Life in Italy team


Paolo Nascimbeni

The founder is originally from Rome. He moved to the US in 1987 to get degrees in Computer Science, BS 1988 SUNY Binghamton, NY, Master of Engineering 1989 Cornell University, Ithaca, NY. After graduation, he worked in the Artificial Intelligence computing department at IBM before leaving to open his own business involving trade in antiques and collectible cameras and cars with Italy.

In 2004, Paolo decided to return to his computing roots but continue the Italian connection, and founded lifeinitaly.com. Through lifeinitaly.com Paolo enjoys assisting the English-speaking population to pursue its passion for Italy, Italian food, culture, and fun. On the personal side, he loves to tour Italy and the United States on his motorcycles and enjoys sailing at his house on Lake Bolsena, two hours north of Rome. This site was born out of Paolo’s passion for Italy. When the site was born it was before WordPress and we had to write code and maintain the database. Thanks to progress now Lifeinitaly is a WordPress-based website and over the years it all became more and more about great content.
