hello, I' m Fabio, a forty-nine years old oral surgeon and my wife Costanza is a doctor. We have two children, Pietro who is 16 and Rocco who is 10 and a black lab named Top. We live in Bologna, a charming city in the north-east of Italy. We live in a house at a walking distance from the city centre and near to "Giardini Margherita", the biggest park of Bologna. We spend the summer in a countryhouse near Bologna. In the winter we are used to go skying in the wonderful Alps. We like spending time in the countryside and up in the mountains. We are a really sporty family. We would love to host people from all over the world because we think it could be very interesting for all the family getting to know other cultures and languages.

Bologna is a very lively city, with lots of things to see and do. It's full of history; in fact it is the oldest university in the world. Besides, it's in an excellent position, very well connected with the major cities of Italy such as Venice, Florence and Rome, just one or two hours far by train. If you are interested in the seaside, it is also near to both the Adriatic and the Tyrrhenian coast. My house is near to the city centre, witch is easily achievable with the local busses or even walking. We have also great trails in the Apennines mountains, just outside from the city. We travel a lot around Italy, often to the mountains even for just few days.
