Ah, Italy. Just hearing its name conjures up thoughts of rolling Tuscan hills, tucked-away piazzas, winding cobbled streets and warm summer evenings. Italy can quite literally claim to be the home of romance, considering the word ‘romance’ originally meant ‘from or about Rome’. With scores of romantic spots across the country the only hard part is deciding where to go.
Whether you only just met your partner through friends or after you started to visit eHarmony UK, going on romantic trip to Italy together can be a wonderful experience. Italy is not a long way to travel – the perfect distance for a long weekend. Below are five of Italy’s best romantic getaways.
The sinking city oozes romance from every corner. The key to seeing the romantic side of Venice? Get lost.
«I want to thank all the people who wanted to send me birthday wishes through the web. As a present I would like to receive more interest and support for research, which in the last years has been considered not so much […]. Italy is very rich in human capital but has never recognized it as a value. I’m an optimist because I trust and believe in our human capital […]. I am extremely grateful for what you’re doing and what you will keep on doing».
Rita Levi Montalcini interviewed by Riccardo Luna for “Rita101” Friday 22nd April 2010

Probably it was due to an oversight. Yesterday, a friend of mine (a famous Italian writer) pointed me out a bizarre fact on Google Translate. Win some, lose some: in the true sense of the word…
There are several kinds of mistakes, but this one seems to be a glaring one. If you try to translate (on http://translate.google.it/) this sentence from Italian to English “Berlusconi non ha vinto le elezioni”, here it is the result: “Berlusconi won the elections”. In other words, just the opposite.
Right…no wait, I wrote “NON HA VINTO!” (“HE DID NOT WIN!”). Strange… Let’s try again… Berlusconi non ha vinto le elezioni… Berlusconi won the elections… What?
Let’s keep trying and change the name Berlusconi with Vendola… Vendola did not win the elections. Right.
Then, we could try with the name Obama: Obama did not win the elections. Right. Oh, yes! Let’s try with Bush: Bush won the elections. What? Uhm…Are you making fun of me?
The last attempt. Now let’s try with another right-wing candidate in Europe: Sarkozy… Sarkozy won the elections. ?!?
Again? Is it Halloween? Trick or treat? No! So why Google is making fun of us? Nevertheless, I am sure and I can guarantee that in the past, Berlusconi and Bush lost some elections…
Searching on the net, we found out that Google’s mistakes relating to Berlusconi are frequent…In October 2010 if someone tried to translate from Italian to English “Io non ho votato Berlusconi”, the translation was just the opposite: “I have voted for Berlusconi”. At the time, it was said that it was the “automatic device’ fault”, but today, here we go again!
This fact reminds me these videos…

I raise a question: is Google’s automatic device part of Berlusconi’s property?
