Wii in Rome?

My parents are living in Rome for a couple of years and I wanted to get them a Wii for christmas. Originally I was going to get one here in the UK and ship it over, but the prices have doubled due to short supply.

I was wondering if they've been selling out in Italy in the same way? Is there any way I could buy one locally for them without flying over there?

Lonely Canadian travelling through Rome... in dire need of HOCKEY

Hello, I'm posting on behalf of a friend who is currently travelling through Europe, and will be in Rome next week.

She's Canadian, from Edmonton specifically, and if you follow Hockey you'll understand that she NEEDS to watch the Stanley Cup Finals.

Personally I think she may be out of luck, but I promised to do my best to help her.

Can anyone recommend a bar/hotel/restaurant/television store that might be showing the hockey game?  Or an area of the city that might cater to American/Canadian tourist and thus she'd be more likely to find a place?  Or even bars good for watching soccer games that would at least have the right cable or satellite channels.

thanks so much - any help would be appreciated!!

Hi, I posted before just before I left from America, I'm in Rome (have been for a few weeks) and am actually pretty miserable. Anyone have any advice? I don't like pretty much any of the modern city and the people have definitely been getting on my nerves. I guess part of it is the fact I was placed with a terrible family for the first few weeks, but I don't think it's going to go away. ::sigh::

Hi ::waves::

I'm (obviously) new to the group. I'm going to be spending next college year (my sophomore fall and spring semesters) in Rome, first going to a language school and then attending the American University of Rome. I'd love to hear from anyone willing to offer advice, their opinions, or even who just want to talk. Pretty much everything you would want to know about me can be found on my info page ^.^

living in italy

I've been searching through "interests" trying to find a community for people living in Italy-- since I can't find one, I'm starting one-- living_in_italy. If you're interested, come and check it out!! Thanks!

Well hello everyone :)
I'm new to this communtiy (as well as many others, lol) and am on the quest for information about Italy (most particularly Rome)

I am a 21 year old female student at Oregon State University in the USA, and will be leaving to Italy this saturday. (i know, late to be looking for travel tips!)
I will be living there studdying Italian (which i have never learned before) and also art history. I will be there a month (july 5-August 5) living in Rome (but traveling on weekends to 4 or 5 cities total)

anyways, I was wondering if anyone had any tips for traveling and living (short term as a college student) in Italy. absolutely ANY info would be greatly welcomed! :) Thank you! :)

(cross posted in a few travel communities, if you guys have some good places i can pose this same question, i would appreciate you pointing me in a new direction as well) :)

ciao a tutti

non ho ben capito se sono l'unico ad aver aderito per ora, e soprattutto se sono l'unico italiano vivente in roma di questa comunità.
comunque un poco di inglese lo parlo, ma mi vergogno perchè il livello non è proprio eccezionale.
se non capite alzate la mano!
(bella questa: se non capite come potreste dirlo? d'altronde ai corsi di inglese che ho fatto negli states lo dicevano sempre... e naturalmente nessuno alzava la mano)

adesso vi posto una mia foto:
