- The lockdown continues 3 months ago We’re two weeks into lockdown now and we’re all still alive, healthy and (relatively) happy. Since I wrote last the rules have become even tighter here… last week we were surviving by going for lots of walks in the vineyards and forests, but that has now been outlawed too. We are allowed to...

Ciao! I was born in Turin, left it in 2001, moved to the UK, got married in 2009 now I am trying to go back to my beloved Turin with my hubby. Can you give us some advice? My husband works for Tarmac here, project area manager but does not speak any italian. I can't wait to move back home! Elena
