Queensmead residents sample all things Italian

10th September 2019

Care South residents at Queensmead in Christchurch will spend a day each month taking virtual trips around the world.

The first ‘trip’ saw residents experiencing the Mediterranean country of Italy.

As well as sampling Italian cuisine, residents got a taste of the culture through the language, fashion, music and architecture. Residents also learnt basics such as ‘ciao’ (hello) and ‘buongiorno’ (good morning), before singing songs from the 1950s and 60s.

They also looked at Italian architecture and famous landscapes, among which are the Leaning Tower of Pisa and the Trevi Fountain.

Following that, there was an Italian-themed quiz with lots of laughs, and pizza with lots of different toppings.
