Pecora Nera (Black sheep) lives in Piedmonte, Italy with his wife (Mrs Sensible) and his trusted Italian – English dictionary. Mrs Sensible emigrated to Great Britain to escape the chaos of Italy, while she was there she married Pecora Nera and against her better judgement, she allowed Pecora Nera to persuade her that they should live in Italy. Pecora Nera writes about life in Italy, from the trials and tribulations of obtaining an Italian driving licence to being detained at Gatwick Airport because his Sicilian mother in law decided to go through the airport security with a rather large pen knife in her handbag.


Andrea of Sex, Lies, and Nutella

Andrea is an Italian-American living the dream (and occasional nightmare) in Rome.  On an incessant search for all things dolce in la vita, she recounts the travels, reflections, observations, and frustrations that make up her own special blend of life in the Bel Paese.  She also isn’t half as scandalous as her title suggests.
