Every year, Festa della Repubblicca falls on June 2 as the national day of Italy.
And this year, on our campus, in celebration of the 71st anniversary of the founding of the Republic of Italy, our students majoring in Italian and English Translation in the Department of European Languages held a gala party in honor of our Italian teacher, Nico and local Italian language teacher, Tian Yu.
Their classroom was decorated with colourful balloons to form the pattern of an Italian national flag;many a time, they rehearsed national anthem of Italy; adding a finishing touch was a cake featuring colors from the national flag of Italy.
Before they cut up that cake, students and teachers watched a video of an army parade on Italian national day.
Pleasantly surprised, Nico expressed his gratitude and appreciation for their careful preparation.Students also enjoyed their own taste of Italian culture in real time.
