So it turns out that Italy holds the world record in 2011 for most solar panels installed, beating Germany, which was the world leader in solar panels for ten years, 3:1. Looks like she's finally going green, ah bless. Considering that Italy was one of the last countries in the developed world to get rid of leaded gas, I found this to be very surprising indeed.
See what I did there? It is genetically impossible for an Italian person to say something good about their country without immediately following it up with a pegorative comment. If anyone does have a mutation which allows them to complement this country unchecked, they are immediately labeled as naive suckers, the poor dears.
