  • Description


    My name is Anna and I'm a working mummy, always running to match up all the commitments of my 12 years boy: Riccardo.
    We live in a fantastic town Reggio Emilia (70 km from Bologna), famous for the "Reggio Emilia approach" in education, but mostly for the food: Parmigliano reggiano, Lambrusco and cappelletti!
    We live in a townhouse in a very green area near to a park and quite 15 minutes from the centre of the town.
    We love animals and we've got two cats living with us.
    Riccardo is very keen on lego construction and on video games, but i dont want him to spend too much time on the computer. I prefer more active activities for him, like walking on open air spaces, playing football and of course studing!
    We love cinema, going to the mountains and make dinner with our friends.
    Our workaway helpers will become part of our family!
    That's why i'm looking for a person interested in living in an Italian family and cooperate with me in the managing of the house activities when i'm not at home (for example, preparing lunch for my boy, helping with the homeworks or doing the shopping).
    If you're interested, please contact me!
