Born of Italian immigrants from Rome, I was born and raised in California with many visits to Italy. Old fashioned in chivalry, integrity, honesty, compassion, and romantic. Modern in equality, civil rights, and the freedom of choice and opportunities. Sometimes I feel a little caught between the two cultures. Communication, empathy, and sincerity are the key to successful relationships. I love cooking, entertaining, music and close friendship enjoying life and never taking it for granted. I have traveled a good amount, but hope to continue after Covid. I entertain the idea of living back in Italy or at least maintaining partial residence in both countries.
