46. The Ultimate Lottery Prize (Culture Shot)

LearnItalianPod Learn Italian with LearnItalianPod. If there’s one expression that perfectly describes Italian people imagination and creativity, that is “una ne fai, cento ne pensi” (one thing you do, one hundred things you come up with). A major Italian supermarket chain took the thinking to the extreme so, at this time of major economic crisis, they came up with the ultimate lottery prize… a job for a year!

Considering Italy’s unemployment rates, this is definitely a desirable prize for someone unemployed, so no wonder the lottery is having a huge success! Let’s dedicate today’s Culture Shot to another unusual masterpiece of Italian creativity: “the job lottery”. Enjoy!

  1. Bellissimo episodio, Jane & Massimo! I like the saying ‘una ne fai e cento ne pensi’! 🙂

  2. I’ve been looking for some phrases I could teach my kids so they can make friends on our next trip to Italy, and the Kids’ Talk is exactly what I needed. My son is walking around the house now repeating ‘posso giocare anche io?”… he’s so cute! Thanks for your incredible service.
