An Italian Home Settling by Lake Como


An Italian Home Settling by Lake Como by Paul Wright

What is it like for a foreigner to live and work in a village in Northern Italy, and become part of the community? How tough is it to leave your home country and settle in a new one? What do you have to do to be accepted by the people who live in a village by Lake Como, which has existed for over five hundred years? Award-winning artist and stage designer Paul Wright and his partner Nicola found out the hard way, struggling through nightmarish and obstructive Italian bureaucracy, but relishing their life as they worked, played, ate and drank alongside the residents of a beautiful, quiet lakeside village. Enjoy Paul's dry Liverpool sense of humour as he conveys a vivid word picture of life beside the lake with their colourful and resourceful neighbours.
