Are you Italian Cristian?
If you are, that must be very interesting since I kow Italians love their meats and cheeses and cream dishes. How is your Italian family responding to your veg*ism? Do you have any discussions with them about the abuse that animals endure and all that stuff?
I am curious to know.
I think you are the only Italian vegan I know!!
Hey CG, I'm indeed Italian but have been living in London for 7 years. I haven't seen my family since I became vegan (feb), we just talked over the phone but didn't go into too much details. And you're right in saying that Italians like meats etc., but in the Italian cusine there's plenty use of vegetables, legumes and obviously pasta and rice which are all very flexible. It's just a matter of educating people! I'll do my best with my family and friends over there but I don't think I'll get far, they'll just think I'm a weirdo!
I don't know much regarding the Italian vegan "scene", I do know that Turin hosted the 3rd edition of Vegfestival
in June and that Peta is pretty active over there especially with regards to fur.
Anyway, I'm probably the only Italian on this forum!
