MIDSHIPMEN SHARE T R AV E L S I N I TA LY Four Naval Academy midshipmen traveled to Italy this summer on a faculty-led cultural immersion trip. Midshipman 1st Class Tim Keller shares his experience: The goal of the program was to understand the importance of the Mediterranean Sea in a global context as well as to immerse ourselves in a new culture and gain appreciation and experience of a different style of living than that of our own. To fulfill this objective, we traveled throughout Italy, starting in the northern area of Tuscany, visiting the cities of Florence, Siena, and Pisa. We started our trip with a tour of the Italian Naval Academy where we met the superintendent and saw the Italian midshipmen in their daily lives. > > A RT I C L E
