Si. My father was born in Bitonto in the outskirts of Bari, Puglia. My mother's parents emigrated from Valle Lungo, Sicily when they were young.
I have been to Italy many times, hiking different regions each time. I've seen Cinque Terre, Puglia, Umbria, Eastern Sicily and the Ligurian Islands, Western Sicily and the Egadi Islands as well as having spent time in Savona, Rome, Venice and Florence.
I would say "principiante" since I understand and speak very little.
Hello. I have loved (and lived) the Italian culture my entire life. Unfortunately I have never mastered the language and would love to!
