Today we are learning about Italian Economics, Italian life and everything else that happens here. The country is not in a good place financially, and the government is very sketchy. Northern Italy tends to be more affluent than Southern Italy. Italians are very laid back, no one is really in a hurry here. Lunch is not usually less than 2 hours. Work can be from 10am to 12pm or 1pm and then resumes around 3pm or 4pm in the evening ending around 6pm or 7pm. I must say I like that!
Later in the afternoon, I had the privilege of visiting Ermenegildo Zegna’s showroom. What a treat!! I made a new Italian friend named Francesca Pedrazzi who was kind enough to show me around. There are three lines: Ermenegildo Zegna, Zegna Sport, and Z Zegna
Thank you Francesca for a fabulous time!!!
Kwanza is turning 20 today so we are going out to Old Fashioned to celebrate! Needless to say we had a great time!!!
