2009 – feb 28th Last week of February in review Bolzano, Bozen – a long day starting at 5am and ending at 7pm as we rolled back into Centrale Station. A week of hard work with extensive reward. Visiting the Last Supper – beautiful, the unbelievable power and money of religion… always evocative, it never fails to startle. The finalization of two more trips, Galileo’s…

The Following represent my personal opinions and should in no way reflect the opinions of any other. Each weekend I’ve been taking long walks through Milan. One of my favorites was last weekend – a great walk from Bocconi University down Viale Blingy to Ptza. XXIV di Marzo. After, I walked down along the canals and took photos of what I found. Many interesting little…

Feb 14th, 2009 David Berger 1 min read

An interesting conversation… Thought provoking to say the least, a startling opportunity to reevaluate priorities… a moment of self introspection and appraise what makes my anima and cuore satisfied. Last night I had an amazing time at the Consul Generals Residence. We tried seven different types of wines presented by a sommelier paired with different chocolates in honor of Valentines Day. Three sweet, two strong…
