Lousie Badger is an arts admininistrator and writer from Britain. She and her husband decided to move to Italy after years spent holidaying there. In 2007 they found a run down villa in Tuscany they were keen to buy. But it came with one condition - if they wanted to buy the house, they had to take in the previous owner's dog who still lived there. So began their years with dog Todo in Tuscany. They also met and befriended locals in the area who were sculptors, singers and musicians. Louise wrote a book about the adventure called "Todo in Tuscany" (Hachette, 2012).
