Hi everyone! I’ve just lunched my new project on Patreon and I would like to invite you all to my Lessons on How To Be Italian.
Why did I start this project? Well, I think I told you that I quit my dull day job (working for a state institution) more than one year ago and, since then, I tried to live a more authentic life, devoting more time to my family and friends, to music, volunteering, blogging, cooking.
Away from the stressful working life I discovered that the real joys of life are the simplest ones: reading a good book, cooking for friends, strolling about in the weekly open-air-market in my home town. I also realized, thanks to my friends all over the world, that many of those simple joys are typically Italian.
My friends started asking me advices on anything from ‘what kind of pasta suites better a vegetable sauce?’ to ‘what is the secret for a foamy cappuccino?’
On Patreon will help you live your Italian side like an Italian, sharing with you my experience, my tips and secrets.
Topics I will cover:
Italy’s quintessence; Lifestyle; Travelling; Attitude; Food & Wine.
Italians do it better? Do what? And how much better? And compared to whom?
I don’t know but if you follow me you may end up finding out (and doing it better yourself too!).
On Patreon you can have access to Patreon-only contents (by pledging) but I will post ever now and then free contents and podcasts.
My first free podcast is ready. Hurry up 😉
Grazie mille, Brad!!!
Love this idea Simona!! And love the description of how you fill your Post-job days. I’ll be listening! Hugs from here!
Grazie mille, Rhonda for your encouraging words 🙂 xoxo
P.S. The photo of you with your viola (violin?) is gorgeous! Were you off to play??… xo
Ciao Rhonda. Walter took the picture of me with my violin in Fano, in the former church of San Francesco, where we played with our amateur orchestra last Summer! Hugs
Would love to drop in some day and hear you play with the orchestra Simona! What a gift. xo
Hi Rhonda.We’ll be playing Renaissance music on Saturday 25th march in Fano. I’m pretty excited!!! xoxo
Beautiful. What pieces are you doing Simona?? Do you have to travel there to rehearse?? That is exciting!! xo
Ciao Rhonda. At the moment we are playing music from the Renaissance but please consider that we are an amateur orchestra (a few of us have a music degree from the music conservatory and others, like me, studied privately). We are: four violins (2 first and 2 second violins), one viola, one double bass, one clarinet (not too Renaissance style!), one spinet, 2 singers (1 mezzosoprano and 1 baritone), 1 percussionist. When we play ‘folk music’ we also have an accordionist 🙂 One of the violins is M° Daniele Canu, violin maker in Pesaro. I’ve recently started studying cello, as cello players come and go from the orchestra! One of the first violins also plays the bagpipe!
