Did you know that?
In the years after World War II, the poor boys in Naples used to shine soldiers’ shoes thus changing the English name ‘shoe-shine’ to the napolitan sciuscià. The term had great success and spread all over Italy. Nowadays nobody talks about sciuscià but it remains a heritage of Italian culture.
