to AWAR Member's secure Area

Many of our members are long-time residents of Rome who understand the challenges of adapting to a new culture, learning a new language, and needing friendship and support. Our social events and varied activities offer a way for new members to find a community of friends, including others like themselves, but also members who can offer their accumulated knowledge of the city and country.

In addition, an exclusive benefit of membership is our manual

  • Living in Roma is a compendium of practical information, with useful illustrations, compiled from material provided by AWAR members, past and present. Published in the Members’ Area, it is based on firsthand knowledge plus material researched and selected to provide valuable information of particular use to newcomers in a single volume.

  • Another benefit of membership is our Orientation Day for newcomers, led by members who are long-time residents of Rome. Information and insights are exchanged and participants can relate their experiences and ask all those questions for which they have been seeking answers

  • Also available to members in the Members’ Area is a list of services offered by our members, a collection of recommendations from members on all aspects of life in Rome, and links to selected websites not only about Rome but also related to health and education.
