Ian Lahey was born in Milan, Italy, to an American father and an Italian mother. In the 80’s his dad took him and his brother on a long tour around Italy, he still has a green “Contrada dell’Oca” banner from Siena to remember that tour.
Ian teaches English Language and Literature in Italy. An incessant traveler, he has visited the country from coast to coast (which doesn't take much), and from head to toe (which is somewhat longer).
Florence, Naples, Rome, and then Venice, Verona and Genoa are his second homes but he will never admit this in the presence of a tax agent. Although he's visited many times he never tires of them and of the stories, both ancient and modern, which these places tell.
These stories he re-tells, sometimes as they were, other times hidden beneath the veil of imagination and scientific speculation, but always with a good sprinkle of humor.
He can often be spotted taking long walks with his wife around his hometown near Udine, and can be easily led astray with offerings of fresh beer or Dr. Who marathons.
