Ciao, Italy! Easter week celebrations at Alexandra House

Published: 9th April 2021

Residents at Alexandra House enjoyed a week-long celebration of all things Italian when the team decided to bring plenty of Mediterranean vibes to the home. Everyone took part in a fun quiz, made postcards from Italy and took a virtual tour of lots of famous landmarks, including the glittering lakes of Como and Garda. There was quite the discussion around Pompeii, Herculaneum, and the terrible volcanic eruption of Vesuvius. Residents, Pat and Guy were very interested in all the photos with Guy sharing many memories of his seven trips to Italy.

Of course, there was pizza and the residents made a variety of different toppings which they tucked into for lunch. This was followed by a lovely supper of antipasti including cold meats, cheese and breads, all washed down with a chilled glass of wine followed by a refreshing gelato!
