Yes, We Can… or Si, Si Puo’!

For once, the six hour time difference between Italy and the East Coast worked to our advantage! Yesterday afternoon, Umbra students finished up classes just in time to catch live coverage of the presidential inaguration festivities in Washington, DC. Students gathered in the lounge in Umbra I and in Professor Michael Chiariello’s classroom up in Umbra II to watch the speeches and swearing-in ceremony, and several pubs around Perugia showed the Presidential Parade and other inaugural events into the later evening. Tanti auguri for President Obama!
