  • Interesting Italy Blogs That I Follow
    Our Paesani

    by Francesca Di Meglio

    Spring is the season when Italy comes out of hibernation and people from all over the world start dreaming of the Tuscan sun, Neapolitan pizza, Amalfi coast, or fill-in-region and its beauty. It's when my family's Ischia, an island off the coast of Naples, starts welcoming tourists again. And it's the time of year when I usually head off to Italy myself. This year, I'm waiting until the summer, but the place is still on my mind. While I'm back in the States, I keep up with Italy through some interesting blogs that are written in English. Here's where you might find me online when I'm lost in thoughts of Italy:

    Jillian In Italy
    I came across this blog while living in Italy last year. I was searching for condensed milk, and Jillian, who is originally from Canada, described her adventures in finding this product on Italian grocery store shelves. Since then, I periodically check in to see what crafts she's making and where she's traveling with her husband and kids, who they are raising in Italy. She offers lots of great tips for bonding with your children even as they hit their tween years. Everything she writes has an Italian bent because of where they are living.

    Surviving in Italy
    I'm new to this blog, but I'm already addicted. An American who moved to Florence, this blogger is sassy and funny. She ended up marrying an Italian (despite her plan to marry a Brit who looked Italian). Now, some of her best blogs describe her husband's return to the womb whenever they are back with his family and how the in-laws despise her. I don't know what I like more the swearing, the willingness to mock her in-laws publicly, or her complete and utter honesty. She basically says everything all us American girls are thinking whenever we hang with our all-too-authentically Italian in-laws. Love it!

    Elizabeth Minchilli in Rome
    Minchilli is the famous creator of the Eat Rome, Eat Florence, and Eat Venice apps. You might have read one of her books, such as Italian Rustic, about how to create the look of an Italian farmhouse. She's yet another American, who fell for an Italian and found herself raising a family in Rome. Her blog is dedicated to all the things she loves, including shopping and traveling around Italy. But, mostly, you'll get scoop on the food. She features both restaurants and recipes and the photos will have your mouth watering. Seriously, you might try to eat through the computer.

    An American in Italy
    This blog offers a little bit of everything culture, travel, food, exposure to the circus that is Italian politics. The photos, however, will call your name. They are striking and will have you longing to go to the Boot. What's interesting is that the woman who writes the blog is in her 50s, dreamed of living abroad, and just picked up and went to Italy. She has no ancestral ties to the place nor did she marry an Italian or anything like that. Now, she travels and shares her stories and pictures. Sounds like a dream to me!

    Di Meglio is the Newlyweds Expert for, and you can follow her life and work at the Two Worlds Web site.
