In fact, the friendly Texan people, whose affection I felt fully, reminded me of the region of Umbria from which I come, for its industriousness and its strong ties to the land and its roots. It is a land that can be very generous, shaped by the skillful work of man and filled with people who are authentic, frank and generous in turn.It is said that everything is greater in Texas, and I can confirm that the spirit, kindness and generosity with which I have been welcomed are really huge."
