No matter how robust and solid your home may be, even if you had it built with strength in mind, there may come a time where you need roofing contractors to fix the damages. Of course, since you had the roof of your home built with strength after all, it’s not like the damage will come from age or something related, but more like from natural calamities like hurricanes and tornadoes. Sometimes, the winds brought about by these calamities are so strong that even well-built homes cannot survive their onslaught.

If your roof gets damaged and needs some repairing, regardless of what has cause the damage, you will need to hire professional roofing contractors to fix it for you. This is because professional roofing contractors are better equipped in fixing up roofs than regular carpenters.

Has It Been A Year Already?

One year ago, we were arriving in Rome to eventually make our way to Trento and a new chapter in our lives. So how have things shaped up in that time?

The Job

I love my new job. It is wonderful to work with a team that is big enough to resolve programming issues without me having to try my hand at crappy coding. I love my colleagues and sincerely enjoy their company. The project itself is very interesting, as we build apps that are meant to be useful to the local communities.

Beyond the project itself, I love being in a university setting again. I had forgotten how much I enjoy the intellectual stimulation that comes from frequenting smart young people. Plus, the University of Trento has an excellent reputation and so attracts lots of good students.

My only regret is that this is only a two-year contract and we’re already at the halfway mark. How did that happen?

The City

If you enjoy living in smaller cities, as I do, then you will understand why I love Trento. It is small enough to be easily visited in a day (unless you include all the suburbs) and while it does not offer the same level of tourist-y sites that a city like Verona does, that just means that we have much fewer tourists invading our city. Except at Christmas time, when people come here for the Christmas Market, and then it’s hardly walkable in the historical city center. Sigh. How do the other cities in Italy manage?

In spite of its small size, though, Trento has plenty of interesting activities going on all year long, whether cultural, social, or just plain marketwise. This summer, for example, there were free rock concerts every Tuesday. This autumn, we will be attending four different operas (two of which will be held in Bolzano). I particularly love the little markets that they set up every once in a while. There, you will find stalls for all sorts of local products, such as foods from all over Italy.

In addition, Trento is situated in the pre-Alps, which means that we are surrounded by mountains and our vistas are of even bigger mountains. For someone who grew up in the flat plain of Montreal, the local scenery is exotic and gorgeous. I just cannot get enough of looking at mountains.

Trento is situated in the North-Eastern part of Italy, so day trips up to now have all been around this area. While it is not as well situated for these kinds of trips as Verona – which is a major train station, housing trains going east-west and north-south – it is still fairly easy to get to some interesting towns and cities in the region. Up to now, we have visited the following places:

  • Firenze (Florence)
  • Venezia (Venice)
  • Verona
  • Bolzano (aka Bozen in German, as it is in the German-speaking area of Italy)
  • Rovereto
  • Malé
  • Riva del Garda
  • Malcesine
  • Monte Bondone
  • Monte Terlago

Of course, …
