In the summer of 2018 I was with some friends from our group Vicenza Women of Color (VWOC) thinking about how 2018 was the year of the woman and how could we showcase that here in Vicenza. So we decided to have a photography exhibit in the city of Vicenza showcasing Women/Mothers/Soldiers, we called it Woman Warriors. All models and photographers were from the Vicenza Military Community (VMC). To see pics from our past event then click here. So as we are about to start Women’s History Month the VWOC and USAG Italy is pleased to present the Italian premiere of Women Warriors Part 2 Photographic Exhibition.

They give voice to the everyday heros who keep their families together through daily challenges, while maintaining their focus to fulfill their military mission. From […]
What should we do in case of a dental trauma? When you have young children, the falls that happen during any active type of play, or to kids who have just started walking, can sometimes lead to tooth injuries. When an accident occurs, don’t worry- most times a tooth that’s been knocked out can be completely saved if proper care is taken in the first 20 minutes. Reason why it is important to keep calm and know few notions on first aid, so that we are able to block bleeding until we reach the hospital or the pedodontist – the dentist specialized in children treatments. Read here the advice of the Centro Ortodontico Vicentino Orthodontic Center on what we should do. The Centro Ortodontico Vicentino Orthodontic Center is part of the Dentisti Vignato Dental Clinic located in Vicenza.

Bed and breakfast Agriturismo Crocerone is a family-run business, and once you step foot on the farm, you too will feel like part of the family. To get there, you will drive the Italian backroads, maybe even passing a tractor or two along the way. When you pull into the driveway, you can’t miss the large two-story traditional villa with the warm and welcoming facade. It’s hard to imagine that, up until it was re-purposed as a bed and breakfast 5 years ago, the structure was used simply for storage on the farm.

The sun is shining high above the Northern Italian region of Veneto. It’s hot and all I have eyes for is the blue swimming pool sparkling right in front of me. “Come,” it says, “take a dip. The water is lovely!” And so too is the scenery. Right behind the pool stands a carefully restored early 17th century manor house – all high arches and a square turret. Its yellow bricks are emphasised by the green rolling hills which serve as a perfect backdrop. By the fence, the purple blooms of a huge wisteria swish in the gentle breeze and in the garden classical statues peek behind rose bushes which are about to bloom. I am at Residence Cà Beregana – a peaceful and quiet nest where you find yourself in the heart of the Italian countryside and yet are only 3 km (less than 2 miles) away from Vicenza’s centre with its Palladian buildings and centuries-deep history. You know what makes your Italian trip really special?! Finding the right place to return to at night after a hard day of sightseeing and eating your weight in delicious food.
