Midge Recommends!

Jack and I love living in Italy and want to share with you our favorite places, people and things.


Want to study Italian at a terrific school in a magical city?  There is only one choice – Centro Mediterraneo Pintadera! We’ve taken classes there and simply loved Alghero a walled city in Sardinia.  The historic center is full of bistros, shops and a glorious view of the sea!

Need a camp that has the kids sleeping in magical gypsy-esque caravans, is holistic in approach and would be wonderful for the whole family?  Gioia di Vita is in Gioi-Silento (Salerno) – close to Paestum, the Ancient Greek City on the Tyrrhenian Sea. History, culture, nature and just plain fun.  Visit Gioia di Vita!

To discover more about your heritage and explore the family you never knew you had we use a fabulous – and deliciously handsome – genealogist, Rich Venezia.  You can catch his Ted Talk and lecture calendar by clicking here.
