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

World traveler, student of foreign policy, and a big fan of coffee!

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

Recommendation from my Italian language instructors.

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

Mi piacciono... Primo Levi, "Cinema paradiso," l'inno di AS ROMA, cannoli, e Roma!

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?

My great grandparents emigrated from Calabria and Abruzzo in the early 1900s, so I've always wanted to connect with my roots. I lived in Rome for two years and picked up the language and I hope to retain it. On a scale of 5, I probably speak between 3 and 4. I also have some French and Arabic.


Hi! I'm a young italoamericano just looking to try something new and make some new friends!
