Italy and England, a millennial love not always reciprocated …

Well let’s talk about football but also about feelings, which then as a matter we are already there. And when we talk about football and feelings we talk about passions and efforts, traditions, glories. Oh yeah. We are talking about conflicts and rivalries, present and past, and yes, we are talking about Italy and England, these two countries that have always loved each other in very alternating phases. of color, which also affects so much on the emotional childish minds of the stadium curves and worse, on the street mobs and balconies. So let’s start immediately: we skip the glories of the conquest of the Britannia of Julion Caesar, the nefarious massacres of the rebellious and hysterical Budicca, the consequent extermination of the Iceni, rebellious Britons, and the foundation of the new true Rome, what else Constantinople O Moscow, it was in effect London. That’s right, Londinium, the not only political and military but above all ethical and moral center of what will become the second great empire in the history of man, and first by territorial extension, even if it ended up succumbing quickly to the third, the American one, provided that even the latter does not succumb to the worst lurking, the Chinese one, of course.We skip the Roman legions without fail for a good reason: because there, having liquidated the first phase where the natives were probably even cannibals, Love was if not undisputed almost total . The Britons were certainly neither the first nor the best in Romanising themselves, but immediately they had in their house irreducible opponents to Romanization (a practically unique phenomenon in Europe, since even the ultra-trans-Germanic and Caucasian-Asian barbarians who after centuries made imploding the Western Roman Empire were not actually opponents of Rome, but rejected lovers who then took it all out of spite). Scotland who have always cheered against the English national team (also because they have their own national team, which also participates in international football tournaments with its colors, like that of Wales, by chance also unique there and if we want anomalous in Europe) . So, and let’s get to the point, why the SCOTTISH they make us exclude Roman history from this little excursus on LOVE AFFAIR Italian-English? But because Caledonia still Britain was, and never was, so the “love affair” never took place there, damn it.

And after i Romanian? Eh, not everything is known there: it is no coincidence that the legends of King Arthur, Merlin and the knights of the Round Table start from those years shrouded in the mists of Avalon. ROCKSTAR English since Boudicca, yes he, Richard The Lionheart. We’re not going to do any biographical hucksters now; we will limit ourselves to saying that he obtained the laurels of fame and glory of his time and beyond certainly because of his courage in battle, but above all of his bombastic leadership in the famous Third Crusade, especially after the most famous Barbarossa ended up drowned in a fluvial accident, resulting in the almost total abandonment of the German armies, which would have been so useful to beat Il Fierce Saladin and to retake Jerusalem. In fact, no Jerusalem, even if Riccardo still managed to beat Saladin on several occasions and in the glorious battle of Arsuf, which was then considered a sort of revenge for the disastrous Crusader defeat at the Horns of Hattin. But not before having always set foot victoriously in Sicily and Cyprus (an event that proved decisive for the future English imperialism up to the present day).
