Hi, Anitamort,
How do you like the Nicotera Marina area? We are coming, my husband and I , in July to see both Calabrian coasts. We intend to live permanently in Italy once we find the area of Calabria we love. What can you tell me about your town? Things to do, roads, people, are the people welcoming to Americans. I am of Italian heritage and I do speak it, not so perfectly with the conjugations, etc, but I have been well understood. All of my grandparents were born in Sicily and I just have a craving, a need , to be in Italy for good. Luckily , my hubby is willing. So, I would lvoe a village with a lovely sense of community, the basic needs, bank, post office, supermarket, church and not too far from a large city. Would love to be near the water.
Any suggestions, Anitamort? Would love to hear from you.

Thanks,
Marianna

Hello, Gerardo,
How are you? My name is MaryAnn and I live in the U.S., in New York State.
Where do you live? Well, I am of Italian heritage and my husband and I are visiting Calabria for the first time in July to see if that is the area where we would like to live permanently. We would like to come within 2 years maybe.
What made you choose Calabria? What made you choose Catanzaro? What reasons? I am trying to learn as much as I can so that when I come July 11, I can carefully choose my measley 15 days of where to visit and not miss out.
Would love to hear from you. I was trying to chat with people who actually live there, because mainly I see individuals who have bought holiday homes.
Thanks,
MaryAn

Gerardo I moved to Calabria almost ten years ago.... I wouldn't still be here if I didn't like it! Everything is good- I too came speaking dialect (parents are from here) Calabrians find it strange for an inglese to speak the dialect better than they do (Italian is preferred now though) The good point outway the bad ones...
Getting things done at government offices can be a big pain: permessi di soggiorno take ages to come through! You shouldn't have problems if you have dual nationality. Check with your Italian consulate if you are on the A.I.R.E register. They would just change the address on their systems.
You said that you're bringing your two children... Choose wisely! Schools are a bit backward with many using blackboards and chalk still... I could go on.... What did you want to know in particular????

Hi, Anitamort, just saw this note from you. We want to live on the west coast for sure and probably not too far from where you are. I would love to be able to sit and chat and enjoy the sea and have some coffee with you! We are returning in a year, maybe less, to buy, now that we know it will be the west coast. I am reading about trouble living in Italy. Please tell me your opinion. Also, was it you that recommended a village near a city? That is what we feel is best, not far from a larger city, like 20 minutes, maybe from Scalea. Please share the negatives, not that I am that worried.
Thanks.
MaryAnn

Sorry but the question mark wont work on this!
Hi, Gerardo, I am in love with Calabria. We will be moving to Italy in about 2 years, but first must buy the home. It will be in Calabria.
Right now I need to see if I can get more reasonable quotes on shipping my stuff there. My husband and I try to save all we can and wow, these shipping companies are outrageous. We live in NY State in America. Have you learned of any shorter cheaper ways? When are you moving?

MaryAnn
