I'm sorry but this is complete BS and you sound like a hater, even if it's unintentional. The Italians invented diving? Please point to me when this happened, there's no one origin of it, it appeared in southern Europe and South America first because of a longer tradition of close dribbling and playing with the ball on the ground. If anything it started off in South America. The Germans have been diving as long as the Italians have.
