A message from Milan
Rosario Pascale was an exchange student at Warwick in 2013. Here he shares a bit of positivity during these difficult times:
"It's been a long time since I've walked down Warwick Road and through the Student Union square. I hope all of the students can come back soon to campus and enjoy the best university life there.
In the picture you can see my experience of lockdown in Milan. I made this pizza for the first time at Tocil, at the south-east of the University of Warwick, in 2013 exactly - it's also improved!
A big hug to every one of you. Wishing you all the best, and stay safe."
