Like the Roman god Janus, Italy wears two faces. One, soft with the patina of age, looks back on a glorious history — the awesome monuments of Imperial Rome, the ruins of Pompeii, the magnificence of canal-fretted Venice or colorful Florence, cradle of the Renaissance.
The other face, shiny new, reflects the modernity of a nation surging with superhighways, busy factories, and skyscrapers. Northern Italy, center of the nation's economic life, sprawls busily across the Po River plain. Industries sprout alongside time-worn medieval towns, and the alluvial soils make the area one of the richest agriculturally in southern Europe. Terraces on mountain slopes along the northern border grow grapes for wines and mulberry trees for leaves to feed silk-worms.
Central Italy is dominated by Apen-nine ridges. Once they helped bar unity; even now a village dialect may not be well understood only a few miles away. This is the nation's heartland; the region of Dante, Saint Francis , and Leonardo. Southern Italy, once poverty ridden and ravaged by malaria and erosion, rebounds under reclamation projects and expanding industry. Pacing its life is sunny Naples, the city of Vesuvius, of Capri , and Amalfi, of effervescent people who sing when they are happy, sad, or in love. Italy is one of the most attractive assignments in the Foreign Service.

Urban air pollution has become a serious problem, particularly in Milan, Rome, and Naples. Italy, as other Western democracies, currently faces striking economic and political challenges.

Domestic help is expensive, particularly if you are seeking experienced personnel. Italian workers are rare and the majority does not speak English. There are many third-country nationals available.
