I would like to learn the language and travel in the country. I also would like to enjoy some Italian wines with folks who are like-minded.
My favorite Italian City is probably Rome although I prefer the smaller towns and the country - especially Lake Como, Tuscany and Cinque Terra. I have many favorite foods - too hard to pick one. Ny favorite Italian musician was my father who played the violin and bass. He actually played in a band that backed up Frank Sinatra at the now-defunct Rustic Cabin in the Palisades, NJ.
I always have wanted to learn but have never acted on it. I am a beginner although I understand a few words.
I was born in NJ, grew up in Baltimore and now live in DC. My father was Italian and was born in NYC and his parents were from Napoli. I currently am the executive director for Learn to Ski and Snowboard Month. I have skied in Italy.
I got there late but it was a beautiful evening. They didn't have my name at the entrance but it was not a problem.
