  • Description


    My husband Fabrizio and I (Susanna) live in a small village between Varese and Milan (15 km from the former, 30 km from the latter) in Italy. And 25 km from Lake Como and from the Swiss border.
    On 12th March 2017 our daughter Rebecca Dorothy was born. on the 27th May 2019 Giulio was
    born . W are looking for a workawayer, not less than 21 years old, with experience and references from other families with toddlers and/or babies.

    I studied Foreign languages at Università Statale of Milan and worked in the Italian editorial market for nearly ten years.Then I changed and since 2015 I have been teaching English in a middle school near Como, and I am a journalist too. I like writing and reading, and studying about new media, marketing and communication. My husband is a project manager in a oil and gas engineering company and he works near Milan.

    We like travelling around the world, speaking foreign langueges, motorbiking and enlarging as much as possible our knoweldge of the world: reading, travelling, meeting new and different cultures and countries.

    We have a house with a garden and two cane corso dogs: Byron and Cleo. Quite big dogs but very sweet. Not vicious.

    My mother and one of my two sisters live in two houses very close to us.
    This is us!
