What else would you like to tell our group about yourself?

I enjoy watching Italian films, reading about Italian history and culture, and discussing Italian current events.

How did you learn about PIAZZA ITALIA - The Washington, DC Italian Language & Culture MeetUp group?

Via the Casa Italiana language school.

What is your favorite Italian book/author, Italian film, Italian song/musician, Italian food, Italian city?

City - Fierenze Recent film - Tutta La Vita Davanti Book - An Italian Education, by Tim Parks (in English, not fluent enough yet to read in Italian)

How long have you been interested in the Italian Language and why; at what level do you speak Italian; are there any other languages you speak or have an interest in?

Active interest - just over a year, when I took a course in Italian for Travelers at Casa Italiana to prepare for our trip. Followed with beginners courses. Speak at beginner level at this time.

Introduction

My wife and I made a trip to Italy this March, saw Rome, Florence, Venice, Quero Belluno, Milano, and met relatives of my mother's family. We want to return in a few years and spend more time seeing the country and enjoying its culture.

What theisjj is saying about this Meetup Group

Very active schedule of events.
