckoo clock.

    Graham Greene
