Topic: Walking Through History in the Veneto
About the Speakers:
Janet (a retired Nurse Practitioner) and John (a retired engineer) moved to Vicenza, Italy in 1994 to work as civilians on a U.S Army post. They lived in the Vicenza community for almost 19 years and then returned to Seattle. They spend every Fall in Vicenza, except when there is a worldwide pandemic.Janet is currently serving as a consigliere on the Dante Alighieri Society of Washington Board.
About the Presentation:
Anywhere you walk in Italy you find history. You generate all sorts of questions about the origin of the sights. If you’re lucky you also find people living in the area who are eager to answer your questions. We will share our enthusiasm for the 52 Tunnels hike, the Dolomites and the city of Vicenza. Then we’ll look back on World War I and II history and recount stories from locals to explain the sights and the impact on people today.
