Benvenuti a Spoleto!

We are all together in Spoleto! As soon as the students arrived we went straight to lunch
at Hotel Clitunno, which houses Ristorante Lorenzo where students eat lunch and dinner
each day.

 The convent, our home for the program!

Students are in different rooms around the convent and each room is named after a fruit (in
Italian of course). The rooms are Mela (Apple), Pesca (Peach), Arancia (Orange), Ananas
(Pineapple), Fragola (Strawberry), Limone (Lemon), Melone (Melon), Cocomero
(Watermelon), and Lampone (Raspberry).

After lunch, students settled into their rooms, rested and got to know their roommates.
We had a more formal introduction of faculty and fellows and a brief overview of the
program from Jill and Lorenzo Muti. This was followed by icebreakers, such as playing telephone in Italian!

After our games and introductions, students were given a tour of Spoleto.
We enjoyed a delicious gelato for dessert and are back at the convent settling in
before tomorrow's day trip to Assisi.
