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

No answer yet

How did you learn about our group?

I found you online.

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

This is hard to answer... I actually read a lot of "British" novels translated into Italian so if anyone is interested I'd be happy to share. I love Cinema Paradiso, Zucchero, Eros Ramazzotti, Negramaro. My favorite cities are the small ones.

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

I've been speaking Italian fluently for about 18 years both for fun and for work. I also studied Spanish, German and Russian, plus I've picked up some French, Turkish, Greek and Portuguese in my travels for work.

What kind of events would you most enjoy?

Ciao - sono Allyson! I speak Italian fluently, using it daily for my job in the ceramic and marble industry. I look forward to more "fun" conversations, as opposed to work talk :)

What Allyson is saying about this Meetup Group

It was great to know that there are so many other people out there who love Italian like I do. This was a great setting - very casual and easy to talk to other people.
