Via Regina 26 is a contemporary soap opera. It's about the people living in flats in a late 19th century building in the centre of Milan. There are six floors and four flats on each of them. The chief character is Gelsomina, the caretaker, who looks after the building. She is helped by her husband Angelo, who can turn his hand to most things. They have two children, Renato, who studies medicine, and Chiara, who is 15. They have also a foster child of 9, Monica, who is very shy as yet. Let's see what happens to them in their everyday lives. The Italian used in Via Regina 26 is the sort of language you can't usually find in normal textbooks as it's real Italian conversation, with all the difficulties and charm of the spoken language. Every day log on to our website to read a new episode of this soap, you'll be surprised at the results: your knowledge of Italian will increase by leaps and bounds, and Italian won't feel like a foreign language anymore.
*DISCLAIMER: Via Regina 26 is entirely a work of fiction. Any resemblance to any person living or dead is purely coincidental.
