The Italian Way
A lot of expats hate this, so far for us it's worked to our advantage. I just wrote a whole thing on this but deleted it as I don't want to take a chance of getting anyone in trouble. The thing is that here it's a big advantage to get to know people. As it seems that no matter what you need done you need a connection and even in the public health system things go much smoother if you can make a link to someone who knows someone, etc. Of course when you get special favors you are expected to return the favor. I don't have a problem with that.
