Folks are also asking about time zones.
Rome is on Central European Time (CET) and is currently on "Legal Time", which is their expression for Daylight Savings Time.
There are 6 hours time difference between EST and CET. Rome is 6 hours ahead. So to give you a sense for times:
Our "normal waking hours" are roughly from 7:00 am to 11:00 pm local time. Here's what this works out to where you are...
7:00 am to 11:00 pm in Rome, Italy
1:00 am to 5:00 pm in Charlotte NC, or Philadelphia PA
12:00 midnight to 4:00 pm in Cincinatti, OH or Chicago, IL
11:00 pm to 3:00 pm in Spokane WA, or Portland, OR
PS Please do call us, but please do keep the time difference in mind!
