About The Event
In August, you will be able to virtually travel with us to a different Italian location every week and talk with locals without leaving your home!
Our coffee talks will take place every Thursday from 8 am 8.45Am PDT (5-5.45Pm Italian time).
During the talks, we'll visit a special place accompanied by an Italian friend. You'll interact with him or her and ask questions like if you were physically there!
This week our special edition of Talk Like an Italian will be in Lecce, a city in Italy’s southern Apulia region known for its baroque buildings. Built in the local soft creamy limestone with dazzling architectural surprises around every corner, Lecce is a Baroque masterpiece. Its spider's web of streets offer a kaleidoscopic mix of long-range vistas, alluring glimpses and playful perspectives that have long enchanted visitors.
Our special guest Loredana De Vitis will give us a tour of the city! We’ll explore the main plaza, the narrow streets and we’ll have a special coffee, the “caffe’ leccese”.
