Italian cars are cute…maybe too cute

IMG_1956They are adorable and tiny and look like toys–so of course my 7-year-old wants one. I understand space is a premium in Italy and the diminutive stature of these cars is critical for fitting into tight parking spaces or squeezing through ancient Vias, but did they have to make them look so, well, cute. We have persuaded Brigitte that even though the car looks like it is just right for her, she still needs to wait a few years before she is old enough to drive one. In the meantime we’ll be buying her a new bike this summer.
