  1. Hi Amelia your information are right..... about the "gelateria" you should check the the list of this shop on AIC....they know how take care with people that can't eat gluten. No more bed experince in Gelateria! I want to take more information about coffee because my mom, that is celiac, drinks coffee every day in bar or restaurant and she doesn't have any problem. but I want to be sure of this..so I will let you know. I love gorgonzola and I eat just italian gorgonzola (DOC)....because it is safe for us as you said and it is really good CIAO MATTEO
  2. Hi Kristen I am really happy that you could to a abroad experience for ur study in Italy...I did the same but in Spain... the most important year of my life. I can tell you to see this web page when you understand a little bit italian http://www.aiclazio.it/ in the while I made a research for you.... Albella Salute e Gourmet indirizzo: Via Igea, 2 citt

    Hi Grace, sorry If I write you only know but I was really busy at work this month that I did not have time to visit the Forum so much. You are a Mix between North and South of Italy.... Which part do you feel more?? norht or South? LOL. I want to answer to your question.... for my experience I can say that Italy is one of the place where you can find a lot of people that know about gluten. In Italy every months a lot of people find that they have celiac disease. We have an association that can give you a lot of information about products and restaurant were you can go to eat. At the farmacy you can find a lot of different brand with gluten free products. In my country Italian people with this kind of disease have 130 euro every month from pubblic health(dalla sanita' pubblica) to buy all kind of food gluten free. That is really good because it' s really expencive. Look if you go in Italy for turism you can find a lot of place that cook gluten free products . If you go to live in Italy you can find a lot of gluten free food in the farmacy. If you go in a restaurant or in same place where the dont know about celiac disease well don' t worry there are so many dishes on the menus that you have just to choose!The most important thing to do, if they don't know about Gluten, is to ask if there is any "farina" or " Pane". For me in Italy you can feel save to eat gluten free... Voglio continuare questo commento in Italiano... visto che capisci bene l'italiano non avrai problemi a leggere questa pagina web che e' dell'associazione italiana celiaci. Puoi trovare tutte le informazioni che avrai bisogno sui ristoranti e altri posti dove andare a mangiare. Anche il prontuario degli alimenti senza glutine in commercio e delle ricette italiane con prodotti senza glutine.... questo e' il sito: http://www.celiachia.it/ Se hai qualsiasi domanda fammi sapere! Ciao MATTEO
