    You can learn Italian, and Reggio Emilia is very close to many beautiful cities.
    There is plenty to do in Reggio and nearby.

    We leave early in the morning and we come back at 1:30pm. During the afternoons I need some help depending on the several commitments at my workplace ( but there will be a schedule on 17th Sept so we'll arrange the timetable) and sometimes in the evenings. The weekends are free, from friday, 6:00 o'clock p.m. to Monday 1:30 p.m.
    Stefano is a lovely cheerful pre- teen aging boy, who loves drawing, painting ( sometimes), playing Lego star wars characters; he is fond of History and cavaliers. He practices volleyball (twice a week), horse-riding ( in spring and autumn) and goes to English classes on Thursday afternoons. Stefano is very sensitive and needs to click with the people around him, otherwise he can become really naughty. He's very energetic and likes dancing (when he’s in the mood) in the middle of the living room, especially when he's been staying sitting down, doing his homework for some hours.
    He needs a good friend.

    What else ...

    Bus stop to city centre and the park is just opposite the street we live in, train station 15 minutes walk, chemist's, bank, supermarket, post office, ...all nearby.
    I'm quite an easy person, but I like discretion and punctuality. I like to keep my space clean and tidy.
