What about the language? How do I hire lawyers, contractors and the like? And what's with the Internet in Italy? What if we get sick? Why is it such a hassle just to get a phone? Will we ever become "Italian"?
Well, find out all this and more. It's not all frustrating... there are successes all along the way, both small and large.
It's a great read... on Amazon.
