An Expat Talks about Living in
What is the name of the city or town that you are reporting on?
How long have you lived there?
What activities, clubs and organizations would you recommend to newcomers to help them meet others?
There aren't many organizations for expats as it is a smaller area of Italy, however the local bars often have live music and activities, so going out to meet people is an option.
In terms of religious, racial, economic and cultural diversity, are the people of this city or town diverse? Are they accepting of differences? Describe.
The people here aren't very diverse as it is a smaller town. There is a small amount of cultural diversity however such as Morrocans, Albanians, Romanians and Asians. The people seem to be very accepting of other cultures. When meeting someone new they seem curious as to where you are from, and are generally very friendly open minded people.
What are the main industries in this city? What types of career opportunities commonly exist? How do most people find new jobs?
The main industries are farming and dairy.
In general, what are peoples' priorities in this city? For example, do lives revolve around work, family, socializing, sports, etc.?
Peoples lives here revolve mainly around family, friends and work. They are very hard workers however have tight knit families and spend alot of time with friends.
If a friend of yours was thinking of moving to this city or town from far away, what other advice would you give them.
I would recommend this area for somone looking for a nice friendly comfortable area to live in that is near a city but also somewhat in the country/mountains. Beautiful place!
On the Italy Expat Forum
Twenty-two years ago Tracey Gambarotta generously gave her time to help with the repair of a family tomb in Genoa's Staglieno Cemetery. I would like to re-establish contact with her but don't know how. She was interviewed on ExpatExchange a while ago about a new Italo-British association but neither the tel. no. not the email given seems to be valid. Does anyone know how to find her? Is she still in Genoa?
Our situation here in France is not as bad as yours in Italy and for what it's worth we send you warm greetings and 'bon courage'

Voting from Italy
Rather than to devolve into political discourse in this forum (something we’ve clearly avoided up to just now), the better topic might be how to vote in US or UK elections from Italy. How much lead time is needed? Where does one get a ballot? How does one keep a voter registration active from afar? Any other issues in this process? In this way we can dispense with correcting the political score (someone here said what good would it do anyway) and just vote in the way it all gets resolved in a democracy. If this becomes a political forum, I am so outta here.

I'm stuck! Lockdown
Anyone else stuck in Italy at the moment because of no flights?
Uk borders are closing I think.
When do you think all this will pass?
