THEME PARKS IN ITALY. I can answer all questions regarding attractions, restaurants, shops, accomodation for Gardaland, Mirabilandia and Movieland Studios, the three leading theme parks in Italy, and about water parks in the Lake Garda/Rimini riviera area. Although I now live in London, UK, I'm a native north Italian and have lived there till the age of 26 visiting Gardaland twice a year, Mirabilandia and Movie Studios every other year and constantly keeping abreast of all the news. I can help with questions regarding theme and water parks in south Italy although I've never been there.

Experience

Having visited those parks so often, I can advise on the best timing to go, not to miss rides, best restaurants and accomodation. I also regularly visit theme parks abroad, especially those in the UK and US. I have always been a theme park buff, and started learning English at he age of 10 by (going to school and) writing to theme parks abroad requesting brochures and material which I would thoroughly read through for months!

Organizations
I am currently employed with a leading media consultancy in London, UK.

Education/Credentials
I hold a degree in Business and Management - majoring in Marketing and a few professional qualifications. I am mothertongue Italian and speak fluent English and French, and can reply to questions in German and Spanish.
