Orvieto meets Innsbruck at Villa Mercede
Tiziana Rastelli and Emma Louise Cheeseman in the studio. Special live guests from Austria: Petra Leeb, Franziska Pirkl, Pino Seiringer, Martin Schmidt and Simon Seeber of BG Sillgasse School Innsbruck together with the President of Lingua Sì Piero Salituri.
There’s nothing more exciting than a friendly football match with the locals to mark the end of a 6 day study trip in Orvieto for 49 Austrian students of BG Sillgasse Innsbruck. 9pm kick off at Villa Mercede football ground last night led to a fast paced and above all entertaining game between mixed Italian-Austrian teams, all aged between 16-18. Final score? 9:3…but the laughs, new friendships and a few beers afterwards were far more important! The competition, organized by Lingua Sì in collaboration with RadiOrvietoWeb, will continue in June between another Austrian school group and the people of Orvieto. Are you 16-18 and like playing football? Send us your names and come and join in!
