With Munich so close to Italy, you see all kinds of these Piaggio scooters, but this is the first I’ve ever seen one with the Italian Flag colors painted across its front side. But then the juxtaposition of the Italian scooter with the very Bavarian Pretzels, was too good to pass up. Talk about a real culture clash. I suppose the way to think about it, is that Bavarians are somewhere between Germans and Italians. For centuries they’ve been crafting their own personality – one that merges laid back Mediterranean lifestyle with true German efficiency.
