Hello people, it’s been a while I’ve been traveling with my sister to celebrate her Quinceañero. It was very cool.
I was in Italy, I really love it and my Italian also know as the Worst Italian ever was a shame but a helpful shame. Also I had forgot how many Ecuadorian there are in Italy it was…
You should try with Corto Maltese by Hugo Pratt (who, in spite of his name&surname was from Venice) :D it’s more than mere comics… it’s ART. *-* And Corto is a sort of pirate and he has these dreamish adventures :D I’d suggest you to start from ‘Una ballata del mare salato’ *-* Yes, actually we have some interesting natural history museum around…just they are less famous than the art/archeological ones xD Naples has one for each cathegory, BTW… with the archeological museum (one of the largest ancient greek/roman art collection in the world, since there’s basically EVERYTHING from Pompei and Ercolano xD), Capodimonte gallery (with part of the Farnese collection -the Farnese were an important reinassance family..who gave birth to more than one Pope- which includes lots of Tiziano, and with some Caravaggio and Luca Giordano) and also a natural history museum which unfortunately stays closed for most of the time :(
Rome is amazing too, BTW…together with Venice :D
I KNOW CORTO. I even bought an agenda because I was too broke to buy comics when I found them :’D. My favorite is The Celtics, it was the first one I picked up before knowing the series because Ireland but I haven’t read all of them yet. But he will always be my top heroic world traveler even before Tintin.
And yes there are so much to see in Italy. Now that you tell me that I want to go to Naples even more and Palermo too as I dream with going to Sicily. Also Venice. I love how Italy influenced a great part of the art in the Western world and the American continent too.
Thanks for the advices
