Field Trip to Acireale with teenagers

I went along with Ben and Mackenzie's Italian class on a fieldtrip to the city of Acireale. We visited hangers where the floats were being prepared for the carnivale parade, and the art gallery of the local library. I was amazed at the quality of artwork in their collection. We were told that they had over 400 donated works of art in their storage facility. They lack the space to show all of the work. We also visited an Italian school and had refreshments with a group of English students. It was a nice cultural exchange.
