In the 1300s an association of doctors set up a dorm in Perugia for orphans. 700 years later the dorm is still there, and the residents decided they wanted a rematch. Two months ago an Umbra Institute soccer team defeated the dorm’s team in soccer, the Italian national sport. Last week it was basketball.
Unfortunately, Umbra’s dream team was unable to bring home the gold. In a cross-over game organized by Umbra Director for Community Affairs Francesco Gardenghi, the Italians beat their American guests 47-43. Everyone noted with irony the reversal of games, and a good time was had by all.
