Workshop della Pizza

Last night was the Umbra Pizza Workshop…but with a twist. As part of Professor Robert Proctor’s “Intensive Italian Through Culture” program, students got a brief history of pizza from staff member Zach Nowak, made pizzas with the direction of headpizzaiolo Felice, and ate their handiwork while chit-chatting in one of Perugia’s most quaint pizzerias, but all in Italian. Proctor’s innovative program–intensive Italian taught not only in the classroom (grammar, pronunciation) but also outside the classroom, in museums and pizzerias–seeks to immerse the student in both the Italian language and the Italian culture. Round Two of “Workshop della Pizza” is tonight at 7:15pm (or is it 20:15?): meet at the Fontana Maggiore in the main square.
