All my life I wanted to travel to Italy. But not just on a whirlwind vacation. No, I wanted to spend some time, absorb the culture, see the most beautiful artwork and architecture in the world. Finally, at age 60, my dream came true. This is my account of living and working in Italy for three months. It was challenging, exciting, even frightening at times. But it was the trip of a lifetime.
