I'm looking at the possibility of installing a wet room and was wondering if anyone else has done it / had it done? Can you recommend a company that supplies the kits here in Italy?

Hello! Can anyone recommend a good technition who can install a pellet or multi-fuel central heating system from scratch including radiators, pipe work etc? I have had a couple of quotes already which have been too high - even my neighbours say so (one saying it would be lower if I were Italian!). I have a 3/4 bedroom house with 2 small bathrooms, kitchen, large lounge and 3 landings. any info greatly appreciated:)

I have finished building a house in Italy this year. The house has a solar panel on the roof for heating the water (simplistically, water runs through black tubes until hot and is then stored for use). I was told by the builder that all new-builds had to have one ... I didnt quibblel as I liked the idea.   I ahve just had my first electricity bill and fell off my chair at the cost. So I then thought of adding a photo-voltaic solar panel (one that generates Electricity). I did realise however that whilst Italy has fields of solar panels, I have rarely seen one on teh roof of a house.   Does anyone have any experience please? My location is Volterra.  stuartanthony@talk21.com

Does anyone else have problems with the wall sockets in their house? I can't find a way to get them to stay on. Every time I plug my hoover in (the plug with 2 fat pins) the sockets practically comes off the wall when I take it out - even if I do it carefully! What's the deal?

Dear forum, can anyone tell me if it is true that there are varying prices of electricity depending on whether you are Italian or not? My neighbours told me that foreigners are charged at a higher rate for electricity and I find the idea hugely preposterous. Can it be so? Any advice appreciated. David
