About Me
Hi, my name is Cinzia, after working as a Project Manager in Developing countries I started and ran a business restoring Italian historic properties with my husband. My husband Gianni is a retired engineer and builder and consulted extensively on projects with local universities. We are now enjoying retirement and dividing our time between our two homes in Puglia and Sicily and continuing our passion for travelling every chance we get. We are active in several food/wine groups in Italy (Slowfood etc) and love exploring local markets, foraging and cooking. We share a passion for restoring old cars, theater, photography and….chocolate. We love the outdoors and activities such as fishing, swimming, snorkeling and walking our dogs when weather allows and curling up with a good book when it doesn't.
