With the globalization of the world in every aspect, how to avoid the misunderstanding and the conflicts in the cross-cultural communication become the extremely urgent need for every country and every people. For long time, in the communication between China and Italy, not only scholar but also common people payed more attention to the differences between two countries, but a good Chinese proverb “seek common ground and reserve differences on certain issue” can be taken as a good instructor of the cross-cultural communication of the new century. How to use better the similarities and reduce the differences is a new challenge of all the Chinese and Italian researchers and the scholars.
