Καλώς ήλθατε στο blog italiamata, που απευθύνεται σε όσους αγαπούν την Ιταλία και καθετί… ιταλικό -γεύση, χρώμα, άρωμα, εικόνα, ήχο, τέχνη, προορισμό!

If I should define myself in a conventional manner I would say that I am a lawyer and an Italian translator. I've studied Law and Italian Language and Literature. But this doesn't really help when you want to meet someone, does it? So I will tell you that I write poems (some published), I believe in fairytales, I like learning, respecting (and being respected), hearing music, dancing, singing, cooking (mostly sweets), travelling, reading (horror novels in the summer), and mostly being a mom! Obviously I have also bad sides, but for now I should make a good impression :)!

If you want follow me to a never-ending journey towards flavors, colours, sounds, destinations, interviews, events, art and trivia ...all Italian but also translated in Greek and English! This enterprise is aimed at travelers, lovers of the Italian art and culture or food or just curious ones!
