20 USA Vs. Italy Cultural Differences Explained By An American Who Moved To Italy

Published 5 months ago

It’s no surprise that different countries have their own unique traditions that foreigners may find a little weird at first. Just ask American actor and dancer Kacie Burns – the woman moved form Canton, Michigan to Florence, Italy, and decided to document some of the biggest ‘culture shocks’ that she experienced in hilariously accurate TikToks.

Kacie’s funny ‘culture shock’ series have nearly 10 million likes, and it’s interesting to see just how different the Italian and American cultures are. From openly drinking wine in public to the differences in tipping culture, see the biggest cultural differences highlighted by this American living in Italy in the gallery below!

Aušrys Uptas

One day, this guy just kind of figured - "I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?" - and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that's trending on the web. Some things that always pique his interest are old technologies, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness. So if you find something that's too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!

Got wisdom to pour?
