Venice
I was part of a group of foreign correspondents to be invited to Venice after November's acque alte by the Associazione Albergatori Veneziana ( Venetian Hoteliers' Association) to assure our readers that Venice was up and running as usual. We visited the Centro Maree where they monitor the high tides, city hall for a press conference with Mayor Luigi Brugnaro, Caffč Florian, Harry's Bar, St. Mark's Basilica, the Doge's Palace, the MOSE, and backstage at the Fenice theater.


Treviso
I was a judge at the semi-finals of the Tiramisł World Cup held in Treviso from November 1-3.


Calabria
From June 21-23 With a small group of colleagues from the Foreign Press Association in Rome I visited the province of Cosenza in Calabria. Highlights of the trip for me were seeing the medieval manuscript, Codex Purpureus, in Rossano, also famous for liquorice, the national park of the Sila, the medieval monuments and archeology museum of Cosenza, and the citron groves at Diamante.
