Celebrating all things Italy

Hi, I’m Stacy, creator at Prayers & Piazzas since 2013.

Growing up in an Italian-American family, Italy was no big deal. (Why not? Read more here.) But that all changed during my second trip to Italy, when I unintentionally fell in love with the country, culture, language and people. Returning home, I set out to learn the language and immerse myself in all things Italy.

Prayers & Piazzas is part travel guide, part history guide, part travel journal, created to profess my love of Italy and to connect with others who feel the same. No matter where you are in the world, I hope that here, you are transported to Italy.
