Maaike is one of the visitors who contributes the most to making our Facebook page so popular. Over the last year or two Maaike has added so many lovely comments and a number of gorgeous photos too.

I really feel so overjoyed when I see the passion of people like Maaike for Italy. Although she is from Holland her love for Italy is so evident. She tries to visit Italy two or three times a year and knows the country really well.

When I started my websites and my Facebook page my intention was to share my love for Italy.

That has changed completely.

Because of people like Maaike and many others it is no longer just about me and "my Italy." It is about their Italy, your Italy, my Italy....everybody's Italy!

I really feel part of something much bigger now... a community? No, more than that... a family and what more could any Italian like me ever ask for!

If you aren't part of Maria's (that's me) family then join us on Facebook, like the websites, bookmark us and become a part of our Italy and let us become a part of your Italy.

Don't worry about saying to much or being to loud - that can never happen. This is an Italian family...the more noise the better!

Now let me share some of Maaike's photos with you and a few photos from other people too. Remember to please click like below if you enjoy them.
