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

I'm a dual citizen with Italia.

How did you learn about our group?

Through Meetup

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

I'm deeply connect to the Uffizi in Firenze. I don't know what that means except that I feel at home when I am there. Art has always been my muse. My great-grandparents are originally from Lucca and possibly this may have something to do with my deep connection to Firenze and the Uffizi. I know it's as though I know myself when I'm there.

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

I grew up listening to and speaking Italian. I have had periods where I have been fluent but now I have lost so much vocabulary that I would like to dive in again. Where's the time? This is what I need to sort out.

What kind of events would you most enjoy?

Film, music, art, history.

Introduction

I'm Italian-American having grown up in Boston. My grandparents, aunts and uncle fled Mussolini and fascism to come to the US.
