Each year, NIAF sends a selection of Italian American college students to experience Italy for the first time through our Ambassador Peter F. Secchia Voyage of Discovery program. This week, 34 students will depart on the 2010 NIAF Voyage of Discovery, a 9-day trip to Campania and Umbria from May 29 to June 8, 2010.
Envious? Don’t be! Now you can participate too! This year’s Voyage of Discovery participants will be blogging daily about their experiences in Italy. Visit www.niaf.org/voyageofdiscovery/for the latest on how these students are experiencing the land of their ancestors.

This week on the blog, you'll find videos of participating students introducing themselves and a post describing the trip's first planned visit to Campania's Vallo di Diano. Once the students are on the ground in Italy, their daily posts, images and videos will create a fascinating travelogue.
