Stefka, I have put my search on hold and do not have direct experience with anyone in Italy. I wish you the best of luck! Ask around, I bet you can get some good information.

Ahh, Paddington, you encourage me! I've been looking at property in the US... then my mind returns to Italy. Who knows what will happen? I'm planning a visit for next spring. :)

After the time I've spent considering the positives and negatives, I've pretty much decided that the unpredictable healthcare is going to nix Italy for me. I know that if I lived in Milan or Rome, I'd be fine medically. But I don't want to live in a large city, and even if i did, I could not afford it.

Other considerations that have made me step back would be the conversion of US dollar to euros, the insane bank account problems Americans are having, and the driving conditions in Italy.

I still have the dream, but it is likely only a dream now.

Welcome, Cindy! I'm an American living in Texas, dreaming of living in Italy. I'll check out your blog.:)

Thank you! I am reassured that there are other options than modern.

Thank you, Gala. I have anticipated a lot of areas of culture shock, but I admit I never thought furnishings would be one of them. Thanks to everyone for your kind replies.

Fascinating! Thank you, Alan! And thank you for song my research for me. Doh.

Large Lewis, thank you. I don't know-what are Italian sized beds? I know they are different from the US. Probably better to buy an Italian mattress so you can easily purchase sheets, I guess.
