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

Non parlo bene l'italiano ma parlo con entusiasmo!

How did you learn about our group?

I just searched Meetups

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

I have no favorite Italian book because I can barely read Italian. Umberto Eco is the only Italian author I have read, in English. My favorite Italian song is Nessun Dorma, of course. My favorite Italian food? There's not much I don't like, and I've only been to Italy once, which was glorious, but on a tour and my favorite city was Florence, or San Gemigniano, but only because it was so outstandingly medieval. If I'd had a chance to see other Medieval cities, perhaps I would have the same rush. And truth be told, when I was in the crypt of St. Francis in Assisi, I could feel his spirit, and I'm not lying and so...Assisi was pretty magical too.

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

Posso parlare un po. Ho studiato italiano per un paio di mesi. Io parlo francese e spagnolo entrambi i quali ho studiato all'universita.

What kinds of events would you most enjoy?

I'd like to start with some get togethers to just speak Italian and see where it goes. I have two children and I live out in Great Falls, so it can be hard to get to things around their schedules.


Hi, I'm just looking for friends with whom to to speak Italian. I have big Italian dreams that include Firenze and magical alleyways.
