Rick Zullo is an American who moved to Rome and started a blog as a way to help understand his new surroundings. Over the years, Rick’s blog has become a resource for both expats and visitors in Rome; helping them navigate the more challenging aspects of life in the Eternal City. Not just the practical advice and sightseeing, but also a good measure of “daily life,” and the things that a foreigner might find puzzling about Italian culture. Some of the most popular posts have been on the following subjects: dating in Italy; fighting the Italian bureaucracy; Italian superstitions; learning the Italian language; and regional Italian cuisine.

Customer Reviews


WOW….The Fatal Charm of Italy Podcast is flat out awesome. Good production quality. Easy to listen. Very impressed Rick. Keep bringing it.

Zullo website

Probably the best website for those wanting a bridge to Italy. As an ex-pat, he gets it. Subscribing to his website is fun because he regularly has something new up there to learn. He doesn’t just post once a month or so. It’s worth checking his site frequently. He’s pretty objective, has a lot of great guest bloggers. I haven’t really seen a better website.

REAL info about living here - Plus ME!

Rick is a terrific guy and really an expert on moving to and living in Italy. I’ve been here almost 8 years and if I had a question, he’s who I’d ask. Websites and blogs providing a Disneyland view of living here are beyond irritating and this podcast gives you myriad perspectives on what it’s really like. The glory of the food and scenery and the agony of the bureaucracy and gas prices. Living here ain’t like vacationing here, folks - but there must be a reason that Rick’s interviewees (including me!) keep coming back for more. Check my interview out in "FCI 019 – Finding a Job in Italy with Liz Knight”. Rick, you are putting us all to shame with this series; well done!!
