Attitudes to Producers in Italy

2 Nov

For Italians, relationships are crucial. People buy a product not becuase it is the cheapest, or the best. They buy it becuase they have a relationship with it or the producer or even the shopkeeper.
Good luck getting people in Italy to buy your artisian sausages if you are a grumpy sod or the shopkeeper has an objectionable moustache. It will not happen. Whilst this is changing with the advent of supermarkets, it simply means that this applies in a wider context.

    i think you would need to back this up with evidence of these objectionable moustache incidents.

      Ive got lots of photos of men with moustaches, but I dont know what they do for a living so I may be unable to fulfill your request.
