Backstory

Melinda Gallo

I currently live above the Arno river and work as a technical writer for a French software company while I focus on my fiction and non-fiction writing projects.

I initially came to Florence in 1997 to study Italian for three months, yet ended up staying for two years. After a five year hiatus in the US, I returned to Florence in 2004 and now consider it "my beloved city."

When I am not in Florence, I am in Paris where I also live for the past couple of years. For that reason, I started another blog, My Heart in Two Places, where I write about life as a double expat
