Although I am no cultural expert, I think that I am beginning to understand some of the nuances of Italian culture.  I am living in Florence, Italy for 4 weeks and studying interior design through a fieldwork drawing course and an interdisciplinary/ collaborative Italian design course. When I think of Italians, I describe them in three words: Proud, Passionate and Poetic. All the Italians I have met are very proud of their nationality and culture.

The view from Richmond Hill in southwest London. William Byrd II named the city of Richmond, Virginia after the English town Richmond because the view of the James River resembles this of the River Thames. #london #travel #history #vcustudyabroad (at Richmond Hill, London)
