What is your favorite Italian film, book, food, music, city or vacation?

Even though I spent a fantastic vacation at an incredible Tuscan villa for me my favorite thing is to visit my cousins who are mostly in Bologna. This is also the city in which my parents met at the medical school of Bologna.

What is your interest or connection with the Italian language or culture? Are you of Italian heritage?

My parents came to the US when they were in their 30's. My older brother was born in Italy but my younger brother and I were born here. All of my relatives are in Europe, primarily in Italy.

What level of Italian do you speak? How do you use the language now?

I would say I speak at a moderate to advanced level. I am taking private lessons twice per week.

How do you hope to use the Italian language? Do you have a goal?

I would like to become truly fluent. Some of my goals would be to spend more time in Italy and perhaps to have children who spoke Italian.


Ciao a tutti! Mi presento Davide, un radiologo originario della costa est. I miei genitori, d'origine italiana, si sono trasferiti negli Stati Uniti quando avevano 35 anni. Sono appassionato del bellissimo suono della lingua italiana!
