The 34 students participating in NIAF's Amb. Peter F. Secchia Voyage of Discovery are continuing their exploration of Italy this week with a trip to Bevagna, a medieval town whose businesses shut down once a year for a week of re-enacting medieval crafts.
Each year, Voyage of Discovery sends college students of Italian American heritage to Italy to explore the land of their ancestors. This year's trip to Campania and Umbria will end tomorrow, after nine days.
