Pizza, Pasta and the Past: Adventures in Italy

Earlier in June, a small group of Tabor students and two Tabor chaperones traveled to Italy. The focus of the trip was on art, history and culture, as they worked their way through thousands of years of history and hundreds of miles of coastline. The group of nine travelers began and ended the tour in Rome, heading south to the very tip of Italy’s boot before crossing into Sicily, trekking across that island including hiking an active Mt. Aetna, and heading back north to Rome. Along the way, they swam where the Ancient Greeks first landed in Sicily twenty-five centuries ago, saw Roman theatres, Bourbon castles, and Norman cathedrals, decorated meticulously by Arab Muslim artisans. In between times, they explored cities and towns, hunting down the best gelato and pizza, while trying to understand how today’s Italians live.

    With the persistence of environmental change, people across the world are experimenting daily with different adaptive methods on the ground. With support from National Geographic and The Redford Center, filmmaker Alizé Carrère has been documenting innovative human adaptations in places such as Madagascar, Bangladesh, Vanuatu, Norway and the United States. From floating farms in Bangladesh to ice pyramids in the Himalayas, these stories reveal incredible ingenuity and resourcefulness in the face of environmental adversity. Alizé shares her experiences from the field looking at these unique examples of human adaptation, reminding us of the most important trait that has allowed for our continued survival on earth.
