Tirano (Lombardy)

Tirano is a town in Valtellina, in the province of Sondrio in northern Italy. The river Adda flows through the town. Located nearby is the Catholic shrine of the Madonna di Tirano, a major tourist attraction dedicated to the appearance of the Blessed Mother to Mario Degli Omodei on September 29, 1504, an event religious pilgrims credit with ending a pestilence. The Museo Etnografico Tiranese (MET) is an ethnographic museum and located nearby the Basilica Madonna di Tirano in an 18th-century Palazzo, the Casa del Penitenziere (Penitent's House). The museum of Palazzo Salis in the old town of Tirano is an example of the use of trompe l'oeil to create the illusion of architectural features.

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:


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.
