Livorno's School Children Broken in Gently after a Three Month Summer Holiday
Last Monday school children in Livorno (and most of Italy) went back to their classrooms after a break of more than three months. It was a particularly painful return to school due to a drastic change in the weather, the hot summer temperatures we had enjoyed here in Livorno up to Sunday turning overnight into torrential rain and thunderstorms, with the thermometer plummeting by more than 10°C! It was a fitting start to a new school year.
