Hey everyone.
I need to give a presentation on Tuesday for my Senior Class about what it's like growing up in Italy and in such a cultured environment. I moved away a few years ago, but since then, I'm sure I'd have different habits if I was there now then when I was there for middle school.
So, tell me, if you live in Italy, what do you and your friends do in your spare time? What is high school there like? College?

I'm in an emergency situation at the office:

I am an art consultant and my CEO is about to go on LIVE TV and she doesn't know how to pronounce an italian name: GIOIA.
If you could tell me the correct Italian pronunciation, I'd be forever grateful!!

UPDATE: [Nov. 5th, 2005|10:22 pm]

Well, found out more about my great grandfather. The name is actually Brancati. The writing on the birth certificate as very hard to read, and the "n" looked like a "u" so we thought it was Braucoti. Oh, and there's an "a" instead of an "o". We found him on He's the top one.

Click here

It cost like, $100 to actually get info on him. But my grandpa's got someone that can do it for free. So, at least I found him.

I just found out from my aunt today, that, my great grandfather, Ettore Braucoti, was in the Mafia. Apparently he was a big time drug dealer, and all that stuff. My great grandmother was married to Mr. Dringenberg (A German immigrant), where my family gets its last name from, and Ettore wanted her so badly, and later on, Mr. Dringenberg just suddenly disappeared. My grandfather has been in New York this whole past month, and met up with my great uncle Sammy, and my grandfather asked if he had a picture of him, so he could see what he looks like. Sammy said "Go ask the FBI, I'm sure they have a picture of him on file...". The fucking FBI has files on this guy. And apparently he was pretty abusive towards my great grandmother, a pretty bad guy. I also found out my grandfather found out that his mom wasn't even his real mom whenever he was 30. My grandpa spent most of his child and teen years in Boarding School also.

All this time I've always wondered and kind suspected my family was in the Mafia, came out to be true. So this is where all those "wanting to hurt people" feelings come from. ;)

So, if anyone wants to help me out find out more about him, search him up with me. Ettore Braucoti was the name.

So, yeah.
