In Rome you're bound to find other Canadians -- maybe not so many living there, but tourists are everywhere.

well, I am not Canadian but I believe that I almost am. I love Canada, the quality of life and the people of course. I work and live in Rome for the time being though which sucks. Oh I used to work with the Canadian embassy and my boyfriend's Canadian too. In fact, I was just in Toronto and flew back to Rome tonight.

So, anything for Canada Day?

Hello All,

I'm an Italo canadaian holding dual citizenship in both Canada and Italy (I was born to Italian parents in Toronto and obtained italian citizenship in 2007). I moved to Italy in 2007 and am currently working and living in Rome.
I have a querie though: What do I do about my income taxes? How do i file? and am I subject to dual taxation? I have no idea how this stuff works -help! I don't want to get audited!

Thanks in advance for your help.


Hello again,

This is for yodadog: To be able to legally work in Italy you need to have a type of work visa which in Italy is called a "Permesso di soggiorno" whch basically is a permit allowing you to stay and work in the country. To obtain this though you need to have some one or an employer who will sponsor you definitivly. This however is hard to find, one good thing though since Italy is corrupt you can find a ton of jobs teaching english where they pay you under the table and most rentals don't have a contract to it's kind of easy to be an illegal alien in Italy.
Good luck with your stay, Rome is just lovely -I guess thats why I chose to live here!

Just wondering if there are any other Canadians in Rome. Or is there some kind of group or meetup for Canadians in Rome?

Well, this thread is getting rather old, but I'll try anyway. I'm moving to Rome at the end of this summer (which means really soon!). Any Canadians there?
