Italians brace yourselves for Snooki and company. After a not so warm welcome in Miami for season 2, Jersey Shore cast members are going to try their luck in their dream country, I guess.
The press release issued last Tuesday by MTV gave us a hint for what Italians can expect:

Upside down? Really guys?
I think it's funny the producers assume that in Italy this will be a great happening, that there are lots of guidos and guidettes hanging out on the piazzas and that Italy will never know what hit her.
