I wish I had known...
That I never needed a translation of my diploma in Norway just a "dichiarazione di valore" which is a proof that it is what it says, from the embassy in Norway

This goes for all Italian universities, learn Italian and find a Italian course, you'll find much more local friends, and the experience will be more different than staying home..

Personal spending habits
Housing is just more expensive, while in Oslo you can find an apartment for 400euros and a bit pluss, I feel luckey to find a central appartment for 500euros here... Telephone was more expensive because I use a refill card here while back home I have a contract, but still the prices on calls are higher..

Use www.secondamano.it and www.ebay.it for what it is worth!! Do you need anything from AC, matress, sofa to clothes they have it! If you need to go to IKEA, you can rent a van there, cost you about 30euros and you can use it for 2hours. Want to rent car cheap to give for short trips, www.sixti.it, 10euros per day (max100km) in a Fiat Punto!!
