After 30 years at Dartmouth and becoming a veteran at alumni travel (I have done about 10 trip with alumni) I have to admit that I have never looked forward to another trip like this time. It is wonderful to be able to travel again and I look forward to meet all my fellow travelers. I am a professor of Italian and Comparative Literature who has spent a lifetime working on Mediterranean migrations as all my books and articles attest. I also teach a number of other topics: fashion, history of fascism, film, literature, and environmental humanities. In a recent trip to South Africa, I also discovered that I am a penguin whisperer: I call, they come and enjoy my company. I wonder if on this trip to the Alps and the lakes I will not discover some other hidden talents.
