Rossella Rosa, owner of Italian Rhapsody

My name is Rossella and I live in Edmonds (WA). I grew up in Casale di Scodosia in the countryside of Veneto region in the Northeastern Italy.

Veneto was my home for 28 years.

My family has a farm with a huge garden and I spent my childhood immersed in nature.

Time passed and after I got my degree in Management Engineering and a PhD in Robotics I felt like something was missing in my life. Food started to remind me precious memories.

When I moved to the United States I spent a lot of time in the kitchen recreating the flavors of my home country.  The interest in the historical and cultural aspects of the recipes was a natural consequence.

Encouraged by the great support of my friends fascinated by the hidden Italian gems that I told them to visit and I realized time was ripe to run my own business: Italian Rhapsody.

I personally design all my tours and plan every single detail because I want to show travelers how a native will enjoy and live the real culture of my home-country.

Tour Italy with me!
