A short relational description between Kosovo and Italy would be interesting to know, and also the Italian perspective on Kosovo declaring its independence and the prospect of it joining the EU.
Answer on What are Italy's traditional ties to Kosovo, and how do they feel about their independence and joining the EU?
There are no traditional 'ties'
I really dont know where you got that..
As for it joining the EU... i wouldnt bank on it, since its still a big issue wheather they should be considered a country just because a separatist ethnic majority thinks so. Kosovars that arent albanian do not support secession and the rights of illegal albanian immigrants (to vote for a secession) are still in question.
