Man spricht deutsh - haha
Well, I already mentioned it in my intro and later on as well – this part of the Adriatic Sea was invaded by the Teutons many years ago and seems to be still popular with my fellow countrymen. “Man spricht Deutsch” is obvious almost everywhere, in signposts and shop signs (as this one which says journals and newspapers). I found that the locals speak mostly German as the second language and not many do speak English or other languages.
My tip title is referring to a very sarcastic and funny movie of the 80’s; the typo (deutsh instead of deutsch) is intentional. This movie is about an average Bavarian family being part of the Teutonic invasion at the Adriatic Sea of the 60’s to 80’s and describes in a very black humourous way the idea, the Teutons had about the perfect holiday at the Italian beaches. I was thrilled to see that it obviously made it to overseas (the link above is from NY Times) – so if you have a chance to see it, watch it to get an idea why I am so often referring to the benefits, the change back to local identity has brought to the region.
