With a techno-savvy generation of students who show up in Perugia with laptops, iPods, and digital cameras, it’s no surprise that there are plenty of photos being taken. In the first Photo of the Month contest, Rachel Paton won the award of best photo among tough competitors. As students leave Perugia for distant sights in Europe or stay close to home in Umbria, most of them have their cameras ready. Rachel’s winning photo, “A Cemetery that Meets a Vineyard,” was taken near the town of Gubbio. Rachel wins free dinner at Quattro Passi Pizzeria for her entry. Complimenti!
