The Cortona Experience

"It was an amazing experience where I could immerse myself in the local culture and work on a design project with that local first-hand knowledge. I enjoyed the food: pasta, gelato and pizza, and loved the daily nightly walks through the medieval town to the Gelateria with the group. This medieval town was beautiful."
