This Saturday we spent the day getting our bearings of the city, Spoleto. In the morning we ate breakfast in the convent then took a stroll to Piazza Mercado. The students had a chance to talk with locals ordering cappuccinos and pastries, soaking in and tasting some the deliciousness that Spoleto has to offer. After the trip to the Piazza the class went to the grocery store to get some essentials for their dorms, such as snacks, toiletries, and refreshments.
Then lunch today we welcomed in our last 6 students from to the program! These ladies from Charleston SC had some tough luck getting here considering the weather and plane cancellations, but we are so happy to finally have them with us. Later this afternoon our Art & Architecture professor, Lorenzo, gave a brief educational tour of the city. We went back in history, 1st Century BC to be exact, and saw the Roman theatre, churches, aqueducts, and the main castle at the top of the mountain. It was a beautiful afternoon to say the least!
Here are some pictures of the students throughout the day! hope you enjoy.
