It's funny how far we've come in society. Many people by today's standards would be shocked to know that George Eliot, the author of many famous works and quotes was actually a woman. Marian Evans created the pen name in 1857 to help disguise the fact that she was a female novelist. She also felt that her status as being unmarried would also have been detrimental to her career. So she came up with the pseudonym of George Eliot after convincing her publisher.
Here is one of Eliot's famous quotes translated into Italian:
It is never too late to be what you might have been. Non è mai troppo tardi per essere ciò che saresti dovuto essere.

What is Agriturismo? In Italian, it is actually a combination of two words - Agricoltura and Turismo - agriculture and tourism.
It basically means spending your vacation on a farm. It started becoming popular in the 1980s when many Italian farmers were looking for other ways to supplement their income. At an Italian agriturismo you will usually have the chance to experience the foods prepared from raw materials produced on the farm. Some will allow their guests participate in the activities surrounding the farm such as wine-making, cheese-making, olive production, milking cows, etc. It is usually a very rustic experience. Agriturismo can be another option instead of a typical Italian vacation that involves Italian hotels. Most of them are located in Tuscany, Umbria and Sicily.
