Days 5-7: Pesaro

Pesaro, Italia

semi-overcast 80 °F

Yesterday and the day before I spent the day studying Italian language and music at the camp called “Si Parla Si Canta,” in which I am a part of this month. I had morning classes today, and then in the afternoon I visited Pesaro with a few kids from the camp.

Great pictures! That piece of art looks like a work by Arnaldo Pomodoro. Do you know if it is? He has a piece at the Vatican Garden, which you may have a chance to see. He also has a piece at the Meijer Gardens in Grand Rapids, MI. I love his work.

Italian Sparrow looks neater than the English house sparrows we have in Illinois. I guess it is the same species- weaver finch.
Have a successful visit to opera camp.
