Italy is a small town of approximately 1200 people. They have an established business district with two banks, a laundry mat, several cafes, a donut shop, an autoparts store, a body shop, at least two garages, a lumberyard, a video store, and several antique/boutiques. At the Italy exit off I-35E, there are a Dollar General, DQ, Exxon, McD's, BBQ stand, Pizza Inn, Subway, Grandy's, and a hotel. There's a Texaco, Sonic and another BBQ stand being built.

All of the people I know there are friendly and very helpful. The lumberyard has opened their doors for me on a Sunday while I was working on my plumbing in my bathroom. Italy is mostly Baptist, but there is a small Catholic mission church.

Accademically the school has had some issues lately with a number of teachers not returning from last year. From what I understand real estate in the city itself hasn't had the kind of value growth that much of North Texas has had over the past few years, but with I-35E being widened and all of the growth in Red Oak and Waxahachie, I expect property values to increase over the next ten years.
