I treasure this photo! This sweet woman was my Latin professor in Rome. She's from the north, near Milan, and she studied Latin in school from the time she was ten until she was twenty! She is a philosopher and she speaks Latin - very well, too!
Her being from the north, I just love to hear her bash Rome: "Roma, is impossible to live in, just impossibile!" she explains.
It's always a joy to have a smoke with her while in the cortile of the Ang and to hear her speak of her home in the north "in the valley" or the current state of things in Italy. Ti voglio un mondo di bene, Clementina!
