About Me

Ciao! I’m Janie, a wife and mom of four, a native Californian living in Milan, Italy. I love exploring my adopted country, learning about its people, history, and trying its delicious food. Mamma in Milan started as a hobby, an outlet to help me embrace my new home, while also sharing travel tips and recipes. Join me as I wander through Italy.

If you’d like to collaborate, have questions or comments, feel free to contact me. I’d love to hear from you!
