moving to milan

Post Posted: Wed Feb 15, 2006 10:41 am

My husband is italian and we are planning on moving to Italy this year. I am excited but, don't know what to expect. I am a photographer and make a nice living. I have heard it's very hard for a woman to work in Italy. Does anyone have any advice for this issue? I will have an Italian citizenship in about 2 years.

Ciao Jalbel,

am Patrizia, expatriate from Milano.

Just spent 2 months there, as I m moving back to Italy.

I can garantee u that work for women isnt a problem at all.. more then it is for men anyway..! I think that is a bit of an old stereotyped way of thinking, in anycase for Milano.

The challenge at the moment is that the economy is really flat, and elections are up in april..so everything seem to be on hold...
I had 2 months to work, but could not score any casual job....that's cause things go slow in It. (remember that...!)
Am sure if u have time to search and yr experienced u will make it.
I think if u r enterprising and hard working, there are good opportunities in It....but it is a bit harder at the moment. Economy has to pick up..or there will be grim times for It.

Mi. is good, can even be exciting (depends where u r from, though..!), but sure isnt Paris or Barcelona.. After lots of travelling, I find it a bit provincial..But, its where am from..I somehow love it anyway... Wink
And x a photographer should be great..!

Take care, all the best with yr adventure, Patrizia
