Thank you very much indeed to you all.
I live in Genoa (please, don't talk about Columbus...).
I only asked as I have relatives who live near Mantova.

I was joking, as everytime I say to a not-Italian I'm from Genoa he starts to talk about Columbus!
Have you got Italian blood or are your relative British people living in Mantova? I'm curious (like a cat!)!

The old centre of Genoa is nice, but suburbs are awful. It's a common problem in Italy: we had a baby boom in sixties, so it was need for houses. A lot of horrible buildings were built without easthetical care. An example: up to sixties almost every city in Italy had its own mediaeval walls. Well, almost all were destroyed in order to have space to build!!!!!! A shame...

Hi...sorry to butt in on your conversation, but it's my dream to move to Italy one day...I'd like to live in the Calabria or Puglia regions...they seem to be idyllic, remote, unspoilt areas. Can you tell me any more!?

You don't have to excuse! It's an open conversation!
My grandmother comes from Puglia (Apulia in English), but I haven't ever been there!!! I have to go because I must ABSOLUTELY visit Castel del Monte (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Castel_...e_%28Apulia%29)! It's marvellous and I'm very fond of Frederick II! I've never been in Campania too, but every person I've talked with told me that Puglia and Campania are fantastic...but there are a lot of problems connected with mafia and so with abusive buildings that hurts natural landscape...it's not as idyllic as could seem
I suggest Tuscany: it's plenty of nice city such as Pisa (one of the few Italian cities that still owns its walls!), Florence (I would like to live there!), Lucca and many more. Besides British people love Tuscany very much: there's a zone called Chianti known as Chiantishire because is plenty of British inhabitants!
Anyway I'm not the rightest person to talk with about Italy: I dislike my Country and I want move to France or Spain...
