I love Italian food and wine, and love to cook and entertain at home. My great grandparents were from Sicily, and I have relatives who immigrated to the US from the Verona area.
I am part of other meetups with an interest in Italy.
Director Roberto Begnini's openhearted approach to life and love never fails to move me. Choosing among Italian cuisines and cities is like choosing a favorite among one's children-- impossible.
I have been interested in Italian language and culture since the mid-1980's, when I first lived in Padova. My Italian is at the very basic level, and I am eager to improve.
I am a professional in the DC area with a fondness for all things Italian. I have lived in Padova and visited many parts of the country. I have been a casual student of the Italian language, but lately I am trying to improve my skills.
What a great group! Friendly, welcoming, and fun.
