Oscar Wilde

Oscar Wilde is very popular in Italy – or at least his witticisms are. Was talking to Gabriele, the owner of a local restaurant who asked if we preferred Italy of England as a place to live. As there is no simple yes/no answer we began to hum and ha. Gabriela then said that perhaps it was like Oscar Wilde and gave the quote “il paradiso lo preferisco per il clima, l’inferno per la compagnia” (I prefer heaven for the climate, but hell for the company).
