Hello, my name is Alessandro, a native of Italy, but have lived in the US for 26 years, now a University Professor. I'll be relocating in Catania, Sicily, to teach at the University there, starting from this coming Fall 2016.
I have a 12 yr old son, who speaks only English (for now), and that seems the most urgent matter: what English taught school I can find for him, outside the Sigonella military base.
As a native Italian (though from Florence, not Catania) I can also advise new expats on certain questions they may have on any aspect of the country. Thanks!

I'm Mike, a native of the US who works from home and moves around a bit. I speak Italian to a decent degree. I've visited Italy over a dozen different times and would love to find a way to spend more time there. I keep trying to win the lottery to achieve this goal, but it never seems to quite pan out...

Hi, I am Thiago, Brazilian, 37 years old . My wife ( 25 ) and I are looking forword to moving to Italy next year and we are trying to figure out where to go. We are looking for a place where we would be able to have a quiet, but not boring life with our future children. We are looking for a culturally rich city and safety as well. One city that has called our attention is Como. Does anybody here live or used to live there?

Default Hello

Hello everyone, I am sort of new to this forum, having been on it several years ago, I left to join a more localised forum, but gravitated back here, needing a wider, and professionally run forum.I live in Abruzzo, have done for some time, I am a woman who lives on her own, does not drive, and still trying to improve my Italian! Although I like to join in with ex pat discussions and contribute where I can, on a day to day basis I make contact with many in my town, 99% do not speak English! I now do more than survive! I love it here, cannot imagine having to move back to the uk, it has not been easy, but all of my experiences have been useful. Just before I re joined I read the article about public transport. I chose my initial home/location after researching bus services, only to find they have been cut, and for 3,months of the year and other school holidays, the service is so restricted making it impossible for me to manage and have had to move. Anyway, I think that is enough for an introduction x

Welcome to the forum Shaun, I am sure there will be many people on the forum experienced with renovations. Firstly, where are you thinking of buying, secondly, it can be the most rewarding thing to do to create your own dolce vita. However, tread carefully, think about the money it would cost to renovate, what seems a cheap property can turn out very expensive. My advice, choose a region and explore, many agents do have cheaper properties on their books, but quite a few agencies promote more run down towns and villages, there are beautiful places not advertised, the world and his wife here in Italy are keen to sell or rent a house they have inherited, so no shortage of places and a good prices. I have found that local builders that the locals use to be the best price and quality of work, but can be frustratingly slow. Avoid using builders attached to the agency you are buying from, sadly many see the English as easy pickings. So pick a region, if you have time rent, tour around. It can be difficult and challenging, but the rewards are enormous

Hi I am Massimo living 50KM south of Rome. I have travelled a lot for many years for work study and tourism. I sometime use english as working language. I would like to meet other english speaking people.
I am not a young man let's say I'm mature. It would be nice to have some english speaking friends. Where I live there are many nice and interesting places to visit
