I spent two weeks in Italy in Oct. 2005. Even with a broken foot and countless mishaps, I had a great time.
Right now I want to get the books of Andrea Camilleri, on which the Commissario Montalbano series of TV films is based. Garlic spaghetti! Domenico Modugno! Too many films to choose one. Perugia, Rome, all of Italy.
Since I started learning Spanish in the 7th grade. My Italian is fluent but my vocabulary is incomplete. My Spanish and Portuguese are fluent, my French halting. Also know a little Romanian, Polish, Latvian, Arabic.

In 1973, I studied Italian in Perugia and Rome. I'm a professional translator in Washington, but don't use Italian at work, so I really miss speaking it more often.
A very congenial and interesting group with a lot to talk about.
