  • Description


    Ciao! I am Giulia, I am 37 years old, I am a pre-school teacher (3-6 yo children), for a period of 9 months during university I studied in Wales with the Erasmus project, I would be curious to continue practicing the English language and I would like my children began to learn this language beyond the scholastic context. I like music, in fact when I can I allow myself to go to concerts and in my free time I play beach volleyball.
    My husband Matteo is 40 years old and he is a physiotherapist. He has many passions: lego, manga, sports (volleyball, tennis, five-a-side football, basketball, paddle, etc.!), films, TV series and fantasy in general. He loves to eat and cooks very well everything he puts on the stove! It's a shame that he doesn't have enough time to dedicate to his passion.
    Teresa is 9 years old, she is very sweet, very deep and sensitive, she plays volleyball, she is taking guitar and ukulele lessons, she is part of a Scout group in Fano, she really loves playing outdoors, She has taken English lessons for several years . She is very curious, in fact when she has time she watches naturalistic, historical and other documentaries. She loves reading and listening to stories.
    Davide is 5 years old, he had a complicated birth, he was born preterm, but thanks to his strength and the care of many special people now he is a tenacious, lively, cheerful, sweet and very sensitive child. He also likes Lego, music (he is taking a hip hop course) and playing outdoors.
    We live in Fano, a welcoming city on the Adriatic Sea, connected to Rome directly by the famous Via Flaminia. In particular, we live in a quiet neighborhood from which you can reach the sea and the historic center on foot (but we prefer the bicycle!), here you can breathe in all the Roman history that characterizes Fano. We like to spend our free time with family and friends, outdoors and, whenever possible, on the beach, playing board and card games of which we have a good collection. We love eating and cooking Mediterranean cuisine, but also trying other types of cuisines.
