After learning about the 7% tax benefits to southern regions, you have had to shift your search for a new home in a region you know almost nothing about.
First you try to convince yourself that the tax break isn't that important...
But after speaking with a Commercialista (Italian accountant) you realize that you didn't work your whole life to give all your money to the Italian government.
Italy is great..but not that great!
So, you commit to finding a 7% town that fits YOU. And the deep dive begins. Countless hours are lost down the Google rabbit hole.
What you find, are pretty tourist-focused websites or YouTube videos designed to attract tourists (not residents) or expat blogs that paint dreamy pictures but give little sense of what life is really like.
Soon, you realize you need a scouting trip to really see what these places are like. But you don't know what you don't know, and your trip quickly ends in disappointment.
After days (or weeks) of driving through endless towns, never really knowing if you are just missing something, you leave with a heavy heart and question if your dream is really worth it.

For those that know me and those that I have had the honor to help move to Italy, you know that I am obsessed with taking complex things and boiling them down into small, actionable, easy-to-do steps.
I am a bit of a freak about it and can’t remember a time when I wasn’t the “problem solver – solution seeker” in the crowd of confused.
My dad used to say I was just stubborn or unwilling to accept “you can’t do that” for an answer, but I always believed that if you are able to look at a problem from every angle, break it down, and have the support and knowledge to move through and over the barriers, anything is possible.
Now, in my new life in Italy, I use my obsession with planning and finding solutions to help people from all over the world successfully move to Italy, whether it is to live part time or full time, with less stress and mistakes.
About the Author
Here is what I know...
You can move to Italy.
Here is what else I know… you need a plan and you need help. I know this because I have been where you are and made more mistakes than I will ever admit… I also know this because I have helped hundreds of people evaluate, plan, and make the move to Italy successfully.
And I can help you too.
It doesn’t matter if you are like Betta who didn’t want to live full time but wanted to find a way to spend more time than 90 days in Italy with her boyfriend, or Sarah who knew that her artistic life was meant for Italy and needed to make the move officially while racing against the Brexit clock, or Steve who was retired and wanted to live his next chapter in Italy but had no idea how to start, or Heather, who was self employed and didn’t think it was possible for her…
There is a way forward.
And, for those of you who know me, know that I tell-it-like-it-is and will never gloss over potential problems and lead you to believe moving to Italy is easy.
Because it isn’t.
Italy is a country with unparalleled beauty, culture, and warmth – but it is equally complex, frustrating, and congested with many levels of bureaucracy that can cause people who “wing it” to fail.
This is usually because they do not choose the right pathway of least resistance, do not evaluate their personal situation properly, do not have a proven plan, do not give themselves a long enough runway to take off and do not have the support and guidance early on. And you often won’t get a second chance at a Visa, so getting it right the first time is critical.
And that my friend, is where I can help.

Talking about how great Samantha Wilson has become cliché and almost boring…but I’m still going to do it! To move to Italy has been a vague dream for years. I thought it would be impossible to make this dream a reality. I now know, it is not only possible, but likely.
