This week the Intensive Italian through Culture Summer Program kicked off its Monday lunches at the La Piazzetta. The restaurant, with its Etruscan walls and modern twist on classic Umbrian dishes, sets the stage for these social gatherings. Each Monday, professor Dr. Proctor accompanies small groups of studenti to chat, only in Italian of course, over a delicious meal. An Italian university student also joins in the fun to get to know students and share their language. Other culture events this summer include guided city and museum tours, winery visits, a day trip to Assisi, and much more. What better way to explore the Italian language, history, and culture!
