I was forgetting you were from the States cos it's so much easier for us Europeans - we're supposed to be one big happy family and to be able to travel and settle freely within the EU.

I'm near Asti - about 20 minutes south from there, and about an hour from Torino. Maybe if you do come we can meet up.

I'd like to go to Lucca and Viareggio as well - we may go down there for a few days in the summer - and do Pisa and Pompei at the same time. Last summer we spent a few days in the Aosta Valley and also drove across to Venice for a week., but this year we seem to have adopted a cat so it's going to be a bit harder to just get in the car and drive off for a week.

Do let me know how you get on in the coming weeks

Amanda

Hi Amanda! I understand your language frustrations, I was the same way when we lived there. In fact, the only person in our entire neighborhood that spoke any english was a 13 year old girl! But we still all some how managed to have long conversations with our limited words. It was a fantastic experience! Our daughter was 2 when we left, and she had mostly Italian babysitters, and she understood everything. My biggest regret was not making more of an effort to better understand the language since we knew we would be moving eventually. Perhaps there is someone in your area that would be willing to trade services, to learn to speak English and teach you conversational Italian in return?

Hi Dee! How exciting your up coming year sounds. I would ask at the consolate if you have to have the return flight to get the visa. Though, to be honest, they would be hard pressed to make me leave after being there for a year...... I'd never come back to the states! I'm not sure what your current plan is for which locations when, but I wouldn't miss Carnivale in Venice! It's a bit chilly, but worth every second. I'd probably aim for Christmas in Rome, just to hit Christmas Mass, even if your not Catholic.

Oh, I'm making myself "home" sick!
Jennifer

I'm sorry I didn't reply before.... somehow I missed your post. Lucky you in Lucca! I spent time in Lucca and Viareggio when my Mum married an Italian with homes in both places, and I was dragged along on the honeymoon as an sulky and difficult 13 year old!!! I return and enjoy it this time, with my daughter who is now the same age but not as belligerent as I was.

PM me a bit more about yourself?

Amanda

Hi everyone. My name is Robby and I have lived most of my life in Australia, however I currently live in Manizales, Colombia. I am planning to travel to Italia (perhaps Pescara, Abruzzo or Le Marche) in April 2012. I don't really won't to work although I will have to. Does anyone know of any English gigs in or near Pescara? I am a writer and need to get my books to the publisher ASAP. Any information and friendships would be much appreciated. My wife and two pups will follow after I get established.
Thanks all

Default Introduction.

Hello everyone. Great to join you here in spirit.

My name is Rich D'Amato, I am an Italian American originally from New jersey, my wife is Ella a Polish National.

We are currently living in Cuenca Ecuador, where we have lived for approximately 3 years and enjoying it to a large extent, but have recently had the urge to explore the possibilities of life in Italia. I am uncertain as to my/her statuses given Poland's E.U. participation, into which we have yet to make inquiry

We have spent 3 months in Italy in 2004 and that is the extent of our experience there.

My grandparents emigrated from Liguria through Ellis Island in 1900 and lived in Little Italy in New York City. until 1908, when they moved to New Jersey.

Ella is quite a a good linguist and my Spanish is pretty good, but I am not fluent.(Although I was mistaken for a Spaniard several times during our last trip).

We are interested in living at higher elevations in a relatively small city or nearby towns.
We will probably visit Le Marche and the surrounding areas for a few months this fall.

i would characterize ourselves as quiet, respectful people who seek a serene, uncomplicated lifestyle, which we have found here in Ecuador as well.

Still, there are vast differences between the cultures and I am inclined to think I would be more resonant with the Italian culture. Time and experience will tell.

Unfortunately, I believe my grandfather renounced his Italian citizenship when he entered the U.S., as he was wont to repeat "I'ma neva go back!" with great frequency.

I don't know how to go about the process of checking this, but plan to start some initial investigation.

Cheers to All,

Rich
