The Institute re-opened its doors this weekend to welcome the Summer 2009 students to Perugia. After a smooth day of arrivals at the Fiumicino airport in Rome, Umbra staff members accompanied students up to the historic center of Perugia. Everyone stayed over at La Rosetta Hotel for their first night in town and enjoyed a typical Umbrian meal for dinner. Today the Umbra staff are busy hosting Open House and helping students settle into their new apartments. The weather is gorgeous, the cafes have brought out the white umbrellas, and the new students are outside exploring their new campus — gelato anyone??
