The Festival of the Rificolona is an event in Florence where a procession of the city youth continue an old custom of carrying unusually and bizarrly shaped lanterns of colored paper on top of a cane rod.
I met with Chiara weekly to improve my level of conversation, pronunciation, vocabulary, grammar and Italian idiomatic expressions. Chiara is an excellent teacher and very patient. She is upbeat and I enjoyed studying with her. Our time together was very fruitful for me!
