Sometimes you just fall into a new activity. I have begun translating and editing the English version of a new Italian web tv portal that promotes local, little-know tourist itineraries for Milan and its surrounding province. One of the creators of Tracce.tv used to be an English student of mine.
This city is not just for fashionistas or industrialists. Milan is filled with hidden treasures: working farmhouses in the city, tours of Milan’s historical libraries, the best bakeries for panettone, bike tours to Gaggiano, the “little Venice” on the outskits of the city. And so on. Each itinerary includes a video and, I’m proud to say, the subtitles are mine. The brand new site is not yet perfect….needs some tweaking to become more user-friendly, but please have a look at it and send your feedback. www.tracce.tv/
