Elizabeth Griffin and family

Elizabeth Griffin

I moved to Italy 15 years ago. Or really, I came to Italy on vacation in 1992 and decided to stay. I met my husband, from central Italy months later. We live outside Trieste, on the border between Italy and Slovenia in the far NE corner of the country. We send our sons (ages 7 and almost 9) to a school in the Slovene language. The Italian public school system in the area offers schools in Slovene, a rule left over from the post WWII era that has somehow remained in place. We are raising our children in a tri-lingual environment, one language of which only the children speak, not mommy and daddy.

I work as Director of the Italian American Assoc of the region Friuli Venezia Giulia and write in my spare time, that is, from 3-5 am.
