What's living in Italy like?

There are many ways to answer that question. Living in Italy can certainly be frustrating; it can be confusing; it can be very irritating, but, there are things about Italy that are immensely rewarding, enlightening and a total joy.

The truth about life in Italy is that the experience is made up of a lot of subtle influences that work together to create a unique balance. There is something that feels right about living here. The way that people live their lives, the work/life balance, the family unit, the warmth between friends and the genuine appreciation of quality and beauty make daily life a pleasure.

Italians also have a great work ethic. They are extremely hard-working and concientious and they are always happy to live in the moment. If you are living in Italy, this means that when you go into any shop or any bar, you are assured of genuine attention and interest, without getting the feeling that the person you are talking to would rather be somewhere else!
