Is an Italian town between Naples and Reggio Calabria that has something in common with Pula, HR?

Yes, they were. Thanks for TV footage.
But this was exactly the way things were done during communism.

Should it be Krim, or some male team from Koper or Celje?

I don't like handball at all. Too many goals, no midfield play. Players just run from a goal zone to the other. Same problem with water polo, basketball, and a number of other sports. They could cut the field in half and just play on only one goal.

Italy and Germany are not even remotely comparable in terms of quality of living. I prefer when I lived in Germany, too.

But surely Italy is a lot more fun, its prettier and the people are friendlier? That's my experience in Italy anyway, far more laid back then these grumpy Germans...

You can almost say this for Romania too.
But only as a tourist, or passing by, you won't have the same opinion after you encounter all the bad things of everyday life as a person who lives there

I think the Euro(pean) (Football Cup) should have a 3rd place match like the World Cup.

If you are the adventurous type, sure.

I think it just has more variety of environments. Cities and towns in Germany are prettier, setting aside exceptions like Rome, Florence, Venice and some smaller towns. German towns are orderly and relaxing, Italian ones are stressful

Bavarians are far frendlier than, say, Abruzzese or Sardinians

G.Spinoza answered you for me too. I can add, I prefere the german climate since I hate pretty much hot and sticky summer here... I liked the free autobahns so that I could travel all week-ends somewhere just spending fuel, while here I can't. About to have fun, in Germany even in small villages there were things to do, for example in the rural area of Main-Tauber-Kreis were my ex came from, there were always a lot of concerts for whom loved metal music or parties in club for whom loved house and electro music. A bus shuttle went through all villages of the area for dont let guy drive after drink (drinks in Germany are super comparating here, and much cheaper). In Italy this doesn't exist, and I hardly find something funny to do in my town (20.000 inhabitants) cause here there are just smalls bars that close at 01.00am so you have to go by force to Milan. But even there, locals that do for example music I like are just 2 or 3 so after some times starts to be boring (and expansive since you pay minimun 10 € just for to enter, and 4 € for a low quality beer). And for last but not less important... for me german girls (northern/central/eastern to be precise) are the most beautiful cause Mediterranean girls with dark eyes, small and tanned skin I dont like at all. And here where I live, since it isn't neither a touristic town, I don't see any girl looking like my favourite kind! Then there are many other things but these are enough....

EDIT: about work in Italy: to break my back for 900/1000€ monthly, don't have any gratification for your good work but see you have to take orders from recommended people for then arriving at home tired and watch in television your Prime Minister and his entourage that nobody elected to tell "people have to do sacrifice cause to work is not a right, or that people should work one week more in a year - and who said this, works just 2 or 3 hours by day 2 or 3 days for week-" rising taxes on everything to pay the disaster the politicians did wasting public money...honestly I don't like at all to be part of this system
