It all started because I wanted to take a class in Italy with artist Nancy Medina. I had watched her postings when she did this trip last summer and it looked like a blast. It was. Organized by Piero Pagliardini and Katherine Cohen of Italiana tours (click this to see details of Nancy's 2018 workshop during TRUFFLE season) - the entire week was amazing. It was truly a case of #deathbyitalianfood - the worst meal we had was wonderful. Once our group arrive in Bologna we were whisked off to LeMarche and Saint'Angelo in Vado - a truly under appreciated region of Italy. We had a terrific schedule of painting classes, activities and trips to wonderful spots in the region. If you'd like to explore a truly unique Italy, contact Itlaiana tours!
Sigh. Where to next?

I am grateful for the many blessings of my life as it is today.
