Well, the first original post was able to be more specific to this question. I would enjoy living in Italy or Spain. However, right now I believe I select Spain before Italy. People appear more open in Spain, and less xenophobic compared to Italy.

I have more interest in Spain’s major cities compared to Italy’s major cities. However, I have equal preference for the medium sized cities, smaller cities/towns, and nature scenery in Spain and Italy.

The music scene, café bar scene, nightclubs, ethnic festivals, and architecture appears better and more vibrant in Spain compared to Italy.

Archeaologic finds are incessant in the historical center, but in the outskirts (the 99% of Rome's metropolitan area) subway lines can be built.

Inform yourself.

I think they are building the third metro line ("C") in Rome, aren't they?
I was in Rome last summer and saw some construction works taking place just outside the Collosseum...

As for Milan, I guess they even have 4 or 5 lines there, not too few for a city of that size actually.

False.
The first construction sites opened in 2007.

Ok, but it should have started twenty years ago, according to the former mayor Rutelli.

Anyway it will take more than twenty years to reach Piazzale Clodio, if that makes you happy.

LOL! Since I don't work in Rome anymore (thanks God I don't have to deal with chaotic traffic and a pathetic subway system anymore) I don't care at all :-)

Italy. Better food, nicer people overall, cities are even more Old World European magical looking, far richer art history, don't have nearly the same level of internal conflict between cultural groups, more variety of climates, don't have nearly as shady of a past history (see Spanish colonialism), economically less bonkers (though still far from the level of northern European countries), summers in the largest cities (Rome and Milan) don't get quite as hot as they do in Madrid and Barcelona, they allow dual citizenship while Spain doesn't (unless you're a citizen of a former Spanish colony). Main downside compared to Spain right now, is their current government and the political instability in general over the past decade as well as the lackluster subway/train system.
