The Spanish merry and welcoming.

When God finally concluded the creation, the Angel told Him: “My Lord, you gave two virtues to all the peoples, but three to the Italians! This would make them prevailing over all the other!”
“Oh my God - God said - that’s true! But you know, my dear Angel, that you cannot take out divine virtues once they are granted. Let the Italians have three virtues then, but let’s make sure that each of them cannot have more than two at the same time…”
And that’s how it came that:
- The Italians who are honest and belong to the Popolo delle Libertà cannot be intelligent;
- The Italians who are intelligent and belong to the Popolo delle Libertà cannot be honest;
