My name is Raffaele. I live in Livorno, Italy, in a big house with my partner Alessandra and my sons Sergio (17 y.o.) and Alberto (15). I'm a widower since 2005. I work in real estate, but I like to write novels e take photos, and love to cook.
Now I’ll try to explain my needs.
I’ll leave Livorno on the first days of August (or late July), and my son Alberto will remain alone until I’m back, August 21st (dates are slightly flexible, and adaptable to the times of the workawayer).
It’s easy to imagine I can’t leave him alone, even if he’s autonomous and self-sufficient. During the summer, he generally wakes up at 10.30 am, has breakfast, goes swimming and comes back home for dinner. Sometimes he might stay out for dinner with friends.
So I’m not really looking for a nanny or a baby sitter. I’m actually looking for a person who:
1. Can be present or easily contactable via mobile in case of necessity;
2. Does the shopping (we have a supermarket very close to home) and cooks something or prepares sandwiches;
3. Sleeps at home every night, no matter by what time they’re back (for example: being back home at 1 a.m. would be a good time whereas being back around 3 a.m. would be too late);
4. Cleans the house (kitchen, bathroom, Alberto’s bedroom).
I think it can take 2 or 3 hours a day – not more, probably less.
The workawayer will have a bedroom of his/her own, a personal bathroom, a bicycle available, money for food and for basic necessities.
In a nutshell: it is a simple job with little commitment and a lot of free time, but at the same time a job of great responsibility, because I entrust the life of a minor boy to a workawayer. So I’m looking for a mature and well referenced person, better if a mother – (in other words: preferably a nice and friendly person rather than an inflexible and tough one).
Alberto speaks English quite well – level B1/B2. And Italian, obviously. He’s polite, kind, respectful and obedient, a little shy.
Livorno is a town of 160,000 inhabitants, is located on the sea, has a lively summer life (concerts, events, etc.), and it’s close to Pisa, Lucca, Firenze.
I think that's enough at the moment. So, if you are interested, please contact me!

The workawayer can have a direct and deep knowledge of a good Italian (Tuscany is the place where Italian language was born), can spend a lot of time at the seaside or visiting art cities (Pisa, Lucca, Firenze, etc.).
