Hello from London 

Hi, my name is Giovanni, another Italian living in London.... I am a flamenco amateur player and collector of flamenco guitars. Every year I go to Granada to learn flamenco and drink sangria in the Albaicin.

London is my favorite city. Is there a flamenco community in London? Would love to know about this for my next visit.

Ola' Juanito
Anch'io sono Italiano (sebbene di cittadinanza USA, e da molti anni armai vivo tra New York and San Francisco). Piacere di averti a bordo!

Please share some pics of your collection (your choice of the word "collector" had me all exercised), and if you have any, clips of your performance.

Ciao.

London has a Peña Flamenca. Some great guitarists, ordinary cante.

Why not go to Jerez, learn the real thing and drink fino?

Ciao,
che piacere, grazie per il tuo gentile benvenuto and sorry for the late reply.
You know, my collection is worryingly taking over, I have a Stephen Hill, Pedro Maldonado, Jeronimo Pena Fernandez, Jose Pedregosa, Manuel Bellido, Sanchis Carpio and more... (among others I have had a lovely Sanzano and a spectacular Jose Rodriguez Pena, also a Raya Pardo).
I have taken some pictures but it seems that I do not have sufficient permission to upload files... I have also lived in the States but alas it was not New York or San Francisco but deep south in Nashville TN... and no I do not play country music:))
A presto,
Giovanni

Welcome to the forum Giovanni from ice cold and snowy Massachusetts!
Here is an example of how cold it is --

Looking forward to hearing more about the flamenco scene in London,
and pictures of your flamenco guitar collection!

Best wishes!

Joana

Hey Giovanni!,

Good to you here and to see a familiar face.

He is not Joking about his guitar collection either. I have seen a picture! It puts some shops to shame!

Steve

Hi Giovanni,
I am taking my family to London, Venice, hopefully Florence , then back to London before coming back to the US. Have total 16 days for this vacation. Not sure if I will have a chance to pick up a flamenco guitar while in London. Everything in London is 1.5 times more expensive than in the US. I'll have one week in Italy, that will be fun. We visited Rome in the previous vacation.
