Subject:	Referece for the Campodonico Family
Dear Charlotte, 
I have been asked by Flaminia to provide a family reference for her file.  I have no 
hesitation in doing so. 
I was a member of the Campodonico family for more than 15 months.  Yes, one should be 
saying, I was an employee, but that never seemed the case.  From the moment I arrived in 
Italy I felt like I belonged.  The family and extended families were always helpful, 
considerate and a mutual respect was always given.  This led to a loving relationship being 
built with the children. 
Giac, Gobi and Gi all require assistance with homework, with an emphasis being placed on 
English.  They are all sports minded and enjoy their afternoon sports activities.  Keeping to a 
routine during the school months enables the children to cope with their agendas. Holidays 
are more relaxed for the children. Many hours are spent on the beach swimming, fishing 
etc.  Over the summer months Fla and Ste both have business commitments so longer hours 
are required to be spent with the children.  This is balanced over the winter months with 
working hours decreasing.   
I am sure anyone who takes a position with the Campodonico Family will have a rewarding 
and fruitful stay.   
Patrina Philben, 
T :-)
