Funny that regardless of the region of the world, the north seems to be more industrialized, and the southern more agrarian. Apparently it's the case in the US, Italy, and also my country, Portugal. Usually the northern people complain that the south doesn't work hard enough, I wonder if it is the same case in Italy?
