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

I recently retired from the Foreign Service and am enjoying discovering and rediscovering so many interesting opportunities in the DC area.

How did you learn about our group?

From a colleague

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

Hard to pick one city but Rome and Venice are at the top of the list; tortellini a la panna; gelato; let's not forget great art!

At what level do you speak Italian and do you speak other languages?

I have forgotten most of my spoken Italian but still understand simple conversations. I speak better Spanish having spent recently 4 years in Mexico.

What kind of events would you most enjoy?

No answer yet


I lived in Italy from[masked] and was reasonably (but not totally) fluent but I haven't spoken Italian since then. I would like to regain my fluency so I can enjoy Italy more when I visit it. Plus Italian is a lovely language and a great culture!
