Interaction with guests
There is a community in the area of various european people, particularly British. People who live in the village who drink in the bars in the area. and often meet up in the evening for aperativo. The commune has recently involved asylum seekers into civic activities. There are two friendly shops. Louisella's on the corner as you arrive in the village speaks good English and you can buy most things you would require. The Santo Spirito hotel/restaurant also is friendly and Marie Ciara speaks English. There was recent floods in most part of Italy over the winter months. and the river area is just recovering from overflowing banks. If your driving further afield there are many neighbouring village where you can eat .
