Hi, Wonder if anyone can tell me if someone resident and working in Italy, who was exempt form charges due to a thyroid condition when in the u.k would also get free prescriptions in the Italian system?

Just wanted to stick my head above the parapet and say hello, after weeks of silently trawling the community pages, marveling  at the amount of useful information on display!

Thank you for the suggestion, we hadn't thought about a hotel as we would like to do some cooking, but will bear it in mind.

What a good idea for a post. Having spent far too long devouring Non Fiction on Italian subjects, and to a lesser extent Fiction, I would highly recommend the following: If you've not read 'The Leopard' by Giuseppe Tomasi di Lampedusa then do so immediately, it is arguably the best novel by an Italian writer; If you have even a smattering of interest in Sicilian history then you really must. Another beautiful and expertly written novel is 'The Garden of the Finzi-Continis' by Giorgio Bassani, which is set amongst the doomed jewish community of wartime Ferrara. 'Naples 44' is a Non Fiction account by Norman Lewis of his time in that city as an intelligence officer and is as rich and moving as a good novel. Incidentally, if it's the Mafia you're after then 'The Honoured Society' is a classic account of it's origins by the same writer, one you'll want to read more than once, but rather depressing in it's conclusions. Could go on but mustn't.  Happy Reading Rendin

Thanks everyone, I'm working my way through all the suggested sites and there are indeed some nice properties. Will let you know how we get on. There also seems to be a trend for price reductions/willingness to consider offers at the moment unlike the last time we looked (couple of years ago), which for us is good news. Rendin
