What others are saying about Sicily

@bekah1975 asks:

Hello everyone- I have just purchased my first home in Modica but it is completely unfurnished. Kitchen needs to be installed, furniture and appliances, etc. would anyone have a recommendation for an English speaking interior decorator?

@alongianna asks:

I have a house in Sicily which I inherited from my parents and it is need of some work. When I contacted a contractor for a quotation I was given a price but told that there are government grants available which would pay 60/70% of the repairs.

@scottkeat asks:

Does anyone know how can I register to pay my property taxes electronically if I do not have any Italian identification documents? I have a Codice Fiscale, of course. But I am not a citizen, nor have a long-stay visa at this time.
