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

I am 25 and would love to meet other young Italians in DC. Of course, it is always interesting to meet other people who love Italy of any age!

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


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

Book - don't have one. Film - Johnny Stecchino, Roberto Benigni is amazing! Food - my dad's bolognese sauce. City - so many are special to me - Rome, Sorrento, but I will never forget living in Sanremo.

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?

I've been interested in learning the language since college. My dad speaks, but he never taught me. I speak at a modest intermediate level (I probably read and write better than I speak). I have an interest in Spanish, but I have never learned it.


I really want to start speaking Italian again. I lived in San Remo and Venice, each for 4 months, and started to speak well, but I haven't spoken in about 2 years. Both my parents are Italian, so naturally I love the culture and the food!

What Ellen D. is saying about this Meetup Group

The group is a great way to meet new people and practice Italian at the same time! The members are really friendly, and it's a fantastic to hear the experiences of others and share your experiences with them.
