Italian Servas experience

Servas is a wonderful organization, with many friendly, interesting people who hosted host us in their homes and became our friends.  Our experience in Italy brought us together with people who are very knowledgeable about the history, culture, geology, and politics of the island.  Many helped us to learn more about the military bases, the contamination and cancer epidemic, and the birth defects being caused by the weapons testing.

In Sardegna, we stayed with Servas friends in Macomer, Sassari, and La Maddalena - including 3 different homes in and near Sassari.  We had a nice dinner in Sassari with all of the hosts and friends, at a unique restaurant where they serve a kind of chick pea pizza.  We also stayed with Roberta and Renzo in Milano.
