2018 Reggio Emilia Blog

This year our educational travel group will be in Reggio Emilia, a wonderful city, located in the heart of the Emilia Romagna region.  As with our previous educational trips, students enjoy learning Italian in the morning and traveling to the nearby towns and attractions in the afternoon.  A two-week itinerary has been planned which will take the group through Sunday, October 7, when they return to the US. 

We asked our students to contribute a few thoughts and reflections of their daily experiences. They will be posted here along with a selection of photos.  Follow along as they recount their adventures, inside and outside the classroom.

Pre-Travel Adventures!

Prior to any educational trip, participants gather together for a variety of activities.  2018 has been no exception.  Early on, in May of 2018, ICC native Italian instructor, Romina Montanari, introduced the group to Emilia Romagna.  Romina grew up near Modena, and it was wonderful to learn more through Romina's personal experience.

Nine of the fourteen group members came together at the ICC and enjoyed Romina's discussion, as they sampled the food and wine of the Emiia Romagna region.


Then, in June, our thoughts turned towards food.  During a hands-on pasta making event, Romina lead participants in the process of making tagliatelle.  Group members took their creations home, and enjoyed their tagliatelle served with various sauces.

Gathering in July, group members enjoyed a delicious Italian meal at Broder's Pasta Bar.  With each opportunity everyone is getting to know one another better, and all are excited for the language and cultural experience.
