Hi Petra,
My name is David. I currently live in the United States in Las Vegas.
I want to move to Italy.  I have visited there 4 times before.
I am retired and only receive 1700.00 a month from retirement. Do you think I could afford to live in Italy?
What is the best place to live for that kind of money?
I appreciate any input you can send me.
Thank you!

Hi to all.
My name is Emiliano and I am from Rome, where I currently live.
I am a journalist and a translator, very passionate about traveling and getting in touch with other cultures.
I am always ready for a walk, a coffee, or a glass of wine and I like to socialize with most people, regardless of nationality, age, gender, religious belief or political faith. The only people I wouldn't accept to deal with are racists, sexists, haters in general.

Hello,you are living in Italy? Maybe you know some places where can ir find fruit picking jobs? :)

Hello,you are living in Italy? Maybe you know some places where can ir find fruit picking jobs? :)

Ciao. :)
Fruit picking jobs in november? Uhm... not sure.
In this season it is possible to get hired in the "vendemmia" (the traditional picking of grapes for making wine). The only problem is that these employers usually require you to have some language skills, because in most cases they don't speak anything except Italian.
Also, in most cases they pay miserable sums of money, the work is quite hard, long hours with not much rest, and it only lasts some days. The good part is that you are entitled to eat as much fruits as you like.
But, honestly, if you are looking for a small job, I would suggest you to focus on something else, like for example restaurants and bars, often looking for waiters and waitresses. Or, if you are just looking for any job, babysitting, dog-sitting or ironing is quite easy to find even if you don't speak the local language well.
I hope it can help... and in case you need more details, just let me know and I will try to give you more info.

I have been in Torino for over a month now and loving it. lol. If you are in Torino, you can hook me up for a chat or so exploring the city. Ciao

Hi. My name is Bev. I am a 64 year old single woman with two dogs. I currently live and work in New York. I am from the South (Louisiana, Tennessee, Florida) but came to New York 15 years ago for a job. I will retire next summer. I have no family ties, so no particular place in the U.S. is meaningful for me to retire to. I visited Italy two summers ago, and have a good friend, a native, there. She is moving to Umbria next spring. I am considering retiring near her. I'm just beginning to think about this possibility, and would appreciate anyone's input on any aspect of moving to and living in Umbria as a US expat.

Hello every body ,
I am Br. Linus Maria Ominyi by name , a
devout Christian in Nigeria.

At present, I am in Nigeria. I am
planning to move  to Milan to
study Italian language. But, I need
to make friends so that it may be
easier for me. Please, did anybody no Italian language school in Milan or around Italy that I can study? I look forward to hear.

hi louise it me Pamela I will come to Italy on 8 November give me your phone number and when arrive I call  you ok I need to work I am a very hard worker ok see you soon god bless

Hello Bev I‘m Fernando living in Naples Italy.I‘m originally from Sri Lanka and if you want any help or advice,actually I would like very much to do it.bye

Hi Bev, my husband and I have lived in Italy 2 different years. This year now and the year 2009. After talking with expats here the biggest issues are medical help, taxation seems something always needs to be paid. Utilities are higher than the US and you need to have contacts it will take a while to make friends with neighbors. Understand and learn the language. I love it here and could stay from April through November but would miss lots from home. Bring non prescription drugs no such thing as cvs or walgreens here only pharmacies with no drug brands you recognize. If you are in great health can stand the test of time to prove friendship and have low expectation of occomodations your good. We spend close to 2500 per month to rent our home standard here. So much beauty and you do need s car.

Hi Everyone,

I'm a Filipino-American and have been in Italy for a few months now. I have been working in the restaurant industry back in the US. Now I want to help my family business of running a group of Italian restaurants and decided to get as much exposure to the culture and cuisine here in Italy.

So far I've been in and around the Florence area. Now I'll be staying in Palermo for a few months. I'm still trying to learn the language. It would be nice to meet some other English speakers here in Sicily.

Hey all

     my name is John,I'm originally from England.  I've been living in Bologna with my Italian wife for the last 3 yrs. I spent 25 yrs in the construction industry as an electrician when i was in the UK. In that time i made a gradual transition to becoming an artist, mostly custom painting work, using an airbrush.

Now i am a full time artist working for various companies throughout the world. It has also given me the opportunity to from time to time to work for Lamborghini at their prototype development facility on some of the hottest cars on the planet :) It's always great meeting up with fellow Brits if you are in the neighborhood.
