What a wonderful time I had on your Italy Tour 2013. I wanted to share with you regarding my experience something fundamental that stands out in my mind. That would be your generosity. I’m talking about your gift of the Italian language, and your years of success in mosaic and building relationships in Italy. All this giving you the ability to make it possible to take us to the ancient sites with personal guided and translated tours, the private tours of exhibits prior to the show, introduction to world renowned maestros and their studios, the Spilimbergo classrooms and instructors and some of the best wine and food in the world.

On top of all that you were a gracious professional host making it an absolute pleasure to be in your company. You treated all of us as though we and the experience we were having was equally important to you. In the 8 years I have been studying mosaic this has been the most inspiring experience. I loved getting to know you better and would travel with you any day. Thank you so much again for making my experience everything and more than I’d hoped.
