By Francesco Podeschi 3D Hi! I’m Francesco and I’m 16. I’m from San Marino. San Marino is a small republic in the center of Italy. It has there are 30.000 inhabitants and is sixty square kilometers wide. San Marino has got 9 areas called “castles”, and I live in a castle called Serravalle. In Serravalle there aremany small towns, mine is Falciano.The most important symbols of San Marino are the three towers: Guaita,Cesta and Montale on Titano mount.San Marino is only 15 km far from Rimini, a city full of Roman ruines.Rimini is also the city where my school is. The name of my school isAlberghiero Malatesta. It is a hotel and catering school for cooks,barman, maitre and hotel managers. I chose it because I’d like to becomea chef and open a restaurant in LA in the USA.My school is special because it is in an old building which used to be asummer boarding residence for children to go swimming and sunbathingon the wonderful sandy beaches just near my school.In winter I like looking out ofthe window at the lonely beachand the blue sea. I love it somuch!!!
