Announcing the birth!

birth cartoonWelcome 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.

Do not hesitate to reply, like or follow!



About comocompanion

I am an Englishman in Como, Northern Italy - definitely both a Euro and Italophile with an interest in modern history, walks in the hills and mountains, and food and wine. I favour 'slow' tourism alongside of 'slow' food.
