La Ciociara La Ciociara

I was born in the U.S., but my heart belongs to Italy. I have developed this blog to talk about all things Italian, especially from the Lazio region, including travel, art, food, history, and life in general.

My love affair with Italy began when I was a child. When my parents decided to pack everything up and move back there, we moved to Milano, where I attended first grade, and even though I was so young, it has left quite an impression on me. In fact, to this day I have been trying to find my way back to a life there, but having a family makes it a not so easy thing! Of course, I go to Italy every chance I get, having my father's side of the family there, mostly in the Lazio region which is in central Italy and includes Italy's capital, Rome.
