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!
