Welcome to The Como Companion. This site will grow into a newsletter in English for residents and visitors to Como, its lake and surroundings. Congratulations to those of you who join us from the start – I am certain you will see the site rapidly grow in content and usefulness.
This newsletter aims to share and communicate local information amongst the English-speaking community (both permanent and temporary).
My hope is that the newsletter becomes a true information exchange with as many as possible contributing to the content and discussions. I am open from the start to share editorial and administrative duties and would welcome all offers to assist. I am seeking collaborators who may wish to contribute articles, offer technical assistance, help define editorial strategy or just spread the word about us.
I recognise that the newsletter needs much more development before it becomes an invaluable ‘companion’ to the local English-speaking community but with your help we can speed through its stages of infancy and adolescence towards a glorious early maturity.
The founding objectives of the newsletter are to:
- enrich our experience of living in or near Como through the mutual sharing of information and opinions.
- make our contributors’ combined knowledge of Como’s facilities and attractions available to all including visitors or newly-arrived residents.
- support the participation and engagement of our readers with local commerce and cultural or recreational activities.
