Italy should do this
Italy should rename itself rome. Italy is kind of known for being poor and pizza and mobsters and what-not. But what if Italy had went by the name ROME the entire time!? You would not think of "its a me mariooo" when you saw italy on the map. You'd think of Julius Ceasar and massive concrete stadiums and a powerful empire with great warriors..
Going with the name "italy" is just bad P.R. and it also sounds stupid. You can not tell me your perception of italy wouldnt be different if it still went by the name ROME.
