"Mamma Mia!” aims to open a debate on issues often ignored or little known in Italy. Since the exclamation “Mamma Mia!” was first used in this great country, this blog hopes to remind readers that it’s more than just the name of a song or a successful musical.
Join me as I delve into a world of babies, breasts, milk and men seen from a sort-of foreign perspective.
I’m a mother who until 2007 had worked for 15 years as a journalist in different parts of the world. I was born in Rome of foreign parents (father of Chinese-Caribbean extraction, mother Swiss). My education (British school in Italy, universities in the UK and Switzerland) and my work (mainly in TV) have given me the opportunity to observe the world from the perspective of someone who lays claim to three passports but is not quite from anywhere.
