welcome in Rome and in our family! Hosting you is one of the most fun, formative and amazing experience, for you and for us! We love to exchange culture and we hope that this experience can let us grow as individual and as a family. From your side, we guess, is the most exciting experience to live in abroad, to be part of a new family and to live as a very "Italian people". This is our fourth international experience ! And we believe we will keep on doing for a long time... We love sharing our lives and culture with an other person.
My family is composed by three children. Martino is 8 years old, Violetta is 5 years old and Valentino is 1 years old, an my husband Pierpaolo.
Here a reference from our current aupair, Katie from Sacramento, California: The family is an incredibly loving and caring family. The parents, Pier Paolo and Maria Laura, are an extremely kind couple, are wonderful at communicating with you, and make you feel as if you are part of their family. The children; Martino, Violetta, and Valentino, are happy, sweet, loving, very funny, and smart kids who know English very well. The children are absolutely wonderful and right from the beginning of meeting them they want to connect with you. Where they live in Rome is in a beautiful area! You are 15 minutes walking distance to Villa Ada, a 20 minute walk to Villa Borghese, and a short distance to the metro station and bus stops that can take you all over Rome. There are shops, restaurants, grocery stores, bars, and markets very close to where they live that it makes it very convent and an exciting place to live in the city where you can be part of the Italian culture. My time here has been absolutely wonderful! I had the amazing opportunity to live in Rome and make a forever family in Italy. I will miss them everyday!
