The vintage Fiat 500 is possibly my dream car. Ever since I first saw Eddie Albert careening around in one snapping pictures of Audrey Hepburn in Roman Holiday, the sight of a vintage Cinquecento just makes me giggle—especially the big-man-in-wee-car juxtaposition. Plus the car’s so cute I want to put it in my pocket. (Side note: I am not feelin’ the new J. Lo version.)
Toronto-based Etsy artisan Claudine Crangle learned some of the driving insults firsthand after spending a year living in Rome…something I’d dearly love to do myself someday. To create this card, she hand-cut and drew designs to print on natural linen stock. I like the scrapbook-y look of it.
My favorite insult has to be “‘Ma che c’hai? Gli occhi foderati di prosciutto?!’ (What, you blindfolded with ham?!)” No expletives, just another Italian reference to food. Love it.
