So, you might be wondering what “a presto” means if you don’t speak Italian. It’s my mother language so I should know, but it can be surprising how many people know little about their own language. When people are so used to just saying things, they forget what it really means to say what they say. Do you know what i mean.
That’s one of the things I love about travel, and taking road once in a while outside of Rome. Because by taking distance, and looking back from a new perspective you start to see things in different light. Often, when you meat foreigners you start talking about your own countries, and their differences and such. That’s the time when you have to reflect, and admit to yourself that you don’t know as much as you would like to know.
So ever since, I’ve been kind of fixing this cap I have with Italian culture. And try to think things out, and not just accept everything as blatant “as it is” kind of a phenomenon.
As for a presto, it’s one of those things that Italians say all the time. It means, “see you soon”. And basically you see everything soon, or at least that’s what they say. And it’s a great saying, because it feels people close, into unity. Feeling that everyone is near, and accessible, hopefully, at best.. soon!
A presto my dear blog readers!
