This does not apply to driving an Alfa Romeo

I'm reading In Praise of Slowness by Carl Honore, which is about the various ways people around the world are slowing down to enjoy life. Honore's not a self-help guru; he's a journalist who approaches each slow advocate skeptically, so it's enlightening without being preachy.

One of the chapters deals with Cittaslow, a movement by cities to slow down their pace to make life more enjoyable.

But what I find hilarious and typical is the list of official Slow Cities.

USA = 1
Italy = 46

Oh, Italy. I'm going to miss you guys.
