Summer has finally started to creep through Perugia’s ancient and winding streets, but warm weather isn’t the only new addition to Italy’s “Green Heart”. On Friday, nearly 130 American students representing a host of states and schools touched down in Rome’s Fiumicino airport, eager to kick off a spectacular month and a half summer session at the Umbra Institute.
Having moved into their apartments and completed orientation, students can now look forward to a whirlwind of activities and special academic events – whether it be an afternoon trip to a castle in the countryside, or a tour of Perugia’s various nooks and crannies – all designed to give students a truly immersive vision of Italy and the region of Umbria.
Check back soon for updates on how the summer’s going!
