Ciao, I am half Italian (from my father's side). I was born and live in the United States. I love all things Italian (except meat because I am a vegetarian). I would like to make friends with more MyLotter's who are Italian, living in Italy or the United States. Since a lot of our Italian relatives have passed, I want to keep alive the Italian traditions. I speak a little Italian but would like to be fluent in it. In 1973 I went to Italy for a month. I did not speak any Italian then but came back to the United States and took two semesters of Italian in adult school. My dad is the only one whom I can speak a little Italian to. I have tried to research my family history (genealogy). I cannot seem to get back too many generations. My Italian side of the family are from the region of Calabria also, specifically Cosenza. I hope to meet more Italians or people of Italian heritage here on MyLot. Grazie.
