Default hi

Hi,

I moved over to Abruzzo with my partner (now husband!) and baby daughter in July 2014.

Looking to meet those in the know

Jess

Hello all,
Am moving, with my husband, to Italy as soon as our house here in UK is sold. We both have extensive ties with the country: I lived and worked in Florence during the 'anni di piombo' 1970s, and continue working with Italian to this day (as a translator), while my husband computerised the Rome bus timetables and buses back in the 1980s.
Not sure where we want to end up, but basically the best house, with the best view, in the best village, not too far from an airport that we can financially manage. Casa.it and idealista.it are keeping us busy with email alerts, so we know what is out there. Seems like we shall probably not be going further south than Siena. We have too many friends we will wish to visit in mainland Europe to want to venture too far south. The house will also be an investment for our own children, so this will be borne in mind.
Just wanted to say 'ciao' to you all, and get to know some of you a bit better once we get ourselves settled in Italia.
Ciao!

Default Winter Motorhome sites Lake Como

Hi to all our expats in stunning Italy from (bonnie) Scotland. We are a mature-ish (!) couple moving end Nov to Lake Como (north near Colico) for husband's work contract and have a motorhome and 2 dogs. Looking for a winter berth place 1st Dec to 1st Feb (at least as contract may extend to 1 year). I've searched online and found a few but they seem to be closed in the winter - any suggestions / recommendations please?
Bob & Betty

Greetings to everyone. My name is Giorgio (George). My mothers parents were Italian and for many, many years I only knew part of my family's story. My Grandfather was killed when my mother was 13. Very long story about that... Relatives came to USA in late 1800's and early 1900's and since most of my relatives have died, so many of their stories are gone. Several years ago I went back to this large box of photo's my mother kept and then passed down to me, and stared at those pictures and kept asking.....who are these people? Some, but only a few, I knew and it kept bugging me.
So I decided to start my Family Genealogy project and it became a 'DRUG" that consumed me for a couple years. As a result I obtained my Dual Citizenship with Italy and USA, which was challenging, but I love challenges! So, my wife and I have our Dual Citizenship. I have been to Italy twice, 2012 and 2013. Located relatives in N. Italy and stayed with them. Have established family contact with cousins in Italy and so much more to come....
I have retired (or should I say moved on to other things) and always looking for exciting adventures and have a plan on moving to Italy, but not sure when. Just depends on opportunities, etc. Also, a musician (drummer) and currently in band. Music is huge to me.
So, not sure when my or our next trip to Italy will be, but hopefully within the next year.
If I can be of any help with questions about anything I have gone through, please shoot me a message and I will do my best to help. Sometimes it is just something small that gets you stuck, and you need a 3rd party to help see "outside the box" so to speak.
Look forward to this site, as I have been on others and found them to be very helpful if everyone follows the rules.

Hi there. Steve and Sanja (pronounced "SAN-ya") here. We're Canadian expats. We're retired and have been living in Monaco for the last five years, but we have a place in Arezzo. We're in the midst of organizing a move, as we've decided to take up residence in Italy. We're hoping to be down there before Christmas, but there's a lot of bureaucratic stuff to muddle through first....

Anyway, I'm a retired English prof/lawyer/writer and Sanja is a retired businessperson. We're in our early sixties, active, and interested in music, art and writing. We're also into good food and (naturally) vino. We're hoping to meeting other expats in the Arezzo area.

Looking forward to making some new friends..

Default Living in Perugia

Bethany,
Great to read your info about living in Italy.
How do you like Perugia and why did you and your husband settle in that area?

My family is from the Parma area, between Parma and the Western Coast.

Always like to hear what people think go living in different areas and why. We are retired, so when we come to Italy, it might be for 6 months at a time until we decide where we fit.

Look forward in hearing from you.

Thanks

Girogio

Hi Everyone,

My name is Paolo. I'm not Italian, it's purely coincidental that I have an Italian name. I'm actually Filipino-American.

I'm here in Italy to learn more about the food and culture. I am in the restaurant business and together with my family we operate a group of casual Italian restaurants.

I was in the Florence area at first and now I'm in Palermo and will be here for a while.

Although I'm trying to learn how to speak Italian, it's not easy. It would be nice to meet some other English speakers here in Palermo.

Thanks.


Paolo

Hi all, my husband and I have just moved to Trieste for his work. We are both English speaking (from the UK) and trying to learn Italian (very slowly). I am currently not working but would hopefully like to find something in the future. Hope to meet some people to chat to regarding everything as this is all very new to me
