    Hi Alex, I was in your position in Italy 25 years ago - I took the Apprentice Academics, which is now Ancient Arts course. It's hard studying at a distance... Now I am only in Italy over the summers but I would be happy to meet up with you if possible next summer to see what you're up to and...
