You know you are in a fashionable country when even the police look fabulous. In Italy we have Polizia who are the regular police and we have the Carbinieri who I refer to as the super duper police. I think they are actually a branch of the military but they act as police. Rumor has it that their uniforms were designed by Valentino. Don't know if it is true, but they look so great it is certainly believable.
I see them almost daily in town but I was too afraid to take a picture so I pulled these from the Internet-- thanks wikipedia.
I am a thirty-something American living in Italy with my husband and young children. I absolutely love life here and am constantly inspired by the beauty, the architecture, the fashion, and the food I experience each day. In Un Altro Cappuccino, I hope to share a bit of the fabulous Italy style and culture with you.
