  • Description


    Hello Workawayers!
    Our family is made up of 5 people: dad Marco aged 58, mom Cristina aged 54 and our 3 kids, Olmo 21, Guglielmo 19 and Anita 16. Marco and I work in Milan. Marco works in dairy machines global company and my job is within market research sector. My work includes the possibility of smarthworking 2 days a week.
    We live in an apartment not 500m from the city center of Legnano, an interesting town where you can visit an old Castle, a local history museum, just in front of our house, and some beautiful churches. Legnano is about 30 km from Milan. The connection with Milan is guaranteed by trains every half hour, as well as by a bus service and the journey takes about 40 minutes. In less than one hour you can reach Como and Maggiore Lakes, locations known all over the world, while it takes about an hour and a half to Garda lake. A little more than an hour away are the beautiful cities of Bergamo, Pavia, Crema, Turin, Verona and Cremona. The nearest sea is that of Liguria and is about 2 hours by car. For the mountains - the Alps - the travel time is about 2 hours by car. With the high-speed train you can reach Florence in 1.5 hours and Venice in 2.5 hours.
    We live in a green area close to the Ticino river park and the Olona valley park, places where you can walk, jog and cycle.
    Let's talk a little about us:
    Guglielmo finished high school this year and will enroll at the university in September (he chose the engineering faculty of Milan). Olmo is attending the Biological Sciences course in Varese university. Anita is the house artist and has finished the 3rd year of art school. We all have various interests. We love nature and travel to discover new places, people and different cultures. We all practice winter sports and the 2 boys love bodybuilding. We like going to the cinema, visiting exhibitions and being in contact with nature. We also have a dog named Tommy who lives with my parents. During the weekend it may happen that we go to pick it up to do day trips and walks in the fresh air together in the hills.
    Olmo and Guglielmo have many friends with whom they often meet to eat a good ice cream, to have an aperitif or even to eat a pizza. Anita has fewer friends and is mostly seen with her classmates.
    Marco has a passion for “bricolage” and he is a very good cook: he always prepares us delicious dishes!
    Anita and I prefer to go shopping!
