A step-by-step guide for foreigners who want to legally live in Italy for more than 90 days. Written from an American perspective, this book is an invaluable guide for anyone wanting to experience the magic of Italy. The book is equally valuable to anyone going to Italy on a job assignment, to study or to simply relax. Save time and money by following logical "To-Do" lists which guide the reader through the complicated bureaucratic maze of required forms and permissions, finding housing, transportation, importing your pet, choosing the best seasons, handling your house back home, adjusting to a new life-style, unwinding everything you accomplished while in Italy and much more. Humorous memoirs of the author's experiences and mistakes while living in Italy, Kenya and the United Kingdom make the book enjoyable reading. If a two week vacation in Italy leaves you wanting more then "Planning Your Year in Italy" is the first step you should take toward making your dream a reality.
