Welcome to Prayers and Piazzas
Prayers and Piazzas is where I profess my love of all things Italy: travel, culture, history, language. Every Tuesday I publish the series A Snapshot From… featuring a photo or two from my travels around Italy and a cultural tidbit. Join us here weekly for a quick, virtual trip to one of the most beloved countries in the world.
But Italy and Italian are really the stars of the show.

I’m Stacy “di Anna” Pollard: wife, mom, friend, blogger, reader, Italiana, introvert. I love to read in the sun, write in the early morning, study Italian in small chunks all day long, and travel. But above all that, my husband of 25 years and kids (ages 21 (!), 18 and 12) are my top priority.
The official stuff: I have a journalism degree from the University of Southern California, and a teaching credential from the University of California, San Diego. I worked in corporate public relations for two years in Los Angeles before following a passion to become a teacher. I loved teaching middle school for four years, but when my first-born came along, I only had eyes for him, and became a full-time mom. Raising my kiddos has been my life’s work and the most important thing I’ve ever been a part of.
My signature strengths: #1 love of learning; #2 curiosity; #3 appreciation of beauty and excellence. I hope you find all those here.
