I'm an Italian girl who loves XVIII century and this is the blog in which I'll post my personal things!
Look what I found, papa!

Abraham Lincoln used to wear these adorable goat slippers around the White House. Isn’t that just charming?

Side note: they’re a size 14. At 14, those goats are practically life-sized.

Historically, I didn’t think Lincoln could have been any more of a dork than I had already made him out to be. I was wrong.

What if there was a John Laurens equivalent of the Alexander Hamilton Awareness Society

I don’t know how I would feel about that

The AHA Society makes me too uncomfortable for me to think this would be a good thing.

elizabeth-karenina asked: John Adams or Thomas Jefferson

A fine morning. A Charming warm Day. Every thing looks gay and lively. The Grass begins to spring, and the sprightly sunbeams gleam upon the houses. The windows are opened, the insects begin to buz, and every thing wellcomes the Joyful Spring.
John Adams’s diary, April 12, 1756 (via foundingfatherfest)

Louis XVI suggesting an alternative to the original design of the guillotine in La Révolution Française (1989)
:(

Akjahsdkjapocryphalstoryajsdkad, but still cinematically speaking I enjoy this scene. In terms of telling stories in movies it’s pretty neat. I know it’s like beat-you-over-the-head ~foreshadowing~ but I enjoy it ;.;

Oh what I could be if there was only me!
Oh what I’d do if I didn’t have you! 
So has this been done before…? Cause Devon and Cornwall translate really well into Hermann and Newt. K-Science Dragon!

If WWI was a Rap Battle…

play this at my wedding, my funeral, and the births of all my children

How many children do you expect to bear after your funeral?

for the literalists in the audience, vary the order of that list as needed
