" are you from Russia?! mmmm. mmmmm or Wow !" What does it mean? Let me guess.... It means a set of stable associations: Russia/ vodka / Bears .. red square, the Soviet Union/ snow and then( maybe ) Dostoyevsky, Tchaikovsky, Stanislavski e .t.c.I thought it was in the past.Am i wrong?

Well in Italy we have 4 main stereotypes we have to defend from:
1. We have no civic sense and we get recognised abroad for this
2. We don't speak english very well, or we don't even speak english at all
3. In Italy politicians are all involved in Mafia
4. We have a great cuisine
I've got to say it's not the truth!!....our cuisine is not so good! :)
May be , many sterotypes (or all) are created because of the movies...
Mexico has many of them
Could be, people with strange hats (too big ones), eating "tacos" or "burritos" and lying near a "nopal".
Also (of course), the accent and some "special phrases"
"Andale Wey, vente pa' ca" haha !
If you have more, comment!
About Italy:Of course everyone knows Don Corleone-this image of a typical Italian ,a good Pizza and Pasta,trains who are late.Its funny becouse for me it is a country of the Italian Renaissance and beautiful art <Leonardo Michelangelo, Scarlatti Visconti Antonioni е t с
by the way I myself have a few stereotypes about Mexico: Tequilla, drugs, everything that forbids America allows Mexico
A few sterotypes about my country America: there is too much gun violence and crime in America, there are too many fat Americans, because they eat too much fast food, there is too much greed and materialism in America, and there is an intolerance of foreigners who don't speak English. Of course, these are just sterotypes that are not necessarily true.
Brazil: we party too much, don't work that hard, are friendly, have a weird online laughter, have nice, tanned bodies, so on and so forth. I could go on forever. We all dance samba and go to the beach. The girls are hot, the guys are handsome. We always have a smile in our faces. We're loud, passionate, and have strong family values. We're mostly happy even though we live in a violent, poverty stricken society.
Some of these are true, but I won't tell you which ones. You'd have to come to Brazil to figure it out!
