The course that has helped hundreds of people plan and make the move to Italy. Vita Italia sets the foundation and gives you the clarity around subjects such as Italian taxes, visas, renting, buying and renovating property. We cover insurance, drivers licenses, banking and a whole lot more. You will get full and immediate access to the entire Vita Italia course.
Yes, life in Italy can be dreamy, but it is also "life." We will take a deep dive into the practical things that you need to understand about life in Italy. Understanding the quirks to the system and do’s and don’ts will help you adjust quicker and reduce frustration and disappointment.
This is the module where you will learn all about Healthcare, Banking, Insurance, Driving, Taxes, and the Italian Social System. Hang on, because we are about to get very real.
The Italian tax system is a thing of mystery for many - including Italians! We are determined to help make sense of it for you, and to guide you on how you can save money and plan for your move early to avoid unnecessary costs.
You will also complete a private evaluation of your finances for Visa qualification, settling in and meeting your lifestyle needs. Plus you will have a detailed understanding of exactly what it will cost you to move and live your lifestyle in Italy.
Choosing your place to live, whether it is buying/renting or sharing accommodation is more than just ticking off the property features. Where you live in Italy can have a major impact on your lifestyle, budget, taxes and residency status.
Our experts expose the truth about the property market in Italy and what the risk are to foreigners and how to reduce them. You will leave with a deep understanding of how you can rent or buy safely in Italy.
Maybe you think you don’t qualify for a Visa and moving to Italy is not possible for you? Not so fast! There are many pathways to a new life in Italy, and we will uncover every possibility so you can choose the best one for success. If you’re a dual-Italian citizen, we will show you all of the benefits (some even Italians don’t know!) waiting for you.
Finally, we will focus on the actual moving: preparing documents, reporting, the Permesso di Soggiorno, Tessera (health card) and more.
Italian taxes and special tax regimes (7% flat tax etc)
Permesso di Soggiorno applications and procedures
Property purchases and rentals
Visa applications and guidance
Italian healthcare (private and public)
Driving and transportation
How to save money and special government incentives
Moving household items and importing
Italian language lessons and study
Citizenship through ancestry and naturalization
Every month we release a masterclass to help give you clarity
This is where you can find past masterclasses, interviews, virtual tours of regions, cooking classes and chats with expats who have made the move.

"The best you will ever take"
When Diana's husband started sharing the things he was learning with Vita Italia, she said, "That's great but honestly, we will never ever be able to buy a place and move to Italy." But as time went on, Diana not only realized it was possible, but knew that they had the knowledge they needed to make the move, claim citizenship and buy a house in Italy. Now, they are celebrating their soon-to-be new life in Italy.
Yes, it Really Works

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.
"Think Katie's work is just for women? Think again. I'm a man (obviously), and my business tripled, too!"
What if you could spend less time worrying about *if* you can move to Italy and, instead, harness your energy in creating a roadmap that gives you the exact steps you need to take to evaluate, plan and make the move?
And, what if you had an expert guide to lead you through every single step of the way, helping you avoid mistakes, save money and take the stress away.
Ready for your life to change?
Vita Italia includes everything you need to reduce the stress and move without fear.
The Vita Italia Experience gives you DIRECTION.
It gives you SUPPORT.
It gives you a CONNECTION.
It gives you CLARITY.
Clarity on where you are now and EXACTALY what steps you need to take to get you moving towards your new life in Italy.
Can you imagine what it’s like to wake up in your favorite place in Italy, every day, knowing that you never have to check your departure date, or worrying about when you will be able to return, and then being able to share your new life with visiting friends and family?
You know that sounds good.
It’s time you took the first step, towards your new life in Italy.
I'm Samantha, a Westcoast city girl who probably like you, fell in love with Italy decades ago and made it my mission to find a way to move myself and my family to Tuscany. Fast forward past many years, costly mistakes and wrong turns, and you’ll see the life I have in Italy today, that is healthier, happier and more connected.
I am completely obsessed with helping people find their new life in Italy because I know that it is possible but I also know that Italy is complicated and that to do it alone, or with random, unqualified guidance is a recipe for disaster. I have seen it, wiped the tears and corrected the mistakes too many times to discount the importance of getting the right information from the right people at the right time.
Let Me Help You
Move to Italy
You're in the right place.
"This is the first day of the rest my life."
The Three Pillars of Vita Italia...
Where does you stress come from?
Usually it is from not knowing what to do, getting conflicting information, and confusion with the process and language barrier – but don’t worry – because we are going to cover that in every module along the way. Vita Italia is all about minimizing stress.
We also have “special live sessions” with expert specialists who generously offer their expertise to keep you grounded and prepared.
but it wasn't always this easy.
You may have a big dream to move to Italy and are determined make it happen at all costs, even if that means putting on blinders to the truth. You need to allow yourself to accept the truth that maybe, by the end of Vita Italia, your route to Italy may be a little different than when you started. But it will be informed and accurate and not clouded with frustration.
The weekly LIVE Q&A calls give you a chance to ask your questions and get the answers – to build on your knowledge base and keep you on track.
Fear comes in two forms – realistic and unrealistic and your journey to life in Italy will have a little bit of both. But fear, no matter if it is fear of a real problem or of something you perceive to be a problem, can be overcome. And the key to reducing fear is knowledge.
Each of these pillars will be seen throughout the Vita Italia Experience because when you reduce stress and clear the way for the truth, you will be more confident and prepared for the future.
Whether you are a digital nomad, planning to retire, an EU citizen wanting to make the move, Italian-dual citizen by descent or want to start a new life in beautiful Italy, you will benefit from Vita Italia.
As a BONUS, and to get you started on your language learning, we have included a 8-week Italian Language course.
For those of you who don’t know Manu, he is the FOUNDER and ROCKSTAR of a teacher from ITALY MADE EASY – This is by far, one of the most respected and dynamic Italian language course providers in the world. You just need to Google him to see what I am talking about!
Inside the Vita Italia Experience you will get weekly lessons and worksheets created for you by Manu!
Let me quickly go over the 6 kinds of people that Vita Italia IS for so you can figure out if it’s a fit…
"We are still a few years away, but we are so much closer."
Brandy and Greg fell in love with Italy on a vacation with family and were determined to get the wheels in motion for one day to make the full time move. Retirement is still several years away, but they knew to be truly prepared, they needed to start the learning process and make the connections early. After Vita Italia, Brandy and Greg had the confidence and support to buy a house in Italy which will one day be their home.

No, it's not too early!
"I feel like I belong in Italy and we are moving as soon as we can."
Theresa and Dan spent a lifetime working and raising a family in California.
Avid travelers, they have visited Italy many times and having an Italian mother, Teresa felt a kinship to both the culture, the language and Italy. For her, it was home. Now, in the process of applying for her Italian Dual Citizenship, selling their belongings in the US, they will arrive shortly on an Elective Residency Visa.
"The resources and the camaraderie within the Facebook group was informative, inspiring and helpful in my focusing."
Dreck had been researching and planning his move to Italy for years. Unsure from the conflicting information found online, he joined Vita Italia and not only found clarity through support and trusted experts, but is now laser focused with a date set and his future plan to be in Italy in the next two years.
There are many decisions that you need to make early on that will have a significant impact on your income, livelihood and the future lifestyle that you lead in Italy.
The best time to start planning for a move to Italy is 1 - 5 years away
"Samantha, thank you so much for Vita Italia! Moving to Italy has been my dream for many years and just hitting early retirement age I pretty much had my bags packed. You were so right when you said “You don’t know what you don’t know,” and let me tell you , there was a lot that I didn’t know and now I do. I can’t believe it has been 8 weeks already and I don’t want it to end."
"Your information, presentation and passion for your work light me up! You and your staff are concise and well grounded in your roles."
"Just want to say how much I am enjoying this process and the people you have connected this group with are wonderful. I am jealous every time I watch you, and I think as I talk about it with my wife, I may be breaking her down to come to the same feeling as I have about moving."
