    • Thanks, Diane – I really appreciate it. Reminds me of my uncle who opened a Christmas present once and said, “I LOVE it,” pause, pause, “What IS it?” Now I shall go find out, but meanwhile, thank you again.

    Voglio che tu mi dia qualche informazione, il mio nome è Sebastian discendente Arzeno, nato a Zoagli, Italia, conosco il vostro certificato di nascita, per sapere come si chiamavano i suoi genitori e fratelli

  4. I’ve read the site in English & Italian, am I missing something? I can’t find a page about the stamp prices in Italy. Is this what you were trying to tell me?

    • Hi Jenny – I sent you an e- on your website. From home page choose Privati, then Servizi Postali, then Lettere under prodotti postali, then choose the kind of letter you’re sending (ordinary mail is posta prioritaria). Using posta prioritaria as an example, over in the paragraph on the right it says it costs .60 for a letter. Or you can click Prezzi in the submenu under Lettere for whatever it is you want. Hope this helps.

  5. Hello:

    I’d written to you some time ago with a question but never received a reply. How does one contact you?

    Thank you


  6. Thanks, Jennifer. How appropriate that this is a German word. I’ll follow up on it soon, but didn’t want to let the day slip away without thanking you heartily.

  7. Thanks, Jennifer… how appropriate that this is a German word. I’ll follow up on this very soon, but wanted to say right away, thank you tons!

  8. Fabulous writings and photographs …
    The information and facts are a joy to one who guides on Norfolk, UK and had parties of those from Italy whose intention is to improve their English .
    Thank you !!!

  9. Hi Fern,
    I want to wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

  10. Hi!
    surfing in Internet I found your blog and I’m so happy for it. I live in Liguria too, in Genoa and I’ve started a blog on travelling in Liguria due to my passion for this region. I would be happy to exchange our links.

    What do you think?
    Please let me know

    I need help in finding some historical reference or information on my grandfather Gennaro Rusconi. Born on 29 Mar 1893 who was held a prisoner at the Castello in Rapallo and was to be executed, but was saved at at 11th hour after pleas by my mother.

    • Am meeting someone tomorrow who may be able to help – will let you know.

    • We left Rapallo 6 years ago. But I DID ask friends in Rapallo who were Castello historians. They told me that the records from the Castello had disappeared, and I was unable to find if prisoners there were perhaps moved to the prisoner of war camp in Val Fontanabuona. Not able to track down those records either. I remember it being a very interesting, if fruitless, exercise, and I apologize for not getting back to you at that time. Life.

    Hi Louise — I just thought you should have my real
    In the sgabei post, you quoted Fred McGourty. Is that THE Fred McGourty, of Norfolk, CT, the
    famous plantsman and garden designer? We’ve met — Castle and I went to a wedding in Norfolk years ago and a mutual friend took us to the McGourtys’ garden. Small world! xo Alice

    • Alice, did I EVER reply to this 11-year old comment? It doesn’t look like it. I’m in Logan awaiting a flight back to PHX after a glorious week in VT. Visited briefly with Kate, John, Angus, Charles – would have loved to see you, too. Maybe next time??

  13. Hello, Fern-

    Oh, my goodness. You’ve stumbled on a moral lapse of mine. I just grabbed that photo – if it’s the one I think you’re talking about, a sunset desert island – from Google images with no thought of attribution. I’m not the photographer – just a thoughtless pirate! Yikes.

    So, um….have at it?

    And, au contraire – your blog looks very interesting. I spent a few months in Italy many years ago, a little east of Florence, and loved it. I’ve bookmarked it, so I will darken your doorstep again.

    I feel sad that I don’t have some pompelmo gelato in a bowl in front of me right now.
