Whether you like his work or not is obviously up to you, but I can personally vouch for
Raffaele has been a personal (you know, not just online) friend of mine for over 20 years... he has about that much experience photographing weddings and whatnot, is a genuinely nice guy and would most definitely deliver on the stereotypical "italian" experience you might expect .
That said, if you like my work: http://www.disciascio.com I'm from Italy, speak Italian better than i speak english, know Rome very well, would provide you with the peace of mind of working with a U.S. based photographer... with all that goes with it in terms of contracts, payments ... ability to sue me if I didn't deliver (I will deliver ) and would gladly host you for a couple of days in our 400 year old home in a medieval town in Abruzzo (2 hrs from Rome) for a more in-depth-experience if your travels allowed.
Just throwing it out there.
