Teaching Qualifications and Experience

I have been working for years in the public administration in Italy and as a tecnical forestry consultant in Africa (Mali, Niger, Ghana, Cameroun). There I taught Italian language and Italian cooking to expats and locals. Most of them now live and work in Italy. I also taught Italian to my wife (belgian). She now is almost a native speaker.
Due to my education and working experience I'm specially prepared in the typical language of agriculture, horticulture, forestry, botany & cookery. I have a good knowledge of the Italian literature.

TEST Hobbies and Interests

I have a passion for local and creative cooking, the Mediterranean ingredients and teaching cookery. I also love snorkeling, hiking, reading, social life & film. My wife is a massage therapist (relaxing, watsu, energy balance). She loves the Italian cookery traditions, gardening, welness and yoga.


Our guests will have a spacious room, a twin bed, desk, air conditioning in summer, and free Wi-Fi. In summer they have a private bathroom. In winter we share our bathroom with them.
