Uniquely Italian: A Round of Applause

If you ever fly into or out of Italy or have the pleasure of sharing a plane with mostly Italians you will always hear a round of applause upon landing. As much traveling as I have done, I have never experienced anything quite like what I have when landing in Italy or to another destination which originated in Italy. Generally when passengers clap en masse it is due to a pilot navigating through hours of turbulence or landing after circling an airport for 45 minutes, not for regular landings after flights with no turbulence. I find that the applause is uniquely Italian, so next time you fly into or out of Italy, upon landing join in and give the pilot a round of applause.
