We had a wonderful visit from our Perugia Delegation earlier this month: Giorgio Moretti from Antica Deruta ceramics, Professor Valerio De Cesaris and Valentina Seri from In. Relation Office at the University for Foreigners. We thank all of the people who helped plan the visit, and who assisted in greeting our visitors to make them feel at home. We appreciate, in no particular order, grazie mille a:

We were able to show our guests around to many places during the visit, including the University of Washington, Pike Place Market and Pioneer Square, Casa Italiana and Piazza Perugia at Julia Lee Park, and a tour of the Amazon Spheres to name a few. We very much look forward to more visits with our big 30th anniversary coming up next year!
