Week 63


Silvia I was born and raised on lake Como, I graduated as a doctor in veterinary medicine in Milan and I’ve worked as a veterinarian for pets for almost 2 years. In the meantime I met the guy who now is my husband, an American officer of the US army, while he was on holiday in Italy. So I left everything behind me and now I’m living in Texas. I moved here in November so I’m still studying for being certified as a vet here too and trying to handle this new life. I love travelling (it’s so expensive here in the US ouch!), riding horses, cuddling with my doggy and hiking with my hubby.


Week 62


KeithCiao!  My name is Keith.  I studying for my Masters degree in international relations at St. John’s University in Rome.  I have been living in Italy for almost two years.  I have visited Rome more than a dozen times over the years as well as other places in Italy.  I am Italian-American so every trip to Italy is a way for me to get in touch with my roots and learn more about the culture and country that my family left all those years ago.  I also run a successful blog called “Parola del Giorno” with my friend, Giuseppe, where people learning Italian can improve their vocabulary and learn about Italian grammar.

JosephHi my name is Joe I’m an english teacher and I live in Sicily, in a medieval hill top village near Taormina called Forza d’Agro which is known for the filming of the 1972 Godfather films which were filmed in this town and a few other nearby locations. Sicily is a very interesting place and  it was the birthplace of my paternal grandparents. I decided that I wanted to trace my roots, so I came to live in Sicily and to know Sicily, its people and its diverse culture.
