Assisi and First day of classes!

Buongiorno!

Now that almost everyone has arrived, we are beginning to get into the swing of things! Today, we had the great pleasure of visiting Assisi, the town St. Francis and St. Claire. Lorenzo took us on a wonderful tour throughout the town and into the church of St. Claire and the Basilica di San Francesco, allowing the students to continue to immerse themselves in Italian history.

This afternoon, classes begin! Ahead of us is an exciting evening of further getting to know each other- through our artistic disciplines! Today, we are taking a closer look into the creative writing side of Spoleto Study Abroad. I’ve asked our writing students to answer some fun questions in order for us to get to know each other a bit better!
