It’s Autumn in Rovereto and I’m thinking about investing in a hard hat, because those chestnut trees are shedding conkers like they’re weapons.
It’s still too early for the Halloween pumpkins that decorate the Neptune fountain to come out. Once you’ve witnessed one annual cycle here, you start to know what to expect from Rovereto’s festive calendar. It isn’t too early, though, for the leaves on the trees to change, so there are lots of beautiful leaves in reds and browns that haven’t yet fallen from the tree.
And because it’s Autumn, I’ve started back at school with the community Italian lessons again. I won’t complain about them, as they have a very accessible price, but so far (one lesson in), my expectations for the amount to be learned are not so high.
