Ciao, I’m Silvia from Italian Connections HCB and I’m writing with good news if you’re new to Italy or thinking of moving here.

Relocating to a new country is an exciting and brave adventure, but it can sometimes be stressful. I know because I’ve lived in different countries myself and moved many times before deciding to return permanently to my homeland. I pictured myself breathing in all of Italy’s wonderful culture, experiencing the warmth and fun of the people and settling easily back into the country I love. The trouble is, along with this wonderfully romantic view came a lot of bureaucracy!

Italy is one of the most beautiful countries in the world, but I have to admit it has its own challenges in the form of administration. Depending on where you choose to live, you might face complex procedures, lengthy application forms, phone calls, statements, meetings and what feels like thousands of documents.

Even for me as a native Italian speaker, it wasn’t easy. I had to ‘prendere il toro per le corna’ as we say here and teach myself how to make sense of the administrative obligations from scratch.

Then I realised that I could use that knowledge to smooth the way for other people moving to Italy. And that’s what Italian Connections HCB is all about.
