Have you dreamed of spending more than a two-week vacation in Italy? Not sure where to start?

Do you think you might want to move to Italy in the future and want to learn more? Especially about visas, real estate and tax implications?

Are you single or planning an extended stay or move on your own? Did you know that many others like you have done it successfully? And that there are interesting adult study abroad and culture/co-working initiatives to give you a sense of community?

This virtual workshop is for anyone who DREAMS of spending more time in Italy. We go beyond the vacation to explore options in an extended stay (Americans can stay up to 90 days out of every 180 days without an additional visa) and what someone needs to consider in terms of a move.

Join Dream of Italy host and founder Kathy McCabe for a though-provoking, interactive 2-part virtual workshop with sessions via Zoom where she helps you define your nextDream of Italy” and explore the steps to get there. Kathy will be joined by legal, real estate and accounting experts to provide you with the most up-to-date details on your options. Among other guests will be American expats, live from Italy,  who have successfully become part-time and full-time residents of Italy. We will talk about how to plan an extended stay simply as a one-off experience OR as something of a taster or fact-finding trip to find out more about real estate and moving opportunities. So much exciting ground to cover!

Also joining us: American expat to be announced.

Special guest for January 28th session: Nick Metta, Partner, Studio Legale Metta with offices in the U.S. and Italy to talk about visas, legal issues and taxes
