As part of the end of semester events, last night Umbra’s Creative Writing students read their work at Loop Cafe. American and Italian students alike gathered around to listen to their classmates’ writings from this semester. Among the readings there were odes to gelato and gnocchi, essays on love, poems, and beautifully written prose about Perugia herself. The students’ best creative work is compiled into an anthology and distributed to each writing student.
Last night’s readings followed last week’s art show, where students showcased their drawings, photographs and frescoes. Yesterday student presentations at the local Ranieri foundation were held and tomorrow, there will be the chance to say arrivederci at the farewell aperitivo before the students depart.
Come vola il tempo…!
