As a nation state, Italy has emerged only in 1871. Until then the country was politically divided into a large number of independant cities, provinces and islands. The currently available evidences point out to a dominant Etruscan, Greek and Roman cultural influence on today's Italians.
Da qualche giorno girovago in questo sito . Una cosa non capisco.
Questa bacheca dovrebbe occuparsi di storia e cultura italiana, invece e` una bacheca generale con topics di ogni tipo.
Bisognerebbe mettere e mantenere un certo ordine e gli utenti dovrebbero mantenersi ad esso.
Un saluto a tutti.
Fernando: visita meglio il sito e vedrai che NON ÃƒÂ¨ quel che dici tu.
Riguardo all'ordine qui facciamo del nostro meglio, ma l'ordine non esiste a livello mondiale... figuriamoci...!
Poi, piÃƒÂ¹ precisamente e a cominciare proprio da te:
perchÃƒÂ¨ posti la tua critica qui sul forum (Italian History & Culture), quando questa tua critica NON ha per oggetto la storia e la cultura italiana, e certamente, essendo una critica, era appropriato inviarla direttamente al website owner....??
"Si predica bene e si razzola male".
Ok - I will say it then! This is a great site, well designed, easy to navigate, and with very educational and informative articles. The people who volunteer are very generous with their time, compassion for others and expertise. I have learned more watching this site for the last couple of years, and posting for the last few weeks, than in twenty years of lone research. I wish I had met people like these when I started.
Thank you Edmondo for the site, and all of the wonderful peple who generously help others. You know who you are. This site feels more like a family than a forum
I apologise to have created a bad first impression.
It was only meant to be constructive but... yes it is true, I haven't spent enough time to familiarise myself with the site.
I hope it will be better next time.
I didn't barge in to criticise but to see how I could contribute.

No harm done...if you do get the chance to look over this site you'll notice that most (but not all) are just volunteers..people helping people. Those of us that are used the forum post in the "proper" heading but many newcomers don't..
Of course, some post the same question under all headings which can be challenging.
We're glad you dropped in. I think you'll like this site. Maybe you can help us with questions from posters about Australia?
