My husband is retired from USNavy and soon will retire from a second career. As such we have 3 lifetime incomes, plus modest investments. We have never been able to visit Europe to see everything we'd like to see. We plan to sell our home in US and thought about basing ourselves initially in Italy, traveling by train to see other countries, and buying a small used car for short trips around Italy countyside. We had thought to rent fully furnished for a year til we decide how to proceed further in settling permanently. We do not wish to be in Rome, Milan or touristy areas for living. We are entitled to use US military hospital/clinic/drs overseas. but also planned to purchase travel health plan. From your posts, it appears we are dreaming? due to 90 day restrictions on residency. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

My blog lists, step by step, everything we did in order to get our ER visa, Permesso, Resident Cards, Health Cards and even car. I have no ads, nor am I selling anything. Just leaving the paperwork trail.

Old pro: Thank you for clarifying. I had been looking high and low to find out how to renew the D visa. Now I understand why i couldn’t find that answer. So many bits and pieces to this puzzle flying around in theses posts.

You can do all the art you want. Selling is the problem. Chances are you will never get caught selling but keep in mind that Italy has financial police that make random checks. If you have a stall or tent, they may stop by. If you're selling privately, chances of being found out are small. But consequences could be severe. Same with teaching. You can teach privately (off the books) but not publicly. It's a risk manegment problem.
