How to Make a Good Impression, the Italian Way

Italian author Beppe Severgnini in his interesting book “La Bella Figura – A Field Guide To The Italian Mind” says that only in Italian does there exist an expression like “fare bella figura”.

It corresponds to the English “to look good, to make a good impression”, but it literally means “to make a good figure” and it’s more of an aesthetic judgment (and it also says a lot about how Italians think and act).

Practice this lesson, and discover how you can make a “bella figura” and impress your Italian friends.
