Saluto da Verona

Hello from Verona!

I am here for Jan Plan, along with 23 other Colby kids, studying Italian literature and experiencing all the city has to offer. Verona is amazing, with its historical sites, stores, restaurants, and the most abundant holiday lights I have ever seen! This photo is from the La Befana ceremony. At the beginning of each year, Verona builds an enormous witch effigy (La Befana) to represent all the bad from the previous year. The town then has a big ceremony and burns the witch to rid the upcoming year of the same problems. Hopefully the good year will follow us back to Waterville!

Ciao ciao,
Maureen Quinn ’12
