A greeting from Enrico, the eldest child :
Hi! My name is Enrico, I’m forteen years old and I have 1 brother and 1 sister who are eight and eleven.
My hobby is basketball and I started in September. In my free time I like to go with the bike up the mountains with my friends, play basketball, football, go out with my friends, go to the lake and swim……
My favourite foods are pasta with seafood, lasagna and cotoletta alla milanese (Italian meat dish).
Como, for me, is a beautiful city, with the lake, the mountains, the cathredal, the centre, friendly people. We live near the lake and near Villa Olmo (which is a big villa where there is a beautiful garden), and five minutes from the centre.
