Natale 2019 :: Parma

Friday, March 20, 2020
We were able to go to Italy for Christmas this year. Andy was also able to join, and being his first time in Italy, I tried to show him all of my favorite places. We spent the majority of the time in Parma, but also did a few day trips.
Siamo andati in Italia a natale e Andy e' riuscito a venire anche lui. Era la sua prima volta in Italia e l'ho portato in tutti I miei posti preferiti.

Wandering around the first night we got in

After dinner one night, we went to Fontanellato to see the castle all lit up.
Dopo cena una sera, siamo andati a Fontanellato per vedere il castello.

One of my dad's favorite places to go is Pontremoli to visit the museum of the Statue Stele. We went as kids, and let him take us through again. The museum has changed since we were last there, but we had fun.
Uno dei posti preferiti di mio papa' e' Pontremoli e il museo de le Statue Stele. Erano anni che non c'andavamo, allora abbiamo detto che c'andavamo questa volta.

After touring the museum, we drove to Lerici to make the most of the sunny day.
Dopo il museo, siamo andati a Lerici per stare un po' al sole e vicino l'acqua.

One afternoon, my uncle took Andy and I around Torrechiara. This is one of the many castles around Parma. We weren't able to go inside, but wandered around outside.
Un pomeriggio, lo zio ha portato me e Andy a vedere Torrechiara. Non si poteva andare dentro perche' era chiuso, pero' abbiamo caminato attorno.

Did I even go to Parma if I don't have a picture of the Palazzo Ducale?

With Simone, Andy, and my uncle, we toured the Teatro Farnese. The Theatre was built because the Medici family was going to be coming through Parma and Ranuccio, the Duke, wanted to welcome them. It is a stunning theatre.
Con Simone, Andy, e lo zio, siamo andati a vedere il Teatro Farnese.

We ended our trip with a delicious lunch at Scarica full of salumi e torta fritta!
