When living in an Italian apartment block, there are certain things that are just ‘known’, which we of course do not! So, when we saw a notice saying that the block’s heating would be turned on at the end of the September, we took that to mean….the heating will be put on at the end of September. Silly us! What it actually meant was that the heating will be turned on for everyone on October 15th! Strange and I’m not sure why they didn’t just put that on the notice because after asking our landlord he said that it goes on on October 15th every year, in pretty much all parts of Italy. Anyway, the moral of the story is…WE’VE GOT HEATING!!!! Hooray!
