About me

Hi and welcome. My name is Alessandra and Penna a Spillo is my blog.
I was born and grew up in Genova, Italy, by the sea, where I graduated from Law School and pursued a career as a lawyer.
I have always worked without any interruptions, even when my three sons, Matteo, Filippo and Andrea were born; there are almost five years between each of them.
I was always fascinated by the idea of ​​trying to live abroad, so, a few years ago, my husband and I started to play with the idea of moving the family to London for a year, and soon after we decided to stay indefinitely.
So here I am, Londoner by adoption, continuously discovering this vibrant and exciting city which I have loved from day one.
In my blog, you will read about my new life in London and my day to day discoveries in this incredible city full of events, secrets places, exhibitions, concerts, music, art, trends, creativity, where everything run incredibly fast and every day is different from the other.
You will also find my travel stories, because I have always adored wandering around the world and I appreciate it, even more, today that I live in London; thanks to London life, I have friends from everywhere and I enjoy visiting them.

So if you want to discover London with me day by day, and travel with me as well, follow me here on the blog and on my social media.
