Running a business in Italy / FOR SALE: Welcome to Sulmona
« Last post by Tartufa on February 18, 2019, 04:49:20 PM »
Dear Friends of Sulmona,
The time has come for us to move on.
It has been a great adventure but for various personal reasons, mainly to do with family, time constraints & distance, we cannot continue to run in the way which we want.
In the meantime, we are committed to keeping the business and the website going for the benefit of our valued clients and partners, but the fact is we need to find a buyer who will be able to take it to the next level.
If you think you might enjoy running WTS, and you are interested in more info, donít hesitate to get in touch with us at

As usual things here are as clear as mud. No sooner had I posted this than I got a call from my contacts at Sintab saying that the local ASL here have not yet properly understood the new rules and best not to promise anything 'fresh'.  If you do want advice and help then get in touch with Sintab but it seems not to be quite as exciting as we had thought.  Sorry...

We would be happy to support you through the presentation of the NIAS and in the implementation of the Haccp (food safety) procedures. Get in touch at
Running a business in Italy / Re: Freelance English Teachers

My annual post it seems:

Are you a self-employed, qualified & experienced, mother-tongue English teacher currently living in the Sulmona / Valle Peligna area? We are receiving more requests for single lessons and for groups than we can cope with - especially for school children needing classes in the afternoons. If you fit the bill, please do get in touch. If you know someone who might be interested, do please share this post. Please note that this is not an offer of employment - you need to be a well-connected, self-starter for this one ;)

My website is

PS We do also get requests for French & German 'repetizioni'.  Not Spanish though...funnily enough  ;D
I'm bumping this up so anyone who did not see it the first time around has a chance to respond.  Any of you out there getting an income, or would like to get an income, from a holiday rental?  It's not as easy as it looks so come along and hear from a couple of old hands...
Well done I wish you both ( the book launch and the author) every success.

I'll certainly point anyone I hear of, who's thinking of setting up business, in your direction.
Many of you will know that our very own David Brenner of has written a book. We're hosting a book launch and author Q&A for him here in Sulmona (AQ) on Wednesday, July 26th in the afternoon.  If you have a holiday home which you rent out, or would like to rent out, or are looking to offer this as a more constant business activity & source of income then why not come along? 

The event has been published on Facebook

Anyone can read the info - even those without Facebook profiles of their own.

We've also written a book review with a link to buy the book itself on our website:

It promises to be an interesting and constructive session and will also be a good opportunity to meet up, offer support and swap ideas. You can get in touch with us at to book your place.
