Step One: Get to Know Us

Ciao, we're Australians, Lisa & Sam (Salvatore), and we're creating a simple life at the foot of the Alps in Piemonte Italy – along with our children, three cats and one very boofy white dog.

We’ve been exactly where you are: dreaming of creating a life in Italy. So I graduated with an art degree, and later became a full time renovator because it was a mutual passion I shared with my husband, I think renovating is in my  blood.

We started buying, renovating & selling homes in Australia. We realized that we could take these skills with us to Italy, restore a hamlet at the foot of the Alps, live a simple life, create a movement for others wanting to do the same thing, start our own website, and create a growing Group & Club for other renovators.

Now over 10 years later we host guests from all over the world, inspire thousands of keen renovators to share their own stories and follow their dreams, & lead a growing group of amazing people renovating homes in Italy. I feel like we have found a little slice of paradise, and we want to share it all with you!

‘You allow me to believe anything is possible if I set my heart to it.’

Renovating Italy updates frequently, so we’ve found a number of different ways to keep you up-to-date with what’s happening.

Of course you love great visuals, so Pinterest is a great source of inspiration. You’ll find created boards for your Home Sweet Home, Renovating, Living in Italy, and much more. Visit our Renovating Italy profile on Pinterest.

If you want to see what we’re up to day-to-day, you’ll also find us on Instagram. (Just don’t go there with an empty suitcase!)

Oh and last but not least we try to answer every email we receive so if there’s something you want to ask us or tell us, good, bad or ugly – Let us know! We’ll answer your questions to the best of our ability.
