Italian Language, Italian Curiosities...

Our perception is always subject to our personality and to our different ways to see the world even if sometimes the evidence is so obvious.
The most striking example is about love. Often when you fall in love you get unable to see the truth, either figuratively. Maybe your friend is trying to explain you how things are and you don’t see... Avere il prosciutto sugli occhi is the perfect exclamation to  scream at your friend, because what it means is didn’t see the foul as he had prosciutto over his eyes! It is another food related italian idiom and its literal translation is “to have ham over your eyes”!.
