I'm a third-generation Italian-American. My grandfather was from a small village in Piedmont and my grandmother's parents were from Pesaro.
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.
Book: "Lo Spirito della Sabbie Gialle" by Mbacke Gadji. Film: anything not by Fellini. Musician: Fabrizio de André. Food: cioppino. City: Padova.
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.

Ciao a tutti, mi chiamo Nicola. Partecipevo nel gruppo dal suo inizio. Sono sempre contento di conoscere altre persone che si interessino della lingua e cultura italiana!
