  • Three weeks of incredibly varied and rich experiences in the Tosco-Emiliano Appennines can have no other effect on a person. My head and heart are still filled with impressions, images, sounds,tastes, and insights from the many people and landscapes I encountered with you and the students. You are truly fortunate to have such an unspoiled cultural and natural resource in your park and its surrounding communities.

  • What a special time with a fantastic group of dear students and instructors and talented Chefs in Italy. Our heartfelt thanks to you, Giacomo Berselli and Chef Rocco Verrigni for all of your efforts to make this journey a reality. Joan Dembinski - Schenectady County Community College
  • Home after truly THE most phenomenal experience. I met some amazing and interesting friends that felt like family in the end. We traveled together stopping in many cities such as Nettuno, Rome, Ferrara, Bologna, Venice, Parma, Asti and Milano. We experienced history, culture, agriculture, food, wine and participated in culinary classes from some outstanding chefs. I would have never been able to experience this without SCCC, Chef Rocco Verrigni and the Marco Polo Institute ...thank you! Rocco Verrigni Kelly Honsinger - Schenectady County Community College
  • “So our Trip to Italy is over. The time flew past and we are now home. It was such a great experience and I am really glad I got the opportunity to go. Our group of girls was perfect and we got through it together! Classes went great and working was even better. The weather warmed up while in Rome and we got to experience the real "Roman Weather" that everyone kept telling us about! It was time to come home and see my family but I am already missing Italy! I hope I get the chance to go back soon!” Kacie Monahan Paul Smith’s College, Hospitality Student

  • We were given the opportunity to accomplish so many things in such a short amount of time and we accomplished them together as a team. I would certainly recommend another international internship amongst our department. International internship offer a different prospective that what we are use to and took me out of my comfort zone, it forced me to do things that I would not normally do D'Ann Cochran Lamar University
