An in-depth look at a variety of aspects of life in Rome and Italy in general that uses humor as well as my 40 years of Italian expertise both to amuse and inform.
After 40 years in the Eternal City as a journalist and writer, I have seen it all. In this blog, I tell you what's going on in Rome and in Italy in general, explain the intricacies of Italian life, often by recounting the details of my daily comings and goings.
By addressing such matters as 'Why is the grocery store closed at lunchtime?' and 'Why are Italian drivers so ANGRY all the time?' 'Truly, Madly, Italy' tries to elucidate the often-complex and contradictory reality of Italian life, for would-be expats, and anyone with an interest in Italy. It's also a go-to blog for Italian-learning content and advice. We're a very long way from Under the Tuscan Sun but if you are interested in the language, the food, the characters, the social norms and daily challenges of expat life - you're in the right place!

Adventures in spiritual, New Age, and expat life in Rome, Italy.
I am neither French nor Italian, just a Canadian who showed up in Paris in 2002, got a job at a law firm and moved in with the Love of My Life (the Frenchman). In 2004, our daughter (the Bambina) entered the world and in 2006, the Frenchman's employer gave him marching orders to move to Rome. So here I am living like a French expatriate in Italy. Welcome to the life of a Canadian gone European.
