Italy

Italy as a car destination.

Japan, Great Britain, France, Germany, Switzerland all have great active car communities and car events. Italy on the otherhand seems to have great car establishments but no grassroots car scene. Automotive excellence is instead siloed away and shipped to foreigners, you are most likely to see the best of Italy in Switzerland and Japan. Italy has no Le Mans, Isle of Man or Nurburgring equivalent.

Is there a single good reason to go to Italy?

      They actually have a very active grassroots motorcycle and kart racing culture instead. Especially motorcycles.

      Italy is one of the easiest countries to go pro in either from a young age other than Spain and UK

    We do this with every single of our excellence product and non, we can’t afford shit because we’re a third world country with salaries stuck at the same levels of the 90s thanks to Europe and the Americans who fricked up this country after the war with gladio and their satanic 3 letter agencies.

        V6 busso does like 6 km with 1 litre of fuel, it’s expensive as frick to run and maintain.
        Have you ever seen cars on our roads? They’re all neglected, dirty and left mostly without care.
        My father has an 80.000€ suv bought in September of last year and it’s never been washed, he uses it with dirty windows and a mix of dust/salt encrusted to the body of the car.

        It makes me beyond mad.

      People in Italy, especially younger ones, do not have the necessary buying power, which keeps a lot of them outside car stuff.

      Core problem of Italy is the existence of Southern Italy lol (followed by the Black person influx and the overall mafia political cuilture).

          warm countries almost always have horrible atrociously bad salaries and the same living costs as their northern neighbors

      >thanks to Europe
      Now I'm mad. First off: if even Greece managed to raise salaries, then it's not Europe, it's Italy; I know scapegoating is our national sport, but the whole of Europe managed to grow. Secondly: the economy has stagnated because industrially we're stuck in the '80s, with cottage industry out of the wazoo, with massive inefficiencies at every turn; the whole economy is made out of small-medium businesses and owners always straddle the line of illegality with bullshit contracts and criminally low pays. Young people entering the job market have no choice but basically work for free for one to four years, depending on how lucky they are. Workers' rights have been eroded in the last 30 years, thanks to the efforts of basically the whole political spectrum, and with little reaction from the population because they're all dumb cattles that can be easily bribed with some pitiful gibs, especially boomers.

      Meanwhile second hand cars' prices have skyrocketed, and gas often swings above 2€/l. The end result is that even if I wanted to buy a Miata and have fun with it, I basically can't because in my two years of hard work I managed to save little over 5k, all while splitting rent and utilities and being a nocar. And I'm a fricking engineer for God sake! So no, muh Europe scapegoat won't work this time: it's business owners that need a fricking bullet in the back of their stupid greedy head!

        >5k
        fra go back living with your parents or leave like I and many more did. 2 years of 800 euro/month internship or what? If you have an eng degree go back to your parents and look for a proper job wherever in Italy or abroad, that is not normal.

          The first 6 months were a 700€/month stage, and that eroded my pre-existing savings. It's a long story, but it ain't easy for me at the moment to leave this hopeless shithole. My plan is to work another year and then try getting hired abroad again, hopefully the work experience pays off.

        The real sign of the car market being all sorts of fricked is the fact that you can't even buy a beater for less than 1k anymore. Even commuters like the Nissan Micra K11/12 or Toyota Yaris are now in the 2k range for their BASE TRIMS at a decent mileage.

          I was looking at some wagecuck car and people ask more than 2k for literal wrecks, and I mean complete write-offs (front end gone, exploded airbags). A quick search and I found a totaled Fiesta, with 170k km, for the low low price of 1500€. I remember seeing people asking like 10k for an unrepaired MX-5 ND that literally rolled over. I blame boomers for this. They stole from the future, and now they keep stealing from the already impoverished present.

    there are way more reasons to visit Italy than ANY other country on earth as a foreigner. And I say this as an Italian expat. Living in Italy is hellish, visiting it on the other hand, especially coming from a better economy, is peak travelling. Everytime I come back now I actually enjoy Italy much more then when I lived there.

    amerifat here, my mom wanted to go to italy so I went with her and my sister. Rented a little gay fiat with 95 hp and a 6 speed. I had a blast! didnt get to go on any of the really famous alpine roads or whatever cus it was winter, but the roads I did go on were fun and honestly just the traffic flow of a bunch of italians in underpowered manual shitcans is really fun. Maybe theres something wrong with me but i enjoyed the tight village streets and the madness of milans main roads. I love america and our roads but man italian traffic is something else... most americans would probably crack under the pressure but if youre fine with it, its fun
