Da chi hai saputo del nostro gruppo? Where did you hear of us?


Cosa ti accomuna all'Italia? What is your affinity with Italy?

My parents were both from Lucca, Italy so I am a first generation Italian/American. We spoke only Italian at home and they kept the "old world" ways. They are long gone, but I want to retain my deep connection and passion for everything Italian. I have been to Italy five times and love everything about it. My youngest daughter was married in Lucca three years ago--it was an amazing wedding, attended by my Luchese cousins! I hope to visit next again summer and stay with my cousins in Lucca.

Qual'e' il livello del tuo Italiano? What level of Italian do you speak?

I never learned to read and write Italian, and though I was bilingual growing up, I don't speak it to anyone now, so I am afraid I will forget it! It is hard to say what level I speak. It might not be great, but I do speak it!


My name is Donna and I live in San Anselmo. I work in an elementary school and have two grown daughters who are married. I have have an adorable grandson!
