  • Description


    We are a family of Milan now living in Melbourne with our five children: Anita, Orlando, Syria, Ughetta and Adelchi (3, 5, 8, 10 and 17 years old ).
    After having lived in Sardinia for a few years, we decided to move in Australia following our spirit of adventure, and we are enjoying a lot ! I am not working at the moment, but I am studying for opening soon my Family Day Care at home. Cesare is the founder of a society of renewable energies and his project is to expand his activity here. We like to spare time with friends and to know new persons and new places, so we frequently travel in Australia, New Zealand, Tasmania to discover new places and to take advantage of this incredible part of the world.
    Our children are all different for actitudes and way of being: Anita is a very indipendent girl, she likes very much to paint, to cook and to do little art jobs; Orlando is a very sweety boy, he likes to sing, to dance and to masquerade. They love very much each other and they play quite all the time together, even if sometimes they quarrel !!! Syria is a very smart baby, very active (I thing because she is stimulating by her brothers), she is always smiling and she already seems a very determinated baby!!! Adelchi is a very clever boy, very good and patient with his brothers, with whom he plays everytime he can.
