About Renata

Tell us a little bit about yourself:
I’m an old lady, I live in a little city in the north of Italiy, I was a good cook for my family. I had a dog, her name was Bella but now I’m too old for animals, but I love them. I have lived here for  all my life but my father was from another part of Italy. During the War I lived in the countryside to my parents, but always near here. I made a lot of travel but only in Italy or very near.

I have two daughters and tre grandsons and all of them have a dog! Now I’m old, I watch tv I never go out alone, but I live alone and I’m able to do everithing. I have also a garden on my little balcony, with tomato and basilico for the pesto sauce in summer.

I hope my grandsons have children before I leave.
