Hi Debby,

I am an Italian citizen, but I was born and raised in America. My grandfather came from Samarate (VA), near Milano, and I am registered with A.I.R.E. in Samarate. I want to move to Italy with my family, but I've never been there and I don't know anything about the system. Would you be able to answer some questions about getting settled in Italy? Also, would I be accepted as an Italian since I have Italian citizenship, or would I be considered a foreigner since I grew up in America?
.
You've never been but want to move? Start with a long vacation during the winter. Come over Jan and stay until the end of March. Don't pick a tourist town but the sort of place you would like to live in. If you can manage during the winter then consider the move.

Do you speak Italian?

this is exactly what we are doing in september 2010. we are planning to have enough to live on for 3 months and explore the area we are staying in and look for work if we find work we will stay for 12 months and enrol our children into school.
We want to live in Toscana somewhere where I can get work teaching English (preferably private tutoring).

Hey Georgia,

surely you can get your driving licence here in italy.
You must only have the entry visa or similar, I think that u cannot get the driving licence if u'r here as a tourist.

Anyway, I have friends that are getting the driving lic just in this days and I'll be able to give u some correct informations next days.

Bye and sorry for my english :eek:
Hola Debby, i'm an italian lawyer i can tell you that it's necessary get also international driving licence for driving cars and bikes

Dear Ramandeep ( a lot of indian citizen live in italy ) i think for you is better to get a marriage in Germany because the last italian law ( legge sulla sicurezza ) fordib marriage when one of two is irregular without permesso di soggiorno.

Looking For A Business Partner/Job

Hi Debby

Thank you for offering to help. Appreciate it.

I am semi-retired and I'm planning to move to italy and would like some information on:
1. Job prospects - anything even housecleaning will do. I have experience in foreign exchange and would like information about administration/customer service jobs at English establishments - accommodation/travel/estate agents.
2. Also interested in finding a business partner (gift shop) - African/Bushman arts like painted ostrich eggs, painted dishes, woven baskets, art, figurines, etc.

I am looking at moving to Abruzzo/Milan.

Please, your advise would be valued and appreciated!

Best regards.

Jane

Hola Debbie, Im English and I have lived in Spain for nearly 6 years. I would like to know, what are the Italian people like in general? Do they welcome the British people to their country? Are they open minded etc? Any information will be most appreciated. Saludos Nicola

Hi Debby

I need some help in finding out how much a one bedroom furnished appartment would cost in South Italy, mainly Campobasso. I am trying to put together a budget so that I can move there for 6 months to a year. Can you help me?

six months is a short term rental. If you want furnished I think you're stuck with something aimed at student. There is a soloaffitti in Campobasso IIRC. They should have a website.

Do you actually mean Campobasso proper? Or the province?

I've no idea what costs are at the moment but you certainly find a normal unfurinshed rental for less then 500 Euros. A small to midsized apartment.

try casa.it. It is in italian, but google translate is sufficient to give you an idea of what it says. send lots of emails to realestate in the area they are very helpful. I have just looked up some on casa.it and they have 2 bed apartments unfurnished from 350euros a month +utilities.

Apartment Insurance

Debby

We live in the UK but have an apartment in Milan which we use a lot. Can you direct me to some Italian Insurance Companies who insure apartments and their contents. We have been quoted £180 per annum in the UK and wondered if we could get it cheaper in Italy.

Also, do you know where we could source some contemporary art work/mirrors for the walls? There seems to be no middle ground i.e. it's either very expensive or Ikea! We'd like something in between.

Thanks

Madelaine

Hello friends,
I see Debbi hasn't posted for a long time now, maybe she has no time. Anyway, since a lot of people visit the discussion, perhaps someone will have advice for me.
We are interested in moving to Italy and registering as self-employed in Italy. Since we are EU citizens, there should be no administrative or legal obstacles for that. More specifically, we are curious about financial parameters of that, in short how much would be sufficient for the initial several months there, untill we start finding customers for our businesses.

Thanks in advance,
Mary

Mary what line of business are you in? My husband and myself currently are living in the USA but are UK citizens thinking of moving to Italy, I believe we are going to travel there in September. My husband loves north coast but I am thinking that is the most expencive area to live in. Do you already have a property there?
