Hi – this is Keith Chambers.  Here you’ll find posts from and about Italy, as experienced and thought about by me, and my wife Anne.   We have lived and worked in Italy on several occasions, including five months in 2004, and another 4-5 months in 2007, when we  lived and taught in Siena.   We plan another exploration, and some walks in the countryside, later in 2010.   Hope you enjoy our sharing here some of the Italian places, people and experiences we’ve found novel, beautiful and just plain interesting.  You’ll also find tips here for enjoying Italy when you visit.  Stay tuned….
