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.

Hello,

Can anyone help me - especially any Australians.

 

I have an Australian Client for whom I refurbished their house on Lake Como, now they are living in Italy for over 12 months, and in their Pension years.

 

@NewComor asks:

Hi,

I have just bought an apartment in Italy and I am feeling a little lost and helpless.. I am not planning to move to Italy for another two or three years, so I would definitely need to avoid the consumption part of the utilities cost.

@Mark D asks:

Spese condominiale - we signed a contract to rent an apartment in March this year. The rent is a fixed amount per month plus a contribution of 200 EUR per month for le spese condominiale.
