Welcome to our blog! Students will be taking turns daily to share their observations, experiences, and feelings throughout the program, on the intersections of Italian youth with schools in the new multicultural Italy. We are studying how schools/instruction are organized in Italy and how they are experienced by students and families. In addition to classes, guest lectures, visits to schools/organizations, students will be interning in two primary schools with a large immigrant population.
CAMPO DEI FIORI: UW ROME CENTER VIEW
Friday, May 2, 2014
Today is international worker day and we have one day can have a rest. I saw Stephanie in the morning talking about the research project. It is really helpful for me to establish a structure of my research paper and I am also excited about this research paper because this would be my first time to write a research paper. Later on, we went to Vatican. Last week we took the bus to Vatican and it took us about 40 minutes. So we thought it might be far away to our apartment. However, Claudia told us that Vatican just took 20 minutes by foot. That is so funny because the bus took a detour. When we arrived there, the line was really long to enter the church. The line-ups to get into St. Peter's made it an event to enter and enjoy this truly remarkable basilica. Luckily, people moves really fast and we went into St. Peter's soon. The inside is massive. It is the largest interior of any Christian church. Climbing to the top of the church and seeing the overview of Rome is a good choice for anyone who want to go to Vatican. The climbing way is tiny but it is already the most comfortable way for church. There are too many people there and all from all over the world. It is so interesting even though we are still in Rome, in Italy, however, we are already in another country.
