Hello, not sure if this is the correct place to post this. My husband and I are moving to Mantova in August to live. I was wondering if there were any people living near this city who would like to meet for a chat and a coffee sometime. We will not know anyone and it would be nice to meet and hear about other people's experiences of life in Italy. I know this is the Milan page but this is the best fit for our location.  Thanks

Titolo originale: Darkest HourRegia: JOE WRIGHTCast: Ben Mendelsohn, Lily James, Samuel West, Gary Oldman, Kristin Scott Thomas, Stephen Dillane, Ronald Pickup, Pip Torrens, Hannah Steele, Adrian RawlinsDurata: 02:05Anno: 2018Un'avvincente ed entusiasmante storia vera che inizia alla vigilia della Seconda Guerra Mondiale e che vede Winston Churchill (il nominato agli Oscar Gary Oldman), pochi giorni dopo la sua elezione a Primo Ministro della Gran Bretagna, affrontare una delle sfide più turbolente e determinanti della sua carriera: l'armistizio con la Germania nazista, oppure resistere per poter combattere per gli ideali, la libertà e l'autonomia di una nazione. Mentre le inarrestabili forze naziste si propagano per l'Europa occidentale e la minaccia di un'invasione si rivela imminente, con un pubblico impreparato, un re scettico ed il suo stesso partito che trama contro di lui, Churchill deve far fronte alla sua ora più buia, unire una nazione e tentare di cambiare il corso della storia mondiale.

Dear friends,I have tried emailing recruitment consultants directly to ask for complete transparency and an honest answer but to no avail..Please can someone offer or help me.I want to relocate to Milan next year but family and friends all warn me that it's the worst place to move to given the current status of the Italian economic climate.  I fear I will be unemployed and have made the wrong decision for leaving my London life behind me... I'm not from a techincal or highly trained background whatsoever.  I am employed as an Executive Assistant / office support administrator.  I dread the thought of becoming an au pair or embark on a TEFAL course as it's simply not what I want to do. I want to study Italian at a Milan based language school and then be placed thru their internship placement for 3 months unpaid work in a sector of your choice. The school have given me no indication if it leads to paid employment.  Also to get honest, first hand advice is like pulling teeth from a recruiter based in Milan. Can anyone advise me their honest opinion/advice of being on the same posit as me!? Know how the job market stands for office support roles. Thanks so so much x

Hi All,I was wondering whether there is anyone interested in an Italian - Portuguese language exchange. I'd like to learn some Portuguese for the upcoming month in Lisbon in October. Also if anyone knows about any convenient housing options (other than hotels and Air BnBs) please do tell.
