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

"I have lots of adventures to share about my travels. I would like to be around others with the same passion."

How did you learn about our group?

I was told about MeetUp at my Italian language school in Siena, by a fellow student from Baltimore. I also have a friend who goes to the Virginia MeetUp

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

My favorite foods are fagioli, verdure, formaggio, risotto, Vino Brunello and cappuccino. My current favorite book is The Silent Duchess by Dacia Maraini. Italian film: "La Strada" Federico Fellini, Laura Pausini for music. Siena (my part time home).

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

I have heard Italian all my life, my grandmother spoke only Italian to my mother. Unfortunately I was not taught Italian, so I had to learn on my own. Languages don't come easy to me, I now speak at the intermediate level. It is a life work for me.

What kind of events would you most enjoy?

No answer yet


"Ciao, I love to travel and spend 3 months a year in Tuscany. Both sides of my family are from Italy and I enjoy exploring the areas where my grandparents are from. Working on my Italian is a life long learning experience."
