We met for a great lunch at Scio Rum. Menu: grilled red radicchio with prosciutto and pine nuts topped with shavings of Parmigiano/ spaghetti with cherry tomatoes and basil/ bacala in a milk sauce with soft polenta/ chocolate cake with white chocolate sauce. There were yellow mimosas on the table for International Women's Day.

Most of us did not make it into the conference room to hear the opening speeches because there were so many people. There was a cake for 250 people decorated with patchwork designs and prosecco. I missed the famous Veronese lady who comes to all opening receptions around town just to eat!
I was glad to hear the group was impressed with the exhibits they saw. There are still more to see in the next few days.

Students of the conservatory performed pieces written by women. Remember it was International Women's Day. We heard piano, violin and opera.
As for me personally, I was able to see many many friends from Verona and around Italy who came to the opening. I got a few new teaching jobs- bonus!
