I am a Physicist, I run a Violin Restoration workshop in Florence. I have two boys, 15 and 10 years old. They are attending a French International School. At home we speak Italian and Spanish (I was born in Colombia). I am separated from my wife, but we live in the same building and the children come and go without any problems .

Cultural exchange and learning opportunities
We hosted many Spanish, French, British girls and has been always a fantastic experience exchanging cultures.
Florence is a nice small city, art is all around, there are a lot of art and language schools. It take less than two hours to reach some of the beautiful towns in Italy, Roma, Siena, Lucca, Bologna...
