We are leaving the EU but not Europe, it is important to stress. Italy like the other countries in Europe remains a key friend and ally. We want to continue a close relationship with our European partners at a trade and investment level, in securit... »

HMA Christopher Prentice CMG – Doing time in Italy

What can I say about my time here in Italy? It has been a privilege to be in Rome at a time of immense change, both in Italy and back in the UK. The UK underwent something of an ‘Italian’ experience, with a coalition government – a novelty for us Brits –, before reverting, in the last election, to the more traditional single party government. Here in Italy, there have been four governm... »

UK expats: don’t miss out, you may be able to vote in the EU Referendum.

He moved to Italy following, as he calls it, “one of my great passions: ice cream.” Since then he founded Videomusic in 1984 becoming the first musical channel dedicated to music. He did a stint for Italia 1’s Le I... »
