Molto Bene!
You certainly know a lot about Italy! Definitely more than the average Joe. It's incredible how little some people know about one of the most fascinating countries in the world, and we're happy to report you're not one of them. You have a good knowledge of Italy as a country, but there is so much more to know, and there were some questions you answered incorrectly, so we recommend you look at the questions you did miss and complete your knowledge.
 
Molto Impressionante!
Hey, are you Italian? No fair! If you aren't, we are mighty impressed with your knowledge of this ancient country. Most people only know the stereotypes of Italy but lack knowledge about the country itself. Being one of the most beautiful and rich countries in the world, that is a shame. You have an advanced knowledge of this country, which means you have great geographical knowledge, have been interested in Italy or have been there. Kudos!
