There's an italian lunch deli type restaurant that opened up over the summer near me. Completely staffed and run by a mexican family. My sister went to eat with me there last week and she ordered in spanish for the hell of it, in an italian restaurant.

So: old story.

I thought they developed pasta themselves. So if Kublai failed to conquer China, there would be no pasta in the world?

Perhaps some people would be happier with this label: "MADE IN ITALY BY ITALIANS WHO LIVE IN ITALY AND WHO SPEAK ITALIAN AND WHO EAT ITALIAN FOODS AND DRINK ITALIAN WINE AND NOT MADE BY CHINESE IMMIGRANTS, BE THEY LEGAL OR ILLEGAL, WHO MAY OR MAY NOT HAVE LEARNED THE SARTORIAL ARTS IN AN ITALIAN DESIGN SCHOOL UNDER THE MASTER TUTELAGE OF ITALIAN MASTER TAILORS WHO WERE BORN IN ITALY, LIVE IN ITALY AND WHO SPEAK ITALIAN AND WHO EAT ITALIAN FOODS AND DRINK ITALIAN WINE"?

I know you're kidding, but why didn't you just cut to the chase from the get-go and say "Made in Italy by people whose families have lived here for many generations"

Someday, China will take a dump on the world, and that will be it. China is our enemy, at least when it comes to all things quality clothing.

Finally, a thread the spammers can fully participate in!


I've discussed this on a different forum to some length years ago, I first remember the Chinese in that region back in 01/02?

Some people on here got so defensive when I called out "italian" quality.

The truth is China has been planning this for hundreds of years, there are columns of soldiers and tanks in the basements of Chinatown restaurants and stores in every country they're in (and they're in every country!). One day when you least (or most) expect it, they'll come out of their basements and take over the world!

That is a fascinating film that exposes the social ills of Italy. It is factually-based and really eye-opening.

This week's Monocle podcast has an interesting discussion on the 'Made In' claims.
