1.e4 is fine,but I think 1.d4 is better,but Morphy and Fischer says ''1.e4 is best by test''.
This is best piece devlopment and fast attacking,but isn't my favourite position.
Devlopment for black too.
Italian Game is best for beginers,but I can play 1.d4 and this is ok.
White have a strong center and active pieces.
