Italy’s Passion




     Let’s start off this post by asking ourselves one question: What is passion?  Well, as a matter of fact, it has two very distinct definitions.  One of which is the most common definition of the word, meaning a “strong and barely controllable emotion,” while another relates to the suffering and death of Jesus.  In the novel “A Tale of Two Cities,” by Charles Dickens, passion is used and can be interpreted two different ways.  While the country of Italy has a strong and ongoing love for the production of beautiful cars that amaze all of us, with it comes the other definition of passion.  The workers and designers of Italian cars since the conception of the Italian auto industry have shaken the world with their new (often times radical and “bonkers”) ideas.  They suffered and worked hard, most even faced rejection and mockery to create cars that weren’t just meant to move from point A to point B, but to make the time spent between point A and point B to be as enjoyable as possible.  The famed car company Lamborghini rose by humble means, as one very young engineer had a vision : to create something so much more interesting than a simple tractor.  Whether we are talking about the Fiat Panda or Lamborghini Aventador, the mark and distinction of Italian work ethic and style is exemplified in everything they produce.
