Da oggi iniziano a collaborare due nuove redattrici. Una è una vera giornalista, l’altra una gentilissima concittadina di lingua inglese che si presta a tradurre, informare e stimolare gli stranieri d’Angera e dintorni sui temi di interesse per il nostro territorio.
There are quite a number of foreigners living in Angera. Some new, perhaps still finding their way about, but who chose to live here because of the attractive location. Others who have been here for years, and those who have married Italians. We also have a number of foreigners who are working in Angera, who we would be happy to hear from.
This part of the website is dedicated to
those people, some of whom speak good Italian, others who are learning and perhaps struggling. Here we have a forum in English where we can express our opinions and ideas.
In less than a year there will be municipal elections in Angera. If we want to make Angera a better place, you should tell us what you think and send your suggestions and criticisms. Let us do some positive constructive thinking! All suggestions for improvements will be welcome so that future administrators can take note.
Below you can find an overview of what is currently being discussed.
We look forward to your input!
The site is set up as follows:
Home page – Who we are (the young, the elderly, who works in Angera, who lives in Angera) – Where we live (environment, villages and districts, the neighbours, the institutions) – Tourism (come to Angera, do it in Angera – what!?) – Treasure Hunt – Identikit – Survey – Flash – Stories – Mobile Photos – Contacts
Much is being discussed and below you can find an overview of what is going on. The only “foreigner” I have spotted so far is Tetyana who made the effort of writing in Italian to outline the difficulties of the gravel on the lakeside promenade – how many shoes she has ruined and the difficulties to push wheelchairs on such a surface, etc. Thank you Tetyana for bringing something to our attention that perhaps the average resident would not notice. There is the idea of an artist, Alberto, who negotiated a lower rent to use an empty shop window to show his paintings in the central pedestrian area. This is useful for him and brightens up the little street – awaiting the return of it becoming alive and animated once more. We live in hope!
