Is it hard to make English speaking friends in Piedmont?

Hi!  We will be starting Italian classes online and hope to do an immersion school for a month upon arrival...but still, I don't expect our Italian to be very good for a long time.  Is it difficult to make friends in Italy who speak English?  How does one tap into the Expat community there?  We are looking in the Asti area.  Thanks for your insights!

@rubytoes11 Hi there myself and my partner have bought a house outside Asti we will be traveling over and back from Ireland while we renovate it this year be lovely to catch up with other English speaking people in the area

InterNations and MeetUp organise many events in Turin and Piedmont, mostly in English best Olivia
