Amidst our crazy schedules and weekend field trips, there are plenty of ways to enjoy the city whether it be just for the day or a few hours. Here are some of my favorites from the past few weeks:
This was much like our first pasta night where we learned how to make gnocchi (except this was obviously with ravioli and fettuccine). Everyone loved helping out from making the dough to stuffing the pasta with spinach and ricotta cheese. Personally, my favorite part is trying all the different sauces Anna Rita makes for us (bolognese, butter with sage, salmon, and much more).
A Night At the Orchestra!
Last Monday night, our class was able to see the orchestra play at the Santa Cecilia Concert Hall (designed by Renzo Piano). Between the beautiful setting and the peaceful music, it was an extremely relaxing way to spend the evening. It was also fun to dress up and take a break from classes.
On Sunday night, Todd, Takuma, Braydn, and I all went to see Rome’s soccer team play against Milan. The stadium was filled with enthusiastic fans, colorful waving flags, and lots of singing. The atmosphere was thrilling and Rome won the game!
