Mantova (Lombardy)

Mantova is a town in Lombardy, capital of the province of the same name. In 2016, Mantua became Italian Capital of Culture, as chosen by the Italian Government on 27 October 2015. In 2017, Mantua will also be European Capital of Gastronomy, included in the Eastern Lombardy District. In 2007, Mantua's centro storico (old town) and Sabbioneta were declared by UNESCO to be a World Heritage Site. Mantua's historic power and influence under the Gonzaga family has made it one of the main artistic, cultural, and especially musical hubs of Northern Italy and the country as a whole. It is the place where the composer Monteverdi premiered his opera L'Orfeo and where Romeo was banished in Shakespeare's play Romeo and Juliet.

SPESE CONDOMINIALE - Riscaldamento / Heating

I was hoping to get some advice on the spese condominiale for the apartment we're renting in Bergamo.

Hi! I am a British citizen, Italian resident. My passport is in my married name but all my Italian documents (C.I., Cod. fiscale, patente etc.) are in my maiden name. This has never caused any problems until now.
