About Rafael Di Furia

I’m an Italian American born in the USA but now living in Italy after many years of going through the process to become a citizen of Italy through my Italian ancestry. After many years of working towards my goal (including many sleepless nights), I feel truly blessed to be able to say I received my recognition of Italian citizenship and can call Italy my home. I’ve been coming to Italy since I was a child but have officially lived in Italy since 2017. I first moved to Merano in the region of  Alto Aidge/Südtirol but now reside in Rovigo, Veneto.

2009 was the year that I left the USA and started my new life abroad. While there are times that I do miss my birth country and have absolutely zero negative feelings towards the US, I’ve yet to feel enough of a pull to go back for a visit. I was quite fortunate to see what I felt was a good amount of the USA, but the main reason for not having been back is becuase I feel as though there is so much to see and expierence as an “expat” living life abroad, especially in Italy. I could even say I’ve grown comfortable with being slightly uncomfortable as a “foreigner”. 

Professionally my background is in Video/Multimedia and Marketing and I’ve worked in various positions during my career starting as a camera grip, to working as a camera operator for live broadcasts and editor all the way up to directing a television weekly news show. But my passion has been to work with smaller companies startups and individuals such as musicians and public speakers to help them with their video needs, for promo, internal use, fundraising and more. Seeing the enjoyment on my clients faces as they see their production come life is quite a special treat.  

About The NYAG Project

The Not Your Average Globetrotter project is bassed on content produced and shared for free online for people who are interested in living abroad, “expat life” and especially living in Italy. Because moving abroad and especially moving to Italy is quite the undertaking, I wanted to share information and experiences with others in hopes of helping people to avoid a difficult transition into life abroad. 

During my own research I found the content I was looking for simply didn’t exist or was not presented in a medium that I found easy to consume. Because of my experience in television production and passion for the world of video, I thought it I may as well be the one and make the content myself and try to help others with the information I already have and sharing what I learn along the journey. 

I try to keep my content as informational as possible while still having fun with it and entertaining for the viewer. During my search for content before I started my own project, I found many creators focused only on the glamorous side of life abroad while forgetting about the daily realities that people face in a new country, learning everything from the beginning all over again. There’s more than just the “Pizza Pasta and Amore” Another hope for these videos is to help viewers know that they’re not totally alone, there are other people going through the same struggles as they are with the same questions that they have and to build a comunity of people around the world to share information with one another.
