Founded Italian Connection in 1993 and designed  cooking and walking tours throughout Italy. She is an avid walker and passionate about all things Italian. She survived 16 long winters in various freezing cold houses in romantic Tuscany, where she became an expert on Italian furnace parts.  Anita, together with Emanuele, lovingly restored an old stone house in Sicily, with a large kitchen in the former stable that overlooks a luxurious herb garden and fields of robust organic weeds enclosed by hand-chiseled stone walls. She looks forward to hosting our tours to festive home-cooked meals and cannoli making in their spacious kitchen. Her special passion is southern Italy, and Anita accompanies our walking and cooking tours in Sicily. She is the author of the blog Anita's Italy  which is filled with photos of Sicily and stories about life in Italy, as well as some favorite Italian recipes. Anita is currently at work on a book about her culinary experiences in Sicily called Savoring Sicily: A Culinary Quest.
