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

I'm a third-generation Italian-American. My grandfather was from a small village in Piedmont and my grandmother's parents were from Pesaro.

How did you learn about our group?

I was a member of the Italian Language Meetup group in Hollywood before moving to DC, so I looked up the local group when I arrived here. I haven't been disappointed.

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

Book: "Lo Spirito della Sabbie Gialle" by Mbacke Gadji. Film: anything not by Fellini. Musician: Fabrizio de André. Food: cioppino. City: Padova.

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

I've been learning Italian since about 1998, though only informally at this point. Like many other folks I've met in the group, I also have some knowledge of other Romance languages: Spanish and Brazilian Portuguese.

What kind of events would you most enjoy?
