“I have a theory that there is something in the Italian landscape which inclines even the most stolid nature to romance.”

I’m such a sap for period pieces. Bahaha! Best book. Best movie. Best song. Brings back fond memories of Firenze. Dammit. I love opera. Kiri Te Kanawa knocks Puccini’s O Mio Babbino Caro out of the park. C’mon…sing it with me…I know you want to… :).

O mio babbino caro
mi piace, è bello, bello.
Vo’andare in Porta Rossa
a comperar l’anello!

Sì, sì, ci voglio andare!
e se l’amassi indarno,
andrei sul Ponte Vecchio,
ma per buttarmi in Arno!

Mi struggo e mi tormento!
O Dio, vorrei morir!
Babbo, pietà, pietà!
Babbo, pietà, pietà!
