I fell in love with Italian through singing opera and studying the rich cultural history. I've been to Italy several times but its been a while and I've gotten a bit rusty so this sounds like it's worth a try. "Corri, vola in Italia, o Pittore, o Poeta, o Scultore, o Architetto, e voi uomini di genio di qualunque classe vi siate, quello e` il paese che sviluppera` i vostri talenti."
Book: Pinocchio (only one I've read); Film: Divorce-Italian style, Sicilian Girl, Ciao Professore & most of the Don Camillo Films; Composers: Verdi, A. Scarlatti, Bellini & Pergolesi; Musicians: Pavarotti, Corelli, Verdi; Food: Everything tastes better in Italian; Favorite City: Firenze. "La perennita` della sua Natura, dopo avervi sorpresi, vi riempira` di coraggio e d'ardire."
I've been studying now for 3 years. Have used Pimsler, online study, grammar books, etc. - but nothing helped as much as a few long stays in Italy. I'm also familiar with German, and I am slowly learning Russian and Korean ... I'm also still learning English, a lifelong project:)

Cari amici, buongiorno. Seguitate a stare allegramente, seguitate a suonar, o buona gente.
Best group of Italians in DC every time!
