In honor of my friend Bruno Calore’s birthday I want to share the postcard he sent me the other day in reply to a letter I wrote him earlier! The postcard he sent me is of Padova, or as we call it in English, Padua. Padova is in the Veneto region of Northern Italy. My friend Bruno studies in this gorgeous city. It is also known as the city where Shakespeare’s Romeo flees to after having killed Tybalt in Verona and is also the place of setting for his Taming of the Shrew.

So, as a tribute to my friend’s 25 years of life, I share this postcard with you in hopes of peaking your interest in visiting this most lovely of cities situated not far from Venice! Enjoy! Tanti auguri, caro Bruno!

Un bacio per tutti,
