How can I become an Au Pair in Italy?

Is there any place in this world, where people are always smiling?
Yes, it is Milan, in Italy. In this city there is a legal requirement to smile all the time - with the exceptions of hospital visits. Sounds odd? Don’t worry - Italy has much more to offer than ingenious legislation. 
The Au Pair program is a cultural exchange for young people, craving to see the world and get to know different cultures. Thus, it is expected that the Au Pair is a young person who hasn’t started a family yet and has neither children nor a spouse. 
The applicants should also be of a different than the Italian nationality and know the Italian language to the extent allowing them to communicate with the Host Family and local people.
