Again, I can help.

If I do not have a contact, I know who to call to find out who would be the best for what is required. I would be your Guardian Angel, taking your interests in hand, watching out, covering your back from start to finish.
One bit of free advice from Your Italian Concierge… learn the Italian language. It’s a fun language to learn. What you see is what you have to pronounce. It was the first thing when I came to Italy. I enrolled in a language school in Florence. It’s a courtesy which pays back untold dividends. The other side of the coin is it will be, sooner than later, a necessity, though I will be around to interpret for you.
