School trip to MantuaStudents from our Form, 3AB, arediscovering their own town
Mantua- on 13thDecember 2012, on a cold market day.We are students at a Catering and Hospitality School in Gazoldo, a littletown 15 km from Mantua. We have discovered elements of art andarchitecture typical of Mantuan palaces and churches.St. Andrew’sBasilica
A town surrounded by lakesThe three lakes around Mantua are an important water resource and,in the past, they were also a line of communication.Today they are a place for fun and sports, such as canoeing. The floraand fauna are rich, especially in July and August, when water liliesare in full blossom. But there is also the other side of the coin: in thesummer, the water of the lakes gives origin to lots of humidity as wellas to very annoying mosquitos. Photo byDall’AglioAnna Maria
Our town is a preciouslittle jewel protectedby its lakes.Protection is,sometimes, isolation,lack of facilities;but our town also hasan originalpersonality, maybefragile, yet unique,like any human being.(Masso Clarissa and Form 3AB)
