Broken links: Since November, 2005, I have written over 300+ blog entries with 1,000's of corresponding links/URLs for Moving2Italy2, covering a varied and wide range of topics. In the event that you come across a broken link or a non-functioning link/URL, please post a comment and report the non-functional link. I wish to thank you in advance for assisting me in the ongoing maintenance and the updating of this successful and informative blog.

It should be noted that travelers to Italy and Expats living in Italy may in their respective travels or sometime or another will attempt to speak or communicate with medical or dental or emergency services personnel while in Italy. Both my wife and I have been seen by dentists, doctors and other medical professionals since we have moved to Italy.

We live just outside a town of 8,500 individual and approximately 24 kilometers (or 15 miles) from the small/medium size city of Arezzo in the region of Toscana/Tuscany. However, we have been surprised by by the number of medical and professional people we have encountered that state that they speak little or NO English. Fortunately, we speak enough Italian to make ourselves understood or that the medical individuals that we have met understand enough English or French to understand our specific medical condition.

I would strongly recommend that a traveler to Italy or an Expat living here with a pre-existing medical condition or symptoms to write down their specific medical condition in both English and Italian. This can be accomplish by using either using the medical phrases above or an online dictionary. Then, print this information and keeping the printout with you, have an extra copy in either your luggage or carried by a traveling companion and/or leaving a copy with a family member or a friend wherever you live.
