  • Healthcare – "According to the WHO, the Italian health care system is ranked as 2nd best out of 191 countries, in terms of health status, fairness in financial contribution, and responsiveness to people’s expectations of the health care system.

  • Healthcare in Italy – "Italy ranks among the World Health Organization’sfunded. Of course, you don’t have to rely solely on public health facilities. Like many Italians top 10 countries for quality health services (by contrast, the U.S. only holds 37th place, despite being the highest spender). However, although medical facilities are considered to be adequate for any emergencies, some public hospitals are reportedly overcrowded and under-, you can avail of the parallel private medical service—known as the assicurazione sulla salute—that caters for patients covered by private medical insurance. However, in some small towns, particularly in the south, you will only be able to access the public health system—private doctors and hospitals congregate in bigger cities where residents are more likely to have private medical insurance. According to rankings, the best medical care, especially in an emergency situation, is likely to be found in the northern hospitals in cities like Milan and in central Italy near or in Rome. Reportedly, English-speaking doctors are particularly easy to come by in Rome and Milan as well." – "" – "About" – Source: International Living®– "Since 1979" – "Live Better - for Less - Overseas"

  • Italian health care system vs. the US health care system – "The Health Care System is a thorny subject in every country of the world: often tied dangerously to the political agendas of its creators, it is known to be one of those matters that could make a government capitulate. In spite of being both wealthy, developed countries, Italy and the US have completely different approaches to health care. Italy has a public-based system, supported by tax income, as well as a flourishing private insurance market, which is often chosen by Italians as a sort of top up to the standard public "mutua". In America, public coverage is limited to Medicare, and the private sector is the major provider of health coverage to citizens. In Italy, citizens and corporations pay around 50% income tax. Income tax is calculated, of course, on citizens' income, but the weight of taxation in the country is among the heaviest in the whole of Europe. Italians are certainly not alone in having to pay so much taxes, but the problem is that, especially in recent years, it seems the quality of the services provided is not as good as it should be, and this is true also for healthcare. Hospitals are often understaffed, waiting lists can be very long, especially if one's condition is not life threatening."  – Fri, 06/12/2015 - 00:00 – Submitted by Francesca Bezzone – Source: lifeinitaly.com – "is a website that covers multiple aspects of Italian contemporary life and tourism." – "News | Travel | Food & Wines | Culture | Lifestyle | Fashion | Moving to Italy | Learn Italian | Home & Garden | Places"

  • Italy in August 2016 – "Italians take their holidays in August, and you will find beaches and cooler mountain towns overcrowded with Italian vacationers. There will be less people in major cities such as Florence, Milan, and Venice, as much of the locals would have gone on holiday, so these are the best places to visit if you want some peace and quiet. You should avoid the sweltering mid-day heat of August in Italy and relish instead in the night-time entertainment, such as dance, music, and theatre. In the big cities, prices are also slightly lower relative to the past three months, and the traffic is much better." – "About" – Source: VAMORO – "where & when to travel"
  • So You Want to Travel to Italy in August? (Free Italy Travel Advice) – "The entire city of Rome shuts down. It’s difficult to find a spot of empty sand on any beach.

I’ll share some tips below to help cope with the heat but the biggest thing is just to accept the heat. Aside from that, there are actually benefits to traveling to Italy in August. Yes, most Italians take their holidays for the month of August and head south to the sea or north to the mountains, so the cities will have less traffic. Hallelujah! Another bonus of the locals running from the cities? You can find good deals on hotels. It’s another story if you’re hoping for a mountain or sea vacation, though. Prices shoot up for hotels, flights, restaurants, and even souvenirs in the north and south of Italy so keep that in mind for your dream holiday in the land of la dolce vita.

Come on folks, do I really need to tell you why when you’ll move to Italy you will be ruined forever? Don’t you know that you won’t go anywhere else with the same spirit?

      • Milan Apartment Tour – "A little tour of my humble abode.  As I've mentioned before, the student housing system in Italy is really different from the US. I don't live in a dorm but a four bedroom apartment in a residence owned by my school. It has its pros and cons of course. I haven't posted a video in a while so I thought it would be cool to give you an inside look of where I'm living. Also hope to give all the new college students that are watching some organization ideas for their dorm." – Published on Sep 13, 2014
      • RACISM IN ITALY? | Being [AFRICAN AMERICAN] in Italia – "DISCLAIMER: My views and opinions on racism in Italy based off of my time living here. NEVER did I say there was NO Racism in Italy, I just said it was different and in my opinion less severe. I did address the fact that immigrants, specifically those seeking asylum and menial work are treated badly and I also gave reasons as to why I think that is. Fact of the matter is, migrants are treated badly in every country and that's a different issue in itself but this video isn't about immigration. The topic is racism (the discrimination of one person based SOLELY off of their race) in Italy and how it compares to that of my home country of the states. To answer your own questions, I've travelled around Italy but am based in Milan. I've been living here for a year. My views and opinions on racism in Italy based off of my time living here.

      • RACISM IN ITALY 2 | BLACK IN ITALY LIVECAST – "Seven months ago I published a video about my experience with race relations in Italy. Over 100,000 views later, I thought it would be interesting to reopen the conversation. I had received comments saying that because I am a woman, American, and had only lived here for a short period that my views regarding race relations were invalid. While my opinions on the issue remain mostly unchanged, I decided to invite some of my friends Italian and foreign, men and women to come online and discuss their opinions and experiences on race in the country LIVE. Join us as we discuss this issue and how it pertains to the wider context in the world, I guarantee it won't be boring :)" – "Bellamy is a born and raised Italian blogger and marketing agent;  http://www.afroitaliansouls.it/,
