“Loading my interview onto your site, super, great for me.”

Marco Bendandi (13th December 2020)

Listening to Marco Bendandi takes you straight to the warm sunshine of Italy. We talk about coronavirus and how it was handled in Italy – this interview is right at the beginning of the first lockdowns. We go on to discuss family life, school days and Italian politics.

His hobbies include Italian Style marching drums and pizza making, with recipes passed down from his grandmother.

We complete our chat with some good – and not so good – points about living in Italy.

Sit and relax to this lovely chat.

Recording this social history, chatting to different people about a whole host of subjects is a real pleasure, such an interesting and I think worthwhile project for people to listen to both now and in years to come.
