I just want to warn you that it is very difficult to find a job in Italy. That said, if you feel strongly that moving to Italy at this time is the right thing to do, why not try it out? It doesn't seem you have much to lose.

How about moving to New York and getting a job as a translator - maybe at the UN?

Your background is truly astonishing.

I agree with Tiffany. I have cousins who live in Rome and they've told me about their university educated friends who can only find work in pizzerias, bars, or restaurants. I love Italia, but it's honestly not a great place to find work right now, especially if you're a foreigner. There are lots of Italians moving to Germany or France just to find work. Also I'm a bit confused, if you don't already have your Italian citizenship, how will you find work and live in Italy? Unless you plan to work for a company that will sponsor a work-visa for you, which I've is rare for a company to do, just because of all the hassle.

She could go without a visa (as a tourist, good for 90 days), then use the circolare 32 route and apply for jus sanguinis citizenship in Italy. Once she had citizenship she could teach English as a second language.

Folks are right- wages are low. But if you're really crazy about Italy, it can be done. There are a few people living by teaching English at www.expattalk.com .

I second zagnut's recommendation of the expats board if you do think you want to go for it. He is right that with circolare 32 you can apply there. Good luck!!!

The site zagnut suggested is for much much more than just teaching English. I highly encourage you to give it a try if you plan on living in Italy. It's for people just like you!
