You'll realize there is more to discover about these two cultures than first meets the eye. Italy has been a constant source of modern culture and lifestyle, cuisine, fashion, design and music. In their search for excellence and quality, people from the Bay Area benefit from a broad range of Italy inspired ideas and capacities. At the same time, San Francisco and the Bay Area provide inspirations to contemporary Italy. The IT revolution that Silicon Valley has brought about has its roots in exportable values such as the respect for diversity and human dignity, creativity, entrepreneurship, flexibility, the acceptance of personal failure and the ability to reinvent oneself over and over. Italy is a fast student of these important 21st century values.
