Publisher Description

Looking for a guide to the practicalities of living in Italy? Whether you need to know how to find a plumber, what the comune is there for or how to get permission to renovate, this practical illustrated book is for you. And its accompanying audio gives you all the language skills you need to communicate with the locals.

It is difficult to quantify how many Brits are currently looking to buy a second home in Italy, but judging by the number of television programmes featuring people hoping to move to Italy either permanently or to buy a holiday home there, the number must be significant.

Every home owner has to go through the process of searching for property and buying it; most new and existing owners will be renovating or redecorating at some point and this will involve dealing with tradesmen and/or suppliers. For this, these homebuyers will need to understand at least the basics of Italian property law, house construction, building, plumbing, electrical systems etc, and they need to know not only the words but how the systems work. Living in Italy gives the explanations and vocabulary for each aspect of finding, buying, renovating and living in a house in Italy.

In addition to approximately 120 labelled illustrations, the book has audio which gives the pronunciation and practice of the necessary vocabulary. Download our free app, Teach Yourself Library, from the App Store or Google Play to access the free audio.
