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

I love Italian food and wine, and love to cook and entertain at home. My great grandparents were from Sicily, and I have relatives who immigrated to the US from the Verona area.

How did you learn about PIAZZA ITALIA - The Washington, DC Italian Language & Culture MeetUp group?

I am part of other meetups with an interest in Italy.

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

Director Roberto Begnini's openhearted approach to life and love never fails to move me. Choosing among Italian cuisines and cities is like choosing a favorite among one's children-- impossible.

How long have you been interested in the Italian Language and why; at what level do you speak Italian; are there any other languages you speak or have an interest in?

I have been interested in Italian language and culture since the mid-1980's, when I first lived in Padova. My Italian is at the very basic level, and I am eager to improve.


I am a professional in the DC area with a fondness for all things Italian. I have lived in Padova and visited many parts of the country. I have been a casual student of the Italian language, but lately I am trying to improve my skills.
