Spend any time around Italians in Italy and you are sure to hear one word come up in conversation again and again and again. The word, ALLORA, has such a silvery sound to it - especially when spoken with that wonderful melodic Italian accent. Google Translate lists a number of different translations - "then", "therefore", "now", "at that time", "in those days", and "in that case". I would translate the word as "Well". So, ALLORA, I hope you enjoy this account of my time in Italy.
