Benvenuto! Welcome!

I never expected to fall madly, gladly, giddily in love with the world's most luscious language. But fall I did. Over the last twenty-some years, Italian has become my passport into Italy's culture, history, lifestyle, traditions—and its very soul.

This site, along with my book La Bella Lingua and my blog Becoming Italian Word by Word, celebrates what Italy's language has taught me about its greatest art: the art of living.

I hope you visit often.
