Italy Mini-Game in English
Doing Business with Italians
The original diversophy® Italy training tool is now transformed into Mini-Decks. Each one contains all you need to play a full session of diversophy®.
Does Italian history start with the wolf giving suck to Romulus and Remus, or with Garibaldi´s unification of the Italian states? Or is it held together by “bella figura”, the Italians’ capacity to make looks and life an art form? Certainties are hard to come by in Italy. Is the Pope Italian? No, not any more.
The great diversity of region and opinion make Italy seem ungovernable. North and South seem and act like different worlds. Find out more about the virtues and paradoxes of Italians you know and will come to know by playing this game.
