Trip to Anagni

Visiting cities is essential cultural experience of the students. In December 2018 the tutors of MESCI organized a collective trip to Anagni, province of Frosinone. An informative tour, organized by Pierpaolo Arganelli and led by Prof. Lorenzo Proscio from the Istituto Paritario Bonifacio VIII, told a beautiful story of the ancient Anagni also known as the city of popes. Students visited Cattedrale di Santa Maria Annunziata and Cripta della Cattedrale di Anagni with well-preserved colorful frescos and original cosmatesque floor dating back to the 13th century. After learning history of the city and tasting the deliciousness of typical Castelli Romani's wine students concluded that Anagni is a truly wonderful place to visit.
